Lately he's been acting like a howler monkey. When Ike gets really upset (we put him in bed or take away something he's using as a weapon) he screams so loud it hurts our ears. His volume level is much more effective at getting his point across than his language skills right now. He actually speaks really well (mostly because of Zeb, I'm sure) but he always loves to shriek. Zeb accused him of being a 'screaming banshee' in the car yesterday. I use that phrase far too often referring to my children and they seem to have picked up on it.
Ike also loves to eat. His favorite food is now ketchup- which luckily can be put on ANYthing. He eats lots of black beans mixed with ketchup. It actually makes me dry heave a little. He also likes to dip bread, apples, pretzels, cheese, and carrots in it.
