More on Josey's speaking

I wanted to record the WAY that Josey talks. 

Being only 26 months, of course there are words that she doesn't say correctly.  Don't get me wrong- she talks wonderfully and is like a small parrot, because she will repeat ANYTHING that she hears. 

The way she mispronounces things melts my heart over and over again. 

Mama, I need a wikey.  (meaning wipee)

Wanna go check cows at minmill pace.  (the windmill place- her favorite place in the world- more on this later.)

Turn the hight off.  (meaning light)

I'll be back back.  (instead of right back)

I payed with ToeNail today.  (played with Cole Neal- the little boy that stays with her at the babysitter's)

There are many more, but of course I'm drawing a blank.  She is completely the cutest 32 pound little red headed package there's ever been.  Mom says she looks more like me everyday, but that I was never as independent and hardheaded as Josey is.  I'm not sure this is a good thing.  :0

The amount that Josey talks never ceases to amaze and surprise me.  When school got out in May, she was saying one or two words at a time, and much of the time, I couldn't even understand her. 

Here is a common Josey sentence now- "Mama, let Baby A outside, please."
Or - "Go feed cow Windmill place.  Mama get gate.  Look! Baby calves. Black calves."
Or- "I wipe my nose on my mama's shirt."

Every single day, she comes up with something new to say. She is way more perceptive than I usually think she is.  She loves to imitate me, which may not always be a good thing. 

Being a mom is so wonderful.
