What a week…

Posted by D under family

The teething got worse. At least for H2. She now is also cutting two of her lower front teeth. Last night she was having nightmares and was screaming and crying more or less from 11pm till 5am. Not a good night – to say the least. S2 on the other hand slept through all of the crying and screaming (but we did of course take H2 downstairs after a while).

The day today brought many news-worthy events. First, we went to our veterinarian clinic (Northwest Neighborhood Vet on NW 26th and Thurman – highly recommended if you are in Portland) – one of the doctors there had called earlier this week and asked us to come by to pick up a surprise for the girls. A friend of hers makes toddler and children furniture and she made two little step stools for our girls. What a wonderful gift! They have their names and artists renderings of Reggie and Ollie (or I should say, of a Corgi and a black and white short hair cat). Too cute.

The girls both loved them and sat down on them the moment we put them in the living room. Of course they can’t read yet, so each sat down on her sisters step. Oh well. The other picture shows a bit that H2 wasn’t feeling to well. I still think they are way cute!

Then we went to a toddler class called “Bubbles, Balls & Bean Bags” at the local community center. Given that the girls weren’t exactly at their personal best this went very well. They were running around and playing for quite a while. Towards the end they decided that they were done early – which is okay. Lots of fun – and two more of these classes the next two weekends!

After their nap I spent some time with the girls and K2 went wine shopping with Judie (with very promising results, I might add). The girls weren’t exactly angels the whole time, but they displayed some very charming behaviors. As she had done before, S2 kept taking care of H2. Bringing her a binky when she seemed upset, petting her back, even bringing her their favorite toy (toy cell phones that actually ring – don’t ask).

And there’s another new thing we saw yesterday for the first time. Really cooperative play and actual conversation about it. They were holding hands and rocking back and forth. When one stopped the other would make the sign for “more”, they’d look at each other and continue.

They are such big girls…
