|The Chatty Cathy's|
2012 Toddler Slang Dictionary
According to: Avery and Lauren
A-E = Avery
Why-A = Lauren (don't ask me how they got that one...but they both say it)
Tee-Tee = Taylor
Bubba = Brodie (they originally started calling him BoBo but we QUICKLY made them relearn it as Bubba...we just kept thinking of BoBo the clown!)
LoLo = Grandma Laurel ("Avery, who has chickens?" "LoLo!!")
Chee = Cheese (the most commonly requested food item in this household. Lauren requests it for literally every snack and meal.)
Ah-hee = "hot" anything, although usually in reference to hot dog. Again, how they got Ahi out of Hot, I do not know.
WaWa = self explanatory right?
Gobbee = Strawberry
BooBee = Blueberry
Nana = Banana
Shoes = Shoes...yay!
Yeg = Leg
Ahm = Arm
Mine = Man, also Mine
Yady = Lady
BuhBoon = Balloon
Beeg = Big
Elmo = Elmo :-)
Mo = More (usually Mo Mo, just to be sure we got the request for more!)
Bi = Bike, also Bite
Pay = Play
Plus the usual suspects...mama, dada, hi, bye, yeah, night night, booboo, nose, eye, up, down, off, on, uh-oh, baby, yay (always with clapping), and woah!
Ummmmm....off the top of my head that's all I can think of but they pop up so fast now that I'm sure I'm missing some.
Oh wait...did I mention NO??? Most popular word in toddler history. Ever.
And, if an ear piercing shriek could be translated as a word, trust me I would put it at the top of the list. 'Cause shrieking is a beloved pastime for my girls. Sigh. I guess living through toddlerhood will just make the silence that I will eventually get to enjoy in the oh-so distant future all the more beautiful. Until then, my doting husband keeps me fully stocked up on earplugs :-)
