Poppy Language

Poppy is 20 months now so she is also getting a little vocab together - I will share this list on the proviso that you do not judge my parenting.
"milk", "donut", "ice cream" - the three main food groups

"turtle", "spider", everytime she spies a spider she shreaks in fear, just like her Dad, I tried to catch her mid screech in the photo
"mine, mine, mine" who can forget "no, no, no", "bounce" and "here I am" useful for when she runs away, all the time!
"elmo", "sponge bob" (?) even though she doesn't like TV
"ready" and she is ready for anything, scooter rides, running, anything involving dirt
she also likes to call men "daddy" when we are out, slightly disconcerting for the poor men that are madly counting back 9 months in their mind.
My personal favourite is her universal words, hot works for hot or cold and down is either up or down. No amount of correcting her is changing her mind either.
Caleb on the other hand, never draws breath, his eyes twinkle and he whispers, "you can't say the bad word, can you. Daddy is just really naughty."

Poppy and Melli would have a hoot together - Melli's word for either up or down is Up! (and you can't talk her out of that either!)

p.s thanks for sending me get well love.

Ah ... as I'm sure Argy and Bargy would agree, Poppy speaks the language of love ... donut!! Bargy's universal word is definitely "No!". :)

Love the photo of Poppy - she is such a cutie.

No judgement here, Poppy has a fine and most acceptable vocab. The Smurf likes to point at his bum and shout cracker when he farts.

Ahhh.. good to see you're getting her into dirt and bugs and insects young!! It's always where the most fun is had as a child (at least for me it was anyway haha). Love that photo!
