Brody's table and a video

We recently bought Brody a little table. We thought it would be great for coloring and working puzzles as well as occasionally eating at it. He loves it! I don't think he as ever sat as long during a meal as he has at his new table. We move it to the kitchen when he eats. Here he is eating breakfast at it in the living room. He was watching 'Franklin' while he ate. :) Since Jillian will be needing a high chair in the next couple of months, we decided to start transitioning Brody out of his high chair.
We have bar stool chairs at our kitchen table so we may just get him a booster type seat for our table so he can eat at the table, but until then, he is loving having meals at this little table. I met some friends from MOPS at Panera this morning. I put Jillian in her room with a few toys while I got dressed. Brody wanted to go in and play with her so I told him that was fine. He ended up getting out all of her toys and then hoarding them. :) I was going through some videos on my computer today and found this one of Brody and Jillian. This was when she was 5 or 6 days old. Brody wanted to hold her while he watched tv. It's amazing to me that our busy boy could actually sit this still and be so calm and gentle while holding his new sister! Brody was getting his two year molars at this time so he chews his finger the entire video. Love teething! Ha!
