Are you still keeping that chronological list of the glow bug’s first words?? I wish I’d been doing a definitive one for Miss Bee! I tried to recollect them all today in order, and I’m sure I’ve mixed some up.
If I was a supermummy type, I’d be doing something awesome with these; I had the idea (curiously, it’s not all over Pinterest, although it’s totally the sort of thing that should be) that they should be on a quilt or something.
Or on stepping stones, leading up a pretty garden parth? Or at least on a wall somewhere (this was the best example I could find, in a quick search)? Many of us record our children’s heights obsessively, and even see it as something worthy of display, but words are SO much more fascinating, aren’t they??
Here are Miss Bee’s words, in her mother tongue English and her father tongue Hungarian, in order as best as I can remember. This is pretty approximate, I regret to say.
háp háp [quack quack]
wow wow [woof woof]
owl (her first English word!)
book book (you know, what chooks say)
No/nem [ie 'no' in both languages]
bye bye/pá pá [ie 'bye bye' in both languages]
kitty/cica [ie 'kitty' in both languages]
Luca (her BFF)
Yoyo (the sock monkey)
Tom (Grandma and Granddad’s dog)
I’m gonna start being more vigilant about recording these! I’ve got the feeling we’re on the eve of a word explosion. The last nine of these have debuted in the past week!
