I found Ezra licking his Busy Town book the other day.
Me: What are you doing?
Ezra (heartbroken and sighing): This watermelon is pretend.

makes sense

Ezra calls furniture "furnichair" and it pretty much kills me.

yummy, yucky

Ezra's addition to the book Yummy, Yucky:
"Leaves in a bowl are yummy. Leaves in the grass are yucky."

Stevie Wonder makes Ezra think of roosters. Every time we hear a Stevie Wonder song he asks to see a rooster.

I have no idea.

Where's that baby?

He used to just put his hands over his eyes...

Conversation with a 28 month old

Me to Ezra: "You have to hold somebody's hand when you cross the road."
Ezra to me: "Holding Ezra's hand!"

good tip

Ezra handed a penny to his babysitter and said, "It's money. You can't stick it in your nose."

Double Q

Ezra was playing with his alphabet blocks, mostly building towers and knocking them down, he held up one and said, "It's a W!" Then he held up another and said, "It's a double Q!"

conversation with a 24 month old's doctor

Every time we go in for a check up Ezra's doctor she and I reminisce about how tiny he was when he was born, and how freaked out I was. And then, after a minute of talking about how tiny he was, she tells me how great he is doing. (Needless to say, I really like his doctor.)

At his 2 year check up he was in the 99th percentile for length and 75 for weight with a giant head. And this is a baby who wasn't even on the baby growth chart when he was born! (except his giant head. He looked like a lollipop.)

The doctor asked the routine questions, "does he eat his vegetables?" yes. "does he brush his teeth?" yes. "How is he sleeping?" pretty well, most of the time. Etc, etc.

And then she asked: "Does he go to school?"
Me: "Not yet."
Dr: "That's good. He'd just make all the other kids look bad."

Love that doctor.

Summing up what it is to be two

Ezra: "I want to do it all by myself with you."
