baby talk...

Asher has such adorable adaptations of words.  I've been wanting to video him talking, but he mostly freezes up or fights me for the video camera.  So I'm taking a little time today to write them down here before he learns to say them the right way and I forget all about mungas and dine-choes.

movie:  munga (he has actually learned to say it now as "moo-ey" which is what pushed me to finally write this post)
yogurt:  jogurk
dinosaurs:  dine-choes
thank you:  dee coe
more:  meer
another:  a-wah
cracker:  tat-chi
hyena:  hye nina
tiger:  tigee
lion:  wyant
The Croods:  tudes
Wild Kratts:  why tats

funny ash...

I am so happy that my kids are nuts!  It makes life so much fun.  Asher has the funniest little habits. Here are a few examples:

-He refuses to sleep on his bed.  Instead he sleeps on the floor by his door with his face pressed up against the door so he can look out of the crack under the door and see what is going on with his chubby fingers sticking out.

-Before he goes to sleep, he all of his clothes out of his drawers and fits them on his arms.  When he wakes up, he walks around the house with both arms pointing up at right angles in an attempt to keep the clothes from falling off.

-He is obsessed with my phone.  If I ever leave it within his reach, he will grab it and run to find a hiding place.  And he screams like a banshee when I take it away.  

-All little figurines (dinosaurs, animals, Little People, etc.) fascinate him.  He will put as many as he can in his hands and wander around the house just holding them.  He also can't leave Nana's little Honduran nativity alone (though why it is out year-round, I don't know!).
