Or Eden will Zoom ahead!

So I said Jillian won the walking race, but that may have been a little bit preemptive. She does have better balance and always has. She will stand up and maintain her balance for a long time. She's even started twisting at the waist and bending way over without even a stumble. She will also take about 5-6 steps when she wants to, but those have not been very often. She usually has no desire to walk and hasn't taken off on her own.
Eden has usually just stood there dancing and giggling rather than taking steps. Today Eden really got into it! He started walking between Ken and I! He walked longer distances than Jillian had, and he was much more interest in doing so. So... all that to say that Jillian may get credit for taking the first steps, but if Eden continues he will get credit for walking first! Here's a video of his new moves (sorry it's so dark):

A very close 2nd!!

Jillian came in a very close 2nd place in the crawling race!! She started her big moves last night! So much for letting them play in the living room in the morning with toys while I take a shower! Here is a video of her. I didn't get a great video of her yet. She is very slow, but I imagine that will change fast!

Eden's on the Move!! Beware!

Yes that's true Eden won the race! He started moving his hands this week while on his knees and he is now crawling! He is slow and falls back on his belly, but he can get across the room and will be into EVERYTHING very soon I'm sure! Here's a video of his first moves!

Jilly Giggle is a big Hit!

Well I guess Jillian's laugh was a big hit, so Here's one more video of the same thing, but you can hear Avery laughing at her too. Each time Avery laughs Jillian stops to look at her wondering what's so funny!

Giggly Jilly!!

My little Jillian does laugh! She has been quite the handful in her short life so far. She was a very serious baby and it took her a long time to even smile. She finally laughed, but it took her 6 months to get there. Until recently she would still rarely laugh. Now I can usually get her to laugh fairly easily, but the other day she was in the exersaucer and entertained herself really well with a toy. I managed to get the camera and take a video. Here it is:

Beasts turn sweet??

Anyone that has spent any time with me knows that I refer to my screaming sweeties as my little Beast Children!! Especially my little Jilly! They are almost 8 months old now and for the past 8 months people have been telling me that it will get easier... that it won't always be this hard... that they will become more independent... It seemed as if those days would never come.

Well I'm not saying the day is here and here to stay (I'm being non-committal), but they have been easier lately!! During the day they are typically happy and typically more easy going. They will play in the floor with a toy and spend time rolling around and practicing their crawling too. A little reprieve at least for me!

So not as often will I have beast children! I am actually enjoying them some!! Which is just amazing for me! I feel like I've just missed out on anytime that mom's should have to enjoy the tiny new baby. Hopefully I can relax a bit now and cuddle them while I can! Here's a recent pic:















Now I should go let them out of their crib while they are still in their nice form!!
