My youngest doesn’t say much.
He basically utters two words – ‘Mama’ and ‘Dada’ and I’ve figured out he often uses ‘Dada’ to refer to his pacifier, not his dad. So it was noticeable when we walked down the stairs together earlier this week, and he uttered a new word.
‘Mama’, he said as he carefully took a couple of steps. ‘Yes?’ I responded.
‘E-ve’ he uttered. Clear as day.
‘Did you just say E-ve’? I asked him. (As in, the other robot from Wall-E? The movie we haven’t watched since Christmas?)
I’d hoped his ‘next’ word might be something useful….like ‘water’ or ‘milk’ or ‘bed’ …or maybe even his brother’s name.
