She is very efficient with her language. Before the Scooter Pies were born, she mostly just pointed and yelled when she wanted something. This was effective, so she did not try anything else. After the Scooter Pies’ birth, Baby Bean discovered that she had to talk a little because she had to rely on someone besides Mom to get her what she wanted. She bumped up her language just enough to be understood by more of the family and halted there.
She calls both of the Scooter pies “Ant”. When we try to differentiate, she ignores us. All the big sisters are one name, “Na Na.”
She has several words that are actually whole sentences:
“Wa-doin?” Means “What are you doing?” If you answer this query, she will say “Oh.” In a very matter of fact way as if all is clear to her now. Then she will repeat her question. “Wa-do-in?” You can give the same answer. She will say, “Oh.” Again. And so it repeats.
She also says “Ont-ilk”
When you give her milk. She will say “Kankyouwelcome”
