Holding Hands, Cherrios, Puffs, Pasta, Bananas



Another adorable thing...the babies love to hold hands. It's a twin thing I suppose but it's so cute. Luke usually grabs for Taylor's hand but it goes both ways. Taylor likes petting Luke's hair....we're "working" on being gentle. lol




Trying the table foods. I'm not gonna lie...I'm not really having fun with this. Although it's getting better. Taylor is getting good at getting the cherrios into her mouth. Luke can pick them up but has no desire to lift them to his mouth. He can open his mouth for you to put them in though......stinker. If you try to "help" him or either of them for that matter....they yank their hand away. They don't like being helped. Luke liked the pasta and sauce. They did okay with little pieces of ripe banana but they still don't like new textures. They finally have the hang of puffs and cherrios but put something new in there and they gag and carry on. Good times. I'll tell ya.....the doc said to give them what we're eating at dinner. Does he know how we eat? Ya can't give them a hunk of frozen pizza. lol Guess this means we need to eat better. I like that I know what's in the baby food though. Nothing I can't pronounce...just the veggie, fruit and water for preparation. It also takes forever for them to eat this way......patience Robin......it's an all afternoon snack event. :) I suppose when they can feed themselves it'll all be worth it. (Then I'll miss feeding them). lol

Luke's version

video

There's so many things I could blog about. I just don't have the time when I think of things and the brain to remember what I was going to blog about when I had that thought. lol So many cute things are happening. One of the cutest thing is how they are now grabbing my legs. They pull at my pants and try to climb me. Like....hello...mom, do you know I'm down here?

This video is Luke just a few days ago...right after I filmed Taylor saying Maamaa. I think the reason I never get to posting the video is because they change so quick and then I get new and newer video and never have time to post it. Plus I'll need another hard drive for the video alone. Luke may seem quiet most times but this boy loves to scream and believe it or not I think he can scream at a more piercing decibel than his sister. It's rare, it's usually only with Nick and I but he gets so excited some time he just screams. OR he likes to scream this way when I'm in the shower...it echos in there and literally leaves my ears ringing. I took some video of him last night. Nick and I were cracking up.....I won't spoil it........the video will come soon. (I hope)
