Desmond hiding behind the curtain: "I'm a Jertain!" While reviewing our phone number with Desmond, Davin says it and Desmond replys, "Good job, Daddy." The next time Davin says it Desmond says, "Good job, Daddy, again." The third time Davin prompts him to repeat it, Desmond says, "Good job, Daddy, again and again." At Sweet Tomatoes Desmond was playing around rather than eating. Davin was trying to get him to finish his dinner and rather than saying it verbally again, he simply pointed to Desmond's food. Desmond then turned with a smile and pointed to Davin's food. We got a good laugh at his imitation. While making dinner Desmond was helping me roll out the dough and he said, "Dough. Doe a deer!" He's always making new associations. I'm not sure where he picked up this word because it's not like we're saying it all the time but in the car Desmond all of a sudden blurts out, "Husband." I told him that Daddy was my husband so he repeated, "Daddy is my husband." Later at dinner I was telling Davin about it and Desmond said again, "Daddy is my husband." We corrected him and told him that Davin was not his husband but his daddy and he was only my husband. Desmond was about to cry because he wanted Daddy to be his husband. We kept explaining about family relationships: daddy, mommy, son, husband, wife, brother, sister. Desmond just ended up confused but at least we avoided tears.
