What Jane does

Here's a brief rundown of what Jane did while I was trying to nurse George to sleep:

turned light off (a light on George's changing table that has a switch on the cord) "yite eff"
talked to mommy even though mommy's telling her to "GO!"
"yite eff, yite eff"  as she turned it on and back off
shuts bathroom door
says "bye"
pulls an umbrella out of the hat stand (again, with mommy telling her to put it back)
tries to pull a second umbrella out of the stand
lays first umbrella down
finds a toy and brings it to George
"Gorg ni-nite"
Talks about her shoes "Mikal oofoos, Mikal oofoos"  because she's wearing Michael's shoes
offers mommy a kiss
"bye"
goes to living room where I hear her kiss Michael
turns TV off and on (which annoys Michael)
steals some kind of toy from Michael (again annoying Michael)
Then all is quiet as I put George in his bed.

This is just maybe 3 minutes of my day......it never stops when she's awake.

Long long long long lost member?

Michael loves music.  Pretty much anything but he's particularly partial to guitars.  Any guitar music.  He really loves watching anyone play music.  Live is really a sight to see, but on TV is almost as awesome.  Michael mimics the stance that musician's take as well as their singing quirks (mouth to the microphone, tapping foot, strumming, etc.).

We finally found the music shelf at the library.  A couple weeks ago we found a book on the Beatles.  Then I realized that I had a Beatles best of album and started playing it for Michael.  THEN we found a little DVD of the Beatles' first concert in America.  He loves it.  He started using the fence hinges as a microphone, then we set up the big blowup microphone.

Here are Michael's latest Beatles performances.  I'm going to give them to you in ascending excellency.

George and mommy

Visit to Houston

This was our visit to Houston last month, or so. There are some videos, too. I will try to get those loaded.
