Loving the Bulol Phase

I am so loving Aki’s bulol phase. Writing down some of his bulol words because 1) for sure, I will miss hearing them once Aki’s pronouncation gets better and 2) I will forget them if I don’t list them now.  Thanks to my momnesia.

(‘ ) – pronouncation is maragsa
(” “) – English pronouncation
(-)  – short pause between syllables
