Playing, Clapping, Sleep-talking, and vacation!

I know, I know...to many things in one post. First, we went our friend's house this afternoon. Ben used to live across the road from us and he and Abe have been friends for a long time (relative to their ages). Abe and Ben, for the first time, really played together. It was SO cute. They were following each other around, laughing and interacting!! It was just adorable.

Second, for the first time today, Abe clapped! Hooray. Like everything else, he did it once (without any previous attempts) and has continued to clap all day! You'll see both of these things in the video below.

Third, last night we were driving home from Tami's house and Abe, who had previously been asleep, started talking. "Dada, dada" initially...then a few minutes later "nonononono" and then he started laughing hysterically. We were at a stop light, so I peeked over his car seat and yep, low and behold he was sound asleep. I guess he takes after me.

Finally, I am leaving or vacation early on Tuesday morning, so I might be somewhat absent from my usual blogosphere. I'll try a post or two while I'm gone, but no promises! Wish me luck on my 4 hour flight to SLC (by myself...ahhh!!!)

How cute! Ashton and Jace were crawling around together last night, it will be so fun when they can interact more, like that.

Have fun on your trip, how come you are going to Utah?

That is awesome. Ashton is not even close to clapping, but I guess you would have said that about Abe right before he did it also huh? Good luck on your trip and dont worry.....you wont be alone....you will have Abe with you!

Benson has recently started clapping also. Now everything he does he claps when he is finished. I love it.
Why you coming to SLC? Is Abe comming with you?

Tucker Dad said...

Abe is so cute. I am sure you know the stories of Mom and her family when it comes to not only sleep talking, but sleep walking. They are so funny. I use to love coming home and finding Mom asleep and talking, some times I could even enter into her dreams.

See ya next week.
