thank you

Thank you creator of Trader Joe's organic yogurt squishers.  Yogurt is fun again.  And Garrett can do it mostly by himself!

Garrett had his first bandaid-worthy accident.  He closed his thumb in the front door, yes the big wooden door.
There wasn't much crying, but it was bleeding.  So to protect his Biola shirt and our upholstery, I applied a bandaid.  There wasn't a bit of gagging, which due to his aversion to stickers, I expected.  However, the bandaid only last about 15 minutes.  He pulled it off and threw it in the garbage can.

Garrett's love for cleaning

Garrett's cousin Kaylin has a fear of vacuum cleaners.  Irrational perhaps, she's afraid of them when they aren't even turned on, but everyone has fears. 

Wait, no.  My son doesn't have any fear.  In fact, he has an unhealthy desire to be sucked up into the vacuum cleaner.  See for yourself:

Update: Garrett actually is afraid of something, stickers and double sided tape - he'll gag and scream if they come near him.
Laura's update to the Update: Garrett voluntarily reached for double sided tape today.  Apparently, even that fear is fading.
