Say what?

Su and I like to think we do a pretty good job of translating Danny's burgeoning English, but this week we both had moments where we had to pause.

The first was when he was running excitedly around while contruction of his new bed was going on yelling "kicking butt! kicking butt!" Huh?

But apparently he was yelling "fixing bed! fixing bed!" Ohhhh....  (Good use of the gerund though buddy!)

Then last night when we were driving downtown to get Su, I suddenly stopped my singing mid-note after hearing what I swear sounded like "shut up! shut up!". I will admit I felt a little shattered. We always used to tell our mom not to sing when we were kids and I guess I was now getting my just desserts.

To be sure though I asked "what did you say?"

"Sun up! Sun up!" Awesome. He was just mad that the sun had gone down for the night!

And now, back to my favorite song. -Monica

Danny is talking more and more clearly every day. I'm so proud of him.
