Asher: (walking up as Mom unloads the dishwasher) Hi, Mom. I back.
Mom: Oh, hi. Where were you? (Just to be clear, he was sitting on the floor in the family room.)
Asher: I was at work.
Mom: Oh. What did you do at work today?
Asher: Eat chocolate chip cookies and go to da gym.
Mom: Wow! Sounds like fun. What else did you do?
Asher: Play wid da choo choo and track.
Asher is a total parrot right now. He copies sounds, words, phrases, everything. He do-do-da-do's along with the background music of his favorite movies and he quotes lines from them. The other day as Richard was leaving for work Asher randomly said to me " and customers and ladders" and it took me forever to figure out that he was quoting a line from The Incredibles (Mr. I is leaving home and Mrs. I says to him "Have a good day. Help customers, climb ladders..."). He even had the right inflection! He is soaking up new words like a sponge. So much, in fact, that I can't understand him half the time because I don't recognize his pronunciation of the new words. It is so fun to see children in these phases where the world is just literally growing for them and I can actually SEE it happening.
...Now if only Isaiah were talking at all!
