This little boy likes to put things on his head. He also speaks very loudly (YELLS!!!), even when you are less than a foot away (he has no inside voice). He likes to tell guests BYE BYE!!!!! really loud even if they’ve just arrived to our home. He likes to bite toes of children who are sitting on the couch (who are barefoot.) When adults are sitting at the dining table, he likes to approach them from the back, lift up their shirt just slightly, and pinch their skin with his tiny sharp fingers. He likes to take ice cold baths. He constantly causes me little heart attacks from his accidents, such as falling down a flight of wooden stairs (while being watched over by grandpa), swallowing a toothpick (turned out it was a false alarm), and going to the next door neighbor’s house (yes, he did ring the doorbell- but I don’t know how! he’s not tall enough!)

My sweet baby is now 19 months old. He went from being a peanut to being a huge (HUGE!) off the charts kid. He loves to dance to anything with a good beat. He screams if the song on the radio is too slow or soft. He likes it LOUD and booming. He’s sitting in my lap right now all of a sudden. And now I have to go!!!

  • ice cold baths!!? Yikes! Sounds like a character, I love the pants on his head. Last year Jack loved throwing his underpants on the Christmas tree, it was strange and funny to see the up there at random times. Kids are funny.

  • It sounds like Z. is helping to create the warm, hospitable atmosphere one goes for as a host. You need your toes bitten? He’s at your service! You need a little pinch to stay awake? He’s your man!
