Jason is quite the character. His cuteness far outweighs his defiant, controlling demeanor. When he enters the room, he shouts, "Ta DA! I'm HERE!!!" or "Hello, Mommy...I'mmmmm HERE!" as if I've been waiting for him all day. He seriously cracks me up.
Here are some of the sweet things he mixes up right now. He's suddenly pronouncing his L's and R's much better, so his toddler-speak won't be around for long. (*sigh*)
Words I want to remember:
"checkup" = ketchup
"chicken" = kitchen
"spur" = stir
" case in idea" = quesadilla
"epha-lent" = elephant
"scudder" = scooter, which he asks to ride every time we pull into the garage
"forgive us" = forgiveness - as in "Jason, go apologize for pinching Ryan and ask for forgiveness." "Sorry Ryan, will you forgive us?"
He also says, "How we doin'?" after he says "hi" sometimes.
With all of his silly words, his speech continues to awe and amaze strangers. Just this week, some girls at the park were entertaining each other having him recite their names and random sentences that they asked him to say. I should act as his manager and begin charging a fee for his services...!
