Pippi Translated

If you hang around Pippi for a little while, you will see that she jabbers a lot in a language that sounds extremely foreign. If you listen carefully, however, you will hear bits of English coming through. But even those words require translation.

Boogie - any kind of bug; she does an excellent job of pointing them out!
But - belly button; she likes to show you hers
Flower - all green growing things, even trees
Hair Bow - anything that goes on the head, this includes helmets and giraffe horns
Hop Hop - bunnies and hamsters; the bunnies frequent the spot under the bird feeder and were named first, the hamsters were later given to the boys as a gift; they both look very soft ~ she just wants to squeeze 'em
Max - all dogs; one of our dogs is named Max ~ poor Max, he does get squeezed
Mommy - all adults
Mommy KaMommy - a special mommy name reserved just for me, thank you Pippi
Moan - cellphone; she likes electronics
Milk - all beverages, such as, milk, juice, pop, even mixed drinks; if we are out at dinner and I have a strawberry margarita, she just will not be content until the waiter brings her a virgin one ~ diva!
Nipe Nipe - Goodnight or going to sleep
Poo Poo Diaper, Oooo, Nasty - anything that is gross; this is apparently what she thinks when she looks at butterscotch delight
Up and Down - balloons, going upstairs, the trampoline
Watch - movie time

I don't know about you, but I can see the relation. Of course, all of these terms come with genuine tones and priceless expressions. Our exchange of important information is evolving ~ wonder what we will be talking about 10 years from now. Ummm, scratch that thought.

Sincerely, fro me to you.

How great that you have made a list of all that. I have a list SOMEWHERE of what words my kids were saying on their first b'day.

Gorgeous. I love this age. Thankyou for visiting. I love your layout and header. The bin was a mail order here in Australia from Innovations.

I love how they have their own little language. That was the inspiration for my blog title. The Bean's babbling that we dubbed Beanish.

I LOVE her term for anything gross! Kid-language is a fascinating field of study...
