Chew! Chew!

Like most 2 year olds learning to talk, the boys are repeating everything we say, especially common phrases like “be careful!” “What do you say?” and “Are you ok?”
We say this last phrase quite a bit, especially after the boys cough. The tend to cough quite a bit at dinner where there is a great temptation to stuff all of one’s food in one’s mouth at once. Of course, the result is coughing. After the familiar, “Are you ok?” the next command given is “Chew your food!” or simply “Chew! Chew!”
The other night Aaron was laying with Micah before he went to sleep. Aaron got a tickle in this throat and started coughing. Usually Micah, our sweet sensitive son, will ask, “Are you ok?” But this time he told Daddy, “Chew! Chew!!”
