Me and my girls had the day to ourselves. The boys have been with Grandma and Grandpa since yesterday. The girls and I went house hunting. They each took turns resting. We came home twice and went driving around 3 times. I have a list of 6 houses! SO EXCITING!
Bina smiling behind her binkie... Sometimes she sings too! Lalalalala.... so cute!
Between house hunting the girls and I had our first girls night out at the Olive Garden. YUM! They had soup and bread sticks and LOVED IT!!! They also shared some of my endless pasta bowl and salad!
We got tons of attention and I was called super mom a few times. I need to get a t-shirt made... SUPER MOM!!! Most are impressed by how I carry them. I will post a pick soon. Others are impressed with how well they are behaved! They were great!! Maybe we should make this a weekly event :)especially b/c we know most of the managers and always get something for free!!! :) When we are there... it's like family!

Our hands afterward! We found a great spot near Lake Vancouver. The boys had fun, but we didn't bring water and it got hot!!! Our trip was cut short but we did fill two larger plastic bowls.
The girls didn't get close. Sofi loved eating them, Bina didn't want any.
Aaron had a great idea to cut of branches so it was easier for the boys to pick without getting Ouchies!
Here is the man at work!!!

Rumor has it Uncle Nathan taught is daughter to say "I love you" by hitting herself on the head. We got to thinking... we should teach the girls how to communicate with their cousins!
SO HERE YOU GO! When you say... LOVE YOUUUU, they wack their own heads!!!!

I love watching all the ways my girls are the same (none) and all the ways my girls are different (endless). Even with all of their differences the girls adore each other and their world around them. They are now 16 months old, 13 months adjusted and I am so thankful to say I only have to clarify for about 2 more months. I watch the girls play with each other trying to find likenesses. And truly the only one I can find is that they are sisters. Sofi has wavy hair, Bina's curly. Bina's ears are loped and Sofi's are attached. Sofi has Aaron's pink skin and Bina, my darker skin. Bina's eyes are hazel (thanks to Nonnie and Grandma and Grandpa) and Sofi's eyes are brown. Their hair colors are so different but both do have blonde highlights. Bina loves to discover, explore and play cars with brothers, sound effects and all. Sofi, sits on my lap, scoots her bum forward and reclines on my lap or by my side to snuggle and watch everyone play. She does take part half of the time and squeels with excitment. Bina loves when Daddy throws her into the air, Sofi laughs and smiles because she is with Daddy, but would much rather snuggle. Bina eats with little mess and Sofi... well, get out the hose. As of now Sofi is using her right and left hand the same (maybe we will have one south paw like Daddy, the in-laws and cousin Adam (did I leave anyone out?)) and Bina prefers her right. Sofi is rounder Bina is taller. Sofi has a special middle toe on each foot, Bina does not. Their faces are shaped totally different, as well as their nose and their body frame. Bina STILL no teeth, Sofi has four!!! Sofi loves her blankey and Bina loves her binkie. Bina loves to chase and play with bugs, Sofi plays with flowers. Besides her skin tone Bina looks just like Daddy, as does Sofi like Mommy! What a great pair!!!

Yesterday Sabrina drank from a straw. Tichu and I were at Shari's and she did it! She figured it out... GO BINA!!! So now the girls are caught up with each other beside their voices and their talking style and Bina still has not teeth! No need for braes if she doesn't have any teeth!
We were also able to spend the morning and afternoon with GREAT GRANDMA AND GRANDPA! It was so much fun! OH NO!! WE DID NOT TAKE ANY PICTURES! Lord forgive us... maybe we will see them again before they head back to Mexico!

Sofi has a new tooth on the top, has for about 3 days. The second top one will be in tonight or the morning, but you can also see the other two top teeth coming in as well! She has woken up a few times in the middle of the night. Nothing a mommy can't fix with a few rocks in the chair! She is a wonderful young lady!

Pajammie Ice Cream!
The kids take a bath, get jammies on and we announce... PAJAMMIE ICE CREAM! We all hop in the car and get ice cream in PJ's! Tonight we celebrated Tichu's birthday!!!
When the plane flies by watch Bina's lips. Tichu taught her to blow raspberries as the plane's sound. You can see her lips, but we were right near the airport so you can't hear her!!! The boys were having fun playing tag!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TICHU!!!

TRAVEL BLANKIE! FINALLY! My sis made 3 small travel blankets. When I showed Sofi two she grabbed them then walked to the third one (made her work for it) and went to a hiding place to look and hold all three. She didn't realize she left one behind, but one had a different color green than she is used to... and she looked at that one funny but still loved them all. Thumb in mouth, pure joy, pure relaxation!!!
Before travel blankie... sticker tongue out at Aunt Erinn!
This means.... Where is my binkie... the noise with it... uggghhhughhhh!
Sofi's cutie toes!
