I cannot believe that next month the little dragons will be a year old. Where has the time gone? A year ago we were holding our breath that we would bring home two healthy babies, and not a day goes by that I don't think about how fortunate we are.
The babies are on the move and changing fast. Here's a synopsis of what they are into right now.
Maisie: moving, army crawling, rocking on hands and knees, clothes, colors - especially bright blue, eating puffs and bananas, helping out, screaming, hairstyles, her hammer, balls, piano, and bead toys, getting into things she shouldn't, the "boingy" thing on the wall in the kitchen, sleeping on her tummy, pulling James's hair, crawling over James as if he were an inanimate object, sharing, raspberries, being in control, being wild, picking on anything Giraffe (it's a love / hate relationship), screaming at birds, splashing like crazy in the bath, plastic bags, finding minuscule things on the carpet to eat, and being Houdini.
James: rolling, clapping, pounding on things, throwing toys, banging toys together, laughing and giggling, his shark shirt, reading, the ABC book by Dr Seuss, the piano, eating, cuddling, soft things, bothering Maisie, pulling wipes out of the container, bath time, laughing at words beginning with S (like "Shark Shirt"), talking up a storm, playing Roll and Dive Bomb, music, high fives, raspberries, sharing, being observant, tickles, wild hair, talking to Daddy, his keys, puppy, winkel, and rings toys, hoarding toys, plastic bibs, fresh food from the Baby Bullet, and laugh wars.
We will be planning a 1st birthday party for the little dragons and it will likely be the weekend of June 22nd. Details to come!
