Dear Asher: 23 Months

Dear Asher,

Happy 23 months! Oh my gosh, you're so cute! This is my favorite age. You're absolutely adorable, and your tantrums are completely manageable. Ha!

This month we had a great visit to Florida to see our family. You love your babushka, dedushka, and Aunt Amy. We did something new this trip and drove to the Everglades to see alligators and a bunch of other cool animals. You are really interested in bugs, which makes daddy happy. You even held a baby crocodile with me!

We also got to visit with Uncle Shlomo, Aunt Sara, and cousin Avi. You have a ton of energy, so getting you to sit still during a long dinner is hard, but you charmed all the dinner guests with your adorable smile.

Your language skills continue to develop. You are regularly using two, and sometimes three-word sentences. Your favorite words seem to be "napkin" (and "sticky" when your hands are dirty), "trash" (when you find items on the ground that need to be thrown away, e.g., food crumbs), and "bread."

This month we took you to a tea party with my co-workers. Zahara was in Florida still and it was just the three of us. I wanted to get a babysitter so daddy and I could go to this fancy party, but it was father's day so we couldn't find a sitter. Bringing you was so fun though! You were hilarious and it was such a pleasure showing you off to my colleagues.

I can't believe next month you'll be two! Keep being your adorable, amazing self. We love you to the moon and back!

June Thoughts by Z

Zahara is filled with amazing witticisms and insights. She says so many interesting things that it's hard to capture them all. Moving forward though, I'm going to post these thoughts less frequently. I'm thinking quarterly? Not sure yet. Feel free to share some of your favorite thoughts from Z, or your kids too!

Thought 1:
Dan putting on sunscreen.
Z (sarcastically): Hey daddy, is it Halloween? Don't make me ghostly. Rub the sunscreen in.

Thought 2:
Z:Daddy, what does this say?
D: Girls rule.
Z: Right. Because mummy and I have all the rules and you and Asher follow them.

Thought 3:
Z: I only want to marry Asher when I grow up because I can't find anyone else I want to marry.
