Another new interest he's had, which you will notice if you spend 5 minutes with him, is Transformers. There are a few kid-friendlier cartoons like "Rescue Bots" that we let him watch sometimes and now he pretends to transform into different vehicles and things, complete with sound effects. This is sometimes helpful like when he transfers into a bulldozer to pick things up or when we could convince him to carry a lawnchair on his back because he could then "transform" into a chair. It also sparks a lot of imagination building his own transformers with Legos. I could do with out the constant sound effects, but gives me hope that he might make it to "the Sing-off" as a beat-boxer someday.
