Should have named him Moorcah

Boys generally start speaking more slowly than girls, and with the multiple languages, we haven’t worried about Ruben’s slow start to speech.

One of the landmarks for kids this age is putting two words together, which Ruben started this week, not surprisingly, with “More Car”. We’re excited, but also chagrined, as he is still unable to say his own name.

Now he runs around like he’s John Malkovich in his eponymous movie*, repeating MoreCar MoreCar MoreCar ad nauseum. When we ask him his name, he stops and grins goofily, and then resumes his MoreCar rantings.

On the bright side, he’s able to reliably identify the letters B, A, O and P. All other letters are “B” followed by a goofy smile. Or “MoreCar”.

*Yes, I’m proud to have used that word outside of referencing REM.
