something to talk about

We made the journey over to the wilds of El Sobrante last weekend to pay a visit to Freya. She and Cassidy had fun racing around and playing with her vast array of toys.

Our little bear is really growing from a toddler into a child. The language explosion is pretty wild to watch - every day he has some new word or phrase to surprise us with. His memory is also amazing; he can recite passages from his favorite books, or go and grab them off the shelf if we throw out a memorable line. Soon he'll be repeating what we say, which means that Holly and I need to be a lot more vigilant about our potty mouths.

nice new outfit

Submitted for your approval, our son the fashion plate. Not surprisingly for those of you who've seen both Holly and I dress, he (wisely) takes his wardrobe cues from his mom.

Cassidy's life has a definite rhythm and constancy these days. He seems to do well with a routine, and has no problem doing the same thing over and over again. Some of the things he likes:

Lots of reading. "Green Eggs and Ham" is a new favorite, usually accompanied by his gleeful shouting of the title: "Green! Eggs! Haaammmm!"

He's very into doing flash cards of letters and shapes. (I promise, we're not drilling him here.) Some mornings he insists on doing this before having breakfast. He recognizes and can say all the letters, and can count to 20.

Balloons always get a big smile.

Feet are apparently something to be marveled at and displayed whenever possible.

Looking cute and modeling new jammies is a lot of fun.
