It’s the middle of February, and winter has finally arrived here in Iowa. There’s no snow on the ground, but it sure is chilly and blustery. A great day for the little ladies and I to stay IN!
Girlfriends have become more like little people than little babies in the last few weeks. They have feelings, and know what they want. They see a toy on the other side of the room and cry because they can’t get there. However as a new development, Paisley has realized she can reach a destination by rolling… which has turned our household upside down! Now we’re considering gates and outlet plugs and rethinking our sharp-edged furniture. Little Dell is a lot more content to lie stationary on her back and play quietly, but just today she rolled from back to belly, which is a FIRST! It’s not that she couldn’t roll until now, she just didn’t have a burning desire to be doing anything other than playing happily on her back. I think she sees her sissy’s newfound mobility and decided there are definitely benefits.
Today the girls are wearing matching T-shirts that they got for Christmas from their Auntie Laura! She got them as souvenirs when she was studying abroad in Spain last semester. The shirts say something in Spanish. What? I do not know. Laura! I forgot what the shirts say! Enlighten us all!
