The boys are expanding their experience with food.
Of course it's fun to watch them respond to different flavors and textures.

Will makes noises you might here in an adult movie when he really likes something.

Of course if he doesn't like it, he has several tricks.

Originally, he just locked his mouth shut--like Fort Knox.
You could make him laugh, but he'd do it with his mouth shut (very cute).
He might be frustrated to the point of crying, which remarkably, he can do with his mouth shut.

Next he started flailing his arms to drive the spoon away.
Isaac would "motorboat" for a while when he didn't like a taste (sending it all over everything).

There both doing pretty good about eating now.
No spitting, flailing, or mouth-fortressing

But Will figured out that we won't give him food if he doesn't have his bib on.

So when he decides he is done, or when he doesn't like the food, he violently rips it off and throws it to the floor.
And like everything Will does, he does it with zest.

these pictures don't have anything to do with this story. Consider them a consolation prize for those of you who didn't like the story.

PS. I have some great video footage. I'm going to start editing it soon. I mean it!

Will and Isaac's favorite new Christmas sweatshirts from Aunt Marianne and Uncle David (and cousins Emma and Liam).

They were a little nervous when they saw eachother in their hoods.

Musical geniuses at 9 months old!

I really do not want to be known as one of those moms who brag about their kids all the time, but really... have you ever seen two 9 month olds as interested in musical instruments as these? I am convinced that they are prodigies already. We have decided that Isaac will be an excellent drummer someday soon - he has such great rhythm. Will has that perfect pitch and is going to have a beautiful lead-singer's voice, along with his keyboard skills. Daniel is already talking about the band he is going to have with his boys someday. I am so lucky to have such talented boys!

Isaac and Will's favorite new toy...

I used to be able to fold laundry while they played once in a while, but now that they are moving everywhere - it is almost impossible. They are either trying to crawl inside the basket or knocking over the piles of clothes and playing with them. I have recently found that nap time is the best time to catch up on laundry.
