Nein, Nein, Nein, No!

Lake is expanding his vocabulary at an ever increasing rate. It’s a maelstrom of German and English words, and lately it seems like there’s a new one coming every day or every day twice a day. Today he has several handfuls has in circulation:


Mama, Dada, Nana, Jo

Cat, meiu, woof woof

Uh oh

Nein, no, uh uh


Hi, bye, tschuß

Heiß, hot




It’ll be a new surprise every day. He’s so open and loving. Fearless, curious, friendly, resilient and with a sense of humor.

And I think his favorite word, which he employs for subtly different meanings in a variety or circumstances, is “No!”
