Just when we thought that our plate was full in life, God dished us up some dessert!

What we've been up to...in picture form

We rented a 35 foot RV, pulled along a pop-up camper to
head out east to Philly for a Muller family reunion.
We stopped at my brothers.
The Stasinator struck.
Ouch. Expensive lamp!

Ricky texting and driving the RV...bad choice Ricky!
The boys awake.
The boys NOT awake...Joy!
Ricky chilling on mom's lap.

 Ocean City, NJ


FREEDOM AT LAST!!!!!!
Down town Philly a bunch of first cousins.
That's a lot of chocolate...Hershey Park.






Five for Fighting Concert.I have never seen Ricky so happy. I wish I could have bottled the excitement and joy he had. He knew every song and rocked all night.



Ricky, talking to Ter (Esther...our friend and old babysitter). He does this a lot.

Breakthrough!

So, yesterday, Stas started copying all of the signs I was teaching him. Mom. Dad. Water. Milk. More. Eat. Yes. No. Drink. He even copied every silly movement I made. Kiss your arm. Kiss your finger. Kiss your foot. Poke you chin. Poke you nose.

He copied them! 

That is HUGE!

Today when I got him out of bed, I said, "Mama is here." And....

he signed "MOM"!!!!!!

All by himself :-)  Isn't that sweet?

Every now and then he will sign drink or eat or more on his own. That was all.

Now, look how he is copying the game-playing that the girls are doing with Ricky and him. 
And then, 
for the FINALE
just as the clip ends, he SAYS....

Watch and find out.

Don't miss it!!!!



Did you hear it?

He SAID "mama." 

All smiles here!

What a nutty boy!

As you may have noticed, Ricky is an entertainer. Not only does he entertain us, but apparently himself as well. The camera on the computer was on and this is what we captured. 

Excuse the mess...this was the day after we returned from a 10 day trip in an RV with 10 people. 

Okay, weird the timing is off and it took a three minute video and turned it into 50 seconds....oh well, almost funnier. I think you get the point.
