If my stories about my girls bore my readers, here's yet another post to skip.
Catherine's starting to work on three-syllable words. "Banama" is one of her favorites.
She's just a beginner at speaking these difficult words, though, and I think it's hard for her to pick out fine differences in pronounciation.
So I was cueing her today with some food items on her tray, pointing to each, and exaggerating the sounds: "BanANa. ToMAYto."
With great authority, she proceeded to name each object, as if to correct my mistakes. Pointing to the banana: "Banama." Pointing to the piece of tomato: "Banama."
