Words words words

The other day Ken and I decided to write down a list of all of the words Julia knows at this point… I feel like she has just entered a period that people have warned me about that occurs from about 20-24 months when kids have a huge explosion in the number of words that they know.

So here is her list of words as of today, May 22, 2014 (along with some funny anecdotes).  I’ll try to keep updating it over the next few months as she learns more and more!

Nice (this was her first word, and she says it while rubbing her face sometimes in a not-so-delicate manner)

Apple

Banana (which she pronounced “nini”)

Noodle (“noonle”)

Milk (“muh”)

More (also “muh”)

Turkey

Cracker

Challah (which she uses to refer to any bread-like product, including pound cake and muffins)

Coffee (“cocky”)

Hot

Mommy

Daddy

Bubbie

Zaydie

Grandma (“Gagee”)

Grandpa (“Papa” or “Gapa” or “Gapapa”)

Jonah (“Jojo”)

Marlee

Adam (“Adah”)

Up (“uppa”)

Bye Bye

Hi

Night night (She loves to put her stuffed animals, baby dolls and even Ken & me to sleep by putting them down face-down, covering them with a blanket and patting them on the back while saying “nigh nigh.”  She also will put our hands to sleep by putting them palm down and patting them.)

What’s that?

All gone!

Moo

Baa

Meow

Woof woof (which she says anytime she sees a dog)

Ooohh ooohh aaahh aaahh (monkey sounds!)

Roar

Agua (No, not water but agua.  There’s one Spanish-speaking kid in her daycare who calls it this so all the kids call it this.)

Out

Elmo

Baby

Mine

Kitty

Doggy

Puppy

Fishy

Eyes

Teeth

Nose

Book

Poopoo (she has recently started reliably telling us when she has a poopoo in her diaper–supposedly this is an encouraging sign when it comes to potty training)

Yeah

No

Remy, Jacob, Eleanor, Yoshiki, Kaname, Will (kids in her daycare class)

Bubble

Mickey Mouse/Minnie Mouse

Flower

Pretty

Knock knock

Tree

Tickle tickle (this was another one of her first words, after “nice”–she says it while tickling her toes!)

Car

Row row (as in “row row row your boat”)

Beep

Shoes

Please

Thank you

Open (which sounds a lot like “up” and “apple”)

Rice (comes out as “ri”)

Ice (which she pronounces the same as rice)

Strawberry

Cheerio (which she pronounces “rio”)
