Jaan has kept everyone laughing lately with his talent for mixing up syllables in words. He's finally getting to where he can saw луна (moon) instead of на-лу. He has quite a list of other words that he says all mixed up, though:
Лопата (shovel) is по-та-та.
Велосипед (bicycle) is со-по-лед.
Работа (work) is ба-то-та.
Капуста (cabbage) is па-ту-та.
This next one isn't backwards, but it is cute. We've really been working on having him play gently with Raia. Will always tells Jaan to "be sweet." Last night I bumped Jaan's arm really hard while I was scooting him up to the table. Before I could even apologize, he firmly said, "Mama, no-no! Be fweet."
