This week, your Daddy went on a trip with some of his family, and so it was just the three of us for five days. I've got to tell you, I was scared at the thought of it! But, I have been so pleased and thankful that you girls are so good! You sleep so well and you keep your routines so well, that we breezed through those five days. (With some help, of course!)
Lots of developments have been going on! Here's some highlights:
-Macy, you have a shoe fetish! Ever day when I come home from work, at some point you go to Krissy or Jessica's shoes, and (it takes work) you stand in them. You look adorable in them and you love it so much!
-You celebrate EVERYTHING with clapping and a "yay"! Mrs. Tanja taught you to do that and it is hilarious. Recently, we were at Kroger and you were clapping in honor of the lady scanning our groceries. She was too young to appreciate how cute that was. :)
-You love music SO much! Last night at Grandaddy's, he turned on the CD that has all your favorite songs, like "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" and "Patty Cake Patty Cake".....you smiled the biggest smiles you could....cocked your head to the side....and then the other side....in a way so cute that it looks 'fake'......and you did your arms up and down.....swayed side to side.....you really enjoyed 'dancing'.
-Molly you counted to THREE night before last! I was counting "one, two, three" over and over and then, one time, I said, "one........" and you said "two, tree" I was SHOCKED and thrilled and excited! I called your Daddy who had a hard time believing it! But, the next day, you remembered it!!! WOW!!
-Your new word is "toe". And you say it with a depth to your voice (mixed with sweetness and the fact that you drag it out) that makes me laugh. I love it!
-I love that you will take my finger and put it on certain pictures in a book. It makes me feel so connected to you...like you're communicating with me on a different level.
-You continue to pretend to wash your hands in your new little kitchen sink. Yesterday, you did it about five times....you'd put your hands under the play faucet.....rub them together....walk away rubbing them together.....and then go back for more "water".
Both of you are learning new words all the time....and one of my absolute favorite things that you do is sit with a book, and point to pictures, look at me and say "uh uh uh uh" - meaning "what's the word for this"? When I tell you the word, you relax and look satisfied. I love that. Watching your vocabulary develop and your handling of books evolved has been SUCH a treat.
Apparently, you both know a version of Morse Code, too! In your footed pajamas, one of you will start 'messaging' the other by rubbing the texture on the feet of your pjs. The other one will respond. It is so funny!
Last night, we got all ready and were going to see Grandaddy. You both get very excited when I tell you we're going "bye bye" and I have a hard time leaving one of you in the house while I take the other one to the car (because you stand at the door and cry pitifully). So, last night, I took you both outside to get in the car. (I do this a lot....but some attempts go smoother than others.) Last night, anybody watching got free entertainment. You both went running in opposite directions...so excited...having no idea the panic you gave me ... you don't understand about cars driving by..... even as I'm typing this...I'm getting scared!
Both of you have a HILARIOUS word for "pacifier". I know I can't spell it....but, basically, it sounds like if you say "goun gounk" with your mouth closed. It is so funny to me!!! I think that word means both pacifier and blanket to y'all.
Here are some more pictures from the holidays......
