The other day Spud was sitting near me in the family room, playing with his toys. He said, "I know why dey are called finguhs [fingers] -- because dey hold fings!"
This "fing" fascination has been around for a while. For the longest time, whenever he was holding one thing (usually a toy car) and wanted a second (either another car or a water bottle), he would look in frustration at his hands and say, "I can't hold two FINGS!"
A couple of months ago, though, he had an epiphany. He was standing in the front hall, holding a toy car and he picked up his water bottle. He looked down at his hands and after a moment of reflection said, in a assured voice, "I can hold two fings." Then he carried on his merry way.
