Talking Baby

14 Sep

Just documenting something I think I’ll want to remember later:

The Ninja Baby has quite a good vocabulary for a not-yet-two-year-old, but she has a few quirky things that she does with some words.  As far as we can tell, she is completely oblivious to the fact that she does this, so we sometimes have to sit and puzzle for a bit to figure out the real word she is trying to say.  I’ll give some examples here; see if you can figure out what she is saying.  Once you figure out the rules, it’s not hard, and then her statements make a lot more sense.  These are just some of these words that we’ve run across:

  • Piws
  • Ducks
  • Topsed
  • Ticksy
  • Tiws
  • Tories
  • Kirts
  • Weepsing
  • Weepsy
  • Poons
  • Wipsing
  • Widesing
  • Moothsie

Another fun thing is her use of the -ing suffix to turn any word into a verb.  Examples:

  • upping
  • downing
  • baconing
  • kitchening
  • shirting
