Lately, Henry has been cracking us up with what he is saying. He is basically mocking us or repeating things that we always tell him.
Example 1: This morning, he came into our room and was jumping on the bed. Then he started to bother Charlie. Charlie said to him, please stop, he says to Charlie, "No Dad, this isn't a game". We always say that when he starts to do something he should not be doing.
Example 2: Ellie is in the shower, she is old and sick and if you leave the shower door open when you are done she will go in there and try to lick the water. Well, Henry saw her in there. He says "Ellie get out of the shower, 1............2.............3, Ellie I said get out of the shower."
Example 3: When he gets frustrated he says "Oh God". Oooops, this one is on me - I am always saying that.
Example 4: This one I think he mocks me....I like to say "Be careful" so whenever he is walking down the steps, he says in his non gruff voice "be careful".
Example 5: He falls over - most times he says "Whoa, that was a close one". We say that to him when he falls and doesn't hit his head.
Example 6: You've got to be kidding me and C'mon are another two of his favorites. Both are family favorites.
Example 7: The barter...."Just one more". The other morning, he had two mini donuts and he wanted another. Dad had already said, "No". Henry comes and asks me for one more, I tell him to ask his father. So, he goes and asks his Dad again.....He runs back in and says "Mom, Dad said NO. MORE. DONUITS."
These stories are actually much better if you can picture Henry saying them. He has a very unique voice that everyone comments on. It's a raspy deep voice that just cracks us up. He also likes to talk with his hands so these sayings are very animated.
We have to be very careful now a days because we just never know when he is going to mimic us!
