Okay, so other than not being able to go out in public, this is such a fun phase! The girls' learning has just taken off suddenly, and I'm just hanging on for the ride. :) Hadley learned how to use the scooter yesterday, and she's already as good at it as Leila, so it's only a matter of time before she walks!
Also, Leila is counting to SIX! I'm serious -- she learned it without us asking her to, she does it without prompting (except when I wanted to get it on video), and all the numbers are there, although they aren't perfectly enunciated, obviously. You can only ask a 16-month-old to do so much. :) (Side note: that's Lavender, the purple bunny. Leila only sucks her thumb when she has Lavender, and we try to keep it in the crib, but you see how well that works.)
