Parallel Play

James' new favorite thing to do is play "catch." You can tell he knows what he's supposed to do, and sometimes it kind of works out for him, but of course never quite as well when he's on camera. He finally gets in a decent toss at the end of this clip. I'm sure it looks completely accidental to anyone but us, but we're having a great time with it. Needless to say, his dad is thrilled about this developing skill. Daphne never was (and still isn't really) very interested in playing catch.

(Please excuse the setting of this video...we were killing time while Daphne was on the potty. And in case you're wondering, I'm pretty sure she's saying "nakedy poop." Such is life with a toddler.)

Here's another one with some foot action, if you've got some more time to kill like I did!

In contrast, Daphne was very interested in moving around at this age, and James is still working on that one. Just for fun, I thought I'd post a video of Daphne at around the same age...just a week or so older than James is now. This is a couple weeks before she really got it down.

How different they were/are...even at such a young age!
