Lydia has suddenly started learning to talk and seems to be picking up a few words every day. Many of them only make sense in context, but she's getting there.

For a long time, she's had one word for pretty much everything "jooosh". This has meant the following on various occasions:

  • Juice (and any drink: water, milk etc)
  • Lake/Rain/River (from juice)
  • Shoes
  • Kiss
  • Teeth (particularly in reference to brushing them)
  • Food (sounds a bit more like "cheese")
  • Jacket

Recent expansions
Cat: meaning cat, dog, bird, all other animals and cuddly toys
Bah: bath and bed
Dat: everything else, usually accompanied by pointing and a sound similar to "want"
