My darling boy has been trying to communicate with us in baby English of late and it’s awfully cute!
This morning he took out his tricycle band then wanted to park it back under the table, “ummi, park”
I love this! We wanted to go to the market to buy fish so usually I’d go, ” to market, to market to buy some fish” on the way down I asked him where we were going and he said, “chop” to buy what? ” balloon” I said no we are going to the market to buy…”ish”.
Adorable or what? How ayah bathe you? “Shoap” I.e. soap.
And due to his love for pens, he has mastered its name perfectly.
He has a car pillow case so when he wakes up, he will turn around and say cars cars. This morning, a pillow, he calls ‘pullow’ fell and he said “drop”
It warms my heart, Alhamdulilah, that he loves his books. He will ask and point towards where we keep his library books and say ‘books’ with the emphasis on the k.
I was taken by surprise when I asked him one day who my second brother was, expecting ‘cle’ for uncle. He said ‘achat’. This morning I left him in the room to throw his diaper away and came back to find him missing only to appear from the kitchen area near the toilet and what was he doing there, “achat” he said.
There are more like marble, ball, atok, Emma, mama, anne, baby, aunty (anty), nyayi, box, paper, water (ter), shark (chak), turtle( tartle), flower( fower), butterfly(papa), bus, plane, helicopter (copter), cheese, egg, milk, more, some etc.
After some time, I had time yesterday to show his some cards and it was so fun because he was so attentive and even asked for more. I just wished I had more time…InsyAllah.
