We are still waiting for the magical moment when Muski opens his mouth and suddenly starts to talk in complete sentences. I’m beginning to think it might not happen quite like that… I am beginning to see a slow and painful acquisition of one word at a time…
Before Christmas “dat” appeared and left us dancing around the house trying to guess which ‘dat’ he was actually referring to.
In early January “hhhhot” was heard from the small boy. Considering he is oven obsessed and has heard everyone shriek “Hot!!!!” at him a number of times I can’t say I was that surprised.
At the end of last week we got “no no no no nooooooooooooooooo”
And yesterday a new word, actually two words strung together… that is almost a sentence!
“Hi there!” he said as he picked up the phone and pretended to talk. “Hi there, hi there, hi there!” Just like the American accented voice that comes from his little toy phone when he presses number 5…”Hi there”.
I am still waiting for him to say Mamma.
