Reading to Claire

Every night before bed, we read books to both kids. Claire goes to bed at least an hour before Wesley, so he often listens to us read to her too. The other night, he wanted to read a book to her. Here they are sitting in the rocking chair in her room reading Goodnight Moon. Claire listened very intently the whole time and answered Wesley when he asked her to point things out in the book or to tell him what things were.

Claire often likes to have a piece of string cheese (or a 'cheese stick' as they're called in our house). Lately, she wants to go sit in the same place to eat the cheese. She'll grab the cheese, walk over to our pantry cabinet, open it up, and sit instead munching on the cheese. She does this EVERY time now.

Swim class slide

On the last day of each 10 week swim class session, they let the kids go down the pool slide into the deep end. Our friend's dad took this video of Wesley on the slide this morning.

Mother Claire

At dinner tonight, Claire informed me that "Baby hungry". She wanted her baby doll to sit in the highchair at the dinner table. So, I pulled the chair around next to Claire's seat and put the baby in. Then, Claire told me "Bib!" meaning that I had forgotten to properly cover baby for the meal.

While we all sat at the table, Claire kept trying to feed Baby parts of her dinner ("Orange?" "Milk?" etc.). I tried to make it clear that Baby had her own food (a hot dog and green bell pepper, which were the first things I could find in Claire's toy kitchen), but evidently she really wanted to share. After dinner, Claire wanted Baby to get down so that she could put her "nigh nigh" in her doll bed and cover her with a blanket. Super cute.

Christmas morning

Here is one I promised from Christmas morning. Claire is playing with her baby, covering her up with blankets and giving her kisses.

Wesley the juggler

Here's the long awaited video of Wesley juggling his plastic bags.

More animal sounds

Here's another one with Claire making some other animal sounds she knows.

Old Videos

I hadn't realized how long it had been since I downloaded the videos off our camera, but I had ones from August still on there (!!!!). I'm going to post some of my favorites throughout the day today. Enjoy!

Here's a very recent one of Claire.
