Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Fab 5 Friday

So what have I been up to this fabulous week in June?

1) ...”swimming” with the girls for the first time in their kiddie pool and gauging their different reactions to the new experience…and soaking up the adorableness of them in their pink plaid swimsuits…

2) …listening to the girls identify a long list of body parts, including “elbow” (new to the list this week)…and appreciating their baby-speak “bobo” as they reach one chubby arm around the other...

3) …seeing Baby A work so diligently at her stacking cups, absolutely determined to get them in order…and being so proud that she didn’t get frustrated with herself even though she didn’t exactly take the most direct route from beginning to end…

4) …hearing Baby B shout “Mommy” for the first time (as opposed to “Mama”), when calling me from another room…and rejoicing at the sweet sound…

5) …reading animal-themed books to the girls and having them point and sign and yell at each and every picture…and marveling at their participation and enjoyment…

…so many little things that just make my heart smile!

Thanks for commenting on my blog! It was great to hear from you.

Your girls are gorgeous and this blog is a wonderful way to remember all the big and little things that happen in their lives. I can't say I remember when my two held a cup for the first time... bad Mum!

I look forward to hearing more about Baby A and B.

Tiny still gets elbow and wrist confused. We play a game where I take a sticker and put it on a body part, and then I'll say, "On the (insert stickered body part here)". And then she'll take the sticker off and put it on a different body part and say, "On the (insert the new body part here)." It's a really simple game, but both of my kids get a big kick out of it. Sometimes they'll even put the sticker on me or one of their dolls. :o)

Hope you're having a great weekend!

We've been spending a lot of time in the kiddie pool too! Ms. L loves it...Ms.M, not so much!
