Ballgame Redux

This is the other video Michael took for us over the weekend.  I know James has done a better job with this song in the past, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share his cute, raspy sick voice.  

More Scooting/Crawling

Sarah is on the verge of figuring out how to crawl with her belly off the ground.  Lately, she starts on all fours, moves for a little bit, and then gives up and goes back to her trusty army crawl.

Last weekend, Michael Ciaglo was here, and he took a couple of really great videos with his awesome camera (he is very talented).  This is one of them that shows Sarah trying to crawl.  Thanks, Michael!

Sarah also figured out how to pull herself to standing in her crib this week.  The only problem is, once she's there, she doesn't know how to get back down.  Poor thing!

James Still Loves to Sing!

James just loves to sing.  He starts singing as soon as he wakes up in the morning (much to my chagrin sometimes, since he shares a room with Sarah), and he keeps on singing off and on all day long.  He sings theme songs from TV shows ("Welcome to our world, Word World!"), jingles from commercials ("Pop, pop! Fizz, fizz! Oh, what a relief it is!"), little snippets of songs from musicals that he has heard me sing ("Can do! Can do! This guy says the horse can do!"), and, of course, he sings primary songs which he learns from us and from nursery.  Today, we made a video of him singing "I am a Child of God", since it has been so long since I've posted a video of him singing.  Just before we recorded it, he was giving some of his toys a nap, and he kept switching between singing it in Japanese and singing it in English. :)

James has a bit of a cold right now, so his nose and upper lip are a little bit raw. :(  He's in good spirits, though, so hopefully he's on the mend!
