A Funny Thing You Do

A funny thing you do is to pound your fist on the table, high chair, or whatever flat surface you are close to. When you do it I like to yell "Order in the court!" like you are a judge just about to have everyone thrown out of the courtroom for misconduct. Where is that bailiff to do your dirty work?

This Time Last Year

This time last year your mom and I went on our last big outing, just the two of us. Almost just the two uf us; we took one of the dogs. It was to Charleston, SC, to celebrate our anniversary. This year we are taking our little anniversary trip a little bit later. The big change in our little get-away is that we are also taking you, so get ready to feel some sand between your toes. Get used to that feel of sunblock against your skin. Couldn't let that soft pink skin of yours get burnt. I even have a special pair of baby sunglasses ordered just for you. You have to look cool, just like us.

Twice As Nice

You hit another milestone. This one was doubling your birth weight. Way to go. You seem like such a big girl now. Now that you have achieved this just don't start growing exponentially!

The Clapping Song

3, 6, 9
The goose drank wine
The monkey chew tobacco on the streetcar line
The line broke, the monkey got choked
And they all went to heaven in a little rowboat

You learned how to clap today. When I got home from work your mom told me you clapped for her. It wasn't long before you clapped for me too. Looks like this has become your favorite new show-off trick. Now I may be bragging, but isn't this a sign of being a genius at 7 months old? Hold your applause until the end, please. Wait, you just learned to clap so go ahead and do it when and where you want. Where did you learn how to clap? Was it at Church during praise and worship or at school imitating the other babies in class? Anyway, it's a marvelous new thing that you have learned. Keep practicing. We will start clapping to music soon. We can learn to do the Hand Jive. We might even learn The Clapping Song.

Clap, pat, clap your hand
Pat it on your partners hand
Right hand, clap, pat
Clap your hand cross it
With your left arm
Pat your partners left palm
