At our Picotin trip last week, Sophia learnt to say “rabbit” in her extremely cute cut-me-some-slack-I-just-learnt-this-word way and my friend J reminded me to keep a record of the cute way she speaks before this stage passes so, here goes:
Ohn – small rectangular electronic devices that plays nursery rhymes to me and tells me stories, and which the adults put to their ear from time to time.
Bag – big black thing that mummy brings to work everyday and that contains said “ohn”.
Totou – green soft toy with a shell on its back that I stole from Samuel gor gor’s mummy’s car when nobody was looking.
Bear bear – one of numerous soft toys that I own, some brown, some white, some grey and one pink by the name of Teddy.
Gork – usually small but sometimes larger than me animal that goes “ruff ruff” and has a waggy tail.
Bi – adjective exclusively reserved for cats and accompanied by exagerrated hand actions (wonder whether it has anything to do with jaguar, leopard and tigers that we saw at the zoo).
Bog – all forms of rectangular hollow objects and the metal holes that grandpa gets the mail from.
Tar – sparkly things in the sky.
And of course:
Eeeeh… bid – furry animal with long ears.
