I can only guess from what he tells me. But one thing is for sure – most of it is incredibly cute and I really want to freeze the time.
(inspired by Pooja’s similar post)
- We live in metric/decimal …sometime binary world. Ridu lives in a tertiary or a three part world – none, one and more. Like no banana, one banana and more banana. It’s interesting to see how most of the times that is enough for communication.
- If you give him water or juice after anything savory then immediately he says “tikhat gone”.
- Recently he started saying “I finished” after he’s done with a meal. It’s very liberating for us to not have the guess-work during mealtimes anymore….
- “nighttime” ==> “sleepy”. Mornings ==> “nightime gone”
- For some reason any baby crying, even in a distance perturbs him.
- Either someone is “gussa” or they are “happy”
- He tells us now if the food is “yummy” or “nice”. Pancakes, eggs are typically always yummy 🙂
- He tells his new daycare friends to say “please” at the table on the third day.
- He asks his new teacher, who’s rubbing her eyes “eye buggers?”
He’s incredibly chatty – for some reason I never realized kids can speak so well so early. He’s making full grammatical sentences in 100% American accent.
Here’s a photo from Navya’s birthday party where he got Elmo as his return gift…
