Fab 5 Friday

What made my week so fabulous, you ask???

1) We met the Borders twins at the park for a play date on Friday. The girls had a blast on the swings, and they got to experience the feel of GRASS for the first time. I hope this is the first of many such dates to come!

2) The girls are FEEDING THEMSELVES!

3) I am coping with the MESS of the girls feeding themselves! :)

4) The girls continue to embrace baby sign language. It often takes only a couple of times of me showing them a new sign before they’ve got it. What’s hilarious, though, is when they hear a word they know in a different context, and they start to sign. We were practicing “Blow kisses!” today (not the best example of baby sign language, but that’s OK). Later, I was looking out the window with them, and I noted how the wind was blowing. And there they went, blowing kisses to the wind!

5) The girls have become enthralled with the birds in the backyard. It’s proven an almost endless source of entertainment over the past few days. They love to stand at the window and point and flap their arms (the baby sign for “bird”). They also wave to the cute is that?!!!

Hi Mandy! So nice to "meet" you! I am so glad to hear that you enjoy our crafts - my girls and I love doing crafts.
It is a very small world - I live in Hayden which is near Oneonta. I grew up in Adamsville (Jefferson Co.) but we moved to Hayden a few years ago before starting our family. How awesome! Alabama is a great place to live, I agree.
Your daughters are precious! Thank you for visiting my blog and I can not read more about you and your daughters.
Thanks again for visiting my blog!

Hi Mandy - thanks for visiting my blog. Your writing is hilarious - oesophagus?! My twins try to feed themselves and I allow them a little bit at each meal. Bits of fig newtons for breakfast, pieces of egg whites for lunch, snacks etc. I dread cleaning them up after so I just spoon feed their main meals.
