evan's dictionary

Here is a comprehensive guide to understanding the words that come out of my son’s mouth, listed in alphabetical order by pronunciation.

a-bah -> ball (said constantly and repeated multiple times when he spots any kind of ball)
ba-ba -> bye-bye
bwis -> books
cancake -> pancake
canket -> blanket
da mor -> good morning
down -> down (said repeatedly every morning when he’s awake and wants to be rescued from his crib)
gowah -> go for a walk
ice -> outside
kah -> rock (repeated ad nauseum when he sees a rock of any size… who knows, maybe he’ll grow up to be a geologist)
mo -> more
ni-ni -> night-night
pwis -> please (said sparingly)
yi-yo -> lion

Voila!

I love "yi-yo" that is so precious!! I remember when LM was little, he was in the backseat of the car demanding something that sounded like "yo-yo" and I kept thinking he must mean "oreo" but that wasn't it. I kept guessing and trying to figure out what in the world he wanted. Turns out, he wanted his "yo-yo". Duh, mom!!

you forgot "dub," the term we tried somewhat successfully to force him to use in reference to uncle w. but really, i won't consider him all that smart until he wises up and says my name. :)
