Tommy is getting used to baby cereal. He sometimes looks like he's not sure about the bite he just took but then he swallows it happily, and babbles and coos for more. He gets so excited that he laughs, kicks, and spits. Mommy is excited because since we started a regular schedule of cereal, Tommy is sleeping 8-9 hours straight. Bring on the solid foods, this boy loves them.
Annie is still loving gymnastics. That's her blur of a hot pink bum in the picture above. She is not a fan of the balance beam, but she loves the bars and tumbling.
Picnic with Claire
The things they say......The girls said two cute things recently that I wanted to write down. Last week Lily was invited to play at a friend's house. I explained to her that Annie was not invited to come along. Lily became very sad and told me, "But Annie has to come because she's my sister and her heart is in my heart and we are going to love each other forever so we have to play together all the time." Last Sunday we were watching a bible story for children about Esther. At one point in the movie Esther says, "If I perish, I perish." Annie could tell that was a serious statement and became very worried about Esther and what it means to perish. I tried to explain that perish means to die. I don't think she understood me because all through the rest of the movie Annie kept asking, "Did Esther perish yet? When is she going to perish?" I think she asked me about 10 times. Silly kids!
