|Where Middie Biddie spends |
a great deal of her time
Middie Biddie has learned to pivot on her tummy and can move a little bit, we suspect she'll be mobile in the next week or two, but she's also teething which is making her needy. I'm trying to give her floor time so she can figure out the whole crawling thing, but she really just wants to be held all the time. She's starting to bury her face in my chest and kind of head butts me and rubs her head on me from time to time. I'm trying to give her floor time, but she tends to get upset.
Teeny Tiny is more independent. I can walk away from her and she'll find something to entertain herself, but she really prefers that I be there. She's now crawling all over my legs and prefers to lean on me as she plays with a toy. That's nice and everything, but she's not interacting with me, just using my legs or my hip to lean her back against while she sits and plays with something. Every once in a while, she'll climb up into my arms and give me a hug, and then she's off again! Every once in a while I'll lie down in there and use a boppy as a pillow and she'll come and lie down with me.

YAY!!!! We're finally hitting a real snuggle stage!
I'm starting to pack up the baby stuff. When K finally gets a day or two off, we're probably going to have the great baby purge. I've decided that I can keep a few things under the bed just in case we have another - my favorite baby clothes, 2 of each type of bottle, my pumping stuff, but most of it has to go. Apparently there's someone in my mothers friend circle who is about halfway through a twin pregnancy so once we find out if there's a girl, that will probably be the person behind me in the hand me down chain. Being the youngest child of two youngest children and having kids so late in life, there's simply no one for me to hand down to! Even fellow local blogger Tulips baby, who is about 7 months younger than the girls, is wearing the size clothing that I'm currently moving the girls into.
At the moment I'm leaning towards no more kids. But I've leaned the other direction several times in the last year so we're aren't making any final decisions on that until the girls are 3 years old. From what I've seen, when kids hit about 3, that's when parents start yearning for another one so we'll keep that option open just in case that happens to us.
