Tri-lingual?

Ethan loves to read, he'll get a stack of books and sit all afternoon, reading. Of course, he doesn't actually know how to read, he just makes up the stories (unless he's memorized it, because I've read it 76,000 times!!!!)

Lately though, he's started reading all his books in, what I can only assume, is his own special "Japanese" language. It's soooo funny, he'll go on and on for a full hour! If you don't know Japanese, or haven't heard it very often, you might actually think he's saying something. But it's just silly babbling.

His favorite books are actually toy catalogs. He still has, and loves to read, the Toys R' Us and Target catalogs from Xmas of '07, that my mom sent! They're very tattered and have been taped and stapled nearly beyond recognition, but he loves them. In this clip, he's reading a Tomy toy train catalog. What a goofball!

He's probably just practising for school! He's got the syllables right! Isn't he clever! Katie

LOL! That's probably what Japanese sounds like to him! He should know, since he hears it day in day out at school! Katie
