thing one and thing two
We have noticed that Max has an almost uncontrollable smile. Even when he is a bit sad, tired, and/or hungry, if we smile at him, he will smile back.
Maya has been spending a lot of time lately with at least one fist in her mouth. She has also been having a harder time sleeping lately and has been more grumpy than her normal happy self. We are thinking the combination of fist-munching and grumpiness might be early signs of teething. The babies are only five months old, which is a little young to be teething, but my mom has said that I had a tooth come in at four months old. Any suggestions for dealing with teething, fussy babies would be appreciated. We've tried frozen teething rings and the like.
These cute onesies were given to us by my long time friend Tara and her husband Jeff. We love them (the outfits and the friends)! Our little "Things" first wore these outfits when we went to library story time, which is starting to become part of our weekly schedule. The kids seem to really enjoy the singing and the movement along with looking at the books and other babies in the room. When the babies wore these onesies, we appropriately read Dr. Seuss books.
On other occasions, Maya has worn the Thing 1 onesie because she was born first. This morning, Lonnie put the Thing 1 on Max as a reward for being such a good boy lately (very little crying and grumpiness like the other one). I am always telling Lonnie that we need to try to not compare them too much. :)
