Watermelon, Animal Sounds, and Core Training

Here are a few video clips of the munchkin that I've been meaning to post...

I mentioned briefly before how much Sophie likes watermelon. This clip was taken one morning when she ate three pieces of watermelon that size . . . after she'd already eaten breakfast. No matter how full she is, she'll never say no to a piece of watermelon. By the way, watermelon juice stains. I tried stain remover, bleaching, and washing several times and she still has faint pink spots on her cupcake jammies. :(


Sophie's favorite animal sound lately is howling like a wolf. Two of her animal books have wolves in them and she knows exactly what page they're on. She even recognizes the page right before and starts to get excited. (you'll see) In the clip she also does a bear and an owl for the first time.


Another favorite thing to do is sit on her purple ball and bounce. Steve sits on the exercise ball and they do core training together.

Jakob is the same with watermelon. He eats a lot of it, yeah, and the juice gets everywhere, bib or no bib. I'm impressed with the animal noises. I don't read enough to Jakob, or make enough noises I guess.

Those are the cutest videos! I love the ball sitting and you saying, "that is a deer. Deer don't say anything". Just cracked me up.

I love that you've got Sophie taught on all the non-traditional animal sounds too. =D That cracks me up.
