What they are saying...
Isla's gone a bit silent as of late but for most of the month she was all about dad dad dad dad.
Alice generally says bah... the best are her silent bahs where her mouth moves but no sound comes out.
What they are wearing...
one day I will do a post about how baby clothing is ridiculous, how I get sudden urges and find myself scouring used websites for sewing machines... determined that I will start a company that makes baby clothes that fit long + skinny babies or babies that wear cloth diapers... but for now I will just tell you this... they are in 18 month sleepers... they are 9 months... ridiculous
and then there's the issue of shoes... they are babies... who don't yet walk (and we're in no rush to change that) so they have one pair of robeeze each and that is pretty much their only option when we leave the house. Now that summer weather is nearing they are in need of some sandals. Same ridiculousness... fat shoes are everywhere for babies. Are we the only people out there with skinny footed babies? I think not.
not that shoes even have a good shot at staying on. Alice prefers bare feet... in her mouth.
What they are doing
They are so close to crawling. so. close.
I love to watch them try. Isla rocks back and forth with sheer determination and Alice drags her body forward on her elbows. The gates are up. We're ready.
For now they roll. They roll off of the carpet and explore the hardwood. They roll into the kitchen. They roll to see Heidi. They roll to go and get a toy. They roll... all of the time... to get to poppity pop.
happy nine months Alice & Isla
