Kabouter's words (I)

Since Kabouter becomes more and more verbal, I thought it would be good to log some of his verbal "wisdom" from time to time

  • Mama  ( mommy)   both still interchangeable
  • Papa (daddy)           both still interchangeable
  • kaka (poop)  :          without a correct meaning, is more a random sound he can make
  • Nee (No):                 No
  • Ja (Yes):                   Yes (but sometimes just a sound to imitate rather than a positive confirmation)   
  • Tuuuta  (a siren):    living only a few blocks away from a police station, a hospital and a prison means that we hear a couple of sirens coming by each day.   And he has a toy fire truck and books with siren sounds as well. So lot's of tuuta's in his life.
  • Bumba:                    a yellow clown in a baby tv show with lots of merchandising. Currently his biggest friend
  • (N)og:   (more) :       he wants more food
  • (G)edaa(n): (done): he is done drinking/ eating or done brushing his teeth
  • Dadaa:                     when waving  (not necessarily when saying goodbye)
  • Hallo:                       as diversification from only saying dadaa to people or talking to the phone
  • Lalalalaaa:              he starts to sing along
  • Die   (that):               pointing at something. Most of the time we have no clue what he wants.
  • Tuut  (pacifier)         he wants / searches his pacifier
  • Iau  (cat)                   Miaauw, the sound of a cat
  • Atchie (sneez)          All sneezes are repeated and are very very funny
  • Apuu/ Apie               It's a mystery but has something to do with food
