Signing Names

Over the weekend Aly and I were looking at some family pictures and I was asking her who this was and who that was, and because she isn't talking very much (other than DA DA DEE) it was amusing to see the sign names she created for everyone. Of course she has Mom and Dad pretty good and Grandma was more of a chopping motion to the side rather than moving her hand forward from her chin. For Uncle Preston she pats her head. For Aunt Natalee she points to her nose and scrunches up her face, its really cute but I don't understand the relation. and for everyone else she just signs roll. So in an attempt to thwart the mass confusion of everyone having the same sign name, and to be able to distinguish all the different babies from each other; we felt that it would be wise have sign names for everyone. We'll go ahead and start with Alyson. Typically sign names are some kind of action with your initial, putting it on your forehead for example, or circling it next to your cheek. For Alyson we have combined her first and middle initial like thus...

Lets all try it together. Ready and go.

Good job everyone.

For myself I obviously am Dad, but to the other children to whom I am not father I have chosen the letter "F" next to the forehead, as Uncle is a "U" next to to the forehead. Like so ---->

Now its your turn to com up with a sign name. Otherwise you may go down in history as a roll.

Some clips from the past

Here are some clips from back when we were young and crazy.

Camille Paragliding.

Gavin and Uncle Foote on the Long Board.

This one is my favorite, I had my deviated septum corrected and this is when they took the stints out.

Doesn't that make you want to blow your nose?

More from the park

Reviewing some of the pictures we took at the park we decided to add some more because Alyson is just so darn cute!!

Aly's musical Genious

After dinner and a few games Aly decided to grace us with a musical selection on the piano.

She is bursting with so much enthusiasm that she has to stand to play.

Or, here's what really happened. But it was still cute.

Our Long Boarding Queen

Friday Dad took the afternoon off from work and we went to the park. Aly has picked up skateboarding and she loves it, she can ride on her tummy and ride sitting up and sometimes she tries to make the transition while in motion. So far she has only fallen off once and she wasn't even moving. We don't know if she was crying because she fell or because we took her off the skate board but she was happy once we put her back on the board.

This one is a Video

Camille's first post

This is my training run on using the blog site. Here are a few pictures of Aly and her friend Cassidy at swimming lessons. She loved lessons and was so excited on the last day to swim with a life jacket all by herself.

A short film from inside the Bathroom

Alyson doesn't like it when Daddy goes anywhere without her, including to the bathroom.
