I wanted to get a post in about the latest updates with the girls. If I don't blog about them, I might forget. Both girls can put their hands on their head if you ask them where their head is. They do the same with their toes and their bellies. Riley actually pats her chest when I say, "Where is your belly?" That is so cute. She doesn't seem to know her belly is a little further down.
Lately Addison noticed she can make the fish face where you squeeze your cheeks together. She does that over and over now. I need to get a picture of that.
Riley stood unassisted for about 6 seconds without wobbling or falling over yesterday. I was amazed at how quickly the physical therapy is working. She is also crawling properly about 90% of the time now. If she is on a rug or carpet she crawls properly but sometimes on the hardwood floor she crawls on her belly. I don't blame her because the hardwood hurts to crawl on - I tried when I was playing with them and my knees were in some serious pain. :(
The girls are making some progress on their sippy cups but I feel as though they have a death grip on their bottles. I don't think they are ready to give up the bottles. They don't quite get the idea of getting liquid through the sippies. I think it comes out too fast for them. We will keep trying though.
We are back in a teething mode for both girls. Addison has 4 teeth now 2 on top and 2 on the bottom and she may be working on more. Riley has 8 teeth. 4 on top, 4 on the bottom. Both girls have been on and off cranky so we have been back in a regimen of Tylenol, orajel, and teething tablets. At least so far their sleep is not interrupted too much. Addison woke up twice last night for the first time in a long time. Riley is sleeping pretty well but both of her latest teeth cut through so I'm sure she is feeling much better.
Those are the updates for now. Each day they seem to learn something new. I just love how their minds work and how much they pick up on.
