Colin had an exciting afternoon last Friday playing with Nora and her friend Bella. Here he recounts this adventure over Saturday morning breakfast cereal.

Good grief, it’s a running gag.
Colin is a little under the weather today so we thought better of taking him swimming at Nora’s swim lesson. Instead, he and I went to the park and decided to go ride Caltrain for a while. We took train 424 southbound from San Mateo to Menlo Park where we got off, waved at the friendly engineer, and then took train 427 northbound back to Hayward Park. We had a blast!
No, that’s not a brontosaurus. What do you think this is, 1903?
I left my iPad unattended and Colin shot the following in-depth interview with himself.
Could there be a better time to film the baby than while he’s getting his diaper changed? Sure. But we don’t get to dictate when Colin feels like performing for the camera (which is almost never).
So he clearly says ‘apple’ and ‘ball’ and ‘yeah’, but he also signs “more” (at about the 26 second mark) to mean something like “okay, I gave that to you, now give it back”. He also clearly understands argument structure in sentences spoken to him, but this is less visible here.
Note that he doesn’t care to repeat words after me or Jen but he will very happily repeat them after Nora.
Then, of course, he has to have a big comedic finish.
Nora reads Colin one of his favorite books while he follows along in a completely different (but also excellent) book. Note the tactful product placement at the end.
Actually, no, I lie. This isn’t the absolute first time he walked, it’s more like the third. The first walk was longer but he was wearing nothing but a diaper at a time. The second walk was shorter and ended in crying. But the THIRD walk! The third walk was clothed and short and ended not in crying but in off camera giggling. Go watch!
