In the last week or so, Paisley has had some exciting milestones to share! It took her 10 months, but she finally got her very first tooth! (Adelyn beat her on that one, getting her first tooth a couple months ago. And now she has 3!) Additionally, Paisley has started pulling herself up on furniture! She hasn’t started cruising along the edge yet, but she definitely gets up to a standing position… which gives her access to a whole new world!
I have conflicting feelings about the girls’ varying developmental skills. I know that all babies progress at different paces, but having twins… it’s so hard not to compare them and worry that one might be a little behind. Adelyn is far more verbally developed and jabbers mama, dada, baba, juju, etc. Yet she seems happy to sit and play without any desire to crawl, let alone pull herself up on furniture. And Paisley may be more physically developed, but she doesn’t talk at all. She screeches and grunts… but that’s about it!
I’ve hear that sometimes with twins, one will be more verbal and one will excel more physically. And I’m sure it has nothing to do with their long term abilities or skills. I’m just being a paranoid mama! They’re both such sweet loving girls, with wildly different personalities. I love them soooooooooooo much!
Happy weekend my friends!
