Around 7.5 months Elliot started crawling, the same day Finnley got her first tooth. The next day Elliot started pulling herself up?!?!? A day after that Finnley started crawling. Just a week or so ago Elliot poked out her first tooth. And somewhere in between there Finnley also pulled herself up, but doesn't do it as often. They now each have two bottom teeth, crawl everywhere, and are constantly trying to pull up on anything and everything. Chaos!
Elliot started babbling, "Ma ba ma ba ma ba.." and of course a day or two later Finnley started saying "Ma ma ma ma.."
These gals are HEAVY. Especially when you carry both at the same time. Finnley is 20.2 pounds and Elliot is about 1/2 pound behind.
Elliot and Finnley eat and nap at the same time. They rarely nurse alone (unless we are in public, I don't tandem then) or nap without one another. 2-4 naps a day, quality affects quantity. We are up around 6am and bed a little after 6pm. They wake in the night 3-4 times average.
You may think I'm crazy, but I'm so excited for them to start walking. They are already wanting to so badly. It will just be a lot of fun. (Quote me on this is 5 months)
I love how they are starting to interact with one another. Holding hands, laughing when the other is laughing, grabbing eachother's face.. all that fun stuff!
How about some more pictures?
