nicolai has started singing the abc's on his own, all the way through.
he is taking swimming lessons, which he cries and whines about, but once there and we're all in the water (cousins take, too, so aunties/mamas are in the water) he mostly goes right along with the lesson...scaring his aunt with how long he keeps his face under.
then he proclaims, "i like a seal".
he plays in the backyard on his own going between the sandbox and a dirt patch under the big tree.
he loves trucks and construction equipment.
at times he is quite opinionated about what he wears.
his favorite shirt lately has a backhoe loader on it.
