Item 1: On a balmy November day a few weeks ago, we took off to the zoo, where Nikolai asked me to take a picture of him in front of a statue and then promptly got distracted.
Item 2: We were having a family game night and managed to capture perfectly three hallmarks of having a three year old, those things being:
1) Sulking/throwing a fit when not getting his way
2) Playing, being sweet and saying silly things
3) Picking his nose
