What Is That?!

The other morning I was feeding Kenna an early breakfast. (She had awakened before the rest of the family.) I was puzzled to find that she was not very interested in her cereal. Instead, she kept looking down at her tray and moving her hands in a strange manner. Finally it dawned on me what she was doing...I had turned on the light above the dining room table, and as that was the only light in the otherwise dark room, it was casting a shadow from the spoon onto her tray. Kenna was trying to grab the shadow!

I couldn't help it--I kept moving the spoon and watching her utterly confused expression, and I just laughed out loud. Of course I grabbed the camera to take a video of the adventure. I had to then move the spoon with my left hand while holding the camera with my right, but you can still get a good chuckle out of watching this...



Ever see a cat trying to catch the red dot of a laser pointer?! That's what Kenna reminded me of!

That is so funny!! Evan's first experience with a shadow was after he had started walking. I found him dancing back and forth, trying to catch his shadow on the wall. :)

That is pretty amazing to watch. That was one of my favorite things as a mom, to see "when the lights went on". It is so interesting to see.
