olivia is a late-talker, in my opinion. you know, with all my vast parenting experience. i am clearly an expert on these matters.
anyway, until very recently she didn't really say much. don't get me wrong, girlfriend is VOCAL. always has been. but more of a secret robot language than anything decipherable as english.
the new words and phrases are coming like crazy now, just like my friends said they would. i can't keep up, but i'm going to try because SOMEDAY i will transfer this stuff to her woefully empty baby book.
here are the latest, in no particular order (and their translations, if necessary):
"i yuv you!"
"kitty? whey ah you?" (wait a moment, then) "i oh know!" (i don't know!)
"hun tah? ah you?" (insert a variety of names here...)
"hun tah!!!" (she thinks EVERYONE she sees is hunter. she ADORES him.)
"pah pah" (purple)
"yeh yow" (yellow)
"boo booooo" me: olivia, do you have a boo boo? olivia: yeah (ALWAYS followed by her pointing to some fake boo boo that needs kissing.)
"i see it!"
"potty!" (yes, it's a potty. no, she doesn't do anything other than sit on it occasionally.)
"no no!" (her friend noah)
"kee kee!" (her friend kaitlyn)
"wa wa" (water, obvs)
"ceer-oh" (not to be confused with cheer-ohs, ceer-oh means cereal aka oatmeal)
"out DIE!" (where she always wants to be: outside)
"hyman" (SIMON! OUR CAT.)
"keh yee" (keli, our other cat.)
"max" (auntie heather's dog)
there are so many more. she has a ton of animal noises, probably most of them? and makes a monster face and growls if you ask her for it.
2.0 is trying to kick his or her way out of me. this kid has got to weigh 19 lbs. 33 weeks this week. OMG.
