wattsie-isms, version 2

It's been quite a while since I blogged about my spunky two year old's funny sayings and phrases, so while my Christmas photos are being uploaded and touched up, I thought I needed to record some before I forgot them.

Watts has never been too keen on calling me Mom or Mommy or even Momma. She's never called me anything close to those names. From the beginning, Mickey Mouse was "Mauw", but now he's simply "Mouse", and I have been given the name "Mauw." I love it. I embrace it.

Sometimes, Watts won't be able to find me in the house, and I'll hear her little raspy voice say, "Mauwwwww, where are ewwww?" Makes my heart flitter. And then sometimes, I'll call her from another room, and I'll hear the pit-patter of little feet as she comes running to where I am as she says, "Mauwwww, I right here!" And if it's been a bit since I've seen her, or if Mat brings her and puts her in the bed with me in the mornings, she'll say, "Hi, Mauw. What doin'?"

Just a few weeks ago, she finally caught on to the concept of the moon. And now, anytime we are outside when it's dark, she loves to look up in the sky, point and say, "Meeeeuuuun!!!" And it's not all of the time the moon that she sees; anything that's in the sky can be the moon: a start, a light on a light pole, a light on a sign...anything that's lit up.

We just had Christmas, and Watts loved, loved, loved to open presents. She called them "pesants", and she also learned about Santa Claus, whom she affectionately calls "Santy Claws." She even saw him in a store front this morning and said, "Wow! Santy Claws!"

And speaking of Christmas, we took her to ride the Christmas train at Noccalula Falls a few weeks ago. She had the best time! She loves to talk about the choo! choo! And since we can hear the whistle from the house, she loves to listen for it when we are out side. Here's her saying "choo-choo!" while we were waiting to ride the train at Noccalula...

My mom had her outside playing with her the other day, and a loud car drove by. Watts put her hands to her ears, and she said, "Ohh! The noise!!!"

Also, a few weeks ago, my mom was here at our house, and she was leaving. Watts saw that she was forgetting her phone on the table, and she picked it up and ran it over to her and said, "Here, Muss-see. Don't forget phone!" And speaking of Mumsy, she says my mom's name so, so cute. She loves to talk about and go see her "Muss-see." She says it too, too cute. Listen for yourself!

Ama-Watts also has a special way of telling us no or letting us know she doesn't want something. Instead of saying "No," she says, "NOOOOTE!" She has also come to learn about riding horsey and tickling people. She always wants to ride "haussy" and "tick tick" you.

AWA will spill something in the floor, and then look at me and say, "A mess! A mess! I made a, made a mess!" I caught a little bit of it on video...

For her birthday, she requested simply "fried fish" for lunch. We took her to Top O' the River for lunch, and she had a blast quacking at the ducks...

I also taught her how to sing "Happy Birthday" during her birthday month. One night on the way home from church, I recorder her singing it. I love how she wishes me a Happy Birthday during her song, too. Sweet girl.

Watts loves both dogs and cats. She loves to see cats out and about, and she always exclaims, "kitty cat!" In fact, she went with Mom to see Papa in rehab yesterday, and she remembered there being a cat there from the last time she was there in October to see Mimi there. Smart girl! She loves Gran V and Pop's dog, Luci, too. She loves to hold her and call her. She'll say, "Woooo-she! Woooo-she!"

We always go the back way to see Gran V and Pop at their house, and Watts knows that when we go that way, we are going to see them. About 1/2 mile down the road, she'll start yelling for "Gran V Pop!" She loves to go see them. When she is just talking about Pop, she calls him "A-Pop!"

She has started learning about ways we go other places, too. One day two weeks ago, the babies and I were headed to Winn Dixie, and I passed the road I normally turn on to go to the church. She got all upset and started pointing back to that road and was yelling "Da-eee! Da-eee! (Daddy!)" So I had to turn around so we could go see Daddy at work at the church. Smart girl.

During football season, I had to keep instilling in her a love for all things Roll Tide, so of course I taught her how to say it. This was my favorite attempt she made...

And not only am I instilling in her a love for football and Alabama, but a love for Republican politics as well. One night, I was talking to her about Ronald Reagan, and she wanted to tell him hi.

Anytime Watts wants more of something, she says, "Muss. Muss!" She loves to ask you to "oten" (open) things for her, too. She calls yogurt "juicy" and loves to eat chips. During Halloween, she loved to point out "punkins" to us. When she is about to do something, she'll say, "Here dos!"

She enjoys running around our coffee table (or anything she can run around) and say, "Round and round!!!" In the bathtub, she loves to lay on her stomach and say, "I schwim! I schwim!" Her favorite outfit is a diaper and shoes, and usually her Doc McStuffins stethoscope so she can give check-ups on demand all day long. She loves to sing the "I Feel Better" song from Doc McStuffins by singing, "I better! All better!"

She always watches tv in her PB Anywhere chair at the end of the coffee table. It's her favorite place on earth, and Ford has taken up residence beside her in his NapNanny. Watts loves going night-night, and she will grab her milk right up and head to bed-- 99% of the time with no questions asked. She loves her Lambie, her blanket, and her crib.

She can count to 14 or so, and she loves to help you sing ABCs. My favorite part is when she says, "L,M,O, Peeeeee!"

And finally, anytime she tells someone bye (or "bye-eeee!"), she will touch her hand to her mouth and make an "Mmmmm" sound like she's giving a kiss, but she'll never actually give you a kiss. Silly girl.

We love our spunky little girl. She's so much fun and brings so much joy to our every day lives!
