Marzena: (SLOW) nasza (REGULAR) nasza
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "lovely daughter."
Marzena: córeczka
Eric: Even though this noun means "daughter," it is a diminutive, which changes the meaning to "lovely daughter", showing the love that parents have for their child. Listen again- "lovely daughter" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) córeczka (REGULAR) córeczka
Eric: All together, "Our daughter!"
Marzena: Nasza córeczka!

Eric: Her college friend, Tomek, uses an expression meaning - "Just like daddy!"
Marzena: (SLOW) Wykapany tatuś! (REGULAR) Wykapany tatuś!
Marzena: Wykapany tatuś!
Eric: Use this expression if you think the baby is similar to the father.
Eric: Her supervisor, Bartek, uses an expression meaning - "My congratulations!"
Marzena: (SLOW) Moje gratulacje! (REGULAR) Moje gratulacje!
Marzena: Moje gratulacje!
