Sometimes we correct Jayce’s pronunciation or grammar, but some words we just leave alone, because we know that pretty soon he’ll figure it out for himself and they’ll be gone.
Jayce usually calls bananas “bean-as.” This morning he called a banana a “ban-a,” and I was sad.
So, in light of the constantly evolving language of a 2 year old, I thought I’d record a few of our favorites here before they’re gone, and we forget how much they made us smile.
Marker-wave, instead of Microwave.
Pep-peans, instead of Pepperonis.
He subsitutes ‘a’ in sentences for the parts of the sentence that he doesn’t quite get yet.
“A doin, Dad?” for “What are you doing, Dad?”
“Ay go.” for “Here you go.” He says this one a lot.
He also says, “I sure do” a lot. He usually uses it correctly, which cracks me up, but yesterday I said, “Okay, let’s go outside for a bit.” and he said “I sure do.” This cracked me up too.
It figures that when I was thinking about this post I had a dozen things to record, but now that I’m typing I can only remember a few. Maybe I’ll add to it later.
