The girls have been changing so much lately. In just the last month, Rebekah has gone from army crawling, to her version of crawling, to pulling to stand, and cruising a little around the furniture. She's not usually content to stay in one place, and definitely does not like having her diaper changed because she's stuck in one place. Rebekah has shown us her displeasure for certain foods and when we take something from her. Ray and I are trying to figure out how to handle those outbursts, but all in all, she's a very happy and content girl. I love going into her bedroom in the morning or after her nap to see her standing in her crib with a huge smile on her face. It's a highlight of my day! She also started clapping a couple days ago... I really love hearing that little smack, smack, smack!
Elise's vocabulary has been growing by leaps and bounds. The other day she fell over and said, "Woah! I lost my balance!" She loves to color and draw circles. She loves singing her songs from Sunday School and reading her bible story and lesson before nap and bedtime. We're in a phase now where she is making comparisons, something is always like something else. Elise is started to get more comforatble around other kids, eventhough she still won't talk to them. She no longer insists on leaving the playground when all the kids come to play after school, and I even saw her try to give one of her Sunday School friends a toy when we were at a play date.

I'm trying to cherish these little moments as they are all passing so quickly. But now, I'm being asked to go outside and to go to the playground. Elise LOVES her routine!
