Why, Yes...

Why, yes, Zeke is still somewhat, let's say, "particular", about how he plays with some of his toys. For example, when he "makes puzzles", as he calls it, he empties the pieces to five puzzles into a big pile and then puts all five together at once...


(By the way, I knew I was done taking these pictures when Zeke looked up at me, pointed to the camera and said, "Go upstairs.")

Or, when he plays "train tracks" now, he will start by lining up his train. Then he'll take a piece of track and lay it down in front of the train. Next, he moves the train onto that piece of track. He then continues along, laying down a piece of track, then moving the train the end of that piece. Lay down track, inch train along. Lay down track, move train along. And so on until it's complete...

Why, yes, Deacon is still a messy eater...


At least he's happy about it. Make no mistake, this young man's emotions are very much ruled by his belly. The emptier the belly, the grumpier and mopier the Dee Dee. The fuller the belly, the happier and livelier the Dee Dee.

Here's one more shot from that last picture so you can better grasp the force that is Deacon...


That's it. Take it in. Take it alllllll in. Sweet boy.
