an expanding vocabulary

Baby girl is adding to her vocabulary.  Currently, anything that is alive and not a person is a “doggie”. Everything else is “nana”. She also calls me “momma” (which is alright with me).  She has been know to say “poppa” on occasion, but a lot of the time he is “momma”, too.

Recently, she added another word (I was trying to figure out if it is a noun, pronoun, proper noun, etc….if, after you read this, you know please tell me…this especially applies to my father-in-law, the former high school english teacher).

She was getting into some frames with photos in them that I have been meaning to hang up on the wall (for months).  I took the frame from her and said, “That’s your big brother at his first Christmas.”

She replied, “Bo-bo.”

I said, “Yes, that’s your big brother.”

Again, she said, “Bo-bo.”

Sounds like the little guy just got a new nickname.

home is…an expanding vocabulary and sibling nicknames.

*My little sister couldn’t say Stephany, but could say “Ne-ne”, so that was the beginning of my sibling nicknames (which evolved throughout the years).  Did your sibling have a nickname for you?  If so, what was it?  Did it change throughout the years?  Do they still call you by your nickname?

    My guess is she can imitate the first sound of “big brother” and it comes out “bo bo.” That would be proper noun. Speaking of which, English not english). Sorry . . . it’s in the blood.

    Thanks, FiL. Yeah, she is definitely trying to mimic the sound of “Big Brother”.
    I am sure that a lot of my grammar and writing mistakes on this blog get under your skin. I’m planning a post about my “blog voice” and why/how I write the way I write…stay tuned.
