Hey! Look who! It’s our crazy cousin Vance! Vance and his folks came over to visit last weekend and we had a ball. He’s so cute! He’s almost 6 months old now.
Check out this standing position. This kid has got it DOWN!
Phew! All that standing to entertain Tessa and Nora is exhausting!
Tessa got to chat it up with Aunt Michelle (note Vance back in standing position).
Then Tessa broke into song with Uncle Joel. He’s so much fun. Scruffy too.
Nora had to tell Cousin Vance how it is. “Look kid, all you gotta do is…”
Vance thinking, “Is she trying to kiss me?” Pucker up!
Swings are the greatest invention EVER. We LOVE to swing. In fact, the last time we went to the park we squealed so loudly on the baby swings that kids who were playing around us stopped to take note of HOW MUCH FUN WE WERE HAVING ON THE SWINGS.
Check out the white-knuckled grip Tess has on the swing.
Oh my my my. The breeze on Nori’s toes is glorious!
Every night during “grabfest” (ok, grabfest is usually a round-the-clock event but it just seems especially aggressive in the evenings) we try different tactics to distract the girls from the non-stop tug-of-war over every single toy. We are by no means short on toys, but it just seems like whatever toy one girl has the other one HAS to have it and slobber all over it. Case in point.
Hi, Tess! Looks like you’re playing so well by yourself. Is that your sister Nora I see inching up behind you??? I think she’s eyeballing that toy you have.
Hey sis. What’s this? Something to put in my mouth. Yum. Looks like fun!
If I could just get my mugs on it. Tessa is holding on tight!
HEY DADDY! NO TICKLING FROM BEHIND. THAT’S NOT FAIR!
Ok. We can share Daddy. He’s so much fun. Ahhhh….peace at last.
Hey! Is that the REMOTE CONTROL! Gimme!
