My vocabulary has expanded since Cooper graced our world. I say "Gah-Ding-Kah!" in an animated voice to him at least 1000 times a day.
It's a silly new word. It means "Well hello there!"
It can also mean "Here's your favourite toy!" or "Come cuddle me!"
I mentioned to my husband that I should stop saying "Gah-Ding-Kah!" because it's sort of irritating & to be honest, completely non educational.
Peter sympathised and said he feels the same way about his new word, being "Whooosh-kah!"....which means "I'm gonna throw you up in ther air!" or "I'll race you to the door!" or "I love you IMMENSELY!" in baby talk.
Cooper has Hives. Damn Hives! Wha?
Gah. Gah. Gah-ding-kah.
He must be allergic to something new in his diet.
Guess I'll have to stop tossing cashews and pistachio's at him to catch in his mouth.
And he was getting soooo good at it too.
