I'm Learning to Speak Boy

I'm quietly sitting in the living room and Nye (9 months) is playing in the play kitchen in the adjacent room.  I hear a small gagging noise, but don't run over right away because Nye usually chokes up whatever it is on the first gag or so. However, I do keep an ear out for any more sounds that might indicate there's a problem.

The first gag is soon followed by a host of choking and gagging noises.  Something's very, very wrong.  My heart's skipping beats as I jump up and sprint over to Nye to see if I can help him or save him or whatever!

Nye's peacefully sitting there, calm as can be, smiling at me, chewing on a cast iron play pan, and practicing a horrible gagging noise.  He's very proud of his new noise.  Oh boy!  BOY!!!
