Just Sitting Around

Babies Situation:

The Girls turned 10 months on Jan. 18th.!! Yeah! Both are in full swing of teething. Kinsley's second tooth broke through over the weekend but you can only see the first one when she smiles. Trinity still has no teeth breaking through but she has had low grade fevers, drooling, and fussiness so we know it's going to happen soon.

Both Girls can sit. Trinity is a little bit stronger and can sit longer but Kinsley does sit on her own. We started off giving them large, tall toys to play with for them to lean on and practice. Now OT suggests giving them small toys where they have to balance to strengthen their core muscles. It's working!!

The crawling is coming along. Kinsley now whips around the room in her half army crawl(she's about an inch off the ground) getting into everything she shouldn't get into. It's funny to watch her. She first looks around the room to see what's off limits and then goes for it. She like bedroom shoes, cups, remotes, cell phones, plugs, and going behind the couch. Over the weekend, Trinity started moving more. She will army crawl a few inches but that's it for now. She hasn't realized that she can make it across the room. Boy are we in trouble when she does!

Parent's Thoughts:

It has been such a joy watching them grow. They are doing new things every day and it feels great for them to meet their milestones month after month. At this point, they are doing everything they should be doing for 6 1/2 months old. We will continue to work with them on crawling, sitting, and some standing. We have so much fun with them. We all get to laugh and play together which reminds Keith and I what life is really about. Thank you God.

Our Encouragement:

I have great confidence in you; I take great pride in you. I am greatly encouraged; in all our troubles my joy knows no bounds.
