Today has been much better than the last two days. David is still teething, but it's managable. I have been trying to teach David the sign for milk for the past couple of months. I didn't really have any expectation of him learning it right away, but figured I'd start him out early. Well, for the first time he signed "milk" It's really easy, it's just opening and closing your fist. So everytime I would get ready to nurse him I would say "David, do you want milk?" and do the sign. Today he signed it back to me! I was so excited and proud. Now the drawback is after he woke up for his nap I went to pick him up and he's franctically signing "milk!milk!" and crying. I had to laugh, it was really cute. I just hope he doesn't misuse his new found power. :)
Matthew had cub scouts today. It's the second meeting he's been to and he really seems to enjoy it. Today they learned about knives and what you should do if you get a fish hook stuck in a finger. They demonstrated on a hot dog by sticking it with a fish hook and showing the damage it could do to your finger if you try to just rip it out. Ouch!
On another note: For Valentine's Day Matt gave me a card that plays music. Matthew got a kick out of opening it and miming the words that play before the song kicks in. I wasn't really paying much attention to him cause he was playing with it for a few minutes, then all of a sudden I notice that he's dancing to the music. I died laughing. He was shaking his shoulders and movin his hips and he had the most serious look on his face...priceless. I will be posting the video of said dance. It's hilarious, but alot funnier to watch in person.
