Until recently, Aaron's response to every question directed at him, has been, "I'm Aaron." What's your name? "I'm Aaron." "How old are you?" "I'm Aaron." ...
Well, similarly to the way I've noticed he is putting it all together to figure out verb tenses (he corrected himself a couple weeks ago, to say, "I saw it," instead of "I see it."), he seems to be paying attention to the pleasantries of conversation with people we are meeting for the first time.
So this is how the conversation went at the poolside bar yesterday evening. Austin, Aaron and I were seated at the bar and Aaron began the conversation:
A3: "Austin, what's your name?"
A1 (looking a bit perplexed): "My name's Austin."
A3 (questioningly): "No. What's your name ... Three?"
C (aha!): "Oh, THAT question is (whispered into Aaron's ear) 'How old are you?'"
A3 (to Austin): "Are hold who you?" then, he immediately seemed embarrassed.
C (whispering in A3's ear, and more slowly this time): "How old are you?"
A3 (looking down with a scowl on his face): "I can't say that."
A1 (smiling): "I'm 11."
