Our Andre boy

I decided to post some things that Andre does, as I am likely to forget them a couple of months down the road. One of Andre's talents that impresses both of us is his incredible memory. Example: yesterday we took a family stroll down Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade, while walking through one block of it Andre exclaimed: "Thomas, choo choo train". At first we couldn't figure out why he said it, but then while looking around we noticed clear on the other side of the street there was a toy store (it's not huge, and doesn't have flashy big signs like Toys'R'Us, the whole store front is about 3 door widths) which we previously visited at least a month ago where Andre got to play with Thomas toys. Only seeing it once before he was able to recall where it was and what he did there. Pretty impressive if you ask me.I don't know why, but Andre likes to line his toys - whether it be cars, animals or crayons - up in perfect order. Here, whe he saw me getting ready to take the picture of him, he had to make sure that all cars were 'looking' at me.
Andre loves his brother Harper, sometimes a little too much. He loves to make him laugh, and he is good at it.
He immitates us - this is how Andre came out a couple of nights ago. He decided he was done with his bath, so he climbed out of the tub on his own, reached the towel and wrapped it around his waist - just like his Daddy! What a silly guy!
