it must be a boy thing....

Zane has started playing with his toys differently. And I think it must be a boy thing. It's like he's rough housing with his toys. Well, see for yourself....

First, he stands up in front of the toy....

Then, he pulls on the toy as hard as he can. He usually grunts &/or whines during this step of the process...............

Then, he falls backwards.....
And pulls the toy on top of him. (i have no idea why this is underlining, but i can't figure out how to make it stop, so we're going with it....)
He does this over and over again! I don't think this is the way little girls play with their toys, but maybe I'm wrong?

Another "boy" thing he loves to do is "punch" Matt in the face. Matt overreacts, yells "OOOHHHH", and stumbles backwards. Zane thinks it's just the most fun game he's ever played. He "punched" Papa Skeet all the way out the door when he was leaving for work!

Zane has learned a new talent, which we both thought was HILARIOUS! Kind of regretting the 'star on your head' song I was singing to him. But it's worth it just to listen to Z laughing in this video. And he kind of reminds me of the walrus that balances the beach ball on its nose. I'm just saying, you know, if he doesn't get drafted into Major League Baseball, or med school doesn't work out, he could always join the circus....but, then again, Matt is scared of clowns.

Oh I could eat him with a spoon he is so cute! Some thoughts: That action is definitely a boy thing. Love those Nick and Nora jammies. I had the underlining issue the other day and have no idea why. And I love the new trick!

Yes, it is a boy thing, and it only gets WORSE!!! Maddox is obsessed with being a football player and tackling EVERYTHING....me, his 1 year old brother, his toys, pillows, even his granmommy! He's a wild man!

Now that is raw talent, right there. You need to get that boy an agent! William plays rough too-his latest is chasing Ernie around the house all day trying to tackle him. I'm already refereeing-just wait till there are 2 boys, huh?

I love "Star on your Head." Great song! And the trick is similar to Rowdy's "leave it" trick... But Rowdy doesn't follow it up with a cute laugh! So Zane's trick is way better!! The cutest little laugh!!!! Can't wait to see that guy again!
And just to make you feel better: Pierce likes to bang things with big sticks, including Chloe. He also loves to tackle London. He hangs on until she goes down! It must only get better!
