Last weekend we took the girls to feed the ducks. I thought it would be a good opportunity to work on Lauren's throwing skills but she was hesitant about the moving creatures (she seems to be fearful of any animal, big or small, that moves), so yes, she was unsure of those ducks. It might have been the loud QUACKS of the ducks and geese fighting over the bread that scared her, or the novelty of the activity, nevertheless Lauren stuck closely to her Daddy at all times. The lining on the cloud is that at least she was watching the ducks very carefully and closely.

Lauren has been doing great lately. She is following her sister all around the house, she is learning to throw, kick and to put on her sandals and to pull up her shorts. She is discovering new "finds" regularly. Here is a video of her discovery of making noise with a ball in the cup. While she has yet to say her first word, we notice that she is playing with her mouth more by making smacking noises with her lips and she is babbing and "singing" in the car and walking about more regularly.

I love my girls feet...and yes that is a box of rice krispies all over my floor. The girls then thought it would be funny to walk all over the cereal, making crunching noises and feeling the cereal inbetween their tiny toes. Before Lauren I think I would have freaked out if I saw a box of cereal spilt all over my floor, but now, moments like this are an opportunity to just step back and savour the moment and worry about the clean up later. And yes, Kayla's toes are painted in effort to stop the "toe picking". Its been working so far.
But daddy doesn't care about the cereal...cause he's not the one who has to clean the whole mess up...he greets them with a huge hug.
Kayla is taught at school to use her finger to approximate the amount of space you should leave inbetween words when writing...
Kayla's shoes after less than 3 months of wear. They are worn so roughtly that she actually broke a hole right through the right toe of her shoe. Guess I won't be passing these onto Lauren.
Lauren holding a flower...1 year ago, she had so many hesitations with her little hands that she would have never have held onto a flower, so this moment was definitely one to savour.
