Peter’s latest funny goes beyond the background music he sings while playing with his guys (he hums Darth Maul’s Duel of the Fates, or the theme to The A-Team — more on this later). The new level of adorable is related to his speech development. You may remember the faux Italian end-everything-in-a-vowel (“I like-a your shirt…”) Now, as a speech pathologist might say, it’s a lack of practical tongue movement knowledge when combining fricatives with plosive consonants. Don’t know what that means? Then check out these definitions for some of Peter’s current words and phrases. It’s like a game of fizz-buzz, except he’s very good at it because he can’t help himself.
