What Hike Likes: Saying Yellow

March 28, 2011 § 2 Comments

The narrow-minded among us might say yellow is a color. But Hike would encourage you to think in broader terms. Here are a few of the things Hiram has asserted to be “yellow” in the past week:

  • All colors (especially blue, red, black and green)
  • Graham crackers (tan)
  • Legos (all colors including yellow!)
  • The area where we hang our coats and bags (no, or very little, actual yellow)
  • A stack of papers stuck into the pocket on the back of the car seat (mainly white)
  • His sled (blue)

At one point, Brad raised concerns about Hiram being colorblind. But I think it’s too early to worry about this. I think he just likes saying “yellow.”

    I’ve heard of other little ones doing the same thing (referring to all things as one color.) However, if Brad wants a little more reassurance, he could try some color recognition games, like pulling out one of Hiram’s blue toy boxes and asking him to put in all the legos that match the color of that box. Or asking him to show you which marker or crayon matches the color of something else in the house. But honestly, I’d be more likely to agree with you, Hadley. I think he probably just loves saying the word “yellow.” And who can blame him? It’s certainly more fun to say than red or blue, and I’m sure the way he pronounces it is adorable! 🙂

    Katherine calls most things purple or orange when asked a color. She loves purple and orange. She takes after me with the purple!
