Before we went, we stopped off at our local library branch for a special ASL sign language story and song hour.
We have been signing with Jasper for over a month now and its really good stuff.
He knows "bath", "eat" and "wet diaper" plus "teddy bear".
Its cute to see his eyes light up when he is fussy and you sign for "eat" b/c he realizes you understand him.
The story hour was a hit. His eyes were fastly riveted on the lady leading the group.
He loves books and beyond that, loves a good song and is into the signing so to have all three together? Genius.
Zuma was so nice. We kept the baby covered and under an umbrella with 50 spf but wow, did he ever love the beach. We spent a lot of time there when he was in utero and could hear the sounds. His Sleep Sheep he goes to sleep listening to makes the sounds of the ocean and of whales so for him to finally be there for real was a sensory overload.
Here are two funny clips...
one is Jasper attacking Matt's face
and another of him chattering away... Speaking of the beach, we begin his swim lessons tomorrow! Its a 10 day "bootcamp" Minnows private group lesson with two of his little friends at this teacher's private heated saline pool. I know he will be a regular little fish and love it as bathtime is a big hit at our house and his daddy was once a competitive swimmer. We are going up to Yosemite in a few weeks and will be staying at a lodge with a pool. If its indoors, maybe he will be able to use his new swim skills up there.
