“Just Elliott Keene Welch”

So this all started one day when Elliott and I were cruising the aisles at Target.  He was hopping up and down in the cart acting silly as usual.

Me: “You’re a silly goose!”

Elliott: “I not silwy goose!”

Me: “Then, are you a goofy turkey?”

Elliott: “I not goofy turkey!!”

Me: “Then are you a chicken lips?”

Elliott: “I not chicken wips?”

…and the conversation continued like this for a few minutes…

Me:  “Then, what are you?”


Me:  (laughing) “That’s right, baby, and you’re perfect just the way you are.”

I thought, and we still do, think it’s just about one of the cutest things he’s ever come up with on his own.  We play this game with him often now and we managed to capture it on video.  He usually responds by repeating the phrase back to us, which we find hilarious, but he didn’t do that in this clip.

And just for the record, baby, you are a silly goose, and you are Elliott Keene Welch, too.  You can’t have one without the other!

Oh, and clearly we eat way too much Panda Express and Pei Wei around here!



  1. That’s so funny.

  2. That is SO stinking Cute! What a smart sweetie he is.
