Catch & Release

Caroline has a new skill....catching! All of a sudden she has this new found interest in catching balls when thrown to her. We spent about a half hour in her room last night with a medium sized foam ball going back and forth. She's got a strange little technique in catching the ball with both of her arms, but it works more often than not, so I'm not knocking it. But the throwing part she doesn't quite have yet. She doesn't understand the principle of throwing in a specific direction and kind of just launches it wherever, but we'll just take it one step at a time.

And speaking of catching, here's the video of her jumping off the diving board to me last week. It sounds like she's crying at the end, but she makes that weird "cry" after every jump when water is in her eyes/nose. She would always surface with a huge smile on her face, proud of what she'd just done.

That is funny, this is one of Sydney's big things for this weekend. She also learned how to catch. She loved it!
