The last several posts about Jake’s progress in therapy have been fairly serious. This week is just going to be cute and fun.
We work so hard to correct Jake’s speech, that I forget how funny he can be. I’ve already forgotten some of the funny ways he used to talk, so I decided to write down, and share, some of his funnier sayings.
Buttons: Buggins as in “want push buggins!”
Here we go: Heedee go
Computer: Beeler or Pooter
Emile (Jake’s friend): Meoh
The dogs collars are called “doggie keys” since they sound like keys rattling.
Tail and towel: Teeoh
Jacob Smith: Jakum Miff which has progressed from Geekaw
Hey, dude: Hey, Doot
Monkey: Ginky. “Ginkys” are Jake’s favorite, so there is Big Ginky, Funny Ginky, and Leoh Ginky (Little Ginky)
Flush toilet: Lock toolet
Help, please: Hulp, peese
No barking!: No bahking!
I love you: Ahloo.
Some of the funny things he says, correctly, but still make me laugh:
Oooh, light! Which he says almost constantly.
One, two, three, four, five, yaaaaaaaay!
Up zip instead of zip up.
Whenever I weigh myself he cheers and says, “Yay, Mama!”, which is so nice, especially when the scale isn’t being nice. 🙂
I really am amazed at how much clearer his speech is getting. Before I know it, speech therapy will be over and he’ll be speaking clearly. I’ll be thankful when that day comes, but for now I am going to enjoy all the funny things Jake says.
