Zach cutenesses: He can hum, and we can recognize the tune! * He also enjoys music class with Mrs. Tara Smith - participating quite fully! * Zach recognizes a number of vehicles, in addition to FedEx, UPS & Schneider - Jeep, Audi, Numbercedes :=) , Beetle & 'mailman' trucks. (He is his father's son, after all . . .) * Zach 'smashes' Daddy, Daddy says, "Someone smashed me!" Zach replies, "That was me!" :=) * "Spin your almonds around five times, then put them in your mouth." (ok, . . .) * "I put some holes in Daddy's (pretend/flour-and-spices) birthday cake, so he can see the basement." (...Oh?) * For a time, Mr. Zach liked to get out of the racecar shopping cart, at the Giant supermarket, and "do silly things" - twirl, shake his head, land on the floor.. . "Want to do another silly thing, Mommy?" * "Do you want my pretend instrument, Mommy?" "Yes, thank you! What kind of instrument is it? How do I play it?" (Strumming motion with both hands at tummy) "It's like a tambourine, but it's a... a turtle instrument." :=) * "Pop-pickle" = popsicle; "punkping" = pumpkin; "mapmeng" = napkin * "Let's go to that kind of (pretend) fair. It's a rectangle fair." (...If you say so!) * To toy cow in tractor with farmer, after zooming it around on the floor causing cow to fall out: "It's ok, cow, the farmer was just driving fast. It's a fast ride. Are you ok, cow? The farmer didn't mean to throw you." * To McQueen (racecar) sticker on note pad: "I have to eat my broccoli, then sit on the potty, then get ready for nap. Ok, McQueen? Ok." :=>

Woah! I just realized that we don't have an "I'm 3 years old" chair shot! :=O I'll get right on that.

Stay tuned...
