"Macy be-bup!" (or mommy, daddy, baby, etc)- She makes sure that we know she has woken up, as if we couldn't tell otherwise. It is cute when she's awake in her crib just playing, reading, or talking to herself. Sometimes I know it's time to get her because she'll say, "Mommy, Macy be-bup!"
"Stop it!"- Sadly she learned this one from me. I forget that she repeats so much of what I say. I tell her a lot to stop doing things (hitting me, throwing food, etc)
"No, no, no, no, no!"- This one is also from me. I say this a lot if she is about to do something dangerous or that will make a big mess.
"Bye! Later! Ya you!"- After the last two negative sayings I'm glad I at least taught her one good saying. She always says bye and love you whenever she goes anywhere, even if it's to the next room. I hope she never stops saying it.
"Rocky baby!"- Macy says this when she is holding her baby (or other doll/animal) in the cradle position and rocks it back and forth. She does this a lot lately because she's really into playing with her dolls right now. She also tells me to "rocky baby" if I'm holding the doll.
"Macy big girl. Baby sisser in mommy's pummy."- She says this if I accidentally call her baby. This is her way of reminding me that she is a big girl and the baby is in my tummy.
"No, Macy turn."- Her nice way of saying, "No it's mine!" or "I want to do it!"
|Macy wanted a turn to put her dishes away.|
"Papa's house." Anytime I ask her where is she going, or where we should drive to she ALWAYS says papa's house. If she ever pretend talks on the phone and I ask her who she's calling she ALWAYS says Papa.
"Here we go!"- We know she's excited to go somewhere when we are walking out the door and she says this.
"Macy yucky."- Macy's way of telling us she doesn't like a food. We're pretty sure she picked up yuck from Jacob when we stayed with them.
"spicy juice"- We have a canister that can make any juice or water carbonated. A long time ago, when she first tried a carbonated drink, we told her that Addie called soda spicy drink. At first Macy only called carbonated things spicy juice but now she can be persuaded that any juice is spicy. This is helpful when I don't feel like making carbonated Crystal Lite (her favorite).
"Mommy be-bo."- This is what Macy calls pony tails and she loves to "put" them in my hair. She brushes my hair and places the elastic on my head. Daddy can have be-bo's too if he's around. This started a little after I started to put pony tails in her hair.
"No thank you please."- Macy is pretty good about saying thank you when I give her something or saying no, thank you if she doesn't want something. However, I very often have to remind her to say please when she asks for something. If she doesn't feel like saying please she says "No thank you please." That's her way of saying, "I don't want to say please!"
"Tant to mommy!"- I love hearing her saying thank you to me. It comes in all different tones, speeds, and fluctuations of her voice.
"More daddy!"- I never hear "more mommy" and it's because she has so much fun with daddy. She'll say this if he's been tickling her and leaves the room or anything fun like that.
"More milk!"- The only thing she says when she wakes up in the middle of the night. We give her another cup of milk and she goes back to sleep. A terrible habit I know. We are regretting the day we let her first do that.
"Mommy bye bye."- This is said when she feels like being alone. Sometimes it's at home and she wants to do something without me, or sometimes it's at a store and she just wants to wander around. Today for the first time she told me bye bye and then "No back." She didn't want me to come in and check on her like I usually do. Thankfully she's not mischievous yet and I don't come back to anything broken or colored on.
"____________, where are you?"- If she's looking for her doll, purse, or the neighbor's puppy she'll call out for it.
"Macy princess."- She'll point to herself when she does this. We had to convince her that she wanted to look like a princess and have pretty princess hair in order for her to take a bath without screaming. Her shampoo bottle has pictures of Ariel, Cinderella, Aurora, and Jasmine. If she puts on a dress she'll say, "Macy princess dress!" and get so excited.
"Purpo scisor"- Her second favorite activity is to cut paper into little pieces using her purple scissors. She was so excited when we bought them for her.
"One minute."- Ja and I aren't sure who she picked this one up from. We both will tell her, "I'll come in a minute" or "you can in one minute." When she says it she'll hold our her cute little finger so we know she means one minute.
"Macy gasses."- Ever since we spent time in sunny California for Christmas Macy has become very aware of the sun and does not like it in her eyes. She started to always want my sunglasses if she saw me wearing them. I need glasses too so I bought her her own little pair. She loves them very much. Her ears and nose are too small to keep them on her face so she just holds them up. As you can imagine, they don't last long on her face but she loves to hold them anways.
"More bumble bee!"- Also since our CA trip Macy has been fixated on bees. She said one went in her eye and has talked about bees ever since. One day her and Ja were sitting at her little red table coloring and Macy noticed the huge bumble bees flying outside our window. In order for her not to get scared Ja rolled a piece of paper up to use it as a telescope to watch the bees. Macy thought that was really fun and frequently requests to do it again.
"Cheese!"- She won't smile at the camera but at least she'll say cheese!
"More baby poo poo!"- I know I've talked about this before, but she still loves to change her baby's and penguin's diaper. She'll say "yucky poo poo" as she wipes it off. She asks for one wipe because I've told her she can have a wipe but only one.
"Wast dis?"- Any time Macy sees something that is new, out of place, or out of the ordinary she asks, "What's this?" It's like she's saying, "What's happening here? This isn't how it works." The other night we had to help with Cub Scouts so we didn't leave the church until it was dark. We walk outside and Macy is looking around asking, "Wast dis?" I realized she is usually in bed by the time it's dark or at least in the house. I explained that it was dark because the sun went down. The next morning it was dark in the house because it was cloudy outside. Before I turned on the lights she was running around saying, "Mommy dark! Mommy dark!" She was so excited about her new word.
