Micah is seventeen months old now, and he is really getting to be a lot of fun! He is starting to try doing goofy things for attention, especially making funny sounds. Fortunately for him, he has audience with a three-year-old who finds his antics quite humorous. Micah follows directions well and seems pleased with himself if he can do what I ask of him. For example, the other day I announced that we were going to go outside and play. He immediately walked over and pulled down the tub where I keep the sunscreen so that I could spray his arms before going outside. Smarty-pants! I am also enjoying watching him learn to run.

Yesterday I woke up ridiculously early and went for a six-mile run. I had time to shower, pack lunches, and make breakfast before waking the boys up at 8:00. Since they no longer needed to go with me on a standard mid-morning run, I decided to take them to Northwest Trek.
After the tram tour, we had a picnic lunch. Then we wandered through the last of the animal exhibits. In the above shot, they were watching a pair of river otters. Below, this beaver stopped and interacted with each boy. He swam by a few times, then he stopped in front of one of them and bobbed his head in and out of the water several times before swimming away again. It was so funny!
Yesterday Micah also decided that this school bus toy is his new recliner. For thirty minutes he would stand up, fetch a book, sit back down, read it, and repeat. Adorable!
