New bag of tricks

Connor's been learning a lot of new tricks this week. We've been trying to get Connor to clap for a while, but he really hasn't seemed to get it until now. Yesterday morning Daddy took Connor's hands and was clapping them together. Usually Connor makes his hands into little fists, and there's no clapping sound and he pulls his hands away. This time, he happened to open his hands and I swear I could just see it click in his brain.

He's been clapping like crazy since then, and it's ridiculously cute.

We couldn't get him to clap on camera today, but we finally got a video of him dancing. He's been doing it pretty often, but we haven't been able to get it on video. Maybe next week we'll get a video of him clapping.

He's also learned how to stand on his own, although he still has to stay near something to grab onto. He'll stand there for ten or more seconds at a time without holding onto anything. He doesn't seem to be interested in taking any steps to go anywhere, but his balance is fantastic.
