"change mine diaper please momma"
He uses "Mine" quite a bit, and it sounds very shakesperean and cute.
He is very empathetic.He sees a sad baby or person, and says"oh,baby sad"..need momma milk"( momma milk fixes everything!)
Last week he recited jack and Jill..it was amazing and I still cannot get over it.I am so proud.... Here is his version:

Jack fall down and bump him crown...
and jill evidently never comes down...unless I ask,,then "jill tumble after".
He has a rythem to the poem and that makes it even cuter to.
like: ba dum..ba dum..
If you ask him if he wants to go somewhere, he either says yes and tells you where he wants to go as well, or say"no,stay home in pauls little house".
Sometimes in the car he burts out singing" Eee-I-Eee-I-Oh, moo moo here"and thats his song,
yesterday hey did "this little piggy on his baby dolls feeet.i was astounded.he did leave out the raost beef part, so he looked at me like"what am I missing here" so I said it, and he did it all over again.
Somedays he tells me he wats to go to church.Or school .He has also been telling me"i a big boy". sob sob.
I really enjoy this age.I love the things he thinks of and comes up with.everyday it is something new and sweet.I also get sad because he is growing up so fast......and I want to hang on to this as long as possible.
