Pulling up!

Last Monday I was in the living room playing with the Wondertwins. I went to hang up the phone... when I turned around Monkey Boy was standing! He had pulled up on the coffee table. I got a bit of video before he plopped down. I tried to get him to do it again, but he wouldn't.

Today, the babies went down for their nap rather late. The fussed and fought. I decided to separate them so they could fall asleep easier. I hadn't been gone but about 5 minutes. I went in to see Monkey hanging over the side of the crib trying to reach the strap of a toy hanging in Frog's crib!!! Had I not gone in, he probably would have tumbled out!!!!

So, tonight the Hubby and I had to lower his mattress. He is now about 1ft lower than his sister. However, he is safe... For NOW! lol

AND THAT is why we call him Monkey!!!!

You can't help but smile when you look at these two munchkins. They crack me up!

This was on our trip to the beach at the end of October. It was the Wondertwins first visit. I love this family picture!

The big C

I found out last night... my dad has cancer. My Daddy... one of my best friends... the person I have shared the most with... one of the people I am closest to... one of the most important persons in my life... has cancer. It is prostate cancer. I hear... if you are going to get cancer, that is the kind to have. It is one of the most easily treated. For that I am grateful.

He is my Daddy. I have looked up to him forever. It feels like a brick hit me. He is a fighter. He will be fine. I know he will. He is my Daddy... he has cancer... and he will be fine.

We have a crawler!

As of last week Monkey Boy officially became a crawler. He had been doing the one hand/one elbow/one knee/one foot scoot for a couple of weeks. Then, last Tuesday he just figured it out. Now he is on the go!!!! His favorite thing to do is chase the dogs.

Better watch out puppies... he is getting faster every day!

It's a family thing

Monkey boy woke many times through the night. He is sporting a runny nose this morning. Little frog is coughing. I think I have shared my cold. This is one time I DIDN'T want to share with them! Hopefully, breast feeding will help them get better quick!

Somehow I caught a cold. I am breastfeeding the Wondertwins. So, I have to rely on fluids, vitamins, and rest. I am trying to get a ton of all three. I am so stuffy and have a runny nose (how these can go together is beyond me!). My eyes are itchy and I can't stop sneezing.

Being sick with babies sucks. You just want to curl up with a box of tissues and sleep. I'm sure a ton of cold meds would help too. Instead I change diapers between nose blowing and drink orange juice as I nurse. I am hoping to nap when they nap.

Lord help me survive!

Wondertwin's milestones

So, we have some big steps. Monkey boy finally has two teeth sprouting up. The bottom left one was felt last Sunday. The bottom, front, right tooth was felt the following day.

In addition, he all of a sudden started making consonant sounds today! On the way to the vet he kept saying, "Mamamama... Bababab... Gu Gu". I was so excited to hear him!

Little Frog started sitting up on her own for long periods yesterday. She and Monkey like to play with a little piano. She sat for about 30 minutes playing with it!

She also stretches her mouth horizontally and says, "Yaya ya ya ya ya". It is so cute... especially with those two little bottom teeth.

They are getting so big!
