Late Night Talk

Sam has recently begun a new habit that Joy and I find hilarious: after we put him to bed, he'll talk for about 30 minutes before falling asleep. Alone, this behavior isn't too strange; after all, many parents report that their children talk themselves to sleep. What is interesting is that Sam seems to realize we can hear everything he says over the monitor, so he talks to us. A few choice excerpts:

"Mama, open the door please."

"Sam has a green bus and and blue bus and a red bus in his room."

and my personal favorite, playing off his pronoun confusion:

"Mama rock you."

How can you refrain from laughing out loud???

Thankfully we're downstairs listening through the monitor so we can be as loud as we want. But we do spend a good part of the evening laughing at whatever he comes up with.
