"Tay", You Want?

Baby talks are really fun to do and learn. I’m not used to it since I wasn’t home for a couple of months but Baby Abong taught me how to.

One chilly morning, the day after I arrived home to celebrate for the Holy Week, at around 5:30 after some rounds jogging and and do stretching exercises at the town park, I brought pieces of Puto which I also love to pair with hot coffee. Just in time I went back home, Baby Abong woke up already, ran after me and shouting ‘Tay Mommy Gagay‘ repeatedly. I didn’t mind him at first coz I was clueless of what he was shouting for. I just thought he was chasing at me. But mom, who was sipping her cup of coffee also, while laughing at me said that Baby Abong was actually asking for Puto.

That was really a LOL for me. I didn’t know Puto was a Tay for him. Nyahahaha!

Baby Abong, according to my mom, calls puto and bread ‘tay’ for reasons she do not know. Some other baby talks I learned were as follows:

  • Gagang = Lugaw
  • Tatis = Pansit
  • Ah Eh = Pooping/Defacating

What about you? Can you share some baby talks too? And oh, this, by the way, is my entry for Blog Photo Challenge.

    That is so cute! Tawag nya TAY dahil baka siguro sa TINAPAY? hahaha…. Babies are awesome and they can sure surprise and amaze us. When my first one started to talk he would say WAWA for water, or AWE for hurt and some other words that are just way to cute. Visiting via BPC.
