I Scream for Ice Cream

19 06 2007

Alex only knows a few words. Right now, his vocabulary is “Dawg” (where the “g” is silent), “bye,” and “uh-oh.” But even with that limited vocabulary, he knows how to ask for things he wants.

Take ice cream, for example.

While in South Hill, we took Alex to get soft-serve ice cream. He liked to eat from Grandmom’s cone. (Grandmom will probably point out that I didn’t really offer Alex my cone. But I’ve learned from my experience with donuts and other pastries that once you offer Alex some of your food, you don’t have much left for yourself.)

Here’s Alex asking for ice cream. Do you understand what he means?

Is That for Me?

What was even more fun is how Alex would be walking around 10 feet away from Grandmom, and then decide that he wanted more ice cream. So, he’d pop open his mouth, open wide, and run.

Just to make sure Grandmom understood what he wanted, he’d stand there with his mouth wide open when he got in front of her.

Where's My Ice Cream?

It worked.
