Eric has taken to using the word "hey!" lately, and generally in random situations. Playing with Evan, playing by himself, sitting at the dinner table, suddenly he just goes "hey!" And at least one person asks him what's going on and he looks at you as though you're crazy. Because clearly the "hey" is not directed at anyone.
This morning I took him to Costco with me so I did not have to listen to Evan ask "is it time to go to soccer" seventeen thousand times. Eric's a good shopping companion, if you can get past the fact that he will make a mess out of whatever snack you give him. Otherwise, we wandered the aisles of Costco singing ABCs, Baa-baa Black Sheep, counting to ten, and other such nonsense. We were almost done and I said "okay Eric, we just need to get the mangoes"
And he proceeded to repeat this as we went through the checkout, while we got gas, and then the whole way home.
