My dad finally got Kalena to start saying “knife” instead of “wife” but now she super-emphasizes the N sound. So it’s more like NNNNN-ife than just knife. Anyway, here are some other things she says right now that I don’t want to forget.
She says “last-er-day” instead of “yesterday”
My dad sometimes calls her “snicker-doodle” but Kalena says it “stinker-doodle”
I may have mentioned this already (I know I said it on twitter) but she calls ginger ale “gingerella”
She knows now that Will’s name is William (and not actually Buster) so even though she still calls him Buster most of the time, she does sometimes call him Will-whem.
When Brian is working out she’ll combine the phrases “doing his workout” and “working out” and tell me that he’s “doing his working out.”
She’s getting better at saying prayers unassisted, but often when she starts saying things she’s thankful for she’ll open her eyes and just start listing stuff in the room until someone redirects her.
Okay, this one takes a little explanation. You know how sometimes you’ll finish a word or phrase with “what” to clarify something? (For instance if I said “gestational diabetes” and someone responded with “gestational what?”) Well, Kalena has picked this up, only she just adds “what” in the middle. So, if she asks what’s for dinner and I tell her potato soup, she’ll say, “Potato WHAT soup?” And I don’t know how funny this comes across on the old blog here, but it is hilarious, and she does it ALL THE TIME.
Anyway, that’s all for now. Although, I’m sure I’ll think of more as soon as I publish this.
See, I came up with another one. She constantly asks, “What you guys talkin’ bout?” She wants to make sure she’s included in the conversation
