Here's the backstory: A couple of days ago, Emma wanted to watch a video of her friend, Matthew. After watching it a couple of times, as well as looking at several pictures on his website, I told Emma that Matthew had to go bye-bye and put the laptop away. She immediately burst into tears and continuously cried "My Matthew!" and (I think) "I love Matthew!" Of course, I let her watch the video again and then she was happy.

Yesterday, I thought I would videotape her watching Matthew's video so that Andy could see her say "My Matthew (it was very sweet!)." I couldn't find my video camera, so I set up the
built-in video camera on the laptop and split the screen, like this:

Well, apparently, seeing two babies was too much for her and she was pretty confused. She didn't say anything. However, she did do something that we have never taught her: she shrugged in confusion. It's amazing what kids learn on their own!

P.S. Brad, if you are reading this, please know that you have a very loyal following at our house. And I mean a several times a day loyal following. Please don't ever give up your blog...the world just might stop if we can't see "My Mau-Mau" in action!
