William speaks more and more every day and he never ceases to amaze me with the things he picks up. But not only is he speaking more, he is actually funny! Well, as funny as a 2 year old can be. Here are a few things he's done to make me laugh.
He was in the tub and he tooted and like a boy, started giggling. I asked, "What was that?" He said, "A toot!" then laughed and laughed. Now whenever he is in the tub, he'll splash a little with his foot and say "What's that? A toot?"
William has a few favorite TV shows I have on our DVR. When I ask him what he would like to watch he likes to see if he can confuse me. For example I'll ask, "Do you want Max and Ruby, Backyardigans, or Wubbzy?" He'll answer (with a cheezy grin) "Backyardi-WUBBZY!" or "Wubbzi- RUBY!"
He pretends to be a puppy all the time. He'll say, "Puppy!" and then he'll chase me around the front room on all fours trying to "puppy-kiss" me with his tongue hanging out. If he catches me, he'll lick my arm or cheek and then he'll say, "puppy tickles!" and start to tickle me. Then he'll take his snack and try to eat off the floor (eww!) I gave him a "puppy bowl" that he eats out of head first.
We had a Family Home Evening activity where I was trying to teach William how to show love for others and that it makes us happy. Now, he'll ask if I'm happy and usually it's right after I've gotten after him for something, so I'll say, "No, I'm not happy right now." Then he'll run up to me and give me a big hug and kiss. Then he'll ask again if I'm happy. Who wouldn't be after that?! Oh, and if I ask him if he's happy and he ALWAYS says, "no" until I give him hugs and kisses. Then he'll answer "yes."
William LOVES hats. Weird huh? He found is tiny baby cap and stretched that thing on his huge head. It looked like a red yamaka. He got upset when I took it off him and explained it was too small. He loves to wear jackets with hoods. He has a couple of jackets without hoods and he will pull the top over his head anyway so he looks like he doesn't have a neck. He is completely serious about it which makes it so funny.
I know every mother must feel this way about their kids, but I thought I'd share a little about what makes me laugh at home.
