— Ace The baby-talk "code." She claims the language is reflexive. "Neh," for example, mimics the sound a baby makes when he's feeding, so "neh" means "I'm hungry."
After a nurse told her not to worry about her babys constant colicky crying, Priscilla Dunstan, now 32, decided that there must be a better answer. As a professional musician in Australia with a photographic memory for sound, she began to keep notes on her newborn sons wails, and, sure enough, detected a pattern five specific sounds that he would make when he was hungry, tired, needed to burp, was uncomfortable, or had gas.
These words are created when sound is added to a babys natural reflexes, explains Dunstan, whose research on over 1,000 babies has led her to believe that these words are universal among infants during the first three months of life. This system is about helping the mother to believe in her own intuition, she says.
Here are two words to get you started.
The word: Neh
Where it comes from: The noise made when a baby pushes his tongue to the roof of his mouth because he wants to eat, neh, is an infants sucking reflex with sound added to it.
I need to burp!
The word: Eh
Where it comes from: When a big bubble of air is caught in your babys chest, the sound you hear is eh, as your baby tries to get the burp out.
I suppose it's possible. Her explanation is plausible enough. Not that that makes it true.
But What Does "Heh" Mean? Ghengis (or as I call him, Jenjis) writes to say he thinks he knows.
"Heh" is baby-talk for "I needs me some of those puppies."
"So? You found out that my infant is more articulate than lindsay lohan, and you have a 6 figure salary a federal grant and got published?"
thus the word
"So let me get this right, you call yourself a scientist?"
Thus the word
"I agree whole heartedly with everything you say, you are the authority in all things and now lets talk about global warming"
Thus the phrase
"Chimpy Bushhitler Haliburton IRAQ! IMPEACH!"
It's all very clear.

Many bird songs are pure instinct and known from birth.

I never believed parents when they said babies have different cries for different needs before, but it's pretty apparent now.
Of course, she's starting to imitate my noises, which is no good at all. The other day, I was working on something, hit my thumb and said "shit." She looked up at me, smiled and started going "shhh...shhh"
I'm sure she'll wait until we're at church to finish saying the word.

Does Glenn know this is sort of a Helen stalking site?
Also, there is a thing called "pacing" where you could post something new every few hours.
You're gone for a day and a half and now you're posting like you're all hopped up on meth.

(Which is often all at the same time)
However, my family is not impressed.
So I'm thinking about looking up this Priscilla Dunstan chick, she sounds easily impressed.
And probably a complete moonbat, but can't be choosy.

Anyone with a dog, cat, horse, or kid knows that there are different cries employed for different unmet needs. A cry of anger sounds different from a cry of pain or despair.
The Director gave me a frosty look, but Fuck her. Some of the stuff we have to hear drives me nuts. Pacific Institute, healing touch, cultural sensitivity, ect...
Nice pic, btw.

I think that would be "[Thump] Get that would you, Deirdre..."

1.) The instapundit married a hot woman with a sexy accent. I am not trying to be crude, it's true.
2.) Warden isn't giving it 110% as a father:
"You're all fucking retards. My dad will kick your ass."
Warden, if you want a lefthanded quaterback you tie the kids right hand behind his back. If you want a fighter his jaw should either be filled with wood chips, chew them like gum, or so sore from punching he can't talk. An Iron Jaw is given by the father, earned and worth it in the long run.

Thankfully I wasn't a boxer, just a wrestler. . . .
Hrm, maybe I should stop with the homo-erotic jokes for a while?

#4 You gobbled too many of those black beauty scooby snacks, thought the baby was demon and put the kid in the oven.
#5 Your crack head rapist boyfriend spent some time alone with the kid while you went out to score a bag of dope, raped the crap out of it, then used it as an expedient sponge to texture paint the walls while you were gone.
Both of these will make a baby cry.

My big brother, who is really my father figure all the time that I grew up, and while his wife if cool, with a guy like sense of humor and fucking beautiful, I can't ever think of either of them in a sexual way, thats just how it is.
Anyways, one day I'm at my brothers place, I think it was his birthday actually (which would make this even more funny) my brother, myself and his best friend in the region are all sitting in line making sarcastic jokes about everyone else in the house.
Well, it gets kinda late, and sissy, my nickname for my brothers wife, wants to play some music so she starts blasting "right thurr" or is it "right therr" (I love the fact that I'm asking this, whats the "correct" spelling for that song title?) and shit.
Well, she would walk passed us, and my brothers friend would go "right THERRR!" and stare at my sissy's ass, and my brother would do it too.
This went on for a while even after the song changed, and then sissy goes into the kitchen to get us a snack plate so that we would keep eating as well as drinking.
As soon as she walked out of the garage and was out of earshot my brothers friend turned to him and said "(wickedpinto brothers name) I love you dude, but really, I can't wait for you to die so I can fuck your wife"
I really couldn't stop laughing all night.

That's not funny. Stabbing him first and then telling him' "I can't wait until you die so I can fuck your wife!" while unbuttoning your Levis, that's funny.
