34 Weeks

All over the place. While Emma is still mostly using her upper body to get around, it does not slow her down.  And Sophia has added a sort of skip-propel move to her crawl that boosts her speed.  They must be practicing this in their crib during so-called nap time.  We are eating a lot of new food these days - turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving, and spaghetti last night.  Our food mill is hard at work most evenings.  We have a full day of cooking ahead of us for some future tummy adventures! 

 Crawling under things is so much fun!

 Our new favorite thing to do.  
Sophia started pulling herself up a few days ago and that is all she wants to do!

Just a few shots from this past week. I can't help but think back to last year when our thoughts were "Next Thanksgiving will be so different! The babies will be here!" Now, to have them here, we know that we couldn't have even imagined what it would be like.

 Up to no good. The little step we thought would slow them down, didn't.

Getting ready to pounce off of the chair.

Sophia on the go!

It was very bright!

Hand It to Us...

Poor S has her first bout with an illness. We thought it was teething, then her fever spiked, making us think perhaps it was an ear infection. She wouldn't let us lay her down, would scream for no apparent reason, and was not easily consoled. So, when the fever spiked last night we called the Dr., who told us to bath her and give her motrin to bring the fever down. We then followed instructions through a rough night, and took her in to the pediatrician this morning.

By the time we took her in, she had bumps all over her forearms, and around her knees.

What we thought might be an ear infection is now Hands, Foot, & Mouth Disease.


Now it's a countdown until E gets it. I'm trying to keep them separate as much as possible, but up until now they have been playing together and sharing (slobbering on) toys.

Boo. Yawn.
