Toddlerese

Doodle has gotten into Hide and Seek lately. We play a Marco Polo version of hide and seek that goes something like this:

Doodle, from hiding spot: "HIDING!"
Parent: "Where could Doodle be? Marco!"
Doodle: "Polo!"

...and so on, until we find her and she requests that we find her again. But last night she had a new variation. Trying to get us to come find her, she yelled "Marco!" I replied with Polo, but not enthusiastically or fast enough. This prompted Doodle to yell "MarcoMarcoMarcObama!"

---------

One more example of Doodle's toddlerese: her request for lunch today was for a "cheesedia," aka a quesadilla. How's that for starting spanglish early?

These are so cute! We're about to enter this phase with Kaia. She has some words she has made up, but nothing like this so far. I remember blogging about Taiten around that age too. They are just so cute.
