Family jeans be shakin

Tyler (nephew) update: it's been over a year since I've seen the little guy. (Last Tyler Post) Amazes me how fast he has grown and the difference between the last blog and this one. He can talk, barely, but often he engages in eye contact and mumbles nonsense like he is involved in the conversation. I'm sure it is something important and insightful, but we won't know for a little while.

Is dancing an instinct or learned behavior?
My conclusion is instinct. For example, you put a group of Weilands in a room, play a tune and all the sudden bodies are shaking, moving spastically and sometimes actually to a beat. Be warned, any nearby bystanders are often pulled involuntarily into the mix of rhythmic chaos. You can take most babies, play some music, they will shake their legs, and arms, but this is much more advance. With music on Tyler utilizes his head, arms, legs, forward, backward, sideways, even his toes are clapping. Tyler has shown a willingness to get-down behavior at the very young age of 1.8 years old. Therefore, he has the Weiland gene for dancing.

I bought a new mac (never thought I would) and edited a little video. Get down lil buddy!
