Today, for the first time, we let the girls try to feed themselves some food…some of Grandma Sue’s mashed potatoes. We put the trays back on the sit-me-ups and plopped down some very well mashed potatoes. At first no one knew what to do! Eventually Emerie started chowing down while Harper and Reagan squished and played with it.
Grandma Sue also taught Harper a new trait. She will now growl at you. It’s adorable! She does it constantly like she is just plain talking to you.
Christmas is just around the corner and we’ve been playing dress up a good amount. I found a number of matching outfits and now that they are easier to tell apart (in some ways) it is fun to make them match and see if others can recognize who is who.
Some family has come up to enjoy the first holiday season with us. The girls really enjoy pulling on their Grandma Sue’s hair, stealing Papa Lon’s hat off his head, playing with Cousin Tyler and Aunt Nicki, and talking to Grandma Anne and Papa Cliff. It’s fun to see their interactions with new people and they are getting much more comfortable with noise and chaos in the house day to day.
Now, it would be REALLY nice if the teething rage slowed down and we could remember what a solid night of sleep feels like. Thank goodness my mom is taking an evening shift so we can get a few hours of uninterrupted shuteye the last night or two. Here is a peek at Reagan’s teeth- sneak attack!
