Long time no blog.....

I'm really surprised I've not gotten subtle hints to update!

C&C are at such a fun age and delight (usually) to be with. It's so hard to believe they will be 8 months old in a few days. Surprisingly, neither baby has gotten up on all fours to attempt crawling. They do attempt to bring their knees up, but usually just flip over onto their sides.

Chloe is fascinated with babies, regardless if it's a picture in a book, on a video or her own image. She laughs when she sees a baby. lately, when she's looking at her reflection, she will move her tongue in and out of her mouth. It's quite a site. She enjoyed getting close to a mirror, fogging up the image while she admires the baby she's looking at. We thought Chloe was cutting her first tooth....in the upper right molar area. While it is still a white bump, it's not at large as it was yesterday. It will be interesting to see if she cuts her first tooth there.

Connor is such a busy body. It seems the only time he is still is when he's sleeping. The little stinker could sit up on his own if he wanted to, but he's too busy looking around and moving to stay up long enough. We can trick him by sitting him up in front of us, though. I think he would walk if his legs would allow him. Connor's new name is scratch. He tends to scratch his face. Not sure why, but I note more scratches after I clip his nails. Both C&C were patient when I clipped their nails earlier this week, so maybe I'll attempt to file them a bit to get the sharp edge off.

It's so fun to see C&C improve on their hand/eye coordination. I've been giving them cheerios and gerber puff crackers. Connor usually dumps more on the floor than in his mouth. Chloe is usually pretty good at getting things to her mouth.

We were able to see the final photos from the photo shoot over the weekend. Let me tell you, Elaine does a fabulous job. I could definitely go broke, but had to restrain myself and not go overboard. Can't wait to add more art when the order arrives!

Ok...I need to upload more videos, but this post will have to do for now.

Thanks for the pic update Jennie, they are great. The first pic of Connor under the clothesbasket reminds me of one of Julio like that. Love Mom
