Cheech talks a lot. I mean, A LOT. The funny thing is that about 90% of what she says makes absolutely no sense. Whether it's because she puts strange words together or because she simply makes up words, we find ourselves trying to hide our giggles every time she opens her mouth. In many ways, I am really excited for her to start speaking full sentences, but a part of me will be sad when this incredibly hysterical stage is gone. I have some of her gibberish on tape, but I still want to be able to remember as much as possible, so I figured I'd keep record of some of it in this post.
Here goes... Real Talk with Cheech:
"WUF WUF WUF!"
-barking at our neighbor's dog
-"what's that?" when we don't answer quickly enough.
-your guess is as good as mine on this one, but she says it ALL the time.
-she uses this response when asked a question. for example, "is it nap time, cheech?" "nope."
-this, however, is used when she's actually told to do something. for example, "cheech, it's nap time." "no."
"yeah? yeah? YEEEAAAH!"
-she tends to say this completely out of the blue as if she's just been asked a question. it is quite confusing.
-i don't know if she doesn't actually know how to count from 1-4, or if she just doesn't know how to say the numbers 1-4.
-the only number she seems to recognize visually (she gets pretty excited about it)
-this is what she says if i ask, "where's papa?", which implies that he's sleeping.
-getting "mama" and "papa" straight can sometimes be difficult.
