Bethany decided that she didn't like cutting teeth on Monday and cried almost all day causing her to go hoarse which is sad but adorable since she does what we have now so lovingly named the "binker call" at night. It sounds so pitiful without much of a voice! Emily figured out how to do a "fake" cough to get our attention on Thursday which is precious. Now she does it any time we leave the room and when we look back she is looking at us with her head tipped to the side and a silly little grin on her face like "what? I didn't do anything!!"
They are eating "real food" now and it is fun to watch. Bethany grunts and gets frustrated if the food doesn't come fast enough. She will eat pretty much anything, but has learned how to spit at us (so cute the first 9 or 10 times, but then...a little frustrating when she does it with every spoonful). Emily is in la-la land most of the time, she looks around to see what is going on or what she can get into. Hmm... where is that kitty?, oooh look... mommy is over there, what IS that on the counter, I bet I can reach that!, etc.
Both girls love to laugh and they look forward to their daddy coming home each day since he gets on the floor and tickles and plays with them. It is fun to watch them have "daddy time." He is the only one that can make them both laugh really hard. I keep hearing that they only get cuter as they get older. It is hard to believe as I think that they are the cutest that they can be right now!!
