Flaps, Kicks, and Giggles

In addition to being able to entertain herself for long periods of time:

Alena is loads of fun to play with:

As you can see in the first video, she's working on learning to fly, just like in one of her daddy's favorite movies, Chicken Run. She's also learning to wave, although at the moment it looks a bit more like "gimme gimme!" She just wants to be able to see the fingers moving since that's the fun part. You've had your whole life to see fingers moving, so just give her a chance for once. Sometimes she sits and talks to herself and rearranges the toys around her for several minutes. I know someone else who would organize his toys and thought it was entertaining... Although the defining characteristics of Alena's organization are not apparent to her parents.

The last few videos are a poor representation, because she's never quite as fabulously hilarious when the camera is out. On the last one she had been giggling for quite some time, but we only got 10 seconds before she was tired of being tickled.

She is SO cute! I'm impressed that she waves. Whenever I try to show Jake how to wave he just gives me a weird look :)

What a little sweet heart! I LOVE that belly laugh. You can't help but smile when you hear it.

Hazel would like to know, "Why is she so cute?" We watched the top video and the last video where she's just laughing. Henry started laughing too. She is a cute baby!

What a great laugh! Is she always ticklish?

No, she's not always this ticklish. She inherited the greatly-desired skill of being able to turn her ticklishness on & off from her mother. I wish I had that.
