Summer Summary

This is going to be a stream-of-consciousness post. I have no plans ... I just want to update everybody on our last couple of months!

The girls are 14 months now! In the time since their birthday, you've seen that Hadley started crawling, and you know that Leila is pulling up. Also, Leila is climbing! We don't have any stairs at our house, but we get plenty of practice at the playground and friend's houses.

The BIG news is that both of the girls are saying their first word -- "done"! They use it when they are finished drinking from their sippy cups and sometimes when they're done with a meal. Leila says "dut", but we know what she means. :) We are teaching them a small amount of sign language, and they use the sign for "all done" and "more".

We have a few new toys, and their cars have become a new favorite. Unfortunately for them, they haven't figured out how to go anywhere ... but they like to sit and play with the gadgets.

Now that the girls are mobile, we spend a lot of time outside. Sometimes we go to the playground, but most of the time I just open the front door and we all spill out onto the porch and front lawn. It's a great place for Hadley to work on standing ... and for Leila to eat wood chips, apparently. :)

On a night when Tony and I were too tired to play referee by the bathtub, we gave the girls a quick sink bath. So stinkin' cute!

Are their toenails painted?? How'd you get them to sit still for that?

@Rebecca: yes, they are! It takes very enthusiastic singing, a cartoon on tv, and something intriguing for them to hold. :)
