On a Lighter Note...

Okay, it's time to lighten things up around here. Now this is mainly for my friends and family who don't get to see the kids very often...and wish they could. This particular video focuses on little D. For his birthday, we got him a Little Tikes Up and Down Roller Coaster. I don't think the grandparents have gotten to see him on it yet, and I know they haven't seen him on the trampoline since he learned to jump around rather than just staying in one place hopping....so, I made this video for them mainly, but thought I'd share it with the blogosphere as well, because well, I had nothing else to blog about today! :)

Now, I did try to narrate the clips, but apparently while the computer has a recorder, it needs an external microphone...which I don't have. So, I'll just give you a little background.

You will notice that David can get on the roller coaster and ride it all by himself, but when he is done, he runs back to the top and waits for someone else to bring the car back for him! You may also notice that the other kids jump to do it, and he never even has to ask! He just stands there and someone brings it back for him...why doesn't that work for me???

Anyway, after he rides a couple of times, you will see that he forces his sister to ride as well. We thought at first he was trying to push her out of the way, but then realized that he was trying to get her on the roller coaster rather than away from it. Then, pushes her down the coaster! If you listen carefully, you can hear him laughing after he pushes her down.

Finally, he gets on the trampoline and jumps to his heart's content and then just climbs off into the waiting arms of his big brother...who is waiting patiently to catch him! If only they all got along this well all of the time! Oh wait, did I just spoil the illusion? Drat! I hate it when I do that!

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this little peek into David's Playland otherwise known as our backyard. (And yes, that is a football field behind the trampoline that B. made with Daddy's very expensive white tape so he and J. could practice on a "real" field! It has goal posts too, but they didn't make the video.)

How cute was that! I loved how the baby waited for his siblings to go get the car! And how he pushed his sister when it was her turn! Too cute! Oh and the credits how funny!

What a great video:) You little guy seems just like my two year old. Not wanting to miss a beat with their older siblings. What a neat gift you got him. I've never seen that before.

Mel,

So sorry about your loss! You wrote beautiful words about your grandma and I know she IS up in heaven watching over those precious little babies of yours.

We're visiting at home this week...hopefully will blog sometime next week!

Take care! Love, Jo
