More new tricks...more video included!

A picture can be worth a thousand words...but so can a video. I was fortunate enough to capture two videos...the first one is of James. He was amongst a pile of toys when I noticed he picked up his hammer and peg board. He looked at it thoughtfully (usually they just hit randomly EVERYTHING around them) but this time he totally "figured out" how it works. He was trying to hammer down the nails in the bed board. Of course once he hammered them down, he got frustrated trying to turn it back over to hammer them again and shows his frustrations..which is also cute:)

I know you must think I am a little over the top here for posting James playing with a toy (momma with too much enthusiasm) but I find myself so thankful and rightfully giddy when the boys reach a milestone of such. He also (on the same night) learned the process of "drop it, pick it up"...he just watched himself over and over pick up a bottle and throw it down on the hardwood floor to "see what would happen", he did the same thing with his new favorite toy that Mamaw gave him for Christmas (a tow truck), he raised the bed of the truck up and then down and watched it so intently. I will stop rambling now and just post the video...Just wanted to share the joy I felt last night watching my boys reach another milestone in development.

The second video is of both boys signing "more" at dinner. They were enjoying some nutritious beanie weenies and both started signing "more". Of course by the time I got my camera they stopped, but we did get them to do it a few more times. The funniest is when they start signing more while I am trying to prepare the food...kinda like clapping "hurry mommy hurry mommy"

Oh yeah, and remember to mute the sound of the music on the song playlist at the bottom right of the page so you can hear the chaotic sounds in the background of the dinner video...Rob says our home sounds like a daycare...I wouldn't have it any other way...

I love this! Our boys are really into making that noise with one hand at the end of the dinner video, too. No idea why.... it's too funny! It is so fun to see them... they are doing GREAT! :)
