This past weekend the babies turned 7 months old. It’s amazing to watch them grow and change. Everyday they learn something new. Lately while they have no interest in sitting up they are on a mission to get moving. In the past week they have taught themselves how to get their tushies up in the air and are rocking back and forth. For now all they do is kick their legs out behind them and belly flop. The goal of this new move is to go forward toward a toy that more than likely they just pushed out of their reach, but because of they way they push up on their hands they end up pushing themselves backward instead of forward. If we leave them on the floor unattended for a few minutes we come back to find babies who have backed themselves into opposite corners of the room or underneath the couch. Once they figure out how to move each hand or knee independently I’ve been told our lives will change in ways we never could imagine.
I know I say it every month, but how does the time go by so fast. These babies who reach for me when I come home from work, or squeeze my face to give me a big kiss, and hold their own bottles are so different from the little babies who screamed like crazy when we made them spend time on their tummy just a few months ago.
We are having so much fun with them there really are no words to describe it. So here are the new pictures.
