So, like any normal loving but sleep deprived parents, we think our kids are tops. Here are some reasons why you just might wish you could be in the Gimbel family under age 2.
1.Felix. Felix is the ironman wonderboy. No kidding. He's been holding his head up since day 1. (Seriously, no lies.)
He is not interested in this thing called bending or curling. I'm convinced he has only one joint in his body. We hold him and he stands as straight as he can be, right down to his pointed tippy toes. When we lift him in the air, not one part of his body bends. He goes right into the superman position. It's pretty weird.
He's definitely a family man. He always likes to be held and can only stand with being put down for a few minutes.
But when he's being held by mommy or daddy, grandma or grandpa, he is ALL CHEESY SMILES. He is so incredibly happy. He even is a big fan of Uschi.And fortunately Uschi's a big fan of him. We thought we might have some jealousy issues, but she actually likes this strange intruder. Sometimes he's a bit boring. But we can't all be perfect.
Speaking of which...
2. Uschi. She's pretty much the hammiest kid I know. She goes out of her way to crack people up (as you may or may not have seen with the video of her laughing that I posted on facebook).
She just started doing this thing where she gives me this big crusty face that's so silly, I crack up.
She got me laughing:
Yeah, she's funny...
...and we're pretty lucky.
