New wagon, and more singing

Jeff finished assembling TongJie's new Radio Flyer wagon (an awesome gift from the Wenatchee music teachers!) yesterday morning, so of course we took it out for a spin.  When we first put TongJie in the wagon to let him try it out in the house, he looked slightly concerned.

Soon, though, he was waving to me as Jeff pulled him around the house.  Then we went outside and he had lots of fun going fast.  Jeff was having fun, too.

After TongJie's nap yesterday, I pulled him around the backyard in his wagon for a long time.  Our backyard is a lot bumpier than the street, but he seemed to enjoy going fast over the bumps.

I posted a video a few days ago of TongJie singing.  Since then, he's been singing a little bit off and on when he thinks of it, but not as much as Tuesday evening.  Usually it's when he sees his "microphone" laying around that he picks it up and starts singing until he loses interest and casts it aside.  Yesterday evening, I had a Benny Goodman CD playing and TongJie picked up his microphone to sing along.  He went up to Albert, who was sitting on my lap, and held the microphone to him, trying to get him to sing too.  Albert thought it was a good opportunity to lick TongJie's face instead.  I took a short video clip of it.  His singing is hilarious - it sounds like he's trying to imitate the trumpet.  I think the funniest thing to me is the serious, earnest look on his face when he sings.  Apparently TongJie takes his singing very seriously.

That's all for now . . . TongJie woke up from his nap and had his bottle and we're getting ready to go out for a walk.  Maybe we'll take the wagon!
