Baybay & Baybee: Week 68 (11/21-11/27)

68 weeks old!

We spent Thanksgiving on Thursday in Leyden with Kathy, Craig, and Guy + Selena! The food was yummy and the time with family was special and relaxing. I realized during this visit that Maya and Ella really recognize and remember Grandma and Grandpa's house. They went right over to the toy basket set up under the spiral staircase and started playing.

"Hey, there's an empty chair here, so someone needs to come sit next to me!"

"Hi, Uncle Guy, what's new with you?"

Ella, wearing a fancy hat while nursing.

Vroom, vroom.

Brett's parents got these play sets from someone via Craigslist! Maya and Ella are so lucky.

Up the slide.

Up the other slide!

Both girls with their grandmother. Brett and I got a relaxing few bites of food during this special moment.

Not only did we get to spend time with Selena on Thanksgiving, but she also stopped by for a visit later in the week. It makes me a little teary to see the girls run over and hug her as soon as she walks in the door. They just love her so much (as do I)!

Nice boots.

Coloring with crayons is a new activity for us. The girls aren't ready for anything more than scribbling lines on the paper, but that's enough to be excited about for now. I can't wait to do more art projects with them when they get older!

Tracing Ella's foot.

Nights are still lacking in sleep around here, and we have been wondering if possibly Maya and Ella are waking up because they aren't warm enough. I even bought a little heater to try in their room, but it was kind of loud and the girls seemed afraid of it, so I took it back. We made an effort to bundle them up a bit more for the night, but that didn't seem to make much of a difference in their sleep, either. Who knows--they will sleep well consistently at some point, right?

After all the laundry is folded, the basket is for sitting in.

Vroom, vroom.

Spices from the kitchen belong in the living room, obviously. (She's about to run back to get more.)

Eating a snack while I make dinner. There will be a picture next week of the AWESOME learning tower that Guy made for us! He finished it just as the week ended. It's been such a useful and fun addition to our kitchen.
