J Speaks

I typed this up for my journal tonight and couldn't resist sharing. So here are some snippets of J right now, just turned 2.

J is so cute lately. He's learning so many words and beginning to put them together in adorable ways. Yesterday, he was really upset and he was screaming, "Towel (Tah-well), towel, towel!" I asked what he needed a towel for, and he pointed at his cheek and said, "Towel... water... face!" As if to say, I need a towel for this water that's coming out of my face. You mean you want a tissue to wipe your tears? We can do that!

He has a growly voice he talks in whenever he's really into something. He uses this voice to talk about lawn mowers and Star Wars. "Mower ... green ... gram-paw ... ride it! ... jar-jar ... binks ... D2 ... Vader ... a-kin (anakin) ... battle dwoid ... Woook (luke)" He also has a high pitched, soft sweet voice that he uses occasionally, like when he says, "Hi, baby!" to me. This morning, it was "Hi, little buddy!"

Tonight, Uncle Matt sang "I am a Child of God" to J, pausing at the end of each line to see if he knew the words, and he did! He could complete all the lines... at least till he got distracted.

When he snuggles into a blanket or pillow, he often says it's "cumpy" (comfy). Today, we had smoothies twice, at his request. He calls them snoovies.

A couple of weeks ago, he got the idea that he could remove his own head, as though he were a Lego mini-fig. It has tapered off, but every once in a while, I'm still catching him with his hands on his chin and cheeks, pushing upward, grunting, and saying, "Head ... off!" That cracks us all up!
