The journey of Shane Eubanks and Crystal Alred
My little buddy is just talking away! I love to hear all of his expressions and attempts at what he’s hearing. Here’s a few precious things he’s said lately that I want to make sure I remember!
He loves his Little People Nativity, Oh Little Town of Bethlehem Book, and anything else that has a picture of a nativity scene on it. He identifies “Jeesis….Baby” in a heartbeat! So much that the other night we had a musical at church that I sang with the choir in. Little HC was in the audience and when the children did a depiction of the nativity scene, he yelled out “Jeesis…baby!”. He also yelled out “Mamen!” (to which Carli from a few pews over yelled “Amen, Harper!” LOL! He also decided to randomly count “1!, 2! 3!” in the middle of the service too! Haha, he decided there needed to be a few additions to the program!
He calls Santa Claus “S-sant C-caw” and then immediately in his lowest little voice and his little mouth in a tiny 0-shape says, “Ho, ho, ho…”
He adores the Polar Express Movie and is constantly asking for “Po Spress”…he’s getting to the point where he remembers part of the movie and repeats what’s being said.
One of my new favorite things he’s saying is “Ko-Kay” (ok), and he says it just like Eeyore…very low and slow. He uses the word in the correct context if I ask him a question, but he also uses it when he’s trying to “make a deal” with me! He’ll say something like “Mama, trains, ko-kay….” or “Eat, fruit, ko-kay…” Haha!
He’s finally counting from zero to ten by himself, only sometimes skipping a number here and there. For the longest, he just absolutely would not say seven…he’s getting the hang of it now, though!
He loves to sing. Jingle Bells is just “B-Bells, B-bells” and he fills in words that he knows are coming up in the song like “way” and “sleigh” and “bright” and “night”…it’s funny to hear!
He just learned the shape of the circle. He can identify it as “s-circ” and always says “roun and roun, roun and roun”. He can also draw it! Hooray!
He really likes the song, “The Wheels on the Bus”. He knows the wheels go “roun and roun, roun and roun”, the horn goes “beep beep beep, beep beep beep”, the babies go “ah, ah,ah, ah, ah,ah”, the mommies go “shh, shh, shh, shh, shh,shh”. He also does little motions, it’s really cute!
I could go on and on as he’s always saying something new or funny, but I’d be here all day! He’s such a gift from God and I adore being his mommy!
