LL Says:

Puppy dog is "Mmmm-mmmm." Cookie, or any kind of dessert, is "Cookook." All of her grandparents are "Puh puh," until you remind her that some of them are called Nana or Grandma or Meme or something. "Puh puh" can also mean puppet. Or hippo. Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? is "Poh Ber! Poh Ber!" Lulu's sister is "zhehsheh," Lulu's real nickname is "nehneh." That is also apparently the word for anyone her size. Crayons, markers, pencils, etc. are "cah" (I think she's saying color). Lulu loves "buhbuh" and will tell you that in the kitchen, "buhbuh" are "hah!" I'm not sure she understands that she shouldn't touch hot bubbles, but she'll tell you all about them. Boo-Boo the bear is "bobo;" Homer and Elmo are both "momo" or "emmo," as are all of Elmo's friends except Big Bird, who is "birbir." And she's never seen Sesame Street. "Buh" is also the word for buttons, which Lulu likes to push. She likes to "raah, raah, raah" in her sister's little rocking chair. She'll ask you to pick her "uh-P!" or to "hep" her "dow!" She likes to, "Go! Go! Go!" And when she's going she'll tell you "Bye-bye!" She really enjoys eating "nyanuhnuh" and reminds me to get them at the grocery store, which I do if they're still a little green (cause I don't like super-ripe bananas). Husbandguy swears she said umbrella the other day, but I didn't hear her.

Now when she says "taco" she gets a little mischievous glint in her eye. She's telling a joke!

And there is a bunch more. I don't remember having to translate this much for Pete when she was learning to talk. Then again, I don't really remember Pete learning to talk. DH and I don't remember her first word. We both swear that she woke up one morning talking in sentences and hasn't stopped since.
