Gabe has a lot to say.

While falling asleep just now, he chanted "ding ding ding ding fireman!" a couple of times. Now he is singing. For dinner we had quesadilla and guacamole, and he can say both of those words like a champ. Earlier this week he surprised me by asking the complete sentence "where did Daddy go?"

Gabe asks for books by name. His favorites include "Places You Go" (Oh the Places You'll Go), "Green Ham" (Green Eggs and Ham), "Lorax", "Truck Book", "Snowman Book", "Tiger book", "No David", and, his favorite, "Humperdink" (Hooper Humperdink: Not Him! By Dr. Seuss.) All books except for No David are, according to Gabe, "by Dr. Seuss". We haven't made our first real pilgrimage to a library, except for one stop at the library in the neighboring town, which, shockingly, turns out to be closed on weekends.

And now, on having been sidetracked while looking up the proper spelling of Seuss, I have learned all about the awesome Theo Geisel on Wikipedia.
