Lil' Kc is getting pretty good in expressing himself. Not so much in words yet, but definitely in his actions.
Whenever his cup is empty, he usually comes up to me and hands it over. He then walks up to the kitchen and while doing so, looks over his shoulder if I am tagging along.
When I am not quick enough, he gestures with his little arm as a sign, meaning "Come on". He stops in front of the fridge, opens it and waits till I get out his juice. All this is his way of asking for a refill.
The other day, much to our surprise, he walked up to Opa and handed him his empty cup. Opa didn't get it right away. Not even when lil' Kc walked up to the fridge and gestured. I told Opa, his grand son was asking for a refill, but I didn't have to.
Apparently, it took a bit too long to suit our little rascal. He looked at Opa and said loud and clear: "Empy!" There was nothing to misunderstanding about that and he got his refill.
He sure has got his way of expressing himself. And of wrapping us around his cute little finger! :-)
At times, there is one fire after another, taking my energy and leaving me drained. My cup is empty, so to speak. God is gracious and merciful and all I have to do, is hand him my empty cup and ask for a refill.
He does more then just fill it up. He makes it run over. :-)
