Bagel's latest words are "Sure," "Fine," and "diarrhea."

"Diarrhea" stems from a recent episode of same, only now he is calling any diaper-soiling action "diarrhea." It's just funny to see a perfectly healthy two-year-old gripping his diaper and saying "I got diarrhea!" with a crap-eating grin on his face.

"Sure" has its usual exclamational usage: "You want a cupcake, Bagel?" "Sure!"

The funniest one by far, though, is "Fine."

"Put water in gun."
"No, Bagel, you can't play with the squirt gun, it's dark and cold outside."
"Aaaaaaaah, wan' play outside wif gun!!"
"No, you can't."

and he stomps off.

I'm glad he's learning a way to cope with disappointment that doesn't involve biting his baby brother.
