Swiper, No Swiping!

Evie crawled over to Jonah and reached out to touch the football he was playing with. Immediately, Jonah sprung into action. He jumped up and stuck his hand out. "Boppo, mo ba. Boppo mo ba! Boppo moooooh BA!!" He then stuck his elbow out to the side and swung his hand in front of his chest. "Ohhh Maya!" Then stuck his hands in the air and proclaimed "Yayyy! Bop Boppo!" He proceeded to walk to the other side of the room, and play with his ball without that pesky little thing they call sister.

Anyone who watches Nickelodeon with their kids might recognize this Jonah-speak. Jonah has been acting out the "Swiper the Fox" scene that occurs in EVERY SINGLE Dora the Explorer episode. Yes, EVERY SINGLE EPISODE. He will pretend that the dog or Evie are swiper. He has recently added "(gasp!) dee boppo??" Whenever one of them enters the room. (in the cartoon, they ask "Do you see swiper??") 

At least he is engaging in pretend play, right?
