Baybay & Baybee: Week 114 (10/9-10/15)

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.

One of our adventures was pumpkin picking!

Some of us also did some hay-bale climbing.

Proud of herself for getting all the way to the top.

I like "'dis one!"

My best attempt at a photo of the girls sitting together with all the pumpkins. They just move so darn fast!

Our choices!

First ever soft serve cone. Maple flavored. A good way to introduce ice cream I think!

After the first few bites, we put most of the ice cream into a cup. That was a safer idea. Though, not any less messy...

Mmmmm! (they liked it)


Ice cream face!

Enjoying their treat while watching other people pick out pumpkins.

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?

Ella let me braid her hair!

Pink pacifiers go well with a pink leotard.

Maya's turn to wear it.


Watermelon!


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.

Selena came over to play in the leaves with us.

We love you Selena!

Where are Maya and Ella?

Peek-a-boo!

Watching the horses.

We found some tractors to play on.

Here we go, hold on tight!

Ella's turn to drive.

Looking at the little fountain.

Goats.

Maya.

Ella.

Mums!


From our quick apple picking trip.


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

Mira and the girls playing in our yard.


Ella in the BIG leaf pile.


Know what? We have a river in our backyard!

A beautiful river.

Such a peaceful spot.

Singing while rocking on Baa-Baa.
