New Tricks

The babies do a few new tricks!

  1. According to Shifra (our au pair), Dovid is doing better with the whole food thing...but I'll believe it when I see it. Chana is still pretty disinterested in eating but loves throwing food on the floor. (I mean, who doesn't?)

  2. Chana actually pulled herself up into a sitting position yesterday! Shifra had laid her down in her crib and when we walked in a few minutes later, there she was sitting with her hands on the bars of the crib. Of course she used the bars to her advantage in helping her to sit up, but still...she did it under her own power. This then prompted me to immediately lower the mattresses in both cribs.

  3. Dovid can pull himself into a kneeling position using the bars on his crib. Another reason why lowering the mattresses was such an emergency...

  4. The twins are also getting much better at sitting up, but especially Chana. Dovid much prefers "standing" to sitting (even though he can't stand on his own).

I actually have two pictures from when Dovid pulled himself into the kneeling position for the first time:



And here are a few pictures of Chana sitting in her crib holding onto the rails. (This is not from when she pulled herself up.) This first one is my favorite!!!

So cute! I'm glad you moved the cribs down, it's only a matter of time before they're standing in there.

They both have such sweet faces. Almost like they're saying, "There's no stopping me now, Ma!"
