The Wedding Video

We just celebrated our sixth anniversary. Normally, you might watch your wedding video on that day, but not us. Why not? Because we watch the wedding video EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

That's right. Colin is obsessed with the wedding video. From the brides' preparations to the guests arriving to the dancing, and everything in between, he's seen it all, probably hundreds of times.

He likes to recognize people, laugh at Boppy's jokes during the welcome, or Uncle Bill's jokes during the toast. He also loves to watch Mommy dance to Brick House (I won't say having your preschooler watch you dance over and over is not a tad bit creepy), and he also, apparently, has every song from the reception memorized, which we realized tonight when he heard "Let's Hear it for the Boy" and immediately recognized it as "from the wedding video!"

Learning about Geography

Colin is, on some level, grasping geography. He likes to talk about how Nana and Boppy live in Ashland, Kentucky, and Uncle Davey is in Lexington, Kentucky. Every river is either the Ohio River, or the Colorado River. The beach is in South Carolina, and the Island of Sodor is across the ocean.

And then there's Indiana. In Indiana, you can see the real Thomas, and you can buy fireworks. That's not to be confused with India, where his "Auntie Andrea" lives.

What is more patriotic than signing a petition on Independence Day?
