The Targo and I have never talked "baby talk" to him, except for saying mama and dada. He's come up with a lot of words on his own. Like I've said before, he calls his pacifier a "Bow" (like OW, not OH), he calls his grandpas Ti-Dah and Baca, and calls his diaper a bah-poo (we think this was a consonant issue, where he was mixing up d and b, and not able to pronounce the "er" sound).
Recently, I have become "mommy" instead of "mama," which makes me a bit sad. I'm even sadder to think about when he starts pronouncing everything correctly. Especially the following:
- Mee - Knee...
- Peeba - Pizza (he's starting to say pizza most of the time)
- And talking about himself in the third person when he gets mad. "Mama, Nathan hurt my mee!"
Why do they have to grow up so fast?
