Nice to mee-choo!
Because Josh does not always talk so clear...I think we underestimate what he truly knows and understands.
Since China we have called him Joshee. This what the boys call him, and what Steve and I call him. But outside of our family: School, some of the grandparents, and people in the neighborhood....well...they call him Joshua.
It seems that Joshee has a preference as to what he is called? If I call him Joshee, he will correct me and say - "My JAWA" ;like the star wars characters. Jah - wah. Yep...that's him. (shu) is hard for JAWA to say...the SH mixed with a vowel throws him for a loop!! :)
And to take it one step further - we are in the post office yesterday and JAWA walks up to a lady sorting mail and said, "My JAWA...nice to mee - CHoo!" and then he giggled and walked away. ...And she said back to him, "Nice to meet you Joshua." OH my....she understood him and he just smiled from ear to ear knowing that she had a full understanding of what he had said!! :) Success!!!
It's official...Joshee is no longer....please meet JAWA Mongold! :)
