Quite vocal about his likes and dislikes

Anirudh has always been quite vocal about his likes and dislikes ever since I can remember. When he hadn't learned to speak, he would make sounds or shrieks to let us know. And once he had gathered enough vocabulary, he uses it to let us know.

What I really like is he would say so outrightly if he appreciated something. And that gives such a ego boost to the self when he says something nice about what you have cooked or about your dress...just anything.

If he likes the dress which he is wearing or anybody else is wearing he will promptly say "Yeh to bahut achha lag raha hai!" And if he doesn't he wil lsay "Yeh mujhe pasand nahi lagta". In fact on his brithday I wore a crepe top with Katha work on it and the moment I wore it he asked me to change it as he didn't like it :P

And when it comes to food, his eyes will dance and nod his head and say "Mmm...achha hai!" And if he doesn't it will be a screwed up face with a tongue sticking out "Ah..yeh achha nahi hai!". There are times when he also gets diplomatic about his comments. He will still have a morsel and do the regular nodding of head and dancing eyes after a morsel but will say "Bas. Aur bhookh nahi hai!"

Day before yesterday we all had gotten ready to go for a wedding. After I emerged from the bedroom wearing a Georgette sequined sari, adorning my gold choker set and matching bangles, he looked at me and said "Wow! Mumma aap to bahut achhe lag rahe ho!"

On the way to the wedding he was talking to his Dadi-Dadu on the phone. And they were talking about his school and later the conversation moved to the wedding. So they asked him what he was wearing, what mumma was wearing and what papa was wearing. He told about his Kurta pyajama. Then told about my saree and when prodded on the color, he told it correctly as 'purple'. And when it was time to tell about what Papa was wearing he got into being a tease mood. He said t-shirt and pyajama. and started to giggle. Thats how he is these days. He knows when he can be a tease and have fun.

Then his Dadi asked him who's is looking good so like a sweet little child he says "Betu, Mumma aur papa!" . So she prodded him further "Sab achhe lag rahe hain?" and he replied saying "Haan!". So she prodded again saying "Par sabse achha kaun lag raha hai?". And to answer that he didn't even need to think for a second. He immediately said "Main!"

Even with my very sketchy Hindi, I caught enough of that to see that your little man is quite forthright! He is only a month younger than my second child, who is somewhat speech delayed. He would be more vocal about things, I am sure, if he knew the words for it! Sigh.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Feel free to drop by any time!
