Today he was playing with playdough and a plastic strainer. He was swishing the dough ball around inside the strainer and said, "Check this out mom." And then a few minutes later he said, "Did you check it out?"
When he was playing on the computer he did something he enjoyed and he exclaimed, "Holy moley! Did you see that??" That one had me cracking up since I'd never heard him use the expression before.
Dean has taken to repeating us, especially when we're being stern with him. Dean was moving all around at dinner tonight, not staying in his chair and just kind of making messes by touching everything on the table. Matt said, "Dean, you need to control yourself." And Dean quickly replied (almost under his breath), "No! You need to control yourself." Emphasis and all. Matt put him in a time out for sassing and we were both trying not to laugh hard enough for him to hear us.
He's very interested in the digestive process and will occasionally tell me about what's happening to his food. "The food goes down, down, down into Dean's tummy and goes squish, squish, squish. Then it goes into the guntestines and comes out Dean's bum as pee and poo."
He occasionally gets out my yoga mat, puts in an old Firm Body Parts Abs VHS, and commences doing sit ups. It is hilarious. He'll say things like, "Dean's getting exercise in Dean's body!"
