Last week I snapped some pictures of the girls while they were playing. As the twins get older, they are playing together for longer periods of time. I also don't have to worry about watching them with Alaina as much since they are not so "fragile". It has been fun to see them changing and developing new skills.
Briella loves to move. She can stand on her own and also get up on her own. She's taken a couple steps back to back, but doesn't seem to be in too much of a hurry to learn to walk more than that. Maybe it's because she can crawl so fast. She does love it when someone takes her by the hands and walks with her though.
|I think Briella has found her first love. Isn't he cute? :)|
Here's the little "cheeser"-Christina. Sometimes she will bob her head around when she's crawling and it is so funny. She is overall more social (she says "mama" "dada" and "buh-bye") but she cannot walk or even get up on her own yet.
I guess it's not really good to compare the babies all the time-I will have to be much more careful when they get older. It's just interesting to see how different they actually are, both in personality and looks.
And here's Alaina-the best big sister in the whole world! She is so helpful to mommy and it amazes me over and over at how mature she is (ok-I will stop bragging :) )
Here is a picture of Alaina when she was about the age the babies are now-9 1/2 months. This was not long before we left South Africa to come back home.
Two babies screaming for lunch=gotta go for now. :)
