evita mary

Now..... I need to state here that I am firmly and utterly in love with Tawhai..... he'll always be my number one man! :)

However.... I may be a little besotted with Evita.

She's now speaking French. They have a good friend who spent 6 months over in France and speaks French very well who talks to Evita in French. She's just a super sponge right now, soaking up everything she hears. Anything you say to her, she repeats..... it's amazing to be around.

So.... she and I have mini conversations in French now. She even has this super cute accent. For a one and a half year old I'm floored, but also in the throws of getting together cd's of french and want to do some Maori too. Got to make the most of this sponge!

Yours, the nutty aunt.

Awwww!!! That's just so super-sweet!

Some kids came into my workplace today with their mom. They had "American" accents, but the mom couldn't speak English. The kids were bilingual, Spanish and English. It was cool to hear them us a Spanish accent when speaking Spanish and American accent when speaking English.


Have a super weekend!

hahaha.... I have a cousin who is married to a Japanese guy. They have three kids who she speaks to in Japanese, and he speaks to in English - their accents are in reverse - English is with a Japanese accent, and Japanese with a NZ accent. It's sooooo cute! :)

*HUGS* to you too Jay.

She is a cutey and you are so right, the little ones are sponges, soaking up whatever language that is spoken to them. ec
