A few of my favourite things

These are a few of my favourite things that Violet says and does at 20 months.
-"farffle/fuffle" ('careful', said whenever she's doing something potentially unsafe like standing on a dining chair or climbing off the side of the sofa)
-"may may" ('carry me')
-"shUUHH FYYYYY" (shoo fly, followed by the cutest hand shooing action you could imagine)
-"toe unney" (toast with honey on it, please)
-"Fwroo" (fruit, except bananas which are nahNAHs)
-"dooooo de do do do" (this is really a thing that happens. it's part of a game where she's minding her own business then BAM I throw water at her but now she goes around the house singing this.)
-"At. Air" (she loves hair, to stroke it, to touch it and say "pitty"- pretty, to put hats made of containers, belts, cutlery, other non-hat items on it. whenever she does this she doesn't fail to point out that you're wearing a hat on your hair.)
-"NO-OO" (I can't explain how she says no other than that it sounds like a moody teenager who has been asked to do something unpleasant. It's got attitude.)
-"Tar. Daddy. Tar? Daddy?" (100 million times a day, just letting me know she thinks we should get in the car and go pick up Daddy at work.)
-"pren, prem, tren" (very hard to distinguish between the three but they mean 'plane', 'pram' and 'train'. the way she says them is so odd it's hilarious.)
-this is not actually a favourite, more like a least favourite but she has been experimenting with screaming and screeching for fun, to hear her voice and to get reactions.
-helping with watering the plants and doing it all by herself even when her arm is shaking because the can is too heavy.
-today she tried to feed my belly button from her drink bottle and kept saying "BABY!" as she was doing it.
-taking her nappy off and running around waving it shouting "DA BUM! DA BUM!"
