Recording star

Another masterpiece, recorded by Noah

Typical evening

With one kid running around and the other making a bunch of noise. Just like we like it.

Eva is learning how to jump - she gets both feet off of the floor maybe once out of every 5 tries.  It's pretty great.

Noah just figured out how to record himself on the electric piano.

They don't stop learning for a minute, these two.

And then, the other day, we had ice cream.

And it was awesome.

 Best. Sport. Ever.

Beach day

So we went to the beach again (surprise, I know).  There was some sand there. 

Look!  It's mud!!

But in addition to sand, there were some good friends of ours who moved away at the same time we moved to Boston, and who had a baby girl 5 days after we had Eva.  This was our first opportunity to catch up in person in two years, and Eva and Lena had a baby-off.

And they're off!!

And they got to ride on a body board

Boat!  Boaaaaat!

And they're off again

That game was really awesome until Eva dumped it over the side.  She recovered reasonably well, the fact that the water was maybe 6 inches deep probably helped.

It was a great day, and awesome to see our friends from so far away.

Actual conversation I just had with Eva

Scene: Eva is sitting on her potty, holding up her underpants which have dinosaurs and trees on them

Eva: tie-sih-tah! (points at dinosaur)
Mommy: huh?
M: triceratops? (looks closer where Eva was pointing, sure enough it was a triceratops).
E: yah (points to tree)
E: eat that.
M: wow. You know a lot about dinosaurs.
E: yah. (nods)
M: (points to other dinosaur) this one is called a diplodocus.
E: yah.
E: tall one.
M: you're right
E: people climb it.
M: hahaha you wish.

Grand Finale

In which they've run out of songs, and Noah decides he's going to tell a joke. I apologize for the shaky camera work in due to my laughing. For the record, I think the joke he is going for is as follows (from Mary Poppins): guy #1: I met a man with a wooden leg named Smith guy #2: What was the name of the other leg? Hilarious, I know. Because nothing beats 1910 humor poorly retold by a 3 year old. This concludes this week's run of the Eva and Noah show. Perhaps there will be an encore tour sometime in the future, if we are lucky and Noah learns any other jokes.

They're stil going...

Although this time some cue cards might have been helpful... ... of course they don't really read... .. but for this song that may not have been a handicap...

Rising Stars

They really get into this one, huh Also, Eva needs to have a serious talk with the hair and makeup department for this show. No one should let her on stage with that hair... situation.

By popular request, an encore

Introducing the Noah and Eva Show!

For the record, they did this for a solid 10 minutes before I began taping. I was sure they'd get tired of it as soon as I started to tape and I should just enjoy the moment. And then they just kept on going, even with the camera out... Thank you, thank you. They'll be here all week.
