"Check nemos", as in "Mummy check nemos (emails) on ‘puter (computer)?"
Thank you much.
Inadvertently calling us Theo. As in, "got more food Theo." (After months of this I finally worked out he’s saying for you).
Using v instead of very…v hot that one. Is v cold now.
When he doesn’t like some food he’s just tried, he makes a face and says, “That’s v spicy that one”, even if it was just a slice of granary.
Saying need instead of want. Need cuggles bit. Or even, Need cuggles want.
Sometimes, he also combines them: nee-want cuggles, nee-want food, nee-want crisps.
Strawb = straw (Nee-want milk with strawb)
Oon = balloon (so green balloon is green ‘oon)
And the colour blue is boo, as in "red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and boooo. I can sing rainbow, sing rainbow, sing rainbow tooooo."
"Negotiating" with Mummy over food, ie, saying no to food offered, then yes, then no.
Me: Jake, if you say no again, I'm going to put this away.
J: I say no and yes and no and yes. I say yes now.
Plus, yesterday, he tried conversing with a tree...
J: Hello tree, how are you? (Pause) Doesn't talk tree. Mummy, doesn't talk tree.
Me: No darling, it doesn't.
J: Mummy talk though.
And before he goes to bed every night, he kisses the cat goodnight. Sometimes, they have daytime naps together and get v comfy indeed...
