Is it Funny??

D's new phrase... "Is it funny?" Been going strong for at least a week now. Not quite sure where he got it from - either from us telling him he's not funny when he's doing something naughty (like spitting out his food) - or he's just now getting to the point where he recognizes when something is funny in a cartoon. He just started laughing at certain points in his favorite cartoons - like when Dorie starts talking Whale in Finding Nemo (I think that was the first time I heard him laugh at a cartoon)...

Anyway, his new phrase is getting quite annoying. Imagine this: 8+ hour trip of "Is it funny? Is it funny? Is it funny? Is it funny?" He would just be giving it up after a 20 minute stint when someone would laugh, which would renew his interest in the phrase and he'd be on it again for another 20.... then he'd forget about it until he spit out his cookie or squirted his juice... "Is it funny? Is it funny? Is it funny?"

I do think he's really testing out the concept. When he laughs at the tv he will turn and ask "Is it funny?" When we got stranded in a motel in Iowa this weekend he was messing around with the dresser, hiding his cars in the drawers and such and finally pinched his poor fingers in a drawer. My husband asked him "Is it funny?" The poor little guy shook his head and said "No, not funny!"
