A couple tid-bits of cuteness

Joni and I recently started trying to teach Jackson some new skills. For several days he just looked at us like we were crazy when we tried teaching him to wave, clap, or do "so big!" Then all of a sudden, he started doing all three within a day or two of each other. Here is a video of one of his new skills:

(The best part is that he reaches as far as his little arms will let him, and he hardly gets to the top of his head.)

Also, the other day Joni pulled out a pretty silk scarf that Megan had brought us home from China. She said, "Look mom, I'm going to be Arabic!" In about five seconds (literally), she did this:

(I've never taught her to do this. We watch a lot of foreign movies, mostly Middle Eastern and German. Joni has a couple of Arabic favorites, so I think that's where her idea came from).

Your kids are just so stinkin' cute! I love Joni's cheerleading in the background, "You can do it! You can do it!" What a great big sister. Priceless!!!
