San Tozay: a really big building.
This was confusing for us, because he's obviously trying to say "San Jose." And we'd always hear, "I want to go in San Tozay," which we'd answer with various explanations about how we live *in* San Jose. It wasn't until I started hearing him say, "I want to go in *that* San Tozay," that I realized this just means a really big building, even ones in Oakland or San Francisco.
Odershirt: air conditioner?
I'm still not entirely sure what this means, but he tells me to turn it off when we park the car.
Dig Doy: big boy
We still have a hard time with bs and ps. But the reason I'm including this and not everything that has a b or a p in it is because of its extremely specific definition. For example, if Austin is pretending to fly in a rocket, we'll ask, "are you an astronaut?" To which he'll reply, "No, I'm a dig doy." If we press, "a big boy who is an astronaut?" he'll say, "No, I'm a regular dig doy." To date, dig doys are not pirates, astronauts, superheroes, fire fighters, police men...
"I want to knock it down to the ground"
We say this when we're really upset, about pretty much everything. Don't want this sandwich? "Just knock the sandwich over to the ground."
Mom giving you trouble? "Just knock Mom down to the ground."
Sun is up? "I want to knock the Sun down to the ground and break it and put it in the garbage can."
Excuse me: excuse me
He actually says this very well. It's the fact he says it while he bounces off people in crowds that's funny.
His favorite food is currently "hangurgers." He also told us the other day that cookies are best, followed by cake and then ice cream.
He has always liked puzzles, but now he's starting to put together more elaborate tracks for his trains and such. By himself! It's awesome to watch. He'll come run and get me to see his "triangle track" or his "circle track."

|He also builds his own vehicles out of legos. This is a train, naturally.|
Mom's radio is currently broken, so we're listening to one of our cds we made off our MP3 collection. It's got 150 songs on it and Austin has several favorites. And they now have new names for me to remember as well as the number of the song on the cd.
The Chumma song
The Up and Down song
The Rainbow song
We don't have this song, but if we're watching something on tv and we see this ad, it is required that we watch it about 40 times.
The Singo Dongo song
When it is time to go to bed, Austin has taken to telling us stories. This is one of them.
Amazing. I'm so proud of our little dude. Can't wait to see what's next :)
