He's got skillz

Oh, I've just gotta share. It's like a switch flipped on with my Ezekiel. This has been a big week of achievements for him.
He's doing lots of new stuff, like:

  • waving bye-bye
  • clapping
  • playing catch with Daddy
  • singing "e-i-e-i-o" along with "Old McDonald"
  • saying "uh-oh" after he intentionally drops something
  • saying "uh-uh" when I tell him no or when he does something he's not supposed to
  • playing peek-a-boo with me behind the shower curtain
  • signing "all done" after a diaper change or meal
  • feeding himself with a fork
  • holding his breath when I practice taking him under water
  • climbing all the way up the stairs (been doing that for a while)
  • climbing on stools
  • climbing onto the coffee tables (how????)
  • dancing (kind of a knee-bounce)
  • playing the baby piano
