While we deal with our stress and tantrums (mine mostly) the kids continue to amaze and amuse us (thank goodness, right?).
Peanut is hysterically funny when she imitates the things she sees or experiences. She particularly likes to lead a dance class from atop a chair. She was missing in the house for a few minutes this weekend; Honey called her, and she answered "I'm putting on some cream!". When we found her, she had rubbed globs of hand cream all over her face. She is also, of course, wearing a tutu under her jacket. These are the times when I am so pleased to use all organic skin care - you don't plan on eating these things, but sometimes you (or someone else) do!
Pumpkin is continuing to give us a run for our money. We have worked out his sleeping and eating to where he eats about every 4 hours now, so that is an improvement. I'd love to get back to at least a 6 hour stretch at night...
He is now pulling to standing on everything he can find. He's pretty stable here and can use one hand to reach and play while he balances with the other. This morning, he wanted to help me cook like Peanut does, so he pulled up to the stool in the kitchen. He always looks so pleased with himself.
