All Boy

Things he loves: trains, firetrucks, garbage trucks, sticks, rocks, throwing, hitting, punching, kicking, yelling, pushing, and of course, any discussion of poop or yucky things. He currently ends stories with "YUCK!" and cracks himself up. Hot chocolate, candy and cookies are also very high on his list.

Josiah talks nonstop and is often found without clothes on - even in public places or at fancy parties. It is very difficult to get his clothes back on him once he has started to undress.

He is fully in the "Why?" stage, which we really hope is just a stage - already been at least one full week with no signs of slowing. Everything, EVERY single statement that is made to him, is followed with: "Why?" and that response is followed with "Why?" and so on ad nauseum.

Despite being all boy, he still adores his big sister and wants to do all that she does, including be a ballerina (hallerina, as he says) complete with tights. He also loves to sing and dance (favorites are Jesus Loves Me, I'm Not Ashamed (aka Je-sus), Spoonful of Sugar, and Best of Both Worlds). Josiah also likes to have clips in his hair, but only for a few seconds at a time.
