Both the girls are crawling, but not fast enough that I can't chase them down. Their favorite form of travel, however, is marching around the house with an adult hunched over them holding their little hands. They even climb the stairs in that fashion.
Cobra climbed a couple stairs by herself when I wasn't paying attention. I turned around and she was standing on the third step, smiling as she propped herself up against the wall with her hand, poised to fall backwards onto her melon. I need to look into baby gates.
Cobra also likes to stand up by herself, get her balance on something, and then let go and lunge toward her mom with open arms. This makes it very hard for Dr. Mom to leave for work, what with the heart melting and all.
Butterbean, who has up until now been the less materialistic twin, has become a "sike" artist. As in, "Want this ball, Cobra?" *snatches hand away* "Sike!" (I always thought the word was "psych," as in "psych you out" but according to Urban dictionary, I am illiterate.) Thankfully, Cobra doesn't really care about whatever item Butterbean teases her with (or, like her dad, pretends not to care about things she can't have), and turns her attention elsewhere.
I'm having to separate the girls at almost every nap time these days, since they tend to keep each other up. They still sleep in the same crib at night though. And we've come up with a solution for the fact that they are really too big to sleep in the same crib. We figured out that we can fit two Pack 'n' Plays in the closet that we call the "nursery." This way we don't have to move them into the "real nursery" downstairs, which is right next to the kitchen where we tend to cook and clean and make noise until midnight most nights.
The girls got their first sunglasses. What do you think?
