Zekijah Jeannetta Monique VanderVeen Hoekstra

Thanks for all the suggestions and guesses about what lil’ Zed is trying to say.  I think you are all right.  And you all win an opportunity to come over to our house, spend the afternoon with the three kids so I can ride my bike.

I think that she is saying either ‘my dad rules’

or ‘watch out world because I am half Marisa, half Mendelt, all Zekijah, partly influenced by my big bro Zion and my sis Jacoba and I am ready to take you on‘.

And as my mom says, “you go Zekijah, girl power!”
