Hannah's first recorded use of a remote control

Obviously if you are blessed with a child who is this appealing, posting daily is much, much easier.

I bought each girl a toy that is operated with a remote control, thinking it would encourage Hannah to use two thumbs to press the buttons simultaneously. I figured she'd watch Claire and try the same thing, but not so. She shrieked and carried on as though this sheep meant business, until tonight, when she finally grabbed the remote from her sister and gave it her all. My uncooperative camera missed the shots of her really trying to get her thumb on the button, but you see the intent and the interest. My heart swelled with pride, tears welled up in my eyes, and I realized I'll have to get her a Wii if I want to get her out of the daily crawl of the blanket tunnel.
