Catching Cookies

Ready to Catch some Cookies, Henry?

Ready
Henry: "Ready!"

One… Two… Three…


Catch!

Missing Cookies
Henry: "Oops! Jumped to high. Try again."

One… Two… Three…


Catch!

Missing Cookies
Henry: "Oops! Forgot to open my mouth."

(sigh)

That's OK sweetie.

I'm sure it's my aim.

Let's give Zachary a chance.

The Cookie-Catching Master Awaits

Zachary: "Chooooommmm…"

Zachary: "….ppppppp"

I have two other pictures that were virtually identical the shot above.

That is, I clicked the remote just a fraction of a second two late.

It does reveal, however, how remarkably consistent his catching style is.

As I've mentioned before, Zachary excels at this game.

Henry? Not so much.

I think Zachary only missed one Cookie, and Henry caught just one or two - and only after I moved closer.

In his defense, my aim is terrible as I'm also holding the camera remote in the other hand, and multi-tasking aim/tossing the Cookie and aim/clicking the remote - the actions of when are slightly out of phase - first the toss, then the click.

Henry has a much higher Catch Percentage - even if I'm across the room - when all I'm doing is tossing the Cookie.

That said, Zachary seems to manage it just fine.
