I’ve been hearing this word a lot lately and it’s only been over the last few days that I’ve figured out what it meant. Any guesses? I’ll give you a few hints…

I hear it after I…
offer to help her put on her tutu
offer to help her down the stairs
offer to get her ____________ (pretty much anything)
offer to cut slices of apple
open her car door…

Got it yet? I’ll give you one more…

Today she was walking along the top of the backyard planter and I said “Do you want to hold Mommy’s hand?” She said “Deshie” and held her own hand (opera style) as she walked along.

Somewhere between this week and last, she’s started referring to herself as Jessie (“Deshie”) and she’s started doing it ALOT. It’s interesting because I don’t call her Jessie very often, but that’s the name she uses. Perhaps she’s trying to tell me that she would prefer it over the nicknames I usually use for her…Baby One, Bunny Girl, & J. I guess it could also be the easiest way for her to say her full name and she’s been hearing that quite a bit lately with all of her antics (trying to put her pee-pee diaper in the toilet or trying to plug an earphone cord into a usb outlet). At any rate, it’s fun to hear her refer to herself in third person. She used to say “mine” all the time in reference to things that were physically hers and mostly in reference to something she wanted to do for herself. Now, we just hear “Deshie.”

  1. Oh that is so cute! I'm glad you figured it out…it's so frustrating when you can't! That is so cute though, sweet Jesser…maybe we all need to start calling her Jessie.

  2. What a sweetheart she is!!! She is letting you know she is becoming very independent. Love the picture of her!! Love you all!

  3. As I showed this post to Grandpa we noticed how she curls her toes up just like her Great Grandpa. šŸ™‚

  4. So cute! I thought she was saying “thank you”. I am glad you figured it out. It will always be something you remember her saying, kind of like, “Go Tooters,” or “take your tall.”

  5. I've been checking these but have felt too sick to comment or type or do anything in general. I love this, I can just picture her sweet voice saying it.

  6. I can't believe she's saying her own name! That cute little Deshie, we need to call her.

  7. Maybe you could just post a new picture once a week? I just love seeing that cute girl's smiling face.
