Colin says thank you to me for everything. No matter what I do. If I hand him a tissue, "thank you, mommy." If I feed him, if I put his clothes on. Whatever the circumstances he always says thank you. Very sweet. Even though he says it alot it never loses its meaning. For some strange reason "thank you, Mommy" is usually followed by "happy birthday, Mommy". The have all been saying "happy birthday" since September. Ciaran and Cormac say thank you but not as often.
Colin is also going through a phase of "lubbing" everything. Lubbing=loving. Colin out of nowhere will say "I lub Duke", I lub forks","I lub leaves". He is obviously a happy, thankful and loving child!
Ciaran is into saying "that's my favorite". Suddenly, everything is his favorite. It changes daily what his favorite is but he consistently says it. He also has to say things at least 2 times in a row. "look at this" is also another big phrase he uses.
We always say "see you later, alligator" or "after a while crocodile" and "see you soon, racoon". For some reason the boys always say "see you later, crocodile" or "see you later, racoon". If you say it first they will repeat it correctly but on their own they say it wrong.
Cormac pointed to some animals at the zoo today and said "look at these guys over there". While we were walking in the zoo he pointed to his ear and said "I hear the train whistle". Now, we couldn't have been farther from the train if we wanted. I couldn't believe he heard it. The majic of cochlear implants. Still amazed by them. He also used to just say he hears a train but today he added train whistle.
