Another Ethan first: He put back a picture on request.

Ethan was playing in our bedroom, when he spotted a small picture of Beth on my nightstand. Curious as always, he took hold of it to get a better look (and taste, of course). Beth told Ethan that, no, he couldn’t have it. He understands limits and has learned to be obedient, so Beth knew that she could put the picture back and expect him to leave it. What she didn’t expect was that when she said, “Please put the picture back”, he would understand and do as she asked all by himself.
