Many of these have to do with his ever growing vocabulary, his ability to remember the strangest things and repeat them, and his mispronunciation of words. :)
- When he wants us to lay be him at night he said to us: " Lay by jew" (meaning lay by you, which really means, lay by me, but he got it from us asking, do you want me to lay by you. If we correct him and say, " no, it's lay by me, " he says, "oh! Lay by jew, me."
- Whenever Dad asks him what he did that day, he says, "park!" regardless of wether or not we went. Sometimes he comes up with extravagant days such as going to the beach and swimming in the warm ocean. If only we lived in his imaginary days.
- In the morning he will come into our bed and often say "breakfast!" We have started asking him what he wants for breakfast. One day a few months ago, he responded for the first time and said pancakes, so by golly, we had pancakes. Now he always responds with "cinnamon..." and then goes on to name breakfast foods, or my favorite is when he starts saying things like "cherry pie, chocolate cake" which he picked up from reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Cinnamon comes from when we have rice and raisins with cinnamon. He learned there that he loves cinnamon and we now put it on rice and raisins, oatmeal, applesauce, and all things that could use a little cinnamon.
- Prayers: Hudson is a good little prayer, and folds his arms and closes his eyes. He is sometimes a little eye police though and will say "closureyes" (close your eyes-really fast) and often directs this phrase to Hallie. At the end of the prayer, he follows with "Christ, Amen." He used to just say " amen," but has changed recently. I think the change came when we had him start to actually say the prayer, and he would say the whole phrase.
- Whenever Hudson has something stuck in his teeth, he says "chicken mouth." The first time he ever had something caught in his teeth, it was chicken, and thus the phrase was born. Also, whenever he sees one of those flosser/toothpicks, he calls it a "chicken mouth."
