At the beginning of this week, we made a very important decision. We decided to remove the DVD player from the back of the car. This means that Rowan now has to rely on the scenery outside and the conversations inside the car for entertainment as we drive about.

I am so glad we did this and wonder why we didn't do it sooner because now he talks a lot more about what he sees around him. I still don't always understand what he says but am glad to hear the excitement in his tone as he points at this and that. He also asks, "What's that?" quite often.

When we go on fairly long drives he gets a little tired of looking outside and listening to his parents babbling on and on and does something very clever to draw all the attention to himself and thus gets us to finally keep quiet. What does he do? He sings.

This afternoon he was singing something to the effect of "gibberish, gibberish, shoe! gibberish, gibberish, daddy!" Always ending a line with an intelligible word. Most of the song is calm and melodic. This evening however, the calm "gibberish, gibberish, daddy!" suddenly lead into a headbanging "Car! Car! Car! Car!" as he rocked his head from side to side bashing it against the sides of the car seat head rest. Something inside must have stirred and we looked on somewhat entertained but mostly mystified and a little bit shocked by this almost 3 year old rocking out in our car. Rock on Rowan!
