As Parker continually improves his ability to speak English, he is beginning to ask more questions. He has recently began asking "Why?" to about anything he can. He is very inquisitive.
He also asked us if monkeys swing from trees in Indianapolis. Why did he pick Indianapolis? I am guessing because we were driving down a street with very large tress and happened to be in Indianapolis at the time.
He is dying for it to snow. Not a day goes by right now without him asking if it is going to snow tomorrow. The boy that can't seem to stand the cold when it dips below 70 at night, wants it to snow.
His Grandpa Pop asked him the other day if it got cold in Ethiopia and he responded with "Cold....little. Hot....BIG!". Pretty simple, yet accurate description of sub-Saharan Africa.
