I have said before that it is impossible to put into words the love I have for Andrew, or for any of my three boys for that matter. Since I did Joey's six month post earlier today, I wanted to do a post for Andrew. I love everything about this little boy--his laugh, his smell, his fascination with smoke detectors, the way he puts his hands together to pray before each meal, the way he blows me a kiss when I am driving if he sees me looking at him through the rear view mirror, the way he cannot control himself when Mickey's Hotdog song comes on, and the list could continue forever. He is growing up so fast and developing such a personality.
He is picking up words left and right. I know that I will forget some, but here is a list off the top of my head. I will not list animal sounds since I did that in the zoo post.
- eat eat...and then puts himself in his booster
- boo boo and ow
- Paw Paw
- bump bump...when we are driving and hit a bump
- Tootles...from Mickey Mouse
- No No (with a finger shake, too:)
- cheese...when I am taking a picture
- whoa...when Joey was still shaky on sitting up and would topple over
He can also point to almost every body part when asked.
He still absolutely LOVES books. Reading is by far his favorite thing to do. He loves to crawl up in our laps with a book. He likes to hear the same stories over, and over, and OVER again. I can basically recite them all without even looking at the pages.

Joey was off for Memorial Day, everyone was finally healthy, and we wanted to find something fun to do. We decided to go to the zoo because Andrew really loves reading about animals in books. When reading books, he will:
- Say "woof woof" for a dog
- Roar and act like his hands are claws for both lions and tigers
- Pretend that he is smacking leaves with his mouth for giraffes
- Say "baa" for sheep
- Say "moo" for cows
- Say "cat" for cats
- Do his hands in the motion for "Roll Tide" for elephants, but he does not say anything
- Shake his head and say "neigh" for horses.
- Say "sssss" for snakes.
As we were driving to the zoo, I was hoping that he would not be scared of the animals and that he would be able to make the connection between what he had read in books and real life. Both of these things happened, and he LOVED the zoo. It was such an awesome day. Here are some pictures. Please excuse my boys' hair. I think that they have an entire bottle of sunscreen on, including all through their hair.

I had a wonderful second Mothers' Day. When I woke up that morning, Andrew brought me a card and wrapped present. Both boys also made me presents at school. Here is what Andrew made me.
