It's the Little Things: Chatterbox, Running in Circles, & Rock Collecting

Ez is turning into such a quirky little character. He comes up with the funniest activities all on his own, like collecting anything and everything, one at a time, and sorting it all into a giant pile (shoes, rockes, dirt clods...). Also, if Joe or I happen to be sitting in the middle of the floor, he'll start doing laps around us. This has been going on for a few days now, and it's the funniest thing. He's so focused, and he winds up getting dizzy and making wobblier and wobblier circles. Seriously, where does he come up with this stuff? Of course I have to pull out my phone and video him when he starts going on his little psychotic episodes toddler frenzies. I don't usually do such video-heavy posts, but you know what they say - a video is worth a thousand pictures...or is it a video is worth a million words? Nobody says that? Ok, here's a bunch of videos anyway ;)

This is not the first time I've made a fool of myself in a public place for this kid, and something tells me it won't be my last. But really, the world would probably be a better place if we all just burst into spontaneous dance parties:

Last night, I was sitting on the sidewalk while Ez collected dirt clods, and all of a sudden he plops down next to me, with his back propped up against my legs, and starts telling me the longest most animated story. Oh how I wish I knew what he was saying. The end when he starts hamming it up for the camera cracks me up:

A little insight into Ez's collect & pile mentality:

Some park action:

Sorry bout the dark quality, but this one cracks me up. This was the second video we took of him just running in circles around me for several minutes at a time. At one point I asked him what he was doing, and then he just stared me down without skipping a beat in his circular path. What did I do for entertainment before this kid?

Linking up with Ashley & Jess for:


  1. I think you are missing a vid there. The chatterbox one is my fave though!!! I kind of miss the baby babble! Not that I ever understand everything Aria is saying now. Super duper cute. And, we are big fans of the spontaneous dance parties around here. I adore baby dance moves.

  2. Oh my word: too, too cute!!! Babytalk melts my heart....
