As to that DVD player (a gift from Nana), it saved our sanity on the 5 hour drive down to Indiana and then back up again this past weekend. The kids had a great time at Camp Joe. They loved making the cicadas chirp, and also got to see various other wildlife including a turtle, deer, snakes, and toads.
Another thing we've been amazed at is how similar Julia's and Isaac's language development has been. Isaac's a bit slower, but he says the same words, like "bape" for "grape", "sta!" for "stuck!" (especially when reading the Pooh bear book where Pooh gets stuck in rabbit's doorway), and "ooo moe-ay!" for "holey moley!" He still loves the part in Finding Nemo when the fish are doing their tribal chant, "Ah-oo ah-oo ah-oo-oo-oo, oooh!" He has been in a fun and crazy mood lately. From the moment his feet hit the ground in the morning, he is tearing around the house, picking up toys, throwing them down, running back and forth, stamping his feet. He had his arm cocked behind him to throw a ball, pretty close to Julia yesterday. Julia was kinda cowering, trying not to get hit. He threw it right past her, but as she tried to inch by him, he planted both hands on her chest and shoved. She kept on inching past, with her shoulders all hunched up to protect herself. We're really trying to teach Isaac how to be gentle, before he gets stronger than all of us!
