Iain-isms Abound

Iain, on checking the empty mailbox: This one is out of mail. I want to check another one.

Looking in the closet: I'm checking in to see if they have shoes. They do.

Just now, when I asked Iain what funny things he's said recently: Buuuum-py.

Sometimes at night, Iain and I have a little game where I tell him what things I love him bigger than/faster than/longer than/etc. One night, I said: Iain, I love you faster than a train. I love you louder than a train. I love you bigger than a train.
Iain: I like the train better.

Yesterday while driving, I had to stop rather quickly, as the truck in front of me slammed on his breaks. I asked the boys if they were okay and said something about the crazy drivers.
Iain: Yeah, and Mama is a a crazy driver.
Me: No I'm not!
Iain: Yeah, you stopped too fast.

Not particularly quippy, but cute: here's how Iain ALWAYS wants his drink.
Iain: May I have some cold-water-and-ice-please.

The other day while playing with Aunt Kelsey's hair (and later the exact same thing with my own hair)
Iain: I m going to do your hair a little bit because it's very long and fat.

This one takes a bit of explaining. Sore of our favorite movie quotes come from Mr. Deeds with Adam Sandler. One of the characters, trying to get out of work, says in an over-the-top croaking voice, "Cough, cough. Deeds, I'm sick." So last week when Iain had his cough, I taught him to say that, so he could make Jeremy laugh with his cleverness. Iain added a hilarious voice, kind of between a croak and a growl, and now if anyone coughs, we hear the chirping, rasping voice say, "cough-cough-Deeds-I'm-sick" and then Iain waits with a grin for us to laugh, and we always oblige.

Tonight in the car, says Iain: Have to help me take off my thumb. (Iain pulls at thumb.)
Me: Why do you want to take off your thumb?
Iain: Because I don't like it.
Me: But I like your thumb.
Iain, wailing: But I don't LIKE it!

More to come, I promise!

I can think of two words to describe these Iainisms:

Aunt Haylee.

I love hearing all these cute little sayings! I can just picture him saying these things! How goes the book? Well, hope you guys have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Can hardly wait for the pictures of our nephews, hint, hint! Tell the boys and Jeremy hello from us!

I think Iain actually meant that our hair was long and PHAT (not fat) as in really, really cool.

It is so funny that you guys have him quoting Adam Sandler. Fitting too, I think I always expected your children to quote Mr. Deeds - but I thought it would be the "School is for fools!" quote first.

Miss you guys!
