"Harry" has smartly, and thankfully, now replaced "mine." Harry's more comfortable with his own name and is using it to more politely ask for things 'Harry' wants. It's really quite charming. Even better, he'll now uses other peoples names if he wants them to do something. For example, Harry seems fascinated with drinking water out of a bicycle water bottle, perhaps because I squeeze it a little when he does and that likely yields an interesting sensation. But, he's also interested in how I do it, opening my mouth and squirting the water inside. He's tried that method without much success, but rather than give up, he'll often say "wah-wah," then say "daddy," telling me he wants to see how I do it. Then, of course, he'll say "Harry" and want to do it himself.
