Zachary just learned how to snap. It was this awesome epiphany. He sort of pondered it, and we showed him a few times, and he sort of mushed his fingers together.

And then... SNAP. And we all look startled, and he cackled and clapped. And then did it again.

And again.

Sort of like magic.

[edit - to SNAP is to CLICK for our english readers]

Zachary was falling asleep tonight, and struggling to stay awake. He called me into his room.


(calm bedtime mom voice)

"Yes dear."

(tiny face pops up from pillow)


(Radiant grin followed by collapse onto pillow and snuggling down with comforter)

(and a snore)
