HUH? and the Hole

The past couple of days I have been working with Luke on asking "What?" instead of "HUH?" when he needs me to repeat something. I have NO IDEA where he learned "HUH" from?! His parents don't say it, I don't think I say it to him, etc. Today, he finally started to realize and catch himself before he said "HUH." I recognized this and praised his efforts, saying, "Good job, Luke, you didn't say 'HUH'!" He giggled, and with a huge grin on his face said, "HUH, Mare?" Is this kid funny or what?

Yesterday, we were walking into Barnes and Noble for story time when Luke fell flat on his face on the sidewalk. I mean this in the most literal sense. No hands, knees, or elbows broke his fall. The kid just busted. I quickly put Emme down and picked Luke up, worried he had broken the fall with his face, only to see huge tears streaming down his cheeks. An older lady, who witnessed the fall, walked over to Luke and told him she saw him fall so hard it knocked a big hole in the pavement. With those words, Luke's tears stopped immediately, he knelt down, and began searching for the hole he left in the pavement. Thankfully for me there was a large chunk of cement missing near where he landed and I quickly moved his attention in that direction. Even upon leaving an hour later (after story time) he proudly showed his friend, Annalise, where the hole is the pavement was.
