Walk this way... and talk this way

Just a quick note to say that Chase took 8 steps yesterday!!! He has been doing 1, 2 and 3 pretty regularly but that was the first time he really travelled. I had put out a big box for he and Summer to play with and Chase didn't pay it much attention as he was standing at the sliding glass doors watching Brad cut the grass. So Summer played for a bit and when she got out it tipped over which caught Chase's attention. So I went crazy encouraging him to now go get it, hooping and hollering! He took 3 steps, took a break and looked at me and then went 4 more to get to it! I'm not sure who was more excited, him or me!!!!

Not to leave Summer out, she has really taken to singing lately. When a song that she knows is playing you can here her going "ahhh ahhh ahhh" at the exact places words are in the song. She stops and starts in perfect time to the music. The first couple of times we thought we were kind of mishearing her but now she does it all the time. The theme to Sesame Street, Itsy Bitsy Spider (with full-on hand gestures!) and Bongo Bird are her favorites.
