Well the cutie patooties are doing well. They are masters of walking now. They baaarely crawl anymore and if they do it's only for a few strides. They started picking toys up and carrying them places lately. So now they're multi-tasking walkers!!
We had another case of the sniffles lately that seemed to last a little longer than I would have hoped. Jake is popping in his upper teeth so now he'll have more than just his bottom 2. Jonah still stands firm at 4 on top and 3 on the bottom. Jake has started this new thing where he will purse his lips together and out like he's going in for a kiss, while shutting his eyes and doing what I like to call a "fake whimper". It's really cute and kind of pathetic all at the same time...already finding out how to be dramatic! Jonah on the other hand has still got this ridiculously high pitched squeel that has yet to stop. He will be the center of attention!
Both boys are getting better at their pincher grasp. They are picking up food and self feeding some at meal times...and then there is the picking up of everything else they can find that is even hard to see with the naked eye. It is amazing to watch them eyeball a TINY piece of fuzz and watch their thought process motion them forward to pick it up.
Their verbal skills are picking up too. I'm starting to wonder if "maa" means mom. And I've heard a few "daa"s in there too. They seem to say "maa" a lot when I get home. Some of my favorites times of the day are when I get them up from sleeping or when I get home and see their faces light up as I'm coming towards them. Those times make me forget about all the bad that is going on in the world and focus on those two amazing faces who just want to be in your arms. It's just precious!!
I took a few pics of the boys next to their Grandmother's christmas tree. I would love to tell you they're actually helping to put the ornaments on the tree but actually it's just the opposite. Oh well...at least the photos are precious. :)
Our two monkeys!!
