He likes to go around going "dewree-dewree? dewree-dewree?" I think (I could be wrong) that I figured out that this means, "Whatchoo doing?" Something that I am always asking him. He especially says this when he excapes into the bathroom. I always call in to him when he's in there, and aske "Whatcha doing!? Whatcha doing!?" cause i don't want him to fall into the toilet or put his mouth onto dirty things in there, and he always calls back "Dewree-dewree? Dewree-dewree?" I guess that's what that means.
