Time to vacuum.

Someone is army crawling. Mostly one-armed. But she's on the loose now.

The same baby daughter is obsessed with carbs. Namely bread, pitas, and ritz crackers. No thank you baby food mush.

Also when she is about to eat she makes an awesome excited gasp noise.

1. Sammy's hands are so soft. She has always loved to hold hands (or fingers) and now she likes to rub my hand or arm while being fed.

2. Harmon likes to say loudly/yell "TREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAT!!!!" when he desires a fruit snack.

3. Harmon likes to play in all of Sammy's toys and say "goo goo gah gah"

4. Harmon is speaking like crazy, sometimes using two or three words together.

5. Harmon begs/demands toys and treats by using the lethal combination of "share pleeeeeease!" "pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee treattttttttt!" "tryyyyy!!!!!" "tradeeeeeee!"

6. Sammy was growling a lot (at things she liked) then stopped, but has started again.

7. Sammy LOVES herself in the mirror and giggles with extreme delight. Quite taken with herself.

8. Sammy is an ultimate grabber of everything, especially food. She doesn't love mushy foods near as much as she likes super solids like bread and crackers.

9. Both kids can fall asleep in a room together when Harmon wakes Sammy up when he goes to bed.

10. Harmon climbs on the many tables in our front room and yells "SIT DOWN!" in either a super high or growly voice. I promise it is nothing like I say it to him at all.

11. Every night before going to bed Sammy gets kisses from everyone including Harmon who seems quite taken with her.

12. Harmon is obsessed with all construction vehicles. Actually all vehicles. But especially diggers and dump trucks and fire trucks and buses. Ok, all vehicles.

13. Sammy loves peek-a-boo with blankets.

14. Harmon loves a new wooden puzzle and mastered it within 10 minutes (when I thought I was going to be saving the second one for his birthday in 4 months) but played with it for hours anyway, doing it over and over and playing with the pieces.

15. Both kids love being outside. Ridiculously much. And bathing.

So Far Behind, But Remember...

I have a ton of things I have meant to write on here so I don't forget them. Like how Sammy rolls everywhere and eats big people food like she's starving to death. But instead of remembering all those I will just write yesterday's happy memory:

Driving in the car and I hear Sammy laughing. I turn around to see what is going on and Harmon is making funny/smiley faces at her. He makes a face and then she laughs. SO cute. I love times like this. She really loves to watch him, and they seem to be growing closer which is something I didn't expect to happen so young.
