Teeth

David and Erik both have teeth! Well, David only has one, but still. They are growing up so fast. They are both being little punks and refusing to drink from a bottle again, but if that's the worst thing in my life (and some days it is), then I feel pretty lucky. I've decided to try sippy cups instead. Right now they just play with them, but at least they don't scream when they see them. Also, both babies look really good as far as their skin is concerned, so I've been trying to eat dairy again. So far, so good. No more outbreaks of eczema. I'm hoping that they may have grown out of their allergy already, but I'm not pushing my luck. I'm still limiting dairy. But I must say that my cereal was extra delicious this morning with real milk. Yum! Other baby news is how mobile the boys are getting. They still don't crawl, but they roll over all the time, and they even choose to play on their tummies (something I had to make them do until now). Erik can also scoot on his bum. It's pretty slow, but it gets him where he wants to be. David is a rolly-polly. He can roll anywhere in the room, and he's getting pretty fast. Today he discovered the hanging blinds that cover our sliding glass door. I had to pull them back out of the way because no matter how many times I moved him, he kept finding his way back. His rolling never really seemed purposeful before, but I have to admit now that it is. Both babies also love "The Itsy Bitsy Spider," although they prefer Aunt Gi to sing it for them. As far as cute pictures for the week, Angee suggested trying to get their teeth. I tried. Here you go, Boo!

You'll have to look close to see David's tooth. It just barely came in on Tuesday. He's been really good and hardly fussy at all.



Erik's teeth were much harder to capture on film, but eventually he gave me a little grin. I just love his little hippo teeth!

YEA!. It must be so hard to handle TWO teething babies. I know I go insane with just one:) What a good mommie you are.

I can't believe you got a tooth shot! They are so protective of those teeth, it's so cute!

Very cute pictures. I'm glad they've been good for you even while teething. I can't get over their big blue eyes!

How cute are those teeth! When Eliza got her teeth in she cried all day long, count your lucky stars.

They are so cute!

I hope that the sippy cup thing works with them. That is what I did with Grant, but he had to take bottles while I was at work. It was either that or don't eat.... I promise that they won't nurse forever:).
