Oscar has discovered the thrill of '80s one-hit wonders Lipps Inc. Can you blame the kid?

Oscar is a cheap smile and expensive laugh. The kid spends two-thirds of the day smiling, and doesn't give much of a hoot about what.
Lamps? Awesome. Ladies in the super market? Hey there, momma. Ceiling fans? Now, you're talking. A poster frame? C'est magnifique.
It's fun to see. But we've noticed lately that to get O really chuckling takes more than simply walking into the room. Sure, that'll generate a grin. But for a full-on, tell me another one-liner Henny Youngman, that takes some work.
Which is why we don't have a lot of video of that yet. But we do have video of him smiling and chatting a lot, so that's what we're posting.

Last year, we fulfilled a promise to Will and honored his memory with the Walk for Will and Hope, a 2-mile leisurely trek to raise money for the Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Foundation. We didn't know what to expect, fumbled our way through and were knocked over by the reception, raising more than $6,000 for the foundation.

Baby Boy is here. Still no name yet, but everything else is hunky dory. He came at 1:08 at 6 lbs., 1 oz and 19 1/2 inches. Red hair, long arms, long legs and oh-so-fine. Big sister met him about 5 wearing her special T shirt and seemed fairly curious. Then her toys beckoned.

One day, about a year ago, Hope decided to cruise. Seemingly out of nowhere, she put one hand over another, moved her feet and scampered across an ottoman.
One day, a few weeks ago, Hope realized she didn't need the ottoman. She let go of her push cart and started walking excitedly to Mo.
Since then, her confidence is increasing and she's taking more steps on her own. At therapy this week, Hope walked about a dozen or more steps. Now, she's walking a bit more every day, even if she still resembles a drunken sailor.
We're awfully proud.

Hope has taken to her crib. When she was much smaller, she hated being put to sleep. It was a true endurance test. We'd read to her, fill her with Pediasure, rock her 'til we nearly dropped and pray for the best. She usually didn't fall for it. The moment we put her in the crib, her back would stiffen, she'd begin to wail and we'd have to start all over.

Say this about Hope: She has no problems amusing herself.
The girl finds a lot of stuff funny. Her rings? Hilarious. Mo's big pregnant belly? As good as a pie in the face of a clown and more fun to grab and pat. Her bottle? Mamma Mia. Hours of entertainment.

Along the way, she has to stop at the refrigerator to rearrange the magnets and even sample a few:
Then it's off to the dishwasher to rearrange the cups (and sip out of a few; yes, they're dirty. And yes, I'm a bad mom. But she likes the cups!), bang the door to the garbage and bang whatever cupboard within reach:
