Swing Kids

Ok, I STILL haven't taken pictures of the playroom. We've been busy having fun, trying new foods, and stretching our "crusing" legs... Here's a pic of the girls' first ride in a big kid swing. Everything is easier when you do it together, right? ;)

We know what we stand for - Standing!

Here's a really long video of the girls interacting with each other and with their favorite carnival ride - the car seat. They protest when you put them in there for traveling purposes, but the minute they're out, it's all play. Watch how nicely they have learned to sit down after standing - thank goodness for fewer bonked heads! And note Dani's new favorite sound - the pterodactyl.

Our little fishes

One of the girls' new favorite activities is swim class. They've gone to 6 classes now and are very comfy in the water. Both like to kick their legs and splash their hands. Alex loves to float on her back (with help, of course) and Dani loves to keep a death grip on her rubber ducky all through class. They are pisces, so I should have guessed they'd be natural born swimmers. Perhaps their new underwater nursery mural helps too. Even at home, they're swimmin' with the fishes!

Click here to see a poorly tiled panorama of my mural in the nursery. It was fun to remember all the nifty stuff Jack and I saw while scuba diving last year in Bonaire. (and to make up a few fish here and there too...) For the next post, I'll take some pictures of the girls' "forest of flowers" playroom. These little kiddos of ours have provided a great excuse to break out the paintbrushes and dust off my creative brain for a few days. :)

The girls have a really cute new habit - when left alone (or when they think they are alone) they start to giggle when they see each other. We caught a short snippet on video, which can't do justice to the cuteness of these moments.
Thanks to Dan Z for teaching me how to post this via You Tube! Check it out:

Now, while my girls are the MOST ADORABLE thing ever when you experience them laughing in person, I must say that my video has nothing on this one (it makes me laugh EVERY TIME):

A picture is worth a thousand words...

...So I'll let the pics do the updating! So much time has passed, and I'd just ramble on about how cute the girls are when they laugh at each other or pull to a stand or rub bananas in their hair. So here's the mega-picture update, brought to you from our new home in Carmel, IN:
