Tomoe’s been developing her speaking skills at a very fast pace. She says more everyday it seems. This was a recent conversation I had with her.
Me: Are you hungry?
Tomoe: Un (yes) *nod*
Tomoe: Es *nod*
Me: Do you want banana?
Tomoe: Un. *nod* Banana.
Later on, after she was finished her banana…
Me: Do you want yoghurt?
As you can see, it wasn’t a complex conversation, but it was two-way communication. She’s been doing that quite a bit lately. Other things she’s been saying:
- Dame (no in Japanese)
That’s right, she’s saying no. Other questions and commands she’s understanding:
- Can you put this in the garbage?
- Can you put it back?
- Do you need your diaper changed?
- Can I have it?
- It’s bedtime (and then she says “nigh-nigh” and waves)
Can more complex conversations be coming soon?
