Since the girls are moving around a lot more they tend to get close to each other more often. We have been just letting them play with each other until one of them doesn't like it anymore. Yet another type of interaction that has been fun to watch. Here is Caroline giving Addison some love taps. Fortunately, when the head is involved, they are pretty gentle so they usually don't mind. However, Addison knocks on Caroline's head which has to hurt a bit more than when Caroline just pats Addison's head. Oh well. Caroline usually doesn't mind.
Caroline loves her big sister
Some non-baby happenings, Scott and I went to Ravinia with a bunch of people from church to see/hear Counting Crows. They were great. The great thing is that they played some of their popular songs like Mr Jones and Long December that I had heard they don't play at concerts anymore. Great time!
This rolled up carpet has been the perfect thing to help them practice pulling themselves up on things or stand on their own. They can only get up on their own onto their knees but I am sure that will change soon.
This is their new thing...screaming! Well it is not a new thing actually. Addison does it more than Caroline and she will do it for all sorts of reasons...when she is happy, sad, bored, hungry, tired, etc... Here is an example of one of her playing screams. If anyone has any tips on how to stop this I would appreciate it.
And Caroline screaming. They also set each other off and will scream back and forth. I'm sure our neighbors all love this!
In the morning I usually give them some prunes mixed with their cereal for breakfast. For some reason they tend to rub their hands in the leftovers around their mouth and then rub their eyes pretty much every time. This is how they typically look after breakfast.
Last night I looked over and saw Addison popping her little head above the coffee table. The pulling up onto furniture now begins. She is only on her knees here but like I already said, it is just a matter of time before they are getting up on their feet.
