We thought it was time that we introduce Simon to that end of summer ritual. Good old fashion fun at the fair! We let Simon have his first taste of carny food he got his first ever corn dog and a classic fair scone. he was in heaven. Of course he loved the animals the best.
I think the Animals are Myles’s favorite part too. Simon and pigs are so funny, he tries to snort like a pig only he exhales instead of inhaling. He does make a pretty realistic snorting sound but it’s just slightly off, sort of in the back of hiss throat instead of in his nasal passage. It makes me laugh every time he does it. Of course he will never do it on command. He wasn’t sure about this big hog at first. Myles lured it over by snorting at it.
They had a very nice petting zoo with all sorts of baby animals. Simon was just fine with the size of these pigs! They are cute and I hear very smart. I don’t think I would mind having one as a pet. There was a girl on my swim team in High school who had a pet pig. It was given to them as a small pot bellied piglet and they were told it was “as big as it was going to get” only that wasn’t quite true and pretty soon the pig weighed upwards of 200 lbs and was boss of the couch. So it makes me a little nervous to get one.
Right now when Simon sees animals he doesn’t call them by name instead he refers to them by their sound. For example when he sees a cow he says “I see a moo!” or if he is excited just “see a moo!!!” (he practically screams it). We live by a pasture that has cows and horses in it so almost every day we drive by and he screams ” I see a NEEE!!” or “I see a MOOO!!” (note he says *knee* not *neigh* for horses). I find this odd since one of his first words was “dog” but now he has pretty much dropped saying dog at all and just refers to them as a “wolf”. He was very confused hen we saw the wolves at the zoo and I tried to tell him the sound was “hoooowl” not “wolf”. Obviously wolves look like dogs anyway. So I don’t even have words for what he calls an elephant and a pig. If I were to write it out it would be something like “phtebbbbbb!” and “chaxxx!!!” I just wanted to write these things down before I forget them. He has recently had a language explosion and talks non stop though I probably only understand 80% of it. There is almost always animal sounds involved when he is talking though. I am sure that all to soon he will be talking in full sentences and I would even be able to remember the baby talk. I think that we will forever call avocados “cado cado” and motorcycles “momos” as these are some of the cutest things he says.
So it you turn, what cute words or abbreviations does your little one say (or said). And if you don’t have a little one ask your parents what things you said : )
leave me a comment!
until next time
