Harper-isms (And A Couple Henry-isms, Too)

Toooop! - "stop", almost always accompanied by a swipe at one's face

Blap - lap (this is kind of my favorite thing she says)

Meow meow - cat

Queek - mouse

Ah-ah - monkey

La La - One of her favorite books, "Moo, Baa, La La La!" by Sandra Boynton

Munner - Another one of her favorite books, "Are You My Mother?" by P. D. Eastman

Gegos - Legos

Cree-cream, cay-cake, da-dog, pah-pad - ice cream, pancake, hot dog, iPad

Duce - juice
