1. He likes to point out the moon in the sky during the day. I think Spencer told him what it was once and he just latched on to the idea.
2. Whenever he eats something he likes, he says it der-icious. Other pleasing things are considered fabuwous (wonder where he got that one:P).
3. Ezra loves horses. Granddad's horses aren't actually Granddad's horses anymore. Ezra calls them his horses and even knows them by name and sight. Lucy, Fox (although that one sounds like a swear word when he says it:P), Jack, and Jill.
4. He's caught onto the expression, "I got an idea!" The funny thing is he thinks that statement is an end unto itself. No need to follow up with an actual idea, Ezra just likes to inform us he has one.
5. Ez'll steal Georgia's socks and hide them, just so he can walk around looking in different places and saying, "Nope! Not here!" After an appropriate length of time looking for said sock, he discovers it and does a little marching dance.
6. He made up a song today while waiting for me to make his chicken nuggets. It went something like this: Chicken Nuggets/Chicken Nuggets!/They're coming/They're coming!/(grand finale) Chicken Nuggets are COMING!!
7. Whenever we practice him turning down food, Ezra says, "No thank you, I'm allergic. I'm allergic to milk, nuts, and girls." (ok, this one might have been fed to him, but it's still hilarious to hear him say it)
8. You sing Ezra a song maybe three times and he'll remember it and be able to sing along with you. He loves any kind of song-primary songs, hymns, nursery rhymes, theme songs (Broccoli/Celery/Gotta be...Veggie Tales!) and his own made-up songs (refer to #6). We discovered he knew all of How Great Thou Art the other day (or, as he likes to say, "how gweat thou waart"). It's not a song we sing real often, but somehow Ez had picked it up. I'm still trying to get him to sing it for the camera and when I do, ya'll will be the first to see it.
9. Presently, Ezra has a swollen and bruised eye from a bump against our foot rest, a small blood blister on his finger, and a dying, light gray front tooth. Yep, he's that active.
10. He knows how to work our entire DVD player. He can turn it on, open it, switch out the DVDs, close it, and push play. Ez does this all by standing on my glider footrest (and no, it is not stable, hence the eye mishap). Oddly enough, he hasn't figured out how to change the channels on the TV to get to the one where the movie will show up. When he gets that one, we're in real trouble. Then again, with his mischievous grin and those baby blues, I'm beginning to think we already are...
