e-Lew’s Dictionary: Amoo
November 23, 2013 § Leave a comment
This one is for posterity…
Amoo [ah-moo], proper noun: The best brother ever.
Just this week, Eldyn has corrected his pronunciation for Hiram’s name. He says it so correctly now, I feel certain we’ll soon forget how cute it was when he called his brother “Amoo.”
- “No Amoo!”
- “Amoo fell down.”
- “Amoo’s shoes.”
- “Amoo sleepin.”
I also loved that eLew and Amoo rhyme. It made it a snap to invent song lyrics about brothers, for one thing.
But. It’s amazing to hear Eldyn develop his ear and word-making muscles. How carefully he’s practicing the word “Hiram” and how perfectly he says it now, almost every time.
