oh, these babies have stolen my heart.
i am so in love with them. their chubby legs, soft skin, their "ba ba ba ba ba bas".
i have started making baby food. and can someone please tell me why i didn't do it before now? it's so easy. and so much cheaper. and they LOVE it! their favorite so far is a recipe that consists of sweet potatoes,white beans, and cinnamon.
we still GO everywhere, every day. we get stopped about every 3 feet and we love it. well i do, the bigs do, and lucy (the grinner) does. cate? gives the suspicious one over+the stink eye.
i think she might take after her daddy that one.
they have started sharing a really really funny dynamic. one of them is always poking or grabbing at the other one. lucy is really good natured about it (see video for proof). cate? not so much. here's her reaction:
i have to tell you that photo above makes me laugh out LOUD every single time i look at it. the look on lucy's face? HAHAHAHAHHAAHA. this is the best photo ever.
teeth: none. but lots of slobber.
party trick: sucking on EVERYTHING. sitting in a straddle and leaning down until she is pretty much doing the splits. blowing spit bubbles.
clothing size: can fit into some 12 mos things. mostly 9 mo.
favorite food: not this one
favorite toy: crinkly book
favorite sound: her sisters voices
happy time: right after she's eaten
favorite joke to play on mommy: poop up the back. several times a day. always in the jumparoo.
personality: happiest baby in the world.
weight: unknown, but still about 2 lbs less than miss sack o' potatoes.
teeth: none. but copious drool.
party trick: rocking back and forth and scooting like an inchworm. all the way across the room, in the blink of an eye.
clothing size: can still fit into random pieces of 3-6 mos.
favorite food: sweet potatoes
favorite toy: sophie the giraffe
favorite sound: music
happy time: when mama is holding her
favorite joke to play on mama: see lucy's favorite trick.
personality: she studies everyone. you can't win her over as quickly as you can win lucy over. she gets her feelings hurt easily.
here is my favorite video ever of them. they are so funny together! ignore the fact that i completely drop the phone at the end. sorry in advance for any motion sickness!
