They're really evolving in to the most awesome little people. The past couple of weeks, I have been convinced that I'd like to keep them at this age forever. Which is a good thing, because last month, I was prepared to give all three of them away.
Free - to a good home.
Every night before bed, we've been playing music from The Laurie Berkner Band and the kids go absolutely nuts when they hear their favorite song "I'm Gonna Catch You." They'll stop what ever it is they are doing and take off running around the center island in our kitchen.
This is some video footage I shot, yesterday. After watching the clip, I can't decide who is having a better time ... Charlie or the kids?
I think that it's extremely impressive that Elizabeth stops running - grabs bunny - and then proceeds to suck her thumb, while running, for the next 2 minutes. (Although she does flip him to the side at one point when she needs to focus on her stride.)
I also think it's extremely impressive that Charlie, after ripping his pocket clean off his shorts, doesn't stop.
This might be considered very good training for the next marathon Charlie plans to run.
As for me, I'm burning calories just watching them.
