Garrett is five and, when at home, talks nonstop. This is sometimes still surprising to me because he didn't talk until he was three. I know, I know, this isn't really late at all, especially for a boy, but when your first child could hold a conversation with you at 18 months, three seems to be a bit late. I say he talks nonstop while at home because he is really shy when out in public. He refused to answer his teacher for the first semester of prekindergarten. He is just now talking in small groups and still doesn't answer when the whole class is together on the carpet.
Anyway, Garrett is saying some really cute things right now.

He is also very independent about brushing his teeth and combing his hair. I told him his friend was coming over today and he went straight to the bathroom and combed his hair.
Did I mention he's also throwing fits when things don't go his way lately? I mean drop on the floor, kicking and screaming. Sometimes, like right now, they are over instantly, and sometimes they seem to last forever.
