J speaks/hums some more

Wruff Wruff = blackboard duster

Just do it - me being told to, well, just do it. The jigsaw in this case

Aai -------- - J parroting anything and everything I say, with 'Aai' (mum) prefixed to it.
eg. Aai cheeky chops - his retort when I say he is cheeky chops.
      Aai tidy up time - when I tell him that it is tidy up time. And so on.

J madak (madat) karto - J offering to help me with my household chores

I had an inkling the child is musically inclined. But neither M nor I were prepared for what happened this evening. The three of us were sat doing our own thing. M was working on the laptop, I was reading a book, J was doodling on his magic slate. The opening bars to 'Out of Africa' started playing on Classic FM. And J started humming the tune! He went on for a few bars before stopping.
He has heard this piece often enough as a baby, when nothing but this tune, Gabriel's Oboe and a few other favourite pieces would soothe a bout of colicky crying. But it has been a while, perhaps more than a year since he last heard this particular piece of music. How? is what I would like to know.

J school, waa waa nahi - J letting me know that he will go to school and not cry when he is there. Rather when I am not there with him.

Let's do wee wee - The one thing J learnt after day 1 at pre-school

Mahinna, Mahinna, Mahinna - J running down the aisles of the local supermarket, calling out to M (Baba or Daddy)

Vaidehi, be careful!! Left, left, left - J doing some back-seat driving

Wheee, whooosh - when driving down the ramp of a multi-storey car park

Oh, dear! What's happened? - used rather appropriately when there are some 'Oh, dear!' moments

Where's it gone? Where's it gone? - again, rather appropriately, when he can't find what he is looking for



Wot So Funee?

  10. Do you think boys/men are predisposed to be back seat drivers?!! They all seem to do it, they can't help themselves :-)

  16. Aw, how cute! I love the talking phase. It's so exciting to watch them pick up language and learn how to use it :)

    I was in the car with my smallest the other day, who is 13 months old. My DP realised he had forgotten something, and ran back to the house to get it. The baby turned to me, frowned and said, "Ow bout Daddy?" It's such a great stage.
