The Continuing Adventures of SuperPreemie

Ee-yah Ah! Ee-yah Bah! Datdat!*

Posted on: June 21, 2006

This morning, Shoshanna dumped her grapes out of her bowl, popped it on her head, and declared “Ee-yah Ah!” For those who don’t speak her language, that means “It’s a hat!” She’s been using “ee-yah” for “it’s a” for a while – I’m sure it stems from us responding, “Yes! It’s a …” when she started naming objects. The thing that struck me as remarkable about the bowl this morning was that it was the first time she’s played “let’s pretend” in that way – turning an object into something else – without grown-up prompting.

Other new words over the past 10 days or so (this list is in no way exhaustive):

stick (tih), eat (eee – spoken, not just signed), drink (dih – again, spoken in addition to signed) hat (ah!), door (doh), jacket (datdat!).

I’m sure there are a bunch more, but I can’t think of what they are off the top of my head.

*It’s a hat! It’s a ball! Jacket!
