Know your cars

Anyone who knows Jake knows that he likes cars. Actually that's the understatement of the year...he is OBSESSED with cars. And ever since he could attempt the words, he would correctly identify them and remember which person had which vehicle. For a long time it was "toh-toh-toh" for Toyota and "naw-naw" for Honda, but he'd get it right EVERY time. It used to freak me out, and it still does every once in a while when he's only seen the side of a car that has no logo or words on it anywhere. Especially ones like SAAB or Daewoo. So no car has ever been just a "white car" or "big car." Including his hot wheels. Take a look.

He's right on every one of them by the way. And that was my first take. I'm not exaggerating when I say he'd rather go to a parking garage than a toy store. But he's a cute little freak, isn't he?

That's a real gift he has. I'm not sure what he will use it for, but someday we'll all tell stories about Jake and his vehicle identification mad skillz. I'll say, "And then Jake said, "I don't like your purple Dodge."
I know. I need to just let it go.

I call him the car savant. Definitely not in his DNA. It's a gift.

I LOVE his obsession. It's one of the cutest things I have ever seen in a child. I am sad he will no longer be able to talk about my "Red Toyota" he'll have to see my "silver dodge" now! I guess when he goes to G & G Alcorn's house he can see the Matrix at my parent's house..they are buying it from us:) He's a doll Ang!

Are you allowed to call your own child a "cute little freak"? :) He is quite amazing. Take him to disneyland and he wouldn't make it past the parking garage... sad, but cheaper than going in!

I've said it before and I'll say it again...We HAVE to get this kid on Ellen! Just think about the gifts she'll give him. And I totally volunteer to take him--I don't mind. Really!! :)

Every time I see him do that I am so amazed. And I love that whenever I see him he asks where Jason is in his Ford F-250! I am constantly telling people about his little talant! Some might call it freakish, I like to call it genius! :)
