Words, Words, Words

Gwen loves to talk. Not on demand, mind you, so don't expect a performance. But when unsolicited, she fills our ears with so many words!

Body Parts (she'll point to these too):
"a'ye" = eye
"nohz" = nose
"ee" = ears
"mow" = mouth
"toes" = toes
"shat"= hair (she says 'hat')
and she'll also point to her belly, chin, cheeks, knees, and shoulders

"gack-gack" = duck (quack quack)
"ki" = kitty (she also signs it and sometimes says "meaw" instead of "ki")
"gi" = doggie (she also signs it and sometimes growls)
"pish-ee" = fishie (also signs it)
she literally 'roars' for lions and bears, moos for cows, chirps for birdies
signs bear, bird, and frog

"wow-ah" = flower (she also signs it: it is so cute when she inhales like she is smelling it!)
signs tree, outside, sun, rain, and on rare occasion she'll sign play and dirty.

"go" = coat (accompanied by sign)
"gock" = sock (accompanied by sign)
"shuuuu" = shoes (accompanied by sign)
"shat" = hat (accompanied by sign)

"mmmmm" = milk (accompanied by the sign)
"cra-koh" = cracker (accompanied by the sign)
"mo" = more (accompanied by the sign)
"all gaah" = all gone, all done (accompanied by the sign)
"kay" or "kin" = candy (usually she just reaches and whines for this one, let's be honest)
signs eat, drink, banana and communicates VERY well whether she wants to eat something or not by emphatic head movements of either yes or no

"baa" = bath (accompanied by the sign)
"buh" = bubbles (accompanied by the sign)
"booh" = book (accompanied by the sign, and usually a book thrust in your face)
"beee" = binkie
"gah" = giraffe (her stuffed critter for sleeping)
"peas" = please
"day-doo" = thank you
"poo-poo" = change my diaper
signs for light, upstairs, downstairs, friends, and share

"ma-ma" = mommy (with the sign)
"da-da" = daddy (with the sign)
"ba-bah" = grandpa (with sloppy sign)
"mm-mah" = grandma (sounds a lot like mommy, just watch for the sign)
"bay-bay" = baby (with the sign)
"mmmmmm" = kiss (and she usually does!)
