I like that song, in the whole world, and ever [VIDEO]

When your child starts learning phrases like “in the whole world” and “forever and ever”, you can get some hilarious results when they start adding them into sentences haphazardly.

While demonstrating the songs on Jack’s fox, she described them all and then went on to tell us about the piano song:

I like that song, in the whole world, and ever

Tuh-MAY-to, Tuh-MAH-to [VIDEO]

There are a few words which Ellie can’t decide how to pronounce. She hears me say WAR-tuh, whereas she’ll hear Marti say WOD-ah; she hears Marti say YOAH-gert and then hears me call it YOH-gert. Sometimes she’ll pick her pronunciation depending on who she’s speaking to.

I’m going to yoga [VIDEO]

The other day while driving home, I caught a glimpse of Ellie in her mirror and said “Hi, gorgeous”, which she then repeated. Naturally, I couldn’t get a video while I was driving, but luckily while we were having dinner soon thereafter she was only too happy to play along. Cue adorableness.

“I love you too”

Ellie has started to be more interactive with her speech, forming shorter sentences and responding to questions contextually.

Our new favourite is without a doubt when we tell her “I love you” and we get the response “I love you too”.

Another adorable phrase which we haven’t yet been able to capture in audio is the response to when we sneeze: “Bless you Daddy!”.
