Baby Language

Yesterday, Yiyi was speaking in French. Or was it Swahili? But GrandPa said it was Baby Hainanese. Ha ha ha....

She has been in talking mood for the past few days. Sometimes talking gibberish to herself non-stop.

Papi : Yiyi, what are you doing?

Yiyi : Kala la kalu ba bu laka

Papi : he he he ....what are you holding?

Yiyi : Kila bu ba ooo wah ooo wah.......

She seems to be experimenting with her voice, making different sounds, flicking and rolling her tongue and making sounds from her throat. But when we put Yiyi with her cousin who is 5 months older than her, both of them seems to understand each other, talking in baby language. Which reminds me of a movie few years back. Baby Geniuses. It's about a secret code or language that baby talks to one another, and some bad guys (I think) were trying to crack the code.

So for the past few days, Yiyi has been talking and talking, and all of us were trying to figure out what she is trying to say. Can't wait to go back tonite to hear her talk again.
