So, we have always come up with songs that fit the behavior or looks of our kids. It all started with Addy in her huge cloth diapers when we would sing the Rocky theme song and swing her little fists to the beat. It was always when she was wearing the green diaper with white lining. Those ones look just like boxing shorts. We always laughed that we should make videos of it but we never did.
Tonight I was getting ready to change William's diaper and he was kicking his feet all over the place and making a racket because his cloth cover is in the laundry because yesterday I got distracted emptying the diaper pail while his diaper was off. Really? When I finally got back to him he had peed all over and was grinning like crazy. :) Anyway, while I've never seen more than clips of Irish dancing or Riverdance, he seems to have it in his blood. Maybe he's trying to tell us he does want us to call him Master William or Liam. Anyway, here's his debut. I think we're a little tired tonight because this was really funny to us. I hope you enjoy it too.
We did have professional photos taken of our family right after William was born. Since we've been so busy (and our photographer is about to have her 4th baby) it's taken a bit of time to get them back. But since I'm in such a goofy mood I'll share this one with you. Seriously, why did we pay so much money for a picture with William cross-eyed in it?! :) Maybe our photographer was in a goofy mood too when she included this one in our CD. She did get the exact same shot without his eyes crossed and was nice enough to give us that one too.
William has been busy sleeping, eating, and you know. . . He's also been busy getting out of his swaddle. We've tried the miracle blanket, we've tried the swaddleme, we've tried both of them together. It doesn't matter. If he wants to get his hands out, he gets them out and wakes himself up during his nap by eating his hands. He won't go back to sleep unless he's re-swaddled. Good grief! I'm ready for him to grow out of needing to be swaddled to sleep. Check out the serious look he has. He's already got quite the expressive face.
And just so you know he isn't always so serious, here's his whole body grin. :)
Ok, off to bed. Happy Memorial Day!
