Turning a Page - Literally

I kid you not, last night I was reading a book to Ben and he started turning the pages all by himself! I had just finished reading the book when he reached his hand out towards it. Thinking maybe he wanted to turn a page, I separated one page from the previous one about an inch, and sure enough, he put his hand on the edge of the page and pushed it forward until it rested on the other side! We celebrated this feat with much fanfare, excitement and encouragement. But I thought it must be a fluke because it wasn't even on my radar that he might have already learned how to do this, so I tilted another page open, and sure enough, he reached his hand over to the backside of the page and pushed it all the way to the other side of the book. He repeated this over and over til we got through the entire book ... about 15 pages! I didn't have a camera or any witnesses, but tonight I would like for Jeff to film us to see if we can recreate this amazing sight!
