To him they’re balls…

Ethan talks when he was 10 mths old but only walks unaided when he was 14 mths. Now at 18 mths old, our daily conversation goes like this…

Ethan: Mummy, Atan hungi. Make milk, piss. (Alright, it was suppose to be ‘please’ and yes, he calls himself Atan! And yes, he can talk THAT much!)
….Got his milk.
Ethan: Lie down, dink milk. (dink=drink)

He has a tendency of telling me what he is doing.

Ethan: Baby walk. (Telling me he is walking)
Ethan: Baby cry. (Yes, he even tells me when he is about to cry!)
Ethan: Baby jump. (A dollar for those who can guess what he is doing! :P)

He also likes to ask questions and answers them himself.

Ethan: Where, where Daddy? (With both palms up)
Ethan: There! (With finger pointing to Daddy)

Ethan: Where, where Mummy?
Ethan: There! Kitchen! (Or sometimes when he is confused, ‘kitchen’ became ‘chicken’! n vice versa)

When Daddy’s about to go to work.

Ethan: Where, where Daddy? (With both palms up)
Ethan: Werk. (I don’t think he has the idea of where Daddy’s work place is!)
Ethan: Bye bye, Dadddy.

His favourite game since he was younger is hide n seek. He’ll hide something and seek it himself!

Ethan: Where, where hands? (Hiding his hands underneath the pillows)
Ethan: Tahdah! (Showing off his hands, and I am suppose to kiss it to show how glad that we’ve found his hands back!)

Ethan: Where, where legs? (Hiding it between the sofas)
Ethan: Tahdah! (And I am suppose to kiss it?!)

Ethan: Where, where ball? (Hiding a ball under my tees)
Ethan: Tahdah! (And what am I suppose to do now? Kiss the balls?)

And recently….

Ethan: Where, where ball? (Me wondering, coz he has not hidden any balls!)
Ethan: Tahdah! (Tapping my chest!)
Ethan: Balllllllllll!
Me: (Almost fainted!)

Aiks! Maybe because I stopped BF him since he was 3-4 mths, he did not recognise my breasts, and now that he is an eager explorer, feeling them, he thought they are BALLS hidden underneath my tees!!!!

So… help me please!!!
