8 months!

Along with the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Day we celebrated the girls 8 months of life. I won't get into the whole rant of the time flying by but you can see for yourself. I can hardly keep up with this blog!

Unlike their other monthly milestones Jorge & I got to spend the day at home with them to celebrate their 8 months. At this point the girls are still scooting around on their bellies and use their arms on occasion to move around. They love flipping over, not on the floor, but on the changing table when you need them to stay still & face up. For some reason they use their diaper changes to explore all the small things around them. They sit up on their own pretty well on their own now. So much that, the girls have decided life on their bottoms are MUCH better then lying around on your back. They really enjoy their excersaucer & this little walker that rolls around an activity table...the smile on their faces tells it all. Independence!

This month we introudced Cati & Val to the big girl tub. They enjoy bath time much more now that they can play with toys and sit up on their own & they can also play with each other err take toys from each other. YIKES!

Food-wise..the world is their oyster! But no big chunks mom! They eat a wide array of foods so long as the chunks are not too big or stringy. Go figure, already they're developing their preferences.

Here they're eating french fries. Before you cringe at what I'm subjecting my children to please note that these are organic & baked not fried. Clearly Cati preferred to play with her wiggly fries...and Val (no surprise) decided good food should not be wasted as you can barely see the fry in her hand & in her mouth!
Never a dull moment.

Sounds like you're doin' a great job! For my girls first year of life I FORCED myself to sit down and write about them at least once a month. Most of the time that's really the best I could do, so don't be too hard on yourself for not blogging regularly! :)
