A multimedia extravaganza starring Zeke (born January 2005) and his little sister Talia (born December 2006), lovingly put together by their father!

While we were in the car, driving to daycare, this morning, I overheard something along these lines from the back seat:
Ordinary Zeke voice: Hello, I am a shoe.
High-pitched, squeaky Zeke voice: Hello, I am a shoe, too.
Ordinary voice: Hello, shoe, we are friends. Let's dance!
He proceeded to wiggle his feet.

As of yesterday, Zeke has a new friend, Patrick, the baby elephant. He's the baby and Zeke's the mommy. He laid Patrick out on a blanket on the floor of his room, lay down next to him, held him close, and sang him a lullaby ("Hush-a-bye, don't you cry"). Then, he picked him up and inserted Patrick's trunk into his (Zeke's) belly-button and explained that Patrick was drinking milk. The name, "Patrick," was Zeke's idea.

Talia is doing a lot of sitting up, and she seems to enjoy it. Here's a little video (though it's kind of hard to see much). She was showing tremendous abdominal strength. She'd sit, then pitch forward onto her face, then just lift herself up back into a straight-up sitting position without using her arms. I couldn't believe it.
Zeke got poison ivy at the Envirofest on Sunday. He spent most of last night awake, frantically clawing at himself, and screaming. It was miserable for everybody, except Talia, who somehow managed to be oblivious and sleep through the whole thing. He seems better tonight, so far at least, knock on wood. It really sucked.

A little set from today.
She admired herself seated before a mirror. Then fell. Click for larger versions.
Just for cuteness' sake (Heather took this one):
Taken at this year's Pottstown, PA Envirofest, which was Saturday and included a petting zoo.

A quick update on what Talia's been doing lately. It's kind of quiet so you may want to turn up your volume. Also, the video seems to skip, and the video and audio aren't quite in sync. Scheißtechnik, as they say in Germany. The gist is: Talia has been sitting up, smiling all the time, grabbing at things, and even turning herself over. And she smiles a lot in this video, which I think is about three minutes long.
