This week is all about language. Your first words that sound more and more ‘real’ and less like baby babble (which I find very adorable by the way).
Everyday we listen to you commenting on the food and demanding Unidentified Forbidden Objects. You get frustrated when we don’t understand what you want – sorry wee man. Sometimes we get it wrong.
You are growing up surrounded by two cultures and languages and I joke that you will be phonetically confused for a while. On one end of the spectrum – the pesky English sounds of th and ph. On the other end – Polish surging sz, cz and szcz as in szczcescie (luck in Polish).
I may be biased but your little voice is the cutest I have ever heard (even when you throw a tantrum – see below).
zis, yis, ahmam
your first words
busy swallows in your mouth
torrential tears, furrowed face
furious frog on the floor
my No – your sprawl
my keys, my phone, my time
my toast, my drink, my love
Dat is for what’s yours is mine
