We’ve all come to recognise Luk Chai’s little noises. When he’s excited he does a little snort-snuffle and when he’s playing with one of his favourite toys or running towards the adults he makes a high pitched “grrrr” noise.
Amongst his normal (but vocal!) vocabulary are grunts and gargling sounds. Today, he let out a new noise, his first real trumpet blast! It was a mini version of what his dad Gung does.
He was playing with some tyres we’d placed in a hay net and in the excitement his little trunk trumpeted. The girls were so surprised by the new noise that they stopped what there were doing and glanced over at him.
