Ry-guy sticking his hand through the play yard to get a toy...
Hands & fingers are attached to us, controlled by us, and fun to watch! They spend a lot of time looking at their fingers, touching them together, watching themselves touch other things. They think this is amazingly interesting - mommy thinks it's adorable.
One meal's worth of food...a dog would be handy...
The world around is full of objects that seem to be placed there for the sole purpose of allowing baby to pull to a standing position and hold onto. They think this is wonderful and try to do this a lot...like all the time. Mommy thinks they are growing up too fast.
The more mobility they have, the more they will attempt - and they will get into everything, quickly.
The more ability they have to communicate, the more they will let you know what they really think. Loudly. Often. Usually this has something do to with the food they don't want to eat.
Even when they're cranky and not feeling well, even when you've had babies vying for your arms and attention all day and you're tired, even when daddy is home to help out and you could use the help - there is something delightfully wonderful about your babies reaching for YOU or crawling over to be held by YOU. It really is wonderful to be "Mommy" :)
