Peek A Boo

So we have been quiet here because I have been trying to load some videos for over a week and I keep getting error messages. So I am going to have to investigate further to find out where the problem lies.

These pictures are freeze frames from a video that we have of Brianna and Mia playing Peek-A-Boo with Hadley. Bri started the game and then Mia joined in when I got the camera out. It was one of the most priceless moments yet.

Hadley just thinks the girls are hilarious. In this clip she is laughing hysterically at the girls (primarly Bri).

Brianna is fascinated by Hadley and tries to do everything that she sees me do. One of my challenges is that the rougher Bri gets with her, the more she laughs. Which causes Bri to get all the crazier. It's a viscious cycle of unending escalation.

I realized today that in most of our videos the girls are just in diapers and this one is particularly bad because their onsies aren't even snapped. Well, part of the problem is I strip their pants off for every meal - otherwise they trash their pants.

And then today was a potty training day. So they never really had pants on. I am on day three and Brianna and I are about ready to give up. :( It is soooo much work taking her to the bathroom and washing her hands all the time. I think being potty trained is overrated. Bri does too.

Mia isn't showing even the slightest bit of interest, thank goodness. I don't think I could handle doing two at the same time. However if I have to resort to candy incentives I have a feeling that Mia might perk up to the idea.

hey Elise-
We're trying the potty training stuff too and I agree totally over rated.

..About the video (not that you asked me) try using another video source- like vimeo.com then embed the code to the blog.
We found it works so much better

Good luck with both!
