Bella’s Language

I mentioned a while back that Bella’s language has really been developing over the past few months. It has been so much fun watching her go from single words to being able to express pretty much every thing she is thinking. She often refers to herself in the third person so you’ll see a lot of that below.

Here are a few of our favorite Bellaisms at 2.5 years of age:

  • “Bella no I see” (I can’t see)
  • “Catch dat school bus”
  • “No do dat” (don’t do that)
  • When talking about fire trucks (we pass by a fire house on the way to and from school every day) she says that they need to eat. I ask her what they are eating and she says “chicken”
  • When we have the GPS on in the car, she always repeats the right and left directions, i.e. “exit right daddy”
  • “Ms Tina eat dinner my house?” – asking almost every day if her teacher is coming over to eat dinner at her house
  • “Bella has gas”
  • “Bella no have no more” (I don’t have anymore)
  • “Doodin?” (what are you doing?)

And her funny pronunciations:

  • “ollipop” (lollipop)
  • “buttbo” (dumbo)
  • “I know” with a certain intonation (I don’t know)
  • “ooze” (use)

We’ve been having so much fun with this age. There is definitely less crying and less frustration now that she can communicate what she is thinking.
