"one upon a time"

Recently we have been telling Gabriel oral stories, starting with Once upon a time. The stories generally involve him and rocket and a castle. Gabriel becomes so enthralled with these stories. He constantly asks for more. If he is ever upset I say, "Once upon a time," and he instantly calms down and listens.

Sit and Spin

The other day I noticed Noah spinning around in a circle (sitting and using his feet to spin). I started to sing, "around and around we go...spin, spin around. So know when I say, Noah spin around, he does just that....very cute!

When to the pool today. Gabriel is really enjoying it now. He says he's a seal and he goes around the baby pool walking on his hands, his feet dragging behind. He's content to mostly play alone, just going around the pool on his hands and talking to himself.

Is it.......?

"Is it......." Lately Gabriel has been posing everything in the form of a question. When we went to White Flint mall Gabriel asked, "Is it White?"
He pointed to the T.V., "Is it a toy?" Picks up a blue book..."Is it blue?" I guess he's just reiterating what he already knows.
