Happy week 35 – which I say with a bit of sarcasm as we’ve entered our 6th leap which means we are facing a few weeks of crankiness, less sleep and supposedly less eating but I have yet to see that one 🙂 Just before we started this leap, though, Abby slept through the night for the first time and two nights in a row! (Now I think this was to prepare us for what was to come.)

Miles is the proud new owner of 5 teeth, which is technically 6 but the 5th and 6th haven’t quite fully broken through yet. No signs from miss Abby yet but that’s ok because I kind of like her toothless grin. Not much progress on the crawling even though I often put them on the floor on their bellies with something just out of reach and tell them to “go get it”. Just like the dogs, they don’t listen. 🙂

An interesting (and admittedly slightly annoying) new thing I’ve seen is they seem like they are getting a bit testy. Once, when the milk hadn’t come down yet and Miles wasn’t happy about it, he let me know by bellowing out not a cry, but a VERY unhappy scream. I can kind of imagine the baby version of Veruca Salt yelling, “but I want it NOOOOOOW!!!!”. They can be playing happily, but if I walk by too closely, one cries. If I pick up one, sometimes the other cries. By the end of this, I am going to have Hulk arms. That’s cool, as long as I don’t turn green.

Anyway, I often feed them in bed in the morning and eat my own breakfast while they do. I can no longer do this, because they stop drinking wanting oatmeal. Even if I wait, they still want oatmeal, so I am now sharing my breakfast :). One day soon I’ll be eating in the bathroom.

On my end, I actually started reading a new book, which is something I haven’t done in quite awhile.  I discovered that Jodi Picoult had written a new book and since I’ve read and loved just about every one she’s written, of course I had to read it (and so far it has been awesome as well). I was sick over the weekend (yuck) and still can’t exercise let alone run, but my back/butt at least feels much better (a more thorough update on that to come).

Not many pictures this week, sorry. But better some than none!

  • Abby gets friendly with her inner hungry caterpillar
The baby girl, much like the caterpillar, was still hungry

  • Miles (now out of his sleep suit), sports a new sack
I call it the "baby in a bag"

  • Miles insists that I rest, and not do laundry
I will sleep on you, and ONLY you
I will sleep on you, and ONLY you
  • And grows a strange obsession (Abby too) with non toy objects (I swear all babies really need are phone cords, hair, cardboard boxes and in our case, the edges of the alphabet mat).
Toys? Who needs toys?
