Linky has also learned to say "Op it!" (Stop), "buh buh" (balloon), "Tan tu" (thank you). I'm working really hard with him on the please and thank you, hi and bye, but of course he has mastered "Oh, no, no, no" with the matching shaking of the head! Too funny to watch. Plus, his pout is Oscar worthy. Everytime I try to get it on film he all of a sudden livens up. It's so hard not to laugh at him when his lip is almost to his navel!!
As for Miss Maddy, she's trying out for NYSSMA (The New York State Music Association), I wasn't really excited about it until coincidentally one of my high school students mentioned it to me while programming and explained that it is quite a big deal! Maddy has until Friday to decide what she will do for her solo, her obvious choice (for any family that's reading this) is Ode To Joy, which she has played at every family event over the past 5 months or Baa Baa Blacksheep which she is teaching herself now. She's gotten quite good at it, and I told her the only way I'd let her audition is if she really practices for 30 minutes every day during the school week. So we'll see how things go with that!!
Here are some holiday pics of the fam!!
Now he's ready for the superbowl!
Remember Easy Bake Oven??
All the toys in the world and all he wanted to play with were his sister's Playdoh!
Of course he got mad when his sister took them away!
And the blow out shot with Daddy!
