The cow says “Moof”

Our youngest is about 15 months old.  She is a wicked smart little girl, if I do say so myself.  Right now she loves doggies, probably because she can say “woof”.  See? I told you-a genius.

With the success of ‘woof’ I decided that she was ready for more animal sounds. Cow, sheep, kitty, horsy, piggy-you name it- I was going to throw them at her and she was going to nail it!! I mean, c’mon-this was the baby (the only one of our 3) who really took to baby sign language. This girl can sign ‘all done’ and ‘more’ and-wait for it- ‘thank you’ like nobody’s business. We were going to OWN animal sounds.

This is how it goes:

Me: What does the doggy say?

Baby: Woof! Woof!

 *We high-5*

Me: What does the cow say?

Baby: Woof! (looking pleased) Woof!

Me: No, sweetie, the cow says ‘Moooo!’

Baby: (looking concerned) Woof.

Me: Cow MOOO

Baby: Woof. (dead pan face)

Me: No-cow goes MOOOOOOO (because saying it longer will help….right)

Baby: (super serious) Woof.

Me: Moooooooooooo.

Baby: Long pause. Smile. ‘Moof’. Signs “All done” and walks away, which, to me, is the baby equivalent of dropping the mic and giving a ‘Peace out’ sign off.

The cow says “Moof”.
