Basic Instinct

We were talking to a friend of ours the other day about how Island Boy claps his hands whenever he hears applause. He does this whether he hears it live, on TV or even simply audio. It's really quite charming.

I had never really thought about it before, but our friend pointed out that clapping is one of the most basic of human emotional reactions and that it crosses all cultures, all ages and all walks of life.

It's amazing what our children can teach us about the world and we never even have to leave home.

So true!!

My son loves to clap, too - he starts doing it whenever he hears it. :)

Island Boy is getting so big and CUTER all the time!!!! I'm glad you all are doing well.
