He talks all day long and can say pretty much anything. Like for example,"perch". He can say perch. And anemone. He can say horse and carriage and ferrari and he can say Salvador Ferragamo. He can also say "I feel like a dinner roll" and "stop! or my mom will shoot!"
Except he does it in his own language.
"Archer! How was your day?"
"Goo dit. Di gah la pooduplaaaaaah gigi! Alalalawalawalawalala HOOOOOT!"
"Yes! Dit! Dit you have fun?"
"Fantastic! Shall we read a book?"
"Plth. Jow. Jow in lapalapa."
"Good boy with your words, Arch! My Lapalapa is right! Come sit down in my lapalapa and we will jow pth!"
"Garlo Ifkis bahbahbahlooooooo. Cous cous."
"YES! Good Boy! That's right! We're going to read Ten Little Dinasoars! Can you say dinosaur?"
And I seriously am excited. This crazy language makes me so proud. Even if he's nowhere near saying Cat and Dog, I SWEAR he can say ambulance when he feels like it. It sounds like "Haaaselpblthhhhh" but whatever, close enough.
Something like eight months ago I blogged about Archer's first word: Dragon. I'm beginning to think it was a fluke. He has yet to say anything since then beside the occasional mama, dada, and "NO!" Hmmmm. Maybe I should cross that one off the babybook first word list. He was six months old, after all. And now he's sixteen months.
Still no walks by the way. Yeah. We're still knee-ing.
"Hey Arch. Wanna knee race?"
"Golinrarar. Dit Doot Dit Loop."
"Yes! Good! We're going to go to the park! Can you say sandbox?"
"Come on, dude! SAAAAANDBOX"
Who needs walking when you have words like "pololololololalalalalalblth and dit-dit-paloolalalacka-woo."
Yes, indeed. Pure jow lapalapa.
