Clap Clap - Pat Pat

Ellie's latest things to do are to pat whoever is holding her or nearby. We'll say, "Pat Pat Brother" and she'll just pat his face or arm or leg. She does "pat pat" to people, animals, photos, pretty much anything.

And today, she finally learned how to clap. Since she came home she has been fascinated with the cheerleaders at Joshua's basketball games (stay tuned this weekend for photos from his team's game). I've always "helped" her clap with them. When she first came home, her hands were little fists that I would just clap together. Slowly, they opened a little and now they are fully open and trying oh so hard to make the clapping noise. Here is a photo of her taken tonight as she sat there just clapping and smiling.

And, hopefully, there's a short video of her doing it below.

Wow, isn't she learning so much! I think she is precocious!
