i have a confession to make... there was a time (not so long ago.. not even more than a month ago) in my motherhood life, that i was a bit afraid of many things... one of which is about my son's speech... i was afraid he's not going to be able to talk! OMG. i would silently say... what if rujim can't speak? huhuh.. well blame it on his verY- witty-charming-so-talkative-extremely-smart cousin Abe! i couldn't help but compare the former to the latter... you see, my nephew (Annabelle's son he is btw) can already speak in clear and straight sentences even before he turned two.
but thank God. i worry no more! these past few days, at 1 year and 10 months, my son speaks a little more.. not clearly.. but he speaks! HAHAHA!
here's a humble list of his vocabulary:
mommy - meeee/maaa
daddy - dedi (but seldom says so)
jollibee - ebi
saka - kaka
go down - dam dam
buka - ka
human na/ finish na - nana!
amen - hamen (clasps both hands)
water - trrr!
sun - tan
moon - mmmm/ moo
hello? - aaaa?
pig - pee
and just an hour ago while we were watching DORA, when he saw a butterfly -- he suddenly shouted facing me: AYTIBA! Hheheh i guess he was trying with all his might to let out the right sound.. wasn't it an excellent try? :)
... and he often loves to talk to himself as if he's talking to someone.. and guess what's his intonation??? ILONGGO! hahaha
i love you my Baby Kuya. you make me so happy every single day :)
