Recap Friday : So Many Changes

I received a spectacular Mama Day present that I forgot to write about. Mace started dancing this week. Really dancing.

I put on DCFC and he was doing the craziest dance move. Like a cross between the funky chicken and a body roll (any modern dancers out there?) He loves the music and totally freaks out whenever he hears a song he loves. When I was 4 months pregnant we went to a DCFC concert, I wonder if that is why he seems to love them as much as I do.

Owen has picked up the ability to perform long raspberries, even better open mouth kisses and do the Indian call (you know, patting hand on mouth while saying wawawawawa).

He is also obsessed with climbing and was found multiple times by multiple people on kiddie tables at the twin playdate we attended this week. He also has taken to swiping at table surfaces above his head to see what he can come up with. Fun times.

The new backyard access has been much appreciated by all,

Both boys love running through sprays of water and Mace drinks from the sprinkler head with great zeal. I will get a few shots of water fun as it looks like our heat has come upon us and it not letting up for awhile.

Nap times have been interesting, to say the least. Transitions are as hard for me as they are for them so I tell myself to take it one day at a time and not stress too much. My biggest concern is always for them and they are doing okay. A little tired, a little more cranky as they sort out their sleep needs, but doing okay.

Funny, they are sleeping now as I write this and the hard parts of today have faded back, leaving me with thoughts of the fun we had, their enthusiasm in all things, their utter joy in discovery and it makes tomorrow look very, very bright. Have a great weekend.

Your photos are so beautiful, really professional - did you finally get your camera woes sorted? I loved the sweaters from your last post too, It must be an extra challenge having to make two of everything!

I hear you on the sleep schedule issues ... 'gramma' is looking a little haggard lately ... the 3AM feedings are killing me, especially when followed by a 6AM wake up. Big fat raspberry to that!!!!

Oy, I remember the 2 to 1 nap transition, I'm just glad it's over! I hope we can see some M dance video soon! It's amazing how hard it has been for me to make the effort to break out the video camera to record this time, I really need to be better about tat. Owen sounds so much like Robby, those curls are so precious.
