Lake came out of the “talking-gate” speaking German.
It means I, and he uses it mostly to indicate his desires, and mostly involving edibles. Like this evening, pointing at the blueberry bushes in our front yard that now have ripe blueberries on them after I picked a few for him.
He wants more blueberries. Of course he does! He loves blueberries.
His pronunciation is so beautiful!
Ich. Ich. Ich.
Again this evening when we had the fruits and vegetables platters out for movie night. He wanted more grapes and jicama.
Yes, Lake, Ich, Ich Ich Liebe Dich!
