  • Salty sea

    We went to the beach today for the first time this season. Evan went into the water and was very interested in drinking the water. I suppose he liked the salty taste of the water. On the way home, we asked him if he liked the water because it tasted like salt and he said […]

  • Dog food

    I wonder where Evan learns these words? We asked Evan if he likes his chicken at dinner, and he held up a piece and said “like dog food!” Where does he get these things?
