...you are Daniel...you've been funny, but now you're even funnier, and you're much more verbally funny.
A few things that you've said or done recently have really either melted my heart, been hilariously funny, or just so dang cute!
The first thing took a little bit of interpretation. We'd heard you saying something (a phrase) that sounded like it had the word "tool" in it. But that was about all we could make out...and we figured that maybe you were just saying a word, not an entire phrase. Then this past weekend it occurred to me exactly what you were saying.
We were up in our bedroom, and you went over to Jared's pack-n-play (he wasn't in it). You peeked in, almost looked like you were wanting to climb in yourself, but then you stopped. Staring right at me, you said "Hmm...I know!"...insert pause and index finger to the chin in deep contemplation..."We need a Mousekatool!". At that point, I wasn't quite sure of what you'd said with any certainty, but you continued with "Everybody say OH TOODLES!". Oh geez...you silly silly boy! Trying to do the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse thing!
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and you've been imitating the things we say too. You're a goofy little backseat driver "Come ON cars...GO!" or "Dad...green...GO!". Yes, you're super cute. The funny imitation from last night was when we were picking up pizza and we parked and your dad ran in. Jared started fussing a little bit, so I spoke in a calming voice to him, saying "It's OK Jer-bear...it's OK...". No sooner than I stop talking, you start in with "It's OK Jer-bear...no cry...Daddy be right back". So cute :)
And lastly (for this post at least), the interaction with your baby brother. You're still very possessive of your toys (the ones you are playing with at that moment), and Jared tries to grab things that you have sometimes, quite innocently. The cute thing that you did, beyond trying to take your toy back, was to provide Jared with another toy..."Here Jared...play with this!".
I hope that I continue to write about these little Daniel-isms...they're so darn cute!
