Gigi is three now.
She has an immense vocabulary.
But she has the proverbial "cute little kid speech" and it's hard to understand her sometimes.
I need to start correcting her now that she's three and her vocabulary needs to mainstream itself.
I am with her everyday (it's a 24/7 love-hate thing we have going on) and so I can understand 98% of what she says.
I do have to translate for some people.
If I don't understand her, I go to Zoe.
If Zoe doesn't understand her, then nobody can.
Here's a sample of "Gigi-speak"
Yater = water
Tipper = picture
Teeppa = pizza
Poop = ? (she says this a lot just out of the blue...)
Temple = pencil
Lots of things end in a “ed”Doneded
Zozo hitted me
This morning she commented on Chad's "tatoond" that's on his arm.
She's a hoot.
She's an entity all her own.
She's been called a free-spirit, jester, clown, and just yesterday I dubbed her as "the dog that lives under the porch who has no socialization."
That last one came after she had a screeching fit in the library.
I wish I could have taken her tipper to show her later how crazed she was.
She would only laugh at the tipper, though.
Then look at me and very seriously declare "poop!"
