Let's play a game--Guess That Word! - Page 9

post #161 of 250
New one, "be-er" sounding sort of like a cross between "beer" and "bear" but with two syllables.
hint 1
Warning :: Spoiler Ahead! Highlight to read message!
it matches the real first syllable really well

hint 2
Warning :: Spoiler Ahead! Highlight to read message!
the word has three syllables

Not "weeble" but it would be cool if we had some Weebles!

It is "weasel" and the toy is a jack in the box that plays "Pop Goes the Weasel"...I usually sing the song too and one day he just started going "Wee-oh, wee-oh" and now he'll go find his "wee-oh' and bring it to me

I have two new ones, you know you are probably watching TOO MUCH Nick JR. channel when....

your 16 month old has switched from "hi" to "ni-hao!" when greeting you

When he starts yelling "ah-ee-bah!" at the TV along with his siblings ("arriba" thank you Diego)

finding it frustrating that the babe is learning Spanish and Chinese from the TV set but not Arabic from his daddy....who claims to 'forget' to speak to them in it....



as far as be-er a 3 syllable word that starts with be--- I absolutely am drawing a blank. Is it an animal? A toy? An item? A food? I need another clue
post #164 of 250
it's a food

and there might be arabic kids videos available online and then your dh would feel more like they understand him and that it's worth trying?

I'm beginning to think my boy is way behind on vocabulary. Here's what we've got for your translation pleasure:

Hhhheee. or Khheee.

Mum. (this is not to be confused with Mama, which means either of his moms as well as nursing).

be-er 3 syllable food starting with be

I'm fresh out of ideas after a mental run-down of my fridge unless it's a type of bread??
post #167 of 250

I'm bad at this game i can't guess

cow would be 'ow' not 'aw'.....I will come back, I'm trying to think of what sound my baby might sub with something that sounded like an 's'

We have a new word in the tub tonight. He was standing and ended up slipping onto his butt I said "Oh, God!" and baby said "Oh, GA!"

edited to add--baby was not hurt at all! it was sort of a graceful sit-slip, you had to be there.

figured the baby was fine since he repeated your exclamation instead of freaking out.

"Sahhh" is "frog". I only know what she's trying to say because she signs it and points at a picture of a frog.

Yup! Heeeee refers to most animals.

Anyway, two new ones

'pos (rhymes with "cross") it's an animal, normally 5 syllables


and, easier, 'plesauce

I've got a new two-worder! DS 16 mos. at the park today "A-hiw wi!"

Now nobody is probably going to get that first word since I took their names out of my siggy--it's Zahir.

'wi' is missing an end sound and does not start with 'w'

this is being screamed at his sister. (who he now calls "Fi-fi"--Sophie. We have A--er (Zaker) and Fifi. O-ihee-ah is Olivia the televised pig.)

I realized today we watch WAYYY too much Nick Jr. He has a favorite character on the Wonder Pets (Ming-Ming, the duck, who gets yelled at with "Ming-Ming" and "kaacck kaaccck kaack" He sings to the Olivia song. He knows "Wow-wow" Wubbzy. And he's started occasionally greeting people in Chinese! ("ni-hao!" from KaiLan)

In other news check out my siggy surprise---he FLIPPED the other night laughing and pointing at the TV yelling "Baby, baby!" while I was watching something with a baby. hopefully this love carries on through the next year or so....
