Miles is learning to talk backwards. The donkey says “Haw Hee. Haw Hee.” If you ask him to say “Doggie,” he reports back: “Geedaw.”
He also likes to do this ecstatic whirling dervish dance, head cocked back, eyes on the sky or branches above, smiling so huge you’d think his head would pop, until he falls backwards or sideways to the floor or lawn, laughing uproariously.
Words cannot describe how much we enjoy his company. Most. Fun. Ever.

Enjoy it now because when adolescence hits, you’ll think the exact opposite.
Seriously though, I’m glad to hear you’re getting your money’s worth.
Hum….I just had an image of a 15-year-old Miles doing his Dervish dance, talking backwards, falling hysterically on the lawn…rather like Scot, circa 1982.
My nephew David also talks backwards. But entirely backwards. “Nuss” is “sun.”
Miles will be reporting to him at the White House in 40 years.
