My son turns 2 next month, and while I'm not anxious for him to grow up too fast (it's already happening), I can't wait to play games with him. So these are games that relate to stuff he's done or said, with interesting-to-me-ancedotes.

I'll be updating this as I think of things, and as he does more crazy stuff.

He's been counting to 10 for a while now, but he recently picked up a few more numbers. Now he adds, "18, 19, Tummy!!"

So I started this thing where, whenever he's stripped down to his diaper, I yell, "SUMO!" and start squatting down, putting my arms out to the side, and then clapping them together, followed by some sumo stomping. He imitates me as best he can, and it's a crack-up.

One of the first gifts he ever got was a stuffed Incredible Hulk teether from his cousins. Well he recently "discovered" it again, but for some reason, instead of saying Hulk, he pronounces it exactly like a certain 4-letter word. Now he walks around the house dropping F-bombs. We've tried to get him to pronounce it correctly, but it's been ingrained.

I'm usually the one who gets him when he wakes up in the morning. So I pick him up to take him in to see Mommy, but we can't leave without picking up "piddow," "banket," "Lellow Dog," and "TurtleDuffy." So I'm walking around the house with the 5 of them, barely able to see where I'm going. One day soon I'm going to long for those days back...

He has a strange relationship with dogs: He loves them when they're around, but when they get too close, he freaks out. But then when they move off, he's back to calling to them, throwing a ball to them, and so on. Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

My son is almost exactly as old as my discovery of Euros. In fact, on the day he was born I ran home from the hospital to pick up a few things forgotten in the panic of the morning, and I found a package waiting for me on the doorstep. It was my first order: Bohnanza, Pirate's Cove, and Goa.

We live in somewhat-rural Colorado, and often pass cows and farmlands as we travel around. He knows where there should be cows, by now, but if they're in another part of the pasture he starts calling to them from the back seat. "Coooows! Yoohoooo..."
Then when he spots one he says, "Found 'em...yaaaaaay!!!" and claps furiously.

The other day we were sitting around and I started belting out, "When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie..." and I left it hanging for my wife to finish. My son yells out "That's tamale!"

The scariest part of this is that he's heard the song exactly one time, and it was on in the other room while he was playing in his room. He's a sponge.

He's become very interested in the titles of songs that come on the radio. He always wants to know what they are, and then waits patiently for the singer to say those words.

So one day we were listening to Johnny Cash's version of Tom Waits' "Down There by the Train." He asked the details, and I told him it was Johnny Cash and the name of the song.

A few days later he's riding around with my wife, and she's got a different Johnny Cash CD playing, and she hasn't said a word about who's singing. Out of the blue he yells out, "This is Johnny Cash! Can you turn on 'Down Dere by the Train,' Mommy?"

Since she wasn't in the car that first time, she has no idea what he's talking about, she just knows that her 2-year-old knows Johnny Cash's voice. surprise
