Good manners are pretty important to me (probably because I grew up with a Korean mom and a dad from the south) and I've been trying to instill them in E. He has saying "thank you" and "please" down pretty well so now I'm trying to teach him how to introduce himself.
This morning it kind of seemed to click. During breakfast he looked me in the eye and announced, "Hi! I'm eeeott!" I praised him effusively and he beamed.
But my parental pride promptly dissolved into giggles when he continued on: "Hi, I'm Mama!...Hi, I'm cereal!...Hi, I'm milk!...Hi, I'm bowl!...Hi, I'm chair!..."
