Pre-dinner snack

I left the boys playing with Marble Works (minus the marbles) so I could do a load of laundry. It got awfully quiet, and I returned to this:

Adon found the Cheerios I stashed in the diaper bag and kindly shared them with his brother. They were both very content to eat them right off of the floor. I love them so much. They're so cute!

Da Da & clapping

Gabe has randomly begun to say "Da Da." Of course, this makes J grin from ear to ear. Also, we've been struggling with Gabe at meal time. He's very demanding and grunts or screams loudly to get food immediately. We prayed, and I began to teach him the sign for "more." Though his fine motor skills and coordination are not very well developed, he's begun to clap his hands. He mostly claps them when he's sitting in his high chair and indicating that he wants more to eat. He smiles so big when I say "more" after he's clapped, as if he were saying, "Now you've got it, Mom!" Enjoy!
