114 weeks old! (26 months)
There are so many happy pictures from this week. From looking at them, you wouldn't know that we were actually having a very tough time. Brett just wasn't feeling settled in our new house. So many boxes of things were still in the basement. I was was exhausted. Brett was exhausted. Maya and Ella were screeching a lot.
Brett was away all day on Sunday at a Scrabble tournament. Guy came over to visit us for some of that day, Selena also stopped by another day during the week. Maya, Ella and I also went on some adventures together.
Ice cream face!
We've been trying to help the girls learn to express their frustration in words, rather than screeches or crying. It's been challenging, but I think our gentle reminders to say, "Help me please!" instead of getting so upset are making a difference. I know it's a slow process. I'm sure that as they become better at talking, that will also help a great deal. I think sometimes they screech and cry because they just don't know how to say what they want (or don't want) in words.
When did my babies suddenly start looking like such big kids?

We got these papaya's in the mail! They are from Amber's tree in Florida!
Other adventures this week included a visit to the farm, a quick apple picking trip for more Macouns, playing at the park, and some fun at Cup and Top.

First time being able to climb the rope ladder at the park, and a little bit of not wanting to go home.
