Easton is now almost 4. I figured I’d have a “part 2” to follow up on the original part 1 before this, but, you know. Things. They come up. So I’m a little behind schedule on this one. 🙂
- “Gwirl” (rhymes with “Squirrel”. This is how he produces the ultra simple word “Girl”. It is one of the funniest things he says. sometimes I try to correct him, and he says “no, it’s gwirl!” If you didn’t hear it all the time, you probably wouldn’t notice it. but now that I’ve pointed it out, you’ll hear it too.
- “my friend pogo-stick” – for a while, we think easton had an imaginary friend that he had named “pogo stick”. no idea where it came from.
- “my friend robin” – now he’s in a HUGE superhero kick, so now his imaginary friend is robin. So that’s a good thing, it means that he’s the lead, and he has at least one sidekick. So tonight before bed, he was looking through his books, and said “I don’t want to read this one, I just want to look at it to see if Robin wants it for his birthday”
- “This sounds like a job for [superhero]!”, where [superhero] is whichever super-hero shirt or pajamas he is putting on.
- A whole set of words where he just drops the first (few) syllables. I’m not sure if this is just the hip new thing that kids his age are doing to save typing on twitter or what:
- “-chine” for “machine”
- “-cado”, for “avocado”
- “-nected” for “connected”
Of course, there are a bunch more, but now that I started writing them down I can’t think of any!
