With the elephants and Daddy.

One of the best things about Ace is that he's always making us laugh with crazy things. I have a hard time getting them on tape because he doesn't like it when a camera is pointed at him. (Most smiling photos are done with bribes. I told him I'd put the camera away for the smile below.)
So while we ate lunch yesterday, I camouflaged the camera with some bags of chips. It worked and got him singing "Twinkle, Twinkle." Notice, he gets distracted at the end, worried that Hula's going to get his food!
I gave birth to a lion. He loves to roar.
Oh my "Acey" we love you so.

Aunt Hilary found a place close by our house where the kids can ride miniature trains. Ace loves locomotives so we HAD to go. Indulge me all of the photos...we waited in line for an entire hour (with 5 kids 3 and under) so I had plenty of opportunity to document our experience.

I have been so frustrated lately because I've had so much trouble uploading videos to blogger (and they are always my favorite). Ace loves to watch himself and all the other kiddos whenever their mommies upload videos. I think my clips have been too long. So this one is short.
He is singing "Itsy Bitsy Spider."
What is so funny about his singing is that he breaks into song at ANY time. Yesterday at Bed Bath and Beyond I let him bring his play microphone into the store and he sang into that thing as if it were the American Idol finale. He couldn't carry a tune in a bucket (takes after his mom) but he had an audience and loved it. The lady behind me just listened with rapt attention. He just kept right on serenading her after he discovered he had her attention.
It's really hard most of the time to tell what he is singing. He never knows all of the words and makes most of them up. He's an entertainer. I wish the video were longer.

The thing I love MOST about my Ace is his happy personality. Jonathan and I aren't the only ones who are so surprised at how HAPPY he is, all of the time. The second thing I love most is his ever-growing vocabulary. I was dropping him off at Nana's house the other day and one of the mom's was coming up the stairs and said, "Oh. You're Ace's mom? We are hoping he will teach Peyton to talk." Peyton is older than Ace!
Sometimes you must know Ace's code language though. This will help...
Thank goodness for McDonald's happy meal toys.

This is Brookelyn's McDonald's toy! Ace stole it because he loves Kung Fu Panda. Sorry Brookelyn but Ace even sleeps with it.
(Side note: "Ba-look-a-lyn" is how Ace pronounces her name)
I think this came from Kung Fu Panda but I have no idea how it attached to this monster truck.
