How rare

Julian's asleep. He's still asleep. I think he's recently entered his third hour of nap. I guess the "ice cream coma" effect is much more powerful on a two year old than, say, his abba-who-has-ten-times-his-mass. Heh.

I've kept busy with post-Shabbat cleaning. I've done two loads of laundry and am running a load of dishes in the dishwasher. I came downstairs to kill time while the drier finished running; now I can run another load in the washer. What can I say? My life is exciting.

Oh, the reason that Julian got ice cream was that he got a haircut, and he did very well. Now I'm waiting for Karen to come home and validate that the haircut looks nice. :)

I guess if Julian's still asleep after I fold this latest load of laundry, there's a living room to clean. If anyone wants to save me (us) from this exciting life, feel free to call. We're not up to anything more exciting than this.

And my drop-down list of icons is missing. Very unusual.

*edit* Okay, once I edited, it appeared. Weird.

Third time is the charm
This time all I'm saying is your are lucky Julian doesn't have 'codes' for food and I'm following your link.

Re: Third time is the charm
He does have plenty of mystery moments. He used to say 'banana' just fine, but somewhere along the way it degraded to 'gana' and it took Karen and me a week to figure out what the heck he meant. That's not the only mystery, but he's getting better each day.

Re: Third time is the charm
He has a few, but I deal with it by picking him up and carrying him around the kitchen saying "show me" until he finds it and points to it. If I just say "show me" and don't pick him up, he points in the general vicinity of the entire kitchen (particularly if it's above his head) which is far less useful.

Like Seth said, banana was actually one of his first, completely clear words. A couple months later, it was "I want gana!" screamed over and over and over and over until I picked him up and walked him around the kitchen. He was able to grasp the banana and hand it to me as if to say, "what are you, dense? THIS is a gana, you idiot!" OH! Banana! Yes!

Poor kid. He's fun, but sometimes he frustrates himself far more than necessary. ;)
