Johan's current addition to his growing vocabulary. I know it sounds like the Filipino word for sink but I like it that way coming from my little man. There may be different versions: A-yu, A-bu, Ya-yu, but nevertheless, they all mean the same and even though my young Johan cannot grasp yet the true meaning of the phrase, our hearts swell every single time he mentions it, after he kisses us, more than a dozen times every single day.
Ba-bu is Johan's way of saying, I love you.
And we love you, too, dear boy.
Always have, always will.
