Recently Wesley began using possessives.  That is Mommy’s food or baby’s milk or daddy’s shoes.  Being the ever thinking little guy that he is he figured out how to say that something was his.  He generalized “add an apostrophe ‘S’” onto the end of words to indicates who owns them.  Okay, so he probably didn’t think to himself apostrophe “S”, but he did see the pattern.  And being a good scientist he generalized to other situations.  Unfortunately for him this is English and the only patterns that do exist are really just meant to clearly indicate those people for whom English is a second language.

Me + apostrophe “S”  = Me’s.  Me’s shoes.  Me’s milk.  Me’s daddy.  Me’s shirt.

I felt I had to write this quickly while this is still absolutely the cutest thing I’ve ever heard.  I’m not naive enough to think that this will be fun forever.  I know that in no time at all we’ll be hearing Wesley scream: “Mine. Mine. Mine. MIIIIIIIINE!!!!”.  This should occur about the same time Jillian is able to grab things and put them in her mouth.  For now I’m just enjoying me’s kid.
