Beertje's words III

Beertje's vocabulary has exploded over the last weeks. This is a very incomplete list.  It seems that he can repeat any 2-3 syllable word from our conversations and he remembers a great deal of them to use again.

Since our October vacation, he also started consistently to combine them into 2-word sentences. 
  • Weg                      : Gone/ Hidden
  • Owa                      :  Elephant
  • Aahbei                  :  Strawberry

  • Lee(g)                      : empty (usually his cup of drinks, to ask for a refill)

A lot of these are combined now, as stated above. So when we wake up and he's hungry for breakfast he'll state "banaan eet, jaaaa banaan"  . On the road we'll get the constant explanation of what we see on the road "oooh bus, nog bus, daaaag bus,, nog auto, nog auto, auto weg." When I put my jacket on he comes "meee, auto mama meeee". 

Here you can compare Kabouter's list at exactly the same age
This is part I and part II of Beertje's words.
