So I was upstairs reading to Daphne on BumbleDay last weekend, and one of the books we read was Jimmy Fallon’s “DADA.”
While I was reading, it occurred to me that Daphne is already speaking to us. Sure the sounds she’s emitting aren’t, according to Hoyle, words, but she’s been “talking” for a long time now. Which is to say she’s making audible noises that are meant to convey meaning.
So I’ve started working on a baby glossary. Here are a few examples:
GRAAAAH! *arm flap*
Translation: I am the unhappiest child that has ever graced this planet. And it is entirely your fault.
GRuh-OOO! SA! *kick*
Translation: Oh, is that the Baby Brezza I hear?
