A couple days ago Zoe started saying "purple." It was the most precious thing I'd ever heard or seen. Her little lips pucker up and what comes out tends to sound more like "burple." So far she always uses the word to correctly identify the color--unlike "yellow", which tends to be her description of everything whether yellow or not. She is also saying "Laylow" which means Elmo and "lilow" which means pillow. Both of these words tend to sound an awful lot like "yellow," but a mom knows the difference between these things when her child speaks.
Zoe has also recently grasped how to say "monkey" correctly, and she is very much excited about this. Mommy and Daddy are equally excited over her recent proclamation of "precia" (which means precious). Of course, she has often heard this word in terms of endearment towards herself as we have showered her with it since the day she was born.
For those of you interested in her vocabulary development in general, here is a list of Zoe's other oft used words and phrases:
boo (which means moo)
gurt (yogurt; this used to be "noggin", which we never could figure out)
Papa (grandpa or grandma)
it's a duck
it's a neow
grr (what does a bear say?)
daaa (what does a sheep say?)
more noonles/more burger/more pork
