Isaac adds endings onto nouns to turn them into adjectives. For intance, he has said, "that shirt is pretty Halloweeniful."
Isaac knows how to say first, but if he is trying say an ordinal number that comes after that, like second or third, he will say "the twof," or "threef." At least he's aware the word should be different, right?
At Christmastime, Isaac's class had to color a picture of Santa stuck in the chimney and write what they would do to help him. Isaac's paper said, "if santa was stuck in the chimney--I'd jump on his bottom." That made me laugh.
On the drive back and forth from Grammy Jo and Bampa's house, there are a lot of empty stretches of road. The only real cities we pass though are Kingman and Wickenberg. On our last trip, after passing Hoover Dam and driving for a bit, Isaac asked, "Are we at Kingberger yet?"
One day when I was in my swimming suit, Isaac looked at my tummy (which admittedly is rather large, unfortunately) and said, "Maybe one of your eggs is trying to hatch."
pretend--tootend, Hannah Montana--hanna tana, Hair-do--hair stu, Excuse me--weesies. She also didn't like sleeping in her big girl bed and always wanted to either sleep in our bed or have us lay with her until she fell asleep. She would say, "I'm too lonn," meaning I'm too lonely.
The other day, Sareny was asking us, "Who's that scary guy bampa is always talking about?" It took some detective work, but Keith figured out she was talking about when Bampa tells them spooky stories about Injun Joe from Tom Sawyer. Sareny said, "Engine Joe--I knew it started with a train, like Train Joe."
Finley had the spotlight bag for primary, and she was supposed to bring in some items that she liked. She packed the bag by herself, but not knowing that she had already put a watch in, I put in a pretty one that I knew she liked. When she pulled the first watch out, she said, "I like to wear watches." Later when she pulled the second watch out, I was wondering what she was going to say. Apparently, she's a fast thinker, because she said, "I like to know what time it is."
A few months ago, she had to go to the dentist for some fillings, and it took two appointments. At the second appointment, she asked me, "Are my lips going to be yum again?" Since then she has said a couple of times, "Remember when I went to the dentist and my lips were yum?" When we left the dentists office, he said she should eat soft food and listed a few things, including scrambled eggs. When we got home, that is what she wanted to eat. Later in the day, she said, "I want some more rotten eggs."
One Sunday she was getting ready for church and said she was going to wear her boots and put on perfume because, "I want to look 'tacular."
