Some cute Zach-isms:

- He witnessed his first fireworks show, July 4th in Abington! He covered his ears the whole time - even if only from the din of the crowd - but he thoroughly enjoyed watching them... And proceeds to 're-enact' watching fireworks repeatedly in his make-believe play!

- "pregment" = pregnant; "skwuhlow" = squirrel; "instension cord" = extension cord; "intricity" = electricity

- Zach is introduced to the wonderful world of read-along books on cassette or vinyl - and has been given his very own record player - he's in heaven! (And Daddy & Mommy are in "Red Riding Hood" and "Three Little Pigs" hell! :=D Just kidding.)

- Zach to Mommy as she carries the inflated double-sized air mattress down the basement stairs: "That's pretty big! I'll grant you that!"

- "I'm a robot. I need some more intricity."

- "I want to play, after supper! I want to go spelunking (in our play cave)!" :=D

- Daddy to Zach: "You're an agitator!" Zach in reply: "What? No, I'm a carboholic!" :=D

- "Why are they called 'sandals'? Are they meant to go in the sand?"
