Baby Talk


Something strange has happened in our house since the arrival of Baby A…. we have developed some new vocabulary… which makes no sense whatsoever.

Why does having a baby reduce you to strange words which seem to appear from nowhere?

  • Hicky bobs – hiccups… a funny word anyway and surely not necessary to be made even more strange?
  • Pandy roos – hands…. these are Baby A’s favourite thing to put in his mouth at the moment, especially when I need to get him dressed
  • Kicky Joe – used in a sentence “ooo you are a kicky joe this morning”… I mean what the hell am i on about?
  • Napnap – nappies…. lets have a look at your napnap
  • Nakey Noo…. Baby A’s favourite way to be

What are you on about Mum?

The funny thing is, we speak to him in normal vocabulary usually, as I know how important it is to help him learn… but don’t even get me started on all the songs we make up for him….

“Are you a cheese and onion pasty? Are you a beef and onion pie…. I’m neither, I’m a sausage roll…” Yes we are going slightly insane in this house!

What crazy words or songs have you made up?

  1. Awesome! It’s all about “windy pops” and “oh Grumbles, you are such a Grumble-Bea” (like a Bumble-bee but grumpy) in this house x

  2. I make up little songs as I go throughout the day, for getting him dressed, eating etc. I’m always telling my OH to just ‘sing something’ to him when he’s being fussy but apparently that’s only a skill I have!! Look at those eyes!! Adorable 🙂
