Tonight, the kids and I went to some friends from church's house. Adrienne and Evangeline are both about 6 months older than both of our kids, and their parents are very cool people. They knew Andrew had been out of town, so they invited us all over so the kids could play and we adults could watch the Steelers win their game! :) It was fun.
Well, when we were on our way out to the car in the bitter cold, I was carrying Rowan and helping Ingrid get into her car seat. I bent down to help Ingrid and I must have squeezed Rowan's tummy and it made him burp... He looked at me and laughed a hearty laugh...and then got serious and said, "excuse me."
What?!? This was NOT one of the phrases we had tried to teach him--in fact, I've never even prompted him to say it! He just said it. And in context. I don't know what to do with this child. You only have to tell him something once and he's got it. Guess we'd better be careful what we say around him... :)
Of course, we think he must be a genius... ;)
