In Ash's history books

I better write this down before I forget - today Ash said her first word! Yay!!

I bet that even if I'd give away 50 bucks to the first person who can guess what her first word was, I'd still have my 50..LOL...Am I the only one laughing at my jokes? Oh well, nevermind. You'd never guess what it was in the first place *snigger*.



It all happened this afternoon when she looked drowsy and I was having my lunch. She looked as if she was gonna fall off her high chair so I quickly carried her upstairs. The whole time as I was walking up the stairs, I was telling her "Ashley, doo doo ok" "Be good girl and doo doo". As I was about to put her down in her cot, I told her one more time "Now Ashley doo doo, ok". Then, she repeated after me "doo doo" in the cutest little voice ever. Crisp and clear. I was stunned. So I asked her to repeat it again "Ashley, say doo doo". "Doo doo..." in that cute little voice again. I clapped my hands and screamed...YAY!!!..So, mmmmaaaaaaaayyyyybbbbbeeee, I didn't exactly scream but I did feel like it.

You're probably wondering what the heck is "Doo doo"? LOL...Told ya you wouldn't have guessed it. Its a word invented by my mom (I am only guessing that its my mom who came up with the word cos I've always known it but never really asked where it originated from) which means "sleep". Even my 90 year old grandma uses it. Now, even my hubby uses it whenever he tells Ash to go sleep. Think she's been hearing it way too often since we're always telling her "Ash, go to sleep" "Ash, faster doo doo" "Ash, quickly doo doo" "Ash, daddy and mommy doo doo, everybody doo doo" "Ash..."


Update : Hey peeps, the bed Ashley's sitting on isn't our bed..LOL..Though I too wish that it was. The picture was taken during our CNY trip to Sepang Gold Coast. I didn't put the pictures up earlier cos my Dig camera went bonkers. Now, we managed to retrieve those pics. Maybe will post them up later. A nice place indeed but well...in another post :-)

Never heard that word before. From which dialect did that word come from? Hey, Shireen, I love your bed.

I'd doo doo in that bed anytime. Hahahah. What an exciting moment. A sign of many more words to come. BTW, with my kids it is "oi oi". And now that I'm trying to teach my kids a little hokkien, it is "khun!"

Shireen Loh said...

Hi Lian, thanks for dropping by!! Gosh, you wouldn't believe it, if there were no other people around the bed, I'd be "doo doo-ing" in no time too!! LOL...Maybe I should post an update as to the "bed"...heheh :-)
