dishes... and lions
Jerry said his first word - kinda. Almost. Eriko says it doesn’t count if he doesn’t know what he’s saying. In addition, it probably doesn’t count if it one can only recognize it as a word because they heard what I said first. Even then, “da” “su” sounds a lot like “dishes” if “dishes” is what you want to hear. =)
We have this picture book of zoo animals that Jerry likes. With each animal, I like to make a sound. For example, a cow goes “moo” (actually, cows aren’t in the book, but you get the point). Lately Jerry has been mimicking my lion roar. Today Eriko informed me (and I subsequently observed several times) that if I say “lion”, Jerry will “roar”.
What a cute boy!
