Brent cut the grass and began pressure washing the house. So, the babies and I were left to watch and play on our own for the day...
Mary Louise is more and more busy each day. She pulls up on truly absolutely anything. Rather than fussing if I walk off, she simply crawls after me - usually quietly. When she catches up, she pulls up to a stand on my pants leg, grins up from between my knees, and sometimes - well pretty often - LETS GO! Ha - fearless little one. She is absolutely desperate to walk!
David is suddenly happy about his progress with crawling. He seems to have realized that doing so would in fact give him some independence where toys and puffs are concerned and is practicing more and more. He hasn't gained any weight over the past couple of weeks, but I weighed him yesterday and he was up 5 ounces! Wonderful! So that makes him 11 pounds 10 ounces. Mary Louise is 12 pounds 14 ounces. Always maintaining their 1 pound gap...
We had a really wonderful day cheering Daddy on with his toils and playing outside in the front yard. Mary Louise and David ate a full half of an avocado, 3/4 of a fresh pear, and 6 servings of purees between them - not counting the breast milk and cereal! By the end of all that, WE were the ones in need of pressure washing! They also played in a large Tupperware container which I filled with water and toys. It was really a grand time! The flowers are all in bloom here. There are bugs and lizards and butterflies everywhere to look at - so much to explore!
By the end of the day the little ones were so tired that they went off to bed at their old 6pm bedtime! They've had a decent night so far and we hope for more fun in the morning!
