David's vocabulary is increasing exponentially and I started to keep a list but have gotten tired of writing it all down! Of course some of the word use he initiates himself, and other words are ones he repeats after us or when prompted. It's exciting when he uses a word we didn't know he knew.
In general David's spoken vocabulary is heavier on the English, but I would say that he comprehends both languages equally well.
Sometimes he shows evidence of being able to differentiate. For example, I will ask where "Daddy" is, and he points to Andrei and says "Papa." Same with "Mommy" and "Mama." If Andrei asks him in Russian where "x" is, he points to the object and names it in English.
One of the more humorous habits he currently has is that he calls all women (and some men) "Mama" and random men "Papa." And this evening he was pointing to triangles on the wallpaper and calling them "Mama" and "Papa." Ummm.....
Word List for anyone interested:
"No/Yeah" (shakes head no but doesn't nod yes yet)
"Clock" (pronounced without the 'l')
"Sees" (sit/chair/anything to do with sitting?)
"Mama," "Papa," "Ma-pa," "Pa-ma"
"Tam!" (Russian for "there," used to answer any inquiries as to where something is or what happened to it or used to give directions)
"Spsssps" (Spasibo,=thank you)/ "Takoo" (thank you)
Various articles of clothing, various body parts
Compared to 2 months ago that's quite a change. But it's kind of sad that he's already losing some of those cute sound effects!
