Garrett Speak

Please continue to lift Karsie and her parents up in prayer.


These are some of my favorite things Garrett says right now. Consequently, these are some of the things I will miss most when he starts speaking correctly.

1. boggin=bottom. I know I've mentioned that before but I just adore it.

2. beego=burrito. Ever since I can remember, we've wrapped him "like a burrito" when he gets out of the bath/shower/pool. Today, as we got ready to come home from swimming, he looked up at me with his oddly hazelishgreen eyes and said, "Like a beego, mom." He's pronounced it this way for quite awhile but I don't get tired of hearing it.

3. willd=world. His new thing to say is, whole wide world. "It's my favorite nummy in the whole wide willd." Or, "Matthew is the best baby in the whole wide willd." (By the way, he's not. He has a terrible temper. But, of course, we love him more than we love any baby in the whole wide willd.)

4. So much. He says this all the time. Sorry so much. I love you so much. Ouch so much. Hot so much.

I know he'd get teased mercilessly if he still spoke like that middle school, but I'm not gonna lie, there's a huge part of me that doesn't want it to end.


  1. Ella is ALREADY saying this stuff less and less, but:

    she 'turns' her mind when she wants a different option

    she says 'she' for every female pronoun (as in, 'my mom has an earring in she nose.')

    and she 'tum-times' goes to 'toich' (church).

    um...and I can't remember my other favourites right now.

    I wish 2 year olds would stay 2 forever.

  2. The last one for the girls was masageen for magazines. When I heard them say it right, I knew that time was gone forever.

  3. I have to admit that when it 'slipped up' and called dad dampa instead of papa I was a little sad. How about the fact that he throws "ho balls?"

  4. One of my favorite Garrett phrases is "Where Hay-er at?" - not necessarily me, just the fact that he said that instead of "Where's so and so?"
