Fishing for Compliments

Ahh...self praising starts early around here. Today Ethan was playing with an empty water diet coke bottle or otherwise known around here as 'Daddy's bot-tle'. After a few tries and where he muttered 'amost' when the cap screwed on wonky he finally got the cap to screw on correctly then exclaimed:

E: Goodjob! (He says it like one word)
Me: Good job? Who did a good job?
E: Et-tan good job
Me: Oh...You put the cap back on! Good job Ethan!
E: Yay!

A few moments then:

E: Et-tan good boy.

  1. Cutest story EVER!! I love it, love it, love it! Sooooo cute! I think it is great when they recognize a good job. Part of that becomes their internal "cheerleader" I think, which then might develop into self-confidence etc. I love it when Katie proudly says "Goo job, Katie!" when she does something. You gotta get this on video sometime and post it! Speaking of posting videos, when do we get a video of Ethan talking? I am so curious what his cute little voice sounds like saying all these amazingly advanced things! :)
