Timothy has been working on making the "z" sound. It's really cute because he can't seem to make the sound to start a word, so he says "bezh-bezha" for "zebra" and "bizhau" for "zip up".

"Ah Tyooo"

Timothy said "I love you" (which sounds like "ah tyoo") to each of us, unprompted, for the first time yesterday! He's said it before, but only after we've said it to him. We were getting him into his jammies and he was sitting up on the changing table. He turned to Billy and made a kissing motion and said "Ah tyoo" and then turned to me and did the same. Ahhh! My heart just melted!

Angie, Ryan and mapah came up to visit on Saturday and went trick-or-treating with us. And the little Dino had the trick-or-treating thing down pat from our Halloween walk the previous day. Watch the little pro in action!

Forever Young Halloween Walk

Every year, the preschool does a Halloween walk around the neighborhood. The kids dress up in their costumes and the parents come and we all walk to different businesses in the area and trick or treat. When it's all over with, we go back to the preschool for snacks. Timothy had a blast! After our second stop, he figured out that he was going to get something every time we stopped. So he decided he wanted to run in between stops, and to bypass all of his friends who were patiently waiting their turn. Once we got the whole waiting thing down, he was so cute - at every stop he said, "Tee-tee (trick-or-treat), ta-tyoo (thank you), buh-bye!"

This is what I saw when I got to the infant center to get him in his costume:

Carving Pumpkins

We had lots of fun carving pumpkins this year! I think it's even more fun now as a parent than it ever was as a kid. Well, maybe... :)
