This Growing Up Thing is Kinda Cool

I learned a new trick!

Maybe I should back up. One of my most favoritest games in the world is to grab my sock* or rope (tug-tug) or whatever and have mama or grampa or mamama pull on the other end. I'm really strong so it's fun for them too. We could do this for hours, seriously.

Last weekend mama made me drop my sock, then told me to sit in front of her, then she threw the sock at me. Not hard or anything -- it just kinda floated towards me -- and would you believe IT FELL IN MY MOUTH!


She got really excited and we've been doing this ever since. Last night she called it "catch" and I can grab my sock outta the air from three or four feet away. Mamama was talking about trying a ball next, and I can't wait!

The only thing I think I'm doing wrong is I keep trying to catch the sock with my feet. Mama said I can't do that, but that's how SHE catches things, so I don't see why I shouldn't do that too...

*They finally caved and gave me my own sock. I guess they realized it was futile to resist my powers.

That is so cool that you're playing catch!! Do you bring her back the sock when you are done?

I do!! I even let go most of the time.
