Can I get some help from another Navajo-learner?

I am making flashcards for all my Navajo words and I forgot to write down the English translation on two of them. They are Shizhe'é and Biih yildee'i. (Sorry I can't figure out how to type the accents.) Can someone give me these meanings so I can put them on my cards? Thanks!

Shizhé’é= my father; my uncle (father's brother).
Shizhé’é bidibé hólǫ́ (My dad has sheep).
Biih yildee'i= cherry.
Shash biih yildee’í yiyą́ (Bears eat cherries).


hólǫ́ Means “has”! Not “my father has sheep”.


To type accents do this:

Computer- option>accented letter

Mobile (apple)- Hold down on a letter, until the accent comes up.
