The duck on the farm goes quack, quack, quack

Zachary is getting so smart! I'm sure every mother thinks this of their child of Zack's age. We have been learning animals and sounds lately. He knows if I say "duck," to make a beak with his hands and say "quack, quack, quack." This morning when we were in the bathroom I showed him his rubber duckie and asked him what it was. He grabbed it and responded with a "quack, quack, quack!" It was awesome. Usually David plays espionage games with the duck in the bath tub, so it's great to see him relating it to other things as well! He first did the hand and sound of the duck when we were reading his new "book of the week" at bedtime this past Friday. Going To Sleep On The Farm is a great book that goes through animals on the farm and how they go to sleep. It was a gift from a friend and one of my favorite books. When it says-And that's how a duck goes to sleep-quack, quack. That's how a duck goes to sleep. He started mimicking. It was great! I totally recommend it!

The last "new" thing Zachary is all about right now is sticking his magnet letters into the VCR. Really? We don't even use it. I'm not quite sure why we have it set up, really. He has never played with it before. Then, all of a sudden, on Sunday afternoon he started stuffing the letters in it. And, that is all he wants to do with the letters. And, he gets them in there!!
So, that is our update for Monday. New revelations, new books, and new quirks. Lots of things going on in Zachary's world!
