first, someone else shows up in your bed. normally it’s nathaniel jumping into bed with us demanding waffles, so it was nice for him to get a taste of his own medicine for a change.

extremely proud of himself, zachary seeks approval. some minor encouraging may have been taking place for him to try some more.
this extra strike has appeared to wake the sleeping monster from his slumber.

A BROTHERS STUFFED ANIMAL PARTY!
