Ivar has a way with words:
+He and Rory have a special bonding ritual sharing mandarin oranges right out of the can. Ivar calls them Mandaray Oranges.
+He calls chocolate Chlocklick
+He calls his step stool a Step Stoolul
+Stawberries are Strawbolies
+He says funny things like, "oh elsie, look at that smile!" and holds her chin
+And he was quoted saying, "I make the air poopie. I tooted!"
+His favorite nonsense word is saucy shooshoo
+A favorite pastime is to "play a game board!" Chutes and Ladders and Candy Land are favorites. In Candy Land, if a double red is drawn, your guy can pick any red place to land. Forward or back, there is no real end to that game. In Chutes and Ladders we let our guys play on the game board like a big playground. Again, no winning. Just playing. Up and down the slides, stopping for a snack by the girl who is stealing cookies out of the cookie jar, visiting the boy who is helping the kitty out of the tree.
+And just today I heard myself remind him, "Ivar, you cannot draw on your sister's feet."
