"Duck Eckk-Eckk"

A couple of nights ago, she showed me an old rubber duckie and said "Duck Eckk-Eckk". I was smiling ear to ear since this is the first time she put two words together by herself ! (instead of repeating what we say)

"Eckk-Eckk" is actually her version of the word "dirty". Noticed recently that whenever she falls down, she'll turn her palm upwards and say "eckk-eckk" which is the cue for us to wipe her palms. Not too sure on the origin of this term but my guess is that we sometimes say "yuck yuck" for dirty things.

Picture of the dirty duck. (with clean duck to show contrast) -

Hmmm..... maybe this is the indication that she'll say the magic word "MUMMY" soon !!!! *keeping fingers crossed*
