Really they are 7 months old tomorrow....but I have time today to post, who knows what tomorrow will bring
Things have gotten easier but also harder in some aspects, although the last couple of days has gotten better.....knock on wood!
Mandy has fed herself 3 puffs. She started this a couple days ago. She is still trying to do it but doesn't have the pincher grasp down just yet so most of the time they don't make it into her mouth. She is shaking her head "no" clapping and says "Da-Da". I have asked her to say "Ma-Ma" and she will shake her head no. She is a card. Super funny and always happy.
Emily is sitting up unassisted now....not nearly as well as Mandy but is getting better by the day. She is doing much better in the sleep department. Last night she went to bed at 5:30....early I know. She slept 12 hours and got up once for a bottle. Because she went to bed so early at 5am she was ready to start her day. I gave her a bottle and she did go back to bed till almost 7.
Its fun to see them both sitting up. They will sit and play while I fold laundry or quickly do errands.
Any toy that Emily has Mandy WILL take. Never fails. Reaches over and pulls it out of Emily's hand and Emily will just look at her. I wonder how long that will last till she screams in protest.
Mandy will even try to take the IPad from Cassie. So funny to see her do this.
Some days I am surviving by the hour but other days are easy. I wish they would take better naps....that would help. The days they only take 30 min naps is a killer. The nights Matt does not get home till late and I do bedtime by myself is a killer. Those are the days I need a nice glass of wine at the end of the day.
I know I've said this before, its definitely hard work but its also the biggest blessing to raise 2 babies. Life is such a miracle and to be given two lives to mold and raise is an amazing blessing. Some days I have to remind myself of this fact when I'm ready to bang my head against a wall! Ha
