I tweeted this yesterday:
Dadinating blog (@dadinating): New word “Weeeeeee weeeeeeee!” not sure which wee The Lad is referring to…..
I got a definitive answer today. We had watched In the Night Garden and The Lad was sitting up with us while we waited for some sign that he was ready for sleep.
He was in my lap and very wriggly. I was letting him squirm in the belief that he was burning off energy which would make him easier to settle later. He got himself into a position where he was standing in my lap, each foot planted firmly on one of my thighs.
He did a backward swan dive off me and started to plummet towards the floor. Somehow I got my left arm behind him and caught him before his head impacted with the floorboards.
“Weeeeee! Weeeeee!” Bubbled The Lad as I held him suspended 5 inches from solid timber. I was in a mild state of shock. The Wife was doubled over laughing.
I think I can say with confidence that the “Weeee” The Lad means is:
an exclamation of joy, thrill, etc
