Almost every time the babies wake up, whether its in the morning or after a nap, Bryan has started saying “every time they wake up, they are different”.
There is a lot of truth to this. Miles is pulling up to standing on his own (using a toy or the baby gate) and has started cruising a little along the ballapalooza. It’s Abby’s turn now to get up on her knees, though she hasn’t made any more standing attempts since the straddle split incident of last week. Since she seems to be the social one I’m trying to teach her to say “mama” but she keeps responding with “dadadadadadada” or “hi”. She now has two teeth with a third pushing through on the top and has started doing this super cute smile where she scrunches up her nose.
Miles has been a bit of a mama’s boy this week – he just wants me to hold him or sit him on my lap. He’s started to respond to his name by making this funny grunting noise that sounds an awful lot like “huh?”and they’ve both started doing this thing where they are trying to squeal on an inhale. It’s difficult to explain and I haven’t been able to get it on video yet. Miles appears to be pretty proud of his ability to stand because he’ll often scream in victory afterwards. I think that Abby understands “come here” since she followed me out of the bathroom yesterday, but that could also be because she just didn’t want to be in the bathroom alone with the lights off. Hard to say.
We are starting to get to a point where they will both sit and listen to me read a short book. They still love to give me and the entire bathroom a free shower while they take a bath.
This week sucked sleep wise but for that I blame yet another round of viruses that somehow goes from baby to baby to me and skips Bryan. We also took our first trip to the Flowertown Festival where, we were naturally the center of a lot of attention until we were one upped by a set of triplets. (Blasphemy!)
Of course, they still LOVE food.
Now, onto everyones (at least mine anyway) favorite part:
- Abby makes the most of a stuck situation
- Miles stands up for himself
- He finds some creative ways to sleep
- He gets cold feet
- Abby plays some hide and seek
- And swears if I take the pacifiers, she’ll survive somehow
- For those who just INSIST they can’t tell my BOY/GIRL twins apart, I’ll let you in on a little secret
- Finally, Miles gives me his mommy grade for the day

I look forward to the day when we no longer have to baby proof the whole house.

LOL! Too funny this week! My niece is like 9 or 10 months and she is so close to walking it’s a bit freaky! She is very deliberate in her movements and pulls up like a champ and walks along holding onto anything she can! I think she’s also self weaning, my sister said that it’s all she can do to get her to nurse! My sister wants to make it to a year, but this little girl loves her real food! The twins look great! My sister also has boy/girl twins, but fortunately I could always tell them apart 🙂

This makes me miss that age! They’re so adorable and squishy! We have that same alphabet letter mat. They won’t leave it together for more than 13 seconds. Grrr…
