That's William's favorite expression these days. He actually leads me on, allowing me to be hopeful that he just might do what I've asked him to do. But then....nope. No. No. NO. The favorite words of an almost two year old.
This morning he found John's cell phone, picked up, put it to his ears and said "Hello sweetie." WHAT?!? Where on earth did he pick THAT expression up? John never calls me "sweetie". "Sweetheart", sure, but "sweetie"? Never.
At church the other night, the four of us were in the cry room and I had just finished changing Abigail's diaper. John went over to the trash to throw it away. The trash was almost overflowing, and not wanting to tetter a poopy diaper on the tippy top of it all, he lifted the 2-liter pop bottle and placed the diaper under it. A few minutes later, after the service was finished, I gave the bulletin to William to throw away. He ran to the trash, and instead of just placing the bulletin in the bin, he lifted the 2-liter pop bottle and placed the bulletin under it. It's amazing how he watches everything we do!
My folks are taking a little side vacation up to Yosemite while here, and the other day Mom texted me. My phone makes a little ring sound every time a text comes in, and William knows it's a message. He asked, "Whozit?", and I said it was Oma. The very next thing he said was "What Oma doin'?" I can't believe the conversations I have my 23 month old son!
One last little funny....William loves to help me care for Abby. When I change her diaper I usually pull a step stool up to the table so he can hand me the diaper and wipes. Well, even though Abby is quite the little lady, she's not always the most modest, shall we say, when it comes to keeping the poop/pee in her diaper. When the diaper is off, she feels like she can still pee/poop at her discretion. So the other day when I was changing her this very thing happened, and William's expression and comment was priceless: in a look of utter shock, he said "Abby ..(pause)...poopin'."
Things may be a little crazy at our house with two kids, but things are never dull! :-)
