Birthday and all that jazz

Big stuff. Hope turned three. She's pulling herself to a stand — as we learned last weekend when we came in to her room and found her cruising in her crib — and Oscar is nearly sitting. More on that later.

And now, an Oscar video

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.
