Abhi and Achu’s vocabulary is growing by the hour. Some times when we are talking to them, they are just trying to imitate what we said. Sometimes I don’t even hear clearly what they say, but its super funny how those words come out of their mouth. When nanny P comes in the morning, we say Good Morning to her so that Abhi and Achu will learn to say it every time. One morning, nanny P says Good Morning and Abhi says Good morning back. 🙂 He said something like Goog Mommin…something..It was super funny. 🙂 P, Nanny and I laughed so much. This morning, Achu tried to repeat saying spider…The day before she tried to say Panda..and said..something that started with P and ended with D.. I can’t laugh enough on how these words sound. When they try to say something, we focus on those words to teach them. Now a days, as soon as I go home or someones comes in, Abhi and Achu say hiiii..all by themselves. Yesterday, nanny was getting ready to leave. As soon as she wore her sweater, Achu started saying byeeee waving her hands.
It’s funny for few words, how the last letter never ends..like. instead of hi, they say hiiiiiiiiiiiiii. Bye is Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. 🙂
Nanny plays animal sounds in the morning when they are eating breakfast, so the latest theme of new words/sounds they are learning is what animal says…
Abhi & Achu: Baw baw..
Abhi & Achu: Mooo..
For some reason, sometimes cow says amma.. 🙂
Abhi & Achu: Ahhhizzzzzzzzzzzzzz.. (That means hisss…That zzz… never ends too)
Abhi & Achu: eeennn..
How does rain fall?
Achu: Tup tup..
How does YoYo goo?
Achu: tskk..tskk.. (She also makes a face expression for this…)
As soon as she sees the Fish on the flash card,
Abhi’s latest obession is donkey. The minutes he comes out of his room, he finds the animal book and points donkey from it. And yes, according to Abhi, it says….eeee..aaa..eee..aaa
As soon as we open a number farm book and sing, baby mcDonald had a farm..Abhi and Achu start..eeee..aaa..ooo. 🙂
One weekend I was in the kitchen cooking and singing Todha Sa Beat Bajao… Abhi was in the living room next to Murali. As soon as I sang those lines, Abhi starts saying…Beatu baooo..:) It was a such a lovely surprise for us. I didn’t hear him sing that first and when Murali mentioned he repeated the last two words, I didn’t believe him. Finally I requested Abhi to say it again many times and finally he started signing again for me..Beatuu baoo..beatuuu baoo… 🙂
Abhi and Achu watch TV only when they are eating. They watch some songs channel that almost always plays the same songs and Abhi, Achu like it. One of the songs has a tune somewhere in the song like..maye..maye..maye..and these days Abhi and Achu sing along with the TV or sing with us…They repeat it exactly like..maye..maye..maye.. 🙂
They knew the words Up already..So, now when we are singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star..How I wonder what you are..They join us and say “Upp aaa…” (Pointing their hands up..For up above) 🙂
Last Saturday, Abhi wakes up from his morning nap, and starts repeating his name..Abhi..Abhi..Abhi…He was like trying to experiment with how the name sounds..so he says like Abhi..Abhe..Abheyyyy…Abhi… 🙂 Next day, I taught him to say this when he is asked Whats your name? Now we ask him, “Abhi, whats your name?” and he replies, “Abhi..Abhey..Abhi..Abheyy”. Really, Abhi repeating his name like this is the cutest sound I have heard in my life. 🙂 This and they repeatedly and randomly calling everyone around amma..amma are my favourites. 🙂
