  • Tony comes into the bedroom with a basketball and says "Daddy! Pump!"  It was stunning to me that he would do this because he somehow made the connection between the fact that the basketball needed air, that the basketball needed a pump to put air in it, and that the pump was to be found on top of a closet in the bedroom.  I was happy to see the cleverness: I was horrified that Tony would want to play with a basketball indoors.
  • Tony can catch a soft soccer ball when it is thrown at him, sometimes.
  • Tony likes putting coins in slots or in small containers.  He will dump the coins out of the containers so he can put them back in again.
  • "What are you doing Daddy?"
  • "Where are you going Daddy?"
  • "Where is Mama?"
