Anush is 2yrs and 5 months now. Some of her converstaion masterpieces:
We are "sildren" and we "finis" things
"Want to sit on my lap" " Want to eat yourself' .....( my and your are clearly interchangeable)
" O-kay , don't shout!" ( she excalims this in exasperation even if she is the one shouting)
" I am very busy"- every other day and if you ask her with what " shelling peas" or "peeling aloo"
"I am very tired- let me sleep" -we know who she is imitating- her father, who else?
If you warn against something she says " Dangerous- like fire!! "
She does some mischief and comes running and hides her face and says" Amma, I am feelign shy "
Any map is " Africa"
Directions are given unsolicited to the driver " left" and " right"- almost always correct as well
And she finally seems to be recognising colours by drawing comparison- jeans blue, chocoltae brown and so on
