These are some of Max's favourite phrases:
1. My Favourite
I don't know exactly where he picked this up from, but for certain it's from TV, PHDC.
So often when we are watching a familiar music VCD, he'd start stating, "This, my favourite." and it's not just one but a few of the songs which he really likes. He'd also point out, "This, Mommy's favourite?" To which Mommy will say "Yes".
Sometimes he'll say that about food, "My favourite. Black noodle."
Drinks, "My favourite. Strawberry milkshake."
Snack, "My favourite. Cheese snails." (Cut up strips of slice cheese and roll it up.)
Cartoon character, "My favourite, (Lightning) McQueen*." (He actually says it as my-queen, which makes him sound so adorable, and sometimes we the adults around him forget ourselves and follows him, saying the "wrong" thing.)
Dessert, "My favourite. Ice-cream!"
Sometimes, when he is simply happy about what's given, or what we are doing, he will just declare that that is his favourite.
2. Don't Know
Whenever we try to quiz him about something, more like drilling and grilling I feel at times, his first answer would be, "Don't know". Then he'll give you the expected answer if you wait just over a second. So if you ask him,
What color is your dog?What car does Daddy drive?
What animal starts with 'A'?
How old are you?
To these, his first answer would be "Don't know" which comes with a cheeky smile.
Other phrases he uses more than 3 times a day:
what is it?which one?
mah-mah (grandma) where?
koh-koh (older brother) where?
daddy (at) work?
nan-nan now. (want to nurse)
you mean now?
Carry me! Carry me!
* This post was actually inspired by Max's favourite MyQueen. His favourite is the one you saw above. It was one of the collectibles we got from McDonald's when they had the Cars promotion about 2 years back. He has held the car so often that most of the paint had come off.
