This morning when I was getting dressed Dex was in his room reading a book. I went in to check on him, sneaked in behind him when he was reading "Hippos Go Berserk." He was standing in his room flipping through the pages. And then I listened. And heard:
Ooooh ippos. Phone. Boo phone. Dae-dow phone.
Eeeee ippos. Door.
Ive ippos. Ate (cake)
And then he gets to the middle pages. And he doesn't really know any words there, so he searches for pictures of things he knows.
Turn the page.
And then he continues:
Eight ippos. Boo bus (blue bus)
Oooo ippos. Aaaa-pane (air plane. It's really a helicopter, but who am I to correct the boy)
Un ippo. Phone.
And then he saw me. And then guess who got to read the Hippo Book...
Could he be any cuter?
