it's gotten to the point where i'm not quite sure if holden is imitating me or i'm imitating holden. the entire day, it's all mmmmm-hmmmms, yaaaaaaas, and ummmmmmms, around here in the exact same intonation and voice. i'm pretty sure between the two of us we use those three expressions more than a million times a day. it's like we've gotten addicted and the number of times we use each one seems to be increasing daily.
what i think initially started as holden imitating me turned into me imitating him back and now our responses to everything are identical.
it's funny the things you realize when you have a child - like the things you say and the way that you say them. hearing my voice come out of a little boy is sometimes hilarious, usually stopping me the first time it happens as i laugh wondering if that's what i sound like to other people.
