Over the past few weeks, A has not only been using her baby sign language but has also started using verbal words a lot more. One of the things we’ve focussed on is food words, to give her the ability to voice preferences.
I took A to the grocery store this morning to pick up a few things, and when we came home, she toddled around the kitchen as I put things away. Then this conversaton happened:
A: (picks up a bunch of bananas) Mama.
Me: Bananas. Those are bananas.
A: Mana. Mana!
Me: Very good, they’re bananas. Ba-na-na.
A: (waving the bananas at me) Nana!
A: (Points at the bunch, looking at me sternly) This!
