We have teeth! Sylvia has one big fang and one that just popped through yesterday. Both on the bottom. Mya has one tooth on the bottom. Baby teeth are sharp. Kind of like puppy teeth! I love them. Especially when they bite my clothes... it's funny!

They are both crawling now... on their knees and everything! They're all over the place. I was making bottles in the kitchen (left the girls to play in eyes view in the living room) and I looked down and there was Mya at my feet looking up at me with her big blue eyes. It was too cute!

Mya is on an apnea monitor and we've only had one scare that she self-corrected. They were supposed to come out and download it the other day, but I haven't heard from them. Which reminds me I need to call them back.

I'm never sure when this site will work or not so excuse the sporadic updates.

Here's a picture of Sylvia's tooth:

Mobility hurts.

Ok, the mommy worry-wart rears her ugly head... be prepared.

The girls are mobile. I wouldn't say "crawling" necessarily, but definitely mobile. So yesterday, I was changing Mya on the couch when Sylvia started shrieking because in her attempt to go from a sit to a crawl got stuck between part of her toy. So I go to rescue Sylvia and CRASH. Mya crawled, fell off the couch into the coffee table and got a HUGE bruise and raised bump on the back of her head. I was so scared. I ended up waking her up after she went to bed just in case she had a concussion (and omg, she's so cute when she's wicked drowsy). She seemed just fine this morning and I think the fact that I put ice on her head was more traumatizing than the fall. This of course all occurred two days after Sylvia pulled a toy down on top of her and got a big bump and a cut over her eye from it. I'm not feeling like the best of mothers these days. I know these events are inevitable and the girls are hearty little ones... but I swear I'm buying helmets. My kids will NEVER ride bikes... okay, at least not while I'm there. I really have to learn how to handle both of them being mobile at the same time... and quickly! Here are some pictures for your amusement...
