why zebby is soooo cute..

ok there are many reasons and many ways he is just too cute...not that I am biased in any way.
1. "Slow down, Zeb"...to him means run in a crazy slow motion way with his arms moving like Bill Cosby dancing and they move twice as fast as his feet...with his little grin...so funny. I wish I had some sort of video-ing technology because it is hysterical to see him do his little slow motion bionic man run with dancing Bill Cosby arms.
2. he loves food...he doesn't eat as umm....energetically as he used to ...but he is so excited about eating. I worked overtime on night and then was on call the next night so I hadn't seen him in almost 2 days and I walk in and he comes running over to me screaming MOmmy...mommy with a great big smile on his face...eyes aglow...and excitedly tells me (as if it is the most important thing in the world)..."I ate hotdogs.....and CHIPS...and CHIPS!". so funny.
3. He loves to pretend sneeze and if you pretend sneeze back to him....he loses it with giggles
4. sometimes he will randomly walk up to you and pull up his shirt and say "tickie tickie" wanting you to tickly his tummy.
5. he loves to pretend to read. he brough a newsprint store circular in the car and was holding it and looking at it like he was reading it...then he started ripping in apart...but he was all in on the reading thing...he even furrowed his little brow like he was deeply engrossed in the ad for the new Max Lucado Fearless book.
6. When he wakes up in the morning he starts singing at the top of his lungs...not because he is trying to wake us up to get him...but because he likes to sing.
7. the way he and lilianna hold hands in the car...their car seats are both in the rear seat of the van
8. before Ben moved into his room...the first thing he would say in the morning is "where's Ben?"
9. He loves to talk on the phone and pretend to talk on the phone....he will just put his hand up to his ear and start saying.."hello?....hello?" at increasing volume until someone puts their hand up to their ear and answers him
10. He has a strangely uncanny memory for places. We got him potato chips at a gas station once and the next time we pulled into the gas station he said "Chips?"..it was weird. The last time we pulled up to O's house to pick him up..he said "O...". the other night we took Lilianna and O to the skating rink to drop them off for a church youth function and when we went back to get them as soon as we pulled into the skating rink parking lot Zeb said "O..and Lilianna!" He is a genius what can I say!

Xander and Beckett have incredible memories too and Beckett does the pulling up his shirt thing... although it's less for tickles and more to show off his belly (I don't get it... but he thinks it's important!)

Zeb sounds like a cool kid :)

Oh yes, the memory! My daughter will tell say "this is the way to church" (or school or the ice cream store). Heck, I couldn't find my way around the block at 3 y.o.
