More and enough

My one year old son uses two words (besides mama, baba, and dada) to communicate with us. I must admit I admire his choice in using those words which are baad and bas (Arabic for more and enough). Since he spends most of his day feeding then they seem like perfect communication tools but they are not limited to food item. He sits and commands, “more” then we try to repeat all that has happened.

Sometimes he recalls thinks that happened on other days in the same place or situation. For instance when he sits in front of my laptop he will say, “more” so that I would open a clip that has a children song he likes. He would say enough when his older brother hugs him hard and everything else seems to be orchestrated by these two words as he commands. It is such a joy to be able to know what he wants even in simple relative scale.
