everybody's talking

As we approach the 2.5 year milestone, Cassidy is getting more and more verbal every day. He's very chatty now, and loves to repeat phrases he hears. He'll often repeat whole sections of a book to us from memory, which is pretty amazing - granted, he's heard them quite a few times. Still, it's wild to be driving in the car with him, pass a tree, and have him recite the first pages of Spooky Old Tree.

Otherwise, it's business as usual for our little bear. He's developing an appreciation for sunglasses and Sesame Street, and continues to be fond of tickling, reading, swings, and the occasional nap.
