Evan started saying an entirely new word tonight, but we couldn’t figure out what it was… It sounded like “Goy” or “Coy” and he only says it when he holds a phone up to his ear. We just figured out what he was saying. It’s “Korey”, but when has he ever heard that word? We always refer to me as “Daddy.”
Dusty’s old cell phone, which she lost in November, had a voice dialing feature. You hold the phone normally, press a button, then speak the name of the person you want to call. Her new phone has that feature too, but she doesn’t know how to work it, so it’s been a couple of months since that’s happened. Today Dusty’s friend came over and brought her phone back- she’d found it in her car.
Evan immediately picked the old phone up and wandered around the room saying “Koy” in the rather deep tone of voice that Dusty used to voice dial. He doesn’t do that with other phones. He’s very smart… it just took his dumb parents a while to figure it out.
