1) When Violet becomes frustrated or confused she says "OH NO! What should I doooo?"

2) Finnegan says "No" now. Very sincerely, with a head shake for good measure. It thus far has never bothered me when either child says no. I think it is impossibly cute.

3) Conversations with Finnegan:

Finn: Mama, mama, mama, mama, mama, mama, mama

Mama: Yes, Finnegan???!!

Finn: Hi, Mama.

4) Things Violet has apparently picked up from TV

"Great Job, Mama!" (making dinner or whatnot)
"Great counting, everybody"

5) I brought Violet home some underpants. Her response? "Oh thanks, Mama! Thanks a lot. They're so beauuuutiful. Beautiful socks."

6) When Violet becomes upset, she often asks for a pot (to throw up in). Which comes out like this "Need pot." To which Conor responds, "Yeah, me too, Violet." Violet doesn't actually then throw up in the pot. She spits in it, and then demands it be removed from her presence. Conor tried to pass off a bowl on her. To which she responded "That's a bowl." She's picky about where she spits I guess.
