Ryan looking adorable. Seriously, I love him in these pj's!
Ryan LOVES balls. Any shape, any size, he loves them! In fact, I've noticed when he plays with a ball he goes, "Ba, ba, ba!" One of his favorite games of late is playing catch with the ball. You roll it to him (and he does a decent job of "catching" it), and then he throws it back. That's not the uber-cute thing though. Apparently thinks he needs significant height to throw the ball, so he lifts it up against his forhead and then throws it. I've even seen him practicing his throwing on his own, and he gets so proud when he "launches" the ball!
Allie loves waving. Ryan waves too, on occassion, but Allie consistently loves it. If she even hears the words "hi" or "bye" she starts to wave, and she will now wave back if she sees you do it. The uber-cute thing? This morning they were watching a baby einstein movie (I'm slowly weaning them off from our sick movie-fest). When it was over - and I was taking them to their rooms for a nap...Ryan first - I kept seeing Allie waving at the screen (which I've seen her do before...only for this particular movie...). "Yes, the movie went bye-bye," I kept saying, thinking that the reason she was waving was because the movie was over. As I picked her up she kept smiling at the screen and waving, and I finally turned to see what might be making her wave like that. There is an animated rhino at the menu that stands and waves, and Allie was waving back!
Ryan - not quite up and not quite down...This isn't something they do, but both of their hair has really started to grow (yay!). The cutest thing is that Allie has a little curl (yes, a curl!!!) that constantly peeks out from behind one ear. Originally, I thought she had moused it to lay like that with some applesauce (she frequently uses food as a hair product), but was thrilled to discover that is just how this one adorable piece of hair chooses to lay. It is so adorable to see her playing, smiling, talking with one little curl peeking out. I love it!
Allie's curl...it took forever for me to get a somewhat decent picture!
Just for kicks: Allie woke up from her morning nap and THIS is what her hair looked like! Talk about adorable bed-head!
