What is your definition of morph? Can a baby morph into a toddler?

Without looking it up, I think morph has two origins, but you're speaking of the one meaning, "form." I see nothing wrong wish using the term as you have done. As for the other origin, babies and toddlers are at their best when Morpheus visits them! Wink

Maybe, though I wouldn't use it that way. I think of Morph being a rather faster process.

I'd say Kalleh's example works OK if the child is not yours and you haven't seen them for a while.

"My, how you've grown! Last time I saw you you were just a baby!" (To parents) "They grow up so fast!"

I don't think anyone would talk of a baby morphing into a toddler in front of their eyes.


Build a man a fire and he's warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he's warm for the rest of his life.

For the record, someone else used that term (about my sweet grandchild), and I thought it was wrong - or, at least, like Bob, I'd not use it that way. I thought the definition was more like this.

More like metamorphosis? Still, "morph" is contained therein.

It just sounded odd to me. Babies don't go through metamorphosis when they grow.
