"el eh opta?"

Any toddler translators out there know what my blogpost title means? :) Judah says this little word about 1,000,000x every day. And if we are in the back yard he says it even more often because he is always looking for an "el eh opta" in the sky...

usually followed up by the phrase "ed iiih go?" and if I say "no Judah, there is no 'el eh opta'" he then asks if there are any "ah pains" cause he loves him some "ah pains". And if I say "no Judah, there is no 'ah pain'" he then asks if there are any "cars"...well, you don't need a translator for that one. He says it clear as day over and over and over and over and over and over and over....and when I tell him that "yes Judah, there is a car" he gets super excited, claps and says "yay!" haha. I love it.

I admit, I think it is cute. I do get a little weary of it at times but he is just so serious about it all and really wants to know. Plus he can tell the difference between an "el eh opta" and an "ah pain" not only by what he sees but by the sounds they make. It is pretty cool.

Here is a series of photo's of him and you can pretty much imagine what he is saying by his face and expressions...



(can you see that bright red gum where his molar is pushing through? poor kid...it is taking forever...)

Meant to tell you that we live under a medical helicopter flight path. Chances are, there will be an el eh opta sighting while you're here. : )
