So Many Stories

Here are some of my favorite recent pictures of the girls. Each one has its own story but that's a lot to write so I'll just show the moment and share a couple of sentences about each:

Skipper was watching Abs eat and seemed to be trying to copy her. Not long before she's on solids herself (sigh)

Abs had been sick for a few days and was getting so antsy that I decided to give her a little time outside. She was so happy to be in the sunshine!

A gift from Grandma... she won't wear a hat (only if we call it a helmet) but a feather boa and heels are ok

Skipper discovered that the camera can be caught so close ups are difficult to get now, but worth the risk to capture those beautiful eyes

We spend so much money on teethers, rattles, etc. when all she really wants are her own toes

Jared pulled out his old marble track when Abs was sick. She did surprisingly well with helping put it together and loved putting the marbles in the top "by self".

One of our many trips to the park. They always seem to intrude on Skipper's nap time so she gives out some of her rare grumpy faces

Classic Skipper, she is so happy all the time

Bubble Wand

I've been walking to the park a few times a week with the girls. We're trying to help Soda (and myself, truth be told) lose some weight and it's also a great way for Abs to get some energy out before nap. She has a new bubble wand that she was excited to try out so we took it with us. It's awesome because she just twirls around and it make bubbles, then she runs after them trying to catch them on the wand. While I was happy with the bubble solution it came with, the refill we have really sucks so I'm going to try a formula I found online. Hopefully it will make for some stronger bubbles. I took a few dozen pictures, but here are just a few:

I love Soda in the background begging us to put down the bubbles and throw the frisbee for her.
