Tory's been talking more and more these days and the things she says leave Andi and I in stitches. She very quickly went from saying one word phrases for quite some time to two and three word sentences and now basically repeats anything we say.
Here are a few "Tory-isms" lately:
(When something drops on the floor or doesn't go her way)
Tory: "Oh, man!"
Andi: "Tory, why did you do that?"
*... and the back-talk begins.
(Laying upside down)
Tory: "Up down!"
(Pretending to change her Minnie Mouse doll's diaper)
Tory [with much authority]: "Stop it, Minnie!"
*Minnie must have been wiggling around. Guess it's time to start watching what I say!
(Throwing a tantrum at the park because she wanted Mommy, not Daddy, to carry her)
Andi [trying to distract her from screaming]: "Tory, should we go home and eat dinner? Do you want a quesadilla?"
Tory [abruptly stops mid-scream]: "Dip, too?"
(Chloe the Dog, barking at the front door.)
Tory [running through the house crazily]: "Oh, no! Chloe get me!"
*everything is "get me" lately ... bugs, Daddy, Chloe
Tory [making a fake crying sound] "Tory crying!"
*no longer feels the need to actually cry; instead, fake cries and tells you she's doing so.
Tory [wrapping a dish towel around her back]: "Super!"
*When visiting my parents in Nebraska this past month, one day my dad put a dish towel around Tory's back and called her "super Tory." She hasn't forgot it.
Tory: "High five? BOOM."
*Andi taught her how to high five and to do "knucks" by bumping fists together. Now Tory always wants to do both, always followed by a "BOOM."
*"Cheers-ing" our cups together started at meal times, but has quickly escalated to include other objects ... silverware, toast, toys, etc.
