Clara (on our way to an ultrasound a few weeks ago): We’ll see the baby?
Mommy: Yes, they use a wand to see into my tummy and the baby will come up on a screen.
Clara: Is it a little hole in your tummy that I can peek in?
Clara (telling a story): And then she met a prince and they lived politely ever after.
Clara: Mom, I’m really sad because I love you and daddy and Burger and the baby.
Mommy: Why does that make you sad?
Clara: Because I don’t have enough arms to hug everyone at the same time.
Mommy: What do you want to name the baby if it’s a girl?
Clara: Pom Pom!
Mommy: And what about if it’s a boy?
Clara: You’re the best mommy ever because you have… FUNNY POWER!
Mommy: Oh yeah? And what power do you have?
Clara: I have…uh… SWEET POWER!

I’ll be the first to admit this video of Burger isn’t very exciting. But in so many ways it captures the way we see him everyday.
I was actually trying to take a picture of him, but accidentally had my phone on video mode. But I’m glad I took the clip because I’ve always wanted to capture what I call “Burger’s Wake-Up” routine. This isn’t all of it – there are multiple rounds of yawning, stretching to the front, stretching to the back, rigorous shakes, and, um, some licking – but in case I never get the whole bit on camera, at least I’ll have this. You know, so we’ll always remember that yawning is a full facial event for him.
