Sufferin' Succotash

Last week my mom found great humor in pointing out that Evan says "yes" with a sort of sloppy lisp.  He also says the letter "S" the same way.  If you remember Sylvester the Cat from Looney Tunes then you know exactly what I'm trying to describe.  It more or less sounds like he has a collection of spit in the back of his mouth. Which is why my mom called out "sufferin succotash" over and over and over again.  It was her effort to poke fun, but to also get a reaction out of Evan.  And, not surprisingly, it worked.

He thought the expression was absolutely hilarious - so hilarious that he made every attempt to repeat it.  Now having practiced it for a few days he has it down pretty well.  He decided to drop the "sufferin'" part and just go with "succotash."  The funniest part about it is that he naturally has the lisp sound down perfectly.

Yesterday morning Robert and I overheard Evan downstairs in his crib going back and forth between "succotash" and his other favorite expression, "yay-ya."  I have a feeling he's gonna be one of those kids that can be told to say anything - could get dangerous.

In baby news, I'm pretty sure I'm starting to feel movement.  What is referred to as quickening is what I'm most likely feeling.  It's a fluttering sensation that sometimes feels like popcorn popping.  It could also just be gas.  My stomach has been bubbling the entire pregnancy - I'm sure you all wanted to know that, but it is a natural part of pregnancy.  Among many other disturbing things.

I have had several requests for an updated belly shot.  Amanda is coming up tomorrow so I will have her take one so I can avoid my infamous mirror shots.  Robert will be leaving me tomorrow for an entire week.  He's heading up to Georgetown to get some things done at the restaurant.  Updates on all of that soon.
