She's A Talker

Abigail saying "water":



I have been meaning to post an update about Abigail's language development for a while, but I kept forgetting. This list may not be complete, but it covers most of the words that Abigail uses regularly.

Words she says:
Mama
Dada
Hi
Cheese (Chz)
Juice (Jsz)
Shoes (Shhhhz)
Bubble (Buh-boh)
No (Doh!)
Water (Wa-wa)
Night-night (ni-ni)
Thank You (Da-do)
Food (bouf)
Diaper (Da-da, with a different inflection that means "diaper")

Animal sounds that she can make (and match with the correct animal):
Doggie - Woof, woof - (ooh-ooh)
Kitty Cat - (Raou)
Cow - Moo - (Boo)
Duck - Quack, Quack - (Ah-ah-ah) (rhymes with (At-at-at)
Lion - Roar - (Rraaaah)
Wolf - Howl - (AOoooo)
Horsey - Neigh - (Ne-e-e-e)
Elephant trunk noise (what's that called, anyway?) - (Bwooooo (while sputtering her lips)

Words she signs:
More
Milk
All Gone/All Done
Jesus
Bye-Bye
Bath
Diaper

She can also communicate a host of other things using vocalizations, hand motions, and pointing. She's one smart cookie!
