Since the last time I have written Sophia has her 5th tooth and we are still awaiting Bina's first. She has been pretty fussy today, which is unlike her. There is some redness in her gums so we are thinking it is teeth!!! Last week some time Bina also ate a poisons berry .. POKEWEED! I called 911 who connected me with Poison Control. We had a bush out in front that we thought was pretty landscaping... NOPE A WEED!!! Carolyn told us it was a weed and we didn't care b/c it looked nice. THEN WE CUT IT ALL OUT! Humans would have to eat over 20 berries in order for it to be toxic. Away it went anyhow!!! We still kept our eye on her and she was just fine. I am impressed with poison control. The called me 2 hours after to make sure she was ok. What a great resource. Both are playing so well with their brothers and each other. Occasionally they get mad at each other and whack each other on the head. It is usually Bina whacking Sofi b/c Sofi is stealing from Bina. We call he Swiper. Then there are time they both want one chair and then they both whack at each other at the same time!!! Kinda funny!!! Bina is still Miss Independent and Sofi is even more Drama Queen!!! They are also beginning to say some more words. They actually know what they are saying!!! See if you can translate.
They are also signing: please, more, Love you, eat and all done on a regular basis. I LOVE WHEN CAN COMMUNICATE!!! Adds a new element of joy. Tah tah for now!!!!
I have not updated much lately! With homeschooling and all the new house stuff, we have been busy! I am going to write to tell about each experience and how God is right there the whole way very soon! I am committing to getting it done in the next few days!
This is Sofi eating a PB&J with Aunt Audra. On this day, I was not feeling well and the girls were on opposite sleep schedules. So that I could rest, Audra took Sofi out for the afternoon. They went to her house and a fish store! I put her down to nap afterward and she rested her head on her pillow looking up at me saying, "MOM THAT WAS SO FUN!". Usually she is standing in her bed as I walk out. Not that day. Well, I thought for sure that she would sleep well, but NOPE... sister wasn't in there so she did not sleep at all. If it were Bina... NO PROBLEM! But Sofi loves having people around always. This is why her special time with Aunt Audra and Uncle David was so special!
Sofi likes to take off her socks, while Bina leaves them on. Bina makes little mess when eating and Sofi, well, paints her head and arms with food when she eats. After discussing this with my friend Leslie, I realize the only thing they have in common is their last name. THEY ARE SISTERS!!!
