I started practicing the art of clapping with Paul very early. We went to story hour when he was 2 months old and then practiced every day. Every single day. Friday night we went to the high school basketball game. Paul was enamored with the noise, the movement, the tall players. He was standing on my lap to ensure he could see everything when a group of girls from my class approached. As these girls walked by they let out some "oohs" and "ahhs" because baby Paul is obviously so cute. What does Paul do in response? Start clapping. I guess the young cute ladies will always win.
