What is my DD saying?

There you go is quite common. DD said "alello" for ages and I didn't have a clue until a wise MNetter translated it as "there you go". Didn't realise until that was pointed out how often I said "there you go" when I handed her something.

I think it's a combination of words. She has been using it more today and I think it's 'go mouth' and 'go mom'. She had something in her mouth and so we said 'take it out of your mouth' she did and then proceeded to put something else in her mouth and said 'gome-a', which is where the 'go mouth' comes from. I don't think it's 'all gone' we don't really use that phrase. Oh well, it may forever be a mystery, I'll have to keep querying her and she may begin to make it clearer. I will watch her more closely when she wakes up from her afternoon nap, I'm determined to figure it out.

I thought "gone" but now agree sounds like "there you go"

Yeah I reckon 'gone'. Could putting something in your mouth be related to 'all gone'? My DD used to wander around saying 'gone' when she couldn't find something.

Gone or there you go. This is how mu ds peonounces gone. Took me bloody ages to work it out!

CatAmongThePigeons Tue 27-Aug-13 09:14:57

Gone or got it?

heidihole Tue 27-Aug-13 09:11:32

I think it's 'there you go' or 'there you go mama'

'Come on'?

My DS said 'mim' for ages. I never did find out what it was.

MrsBucketxx Tue 27-Aug-13 09:09:31

Sound like give me.

Ds said bagon like bacon gor ages turned oug it was dragon.

Its like a whole new language to learn.

LizzyDay Tue 27-Aug-13 09:04:36

Give / give me?

Could it be her version of "there you go" is sounds like she says it when she wants or receives something.

Some examples are:

DD: "book"
Me: "Go and get a book and I'll read it"
DD: "Book. Gome-a"

DD: shoving something into my mouth "Gome-a" I thought she was saying, go mouth.

DD: pointing at my computer "Go-mama." She wanted something next to my computer.

Now she is just walking around saying it. I think she might be trying to get my attention and she is actually saying Go Mama. I don't know. Maybe it's just a word she likes the sound of so she keeps repeating it?

She is 13 months so she can't draw it, she isn't signing anything while she is saying it. I don't think it's Grandma, she can say Grandma quite clearly, but I did think it might be Grandma.

She watches Handy Manny, In the Night Garden and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

Go home?

Gone?

AFishWithoutABicycle Tue 27-Aug-13 08:38:39

Come?

Grandma? Mind you, could be something completely different. My ds1's name for his grandad was "Is". We never did work out why.

My 16 month old dd was saying "kappa-gove" for ages, which she sometimes abbreviated to "gove". Eventually it clarified into "there you go" (mostly used when giving us something, but, like all her words and phrases, sometimes just said randomly for fun!). Could it be this?

nilbyname Tue 27-Aug-13 08:27:38

What she pointing to, looking at when she says it? What's the context??

kelda Tue 27-Aug-13 08:23:19

How old is she? What does she watch on TV?

Can she point to it, or draw it, or sign it?

itsonlysubterfuge Tue 27-Aug-13 08:22:19

I have been trying for days to figure out what my DD's new word is. I thought maybe some of you may have an idea. All the other words she uses are quite clear to me, but this one I'm struggling with. The word she is using is Gome, or Gome-a, rhyming with home. It's driving me nuts. I will probably never be the wiser, being a parent is so difficult wink.
