Video Debut, Dance Moves, and Serious Denial

Since I kind of made fun of Ivy in my last post, I thought I'd make it up to her by posting a little clip. (Not to mention appeasing long-distant family members who may or may not have seen her yet.) To me, she really is entertaining. I could stare at her little face all day. When I look at her, it reminds me of when Sophie was a newborn, and I realize that I forgot how little she was, how tiny her fingers were and all the funny noises and faces she made. It makes me sad because I know I'll forget those things about Ivy, too. Sure, pictures and video are wonderful, but they'll never be that small in your arms again. I better stop before I need to grab a tissue.

And now the latest from Sophie...

In addition to Sophie's wicked dance moves, you'll notice a giant, crocheted sock monkey which was made by and sent to her by my wonderfully talented cousin, Sarah. Sarah got married in Idaho last Saturday, and I was really, really, REALLY disappointed I couldn't be there. I heard everything was beautiful, though. Congrats you guys :)

I think this one is pretty self-explanatory. Sophie obviously needs a nap and is heading into her "two's".

SO CUTE! I loved the videos. Ivy is so precious, and I loved the last video of Sophie. That just made me smile and think of my girls.

They are both so cute. It makes me miss the little one stage of life. Sigh. I'm also impressed that you know how to upload video! I wish I could figure that out. Very cool.

hmm, i have to say that is the cutest "no" i have ever heard come out of a toddlers mouth. When Ryan was two and it was nap time it involved much kicking and screaming and throwing of things...don't really miss that :)

These little ones are the cutest-- I know... I say that all time! Ivy's eyes really are huge! And I love all the little sounds she makes :) Sophie is so precious... At least she's good at saying no, the task now is teaching her WHAT to say no to... they can get it a little backwards sometimes!

I love the "No" video, hopefully she's always that cute when she says no!:) It'd be hard to get mad at that!
