I got some sweet videos of the kids today that I wanted to share with you.
This first one is of Gavin and his ever developing vocabulary. The boy doesn’t say much that people can understand. He is trying new words all the time, lately though. Gavin likes to watch Dora the Explorer with his big sister (which I had the “joy” of listening to for about 2-3 hours on the way to the beach today). There is a fox on that cartoon called “Swiper” that is always trying to swipe things from Dora. In the show, Dora will say, “Swiper, no swiping!” Gavin can often be caught saying “swiping” It doesn’t exactly sound like that, but it is pretty cute.
This next one is of Mikayla trying to occupy her brother while I am about to jump in the shower. Gavin has really grown to love the song “Five little monkey swinging in the tree.” He will just giggle and giggle whenever that alligator snaps up a monkey. It was so cute to see them acting like this together. If you notice during one of Mikayla’s small breaks, he raises his hand and says “monkey.” Yes, it does sound a lot like “Swiping,” but I am just happy that he is finally trying to say some words.
