3V0791.01 Peggy’s now is when? (3/23/80)

Peggy pointed a phonics dictionary and said, “Mimi’s.” I replied that
yes, I thought it was. Peggy continued, “Mimi’s, // is Peggy’s now.”


3V0791.02 Book all words (3/21/80)

Sometimes Peggy tries to claim one of my books that I am reading as
hers. Then I tell her, no, it’s my book, and look, there are lots of words
but no pictures. Today, Peggy picked up an adult book, leafed through
it, and remarked, “Book all words.”


3V0791.03 Amplification, apparently temporal (3/23/80)

“Me want it. Me want it now.”


3V0792.01 Context appropriate verbal accompaniment: remembered rhyme

Sitting with Peggy on my lap, I became aware that she was babbling to
herself. As I listened, I realized she was reciting an appropriate jingle…
something like “Go horsie… go town… take-a Peggy…all fall in.”


3V0794.01 Birdies (3/26/80)

“Birdie… Saw birdie… in a tree.”
confer 3/30/80 [birdie fall out of tree]


3V0795.01 Non-standard sentence [me out go side] (3/27/80

As I was going back and forth hauling wood inside —
Peggy said “Me out go side.”


3V0795.02 Standard sentence [I want baby diapers (paper ones)] (3/27/80)

no further text.


3V0797.01 Expression of temporal order (3/29/80)

At breakfast (possibly lunch) Peggy posed a specific but unsuccessful
demand, “want juice for cup.” (this cup has a frog sitting on the
bottom; it is revealed when the cup is half emptied.) I brought her the
cup, but it contained milk requested earlier, “Drink the milk, Peggy.”
She responded, “Want juice first, Daddy.”


3V0797.02 The Scottie in Madeline: [that scurry. that name scurry.] (3/29/80)

Reading again Peggy’s early favorite, we came to a page where a figure
in the background walks a black Scotty. Peggy asked, “Who’s that who, Daddy?”

Confused, I asked, “Who’s what?” She pointed, “That Scurry.
That name Scurry.”
