Toddlerhood is Looming

All the signs are pointing to the arrival of toddlerhood X 3! One week post birthday and the girls are interacting more and giggling, exploring…and biting?! At lunch the other day Reagan stuck her hand into Emerie’s mouth, in between noodles, and Emerie chomped down. Luckily Em only has two bottom teeth and top teeth bumps. Of course, Reagan started crying and once she calmed down, she put that hand right back and did it again!! Apparently it will take some more teeth for her to stop testing that idea out…

Playing with their toys and behaving!

Two more days until the sixth developmental leap completes and it is taking forever! For example, Harper is in a new phase of shaking her rattles and then banging them on her siblings’ heads. A good amount of tears have fallen in the past few days over this. She doesn’t yet recognize that her actions cause baby rage, and continues to test out the rattle’s functionality as we are hollering to stop.

Another example…Emerie decided to test out her teeth skills by chomping down on my shoulder when I didn’t immediately placate her on something. Tiny girl gave me a mini bruise on my shoulder with only two bottom teeth!

Last night at bedtime we put the girls down with their binkies like usual, turned on the nightlight and white noise machine, and walked out of the room. After pausing for a moment, you could hear big giggles coming from their room. Harper and Reagan were just laughing, in the dark, at each other through the crib slats. It was pretty cute and the first time we’ve noticed them doing it. Emerie was already asleep and missed the giggles this time.

Binkie time

It only lasted about 10 minutes. I captured some of it off the baby cam: Harper is in the left crib and Reagan on the right. Enjoy!

Of course, baby giggles eventually turned to shrieks, with Reagan not ready to go to sleep. She ended up with Mom and Dad as Harper snuggled up with her wubbanub and fell asleep. Emerie slept the entire night in her crib too!
