This kid.

His words and conversations are things I want to remember about this time.

Here are some recent talks we have had with him.

My niece was in a play this weekend so we sent her a good luck video. I just can’t.

We were in the car for this one:

“Stop signs are red, and that stop sign is very stoppie. Then you need to close your lips.”

George was on the toilet trying to go number two:

“My tummy hurts. I think it was the broccoli.” (George doesn’t ever eat broccoli.)

We have made getting our chicken eggs a chore for George every day.

Me-“Since you get to help with the eggs, do you think that you would like to eat eggs now?”

George-“No, I only like shakes and hotdogs.” (FYI, this is not the only thing we feed him.)

We were sitting down for lunch one weekend, when George gets up and goes out to the front deck and screams.

“I just needed to use my loud voice.” (At least he is listening about inside and outside voices.)

And that doesn’t even top one of my favorite videos I have ever taken of George. I die every time I watch this.

We usually read several books to George, and then he gets to pick out one book to take into his bed. One night he was holding me hostage in his room to continue reading.

Me-“George it is time to go to bed. I am not going to read anymore books tonight.”

George-“Ok I will read, and you can just say the words.”

And just tonight, George said this to me while cooking dinner.

George-“I don’t want to eat what you are cooking.”

Me-“Do you even now what I am cooking?”

George-“No, but I know I will feed it to the dogs.”

Life is never boring with this one.

I could listen to George talk all day. His sweet little voice just melts my heart, and he says some of the funniest things. So I want to start documenting those things before I forget.

Here are some of the phrases and words that he has had.

For the longest time he called his cousin Ava, Eva.

He likes to drop parts of words like “liveries” is deliveries, and “arm” is alarm.

Broccoli is “backoli.”

A piggy bank is a “moneyer.”

Uses is “oozes.”

Caterpillar is “lalapiller.”

Pretzels is “printzels.”

He says “full it up” for fill it up. And “hot it up” to warm things.

For a long time he called a police car a race car.

We live next to the capital of Missouri, and every time we drive by, George says “There’s the catapult.”

A yoyo is a “sticker roller.”

A peacock is a “peahock.”

Before we got chickens, he used to call them “brockers.”

A pepperoni pizza is a “macaroni pizza.” He does know the difference of pasta macaroni.

A chimney is a “smoker arm.”

An ostrich is a “raustid.”

Fire sparks are “jumpers.”

A microwave is a “counterwave.”

He is so smart, but there are moments where he uses these phrases that remind me how small he really is.
