It was fun, skimming through all 3,245 old pics and videos that had been shot over the last year, many of them taken by The Storm. Good times, good times.
These two videos especially made me giggle. The first was taken while lounging on the couch. Hail announced, "I can woll my eyes!" which immediately made Lightning want to try it out too. You know, because rolling one's eyes is apparently important... in this house, anyway.
There were approximately 47 videos just like this next one. Lightning learned all the words to "Baby-Baby-Baby, Ohhhh!" as we call it. For three solid months afterwards, he would ask me to video him, so he could watch it. Over and over and over again. Guess we all got a little bit of Bieber Fever this past year. My favorite thing about this one is listening to Lightning's husky little voice. No, he's not hoarse. Nor is he getting over a respiratory infection. This is how the boy has sounded since the day he was born. His very first cry for breath as he entered this world sounded all husky and hoarse, and made Bert and I laugh immediately. He sounds like a chain smoker. And I LOVE it.
