Ethan is becoming more and more sociable now. If he was a shy little boy previously, fearful of strangers and people he meets, there is absolutely no indication of that shy trait at all now. He is gaining confidence every single day and his friendliness is so very contagious.
Someday I know I will look back at these short conversations he has and laugh about it. I know I already am… 😛
In the elevator when someone else enters it with us
Ethan (to the other person): Hi!
While out and about
Ethan (to everyone he sees): Hi! (while waving his arm)
At the grocery store
(Fish seller doesn’t respond because he doesn’t hear Ethan)
Ethan (louder, and waving his hand): Hi!
Fish seller: Oh hi! I didn’t hear you!
Ethan (proudly to me): I said Hi!
Me: Yeah, I know you said hi, darlin’.
At the supermarket checkout
Ethan (to lady behind us): Hi!
Lady: Hi sweetie!
Ethan: What you doin’?
Lady: I”m shopping. What you doin’?
Ethan: Go to mite house (He says “mite” when he means “my”)
(So now he’s inviting people to our house???!!!)
At the playground
Ethan (to everyone): Hi!
Man in the park: Hi!
Ethan: Look at Riverdance! (and does the tapdancing stunt)
Ethan: Go to mite house! (smiles happily)
