Great Feet of Strength

Ok, I know you guys are ALL thinking it, so let me say this first: yes, I am aware there is a typo in my title. It is a callback to "Robin Hood: Men In Tights," not an exemplar of my stupidity.

Now that that's out of the way, I'll move onto the purpose of this blog, which is mainly to show off my little buddy! He is getting so big and strong so fast I almost can't believe it.

Here I will show you two videos that showcase his feat of physical strength and mental leaps.

I highly recommend you set the video to the highest resolution you can to optimize Sander's adorableness and your viewing pleasure. :) If you are unsure how to do that, here are some instructions:

1. Look at the bottom of the video where it lists the length of the video.
2. Locate the resolution setting which will probably be set at the crappiest resolution it can offer, 240p.
3. Click on the 240p button and select the highest quality of video you can, 780p or 1080p.

Now that you have good resolution, here is the first video, showing Sander trying to put the binkie back into his mouth by himself:

Not only is this adorable, but this video shows what a smart guy he already is. He is developing his problem solving ability which most children don't really develop until after two years of age.

If a child runs a toy into an object and it gets stuck, they will probably just cry until their brain develops enough for them to think of reversing the process, i.e. moving the toy backwards, and freeing it.

Sander already sees the problem, "Hey! that binkie should be in my mouth and it is not!" and he tries to correct it, "If I can just grab it with my tongue, or get that dang arm to push it over closer to me, maybe I can get it in my mouth!" Of course, he succeeded by wasn't smart enough to start sucking on the binkie after he got his lips around it....maybe a half genius?

Next, for his physical feat of strength! Learning to control that head and work out those shoulders:

Yay for the little dood man! He is getting so big!

  1. Videos rock. You put the youtube links in the wrong order though. But it doesn't really matter cause Sander is the bomb.
