|No words for the angry fists shaking...|
All done (at the end of each meal, along with his hand waving, baby-signing arm motion) = "eh eh"
Bless you! (following sneezes, of course) = "eh eh"
Uh-oh...(like when he intentionally chucks his spoon on the floor) = "eh eh"
Love you! (when mommy shamelessly tries to get him to say it back to her) = "eh eh"
The End (as in, after each book we read) = "eh eh"
"esssssss" means many things, too:
Star = "esssssss"
Snow = "essssss"
Yes = "esssss"
But there are other, fancier words of noteworthy praise, such as:
Home = "OOOOHhhhhhh" (intonation counts for a lot when he squeals this happily from the back seat)
Fish = "ish" (first word, actually, next to da-da)
Flutter, flutter = "fa fa fa" (in a whisper, he repeats this when referencing butterflies)
Milk = "meh" (I am so thankful for that baby sign language...)
More = "meh" (see the difference from the one above?)
Sizzle, sizzle = "sa-sa sa-sa" (like when I'm frying his tofu)
And of course, drum roll please, DAD means dad, and MOM means mom. Got it?
This kid knows what he's talkin' about!
