Mainly wanted to post a little “something” to let y’all know that I’m not forgetting about you. I’m just crazy busy!
As usual, I can’t get enough of the little Monkey’s vocabulary growth. Lately he’s really starting to piece together language and come up with his own phrases based on “passing” information. In other words, he’ll say stuff and Alex or I will look at the other and say, “Did YOU teach him that?” “Not me, you?” “Maybe he learned it at daycare!” But sometimes it wasn’t learned at daycare either. It just filtered in through a combination of overhearing conversations, catching something on tv… whatever…! It’s pretty cool when it happens.
Today we were walking with the dogs, his aunt, and his mom. He starts saying “Superman!” and then jumping a little. We looked at each other, shaking our heads in a negatory “Nope, I didn’t think he even knew what superman was.” Probably learned it from a little friend, which is cool.
But then hilarity. After an unsuccessful attempt to fly like superman, he looks at his own arms, and exclaims, “Codey not have wings!”
This repeated a few times. The jumping, the discovery that he’s not flying, and then the discovery that “Codey not have wings!”
That kid just cracks me up.
A few days back, mom was drilling him on body parts, including the parts that make him a boy. What’s that? “Penis.” And that? “JUNK!”
Hilarious, though a somewhat inaccurate use of the term. A proud papa am I.
