Guide to Owen-speak

muh muh muh....... adj. request for increase in supply of desired item (usually food) or continuation of desired action (usually reading books)  
                              *Not to be confused with the similar-sounding term of endearment he SHOULD be using by now to refer to the nice lady who birthed him.
die-dee................. n. pacifier
nine nine.............. n. clementine
Nuh no?...............  phrase  conveys his understanding that an object or action is forbidden while simultaneously communicating that he really feels you 
                                should reconsider and so intends to do what he wants to do anyway
uh-oh................... interj.  frequently heard about 5 seconds after the above phrase
meh-na-nen......... n. Motrin, Tylenol, teething tablets, etc.
teet-thhh.............. n. toothbrush
rye-rye................. n. stroller (ride-ride, get it?)
dowt-died............ prep. where we are when we open the "doe" and go for a walk in the "rye-rye"

In summary, Owen is a tall, skinny kid who moves fast and talks a lot.
