Standing?

video

This video has a lot of Bethany and Jonas in it, but you have to pay special attention to Rebekah. She is trying to stand on her own!

Sleeping Sisters


Super Aunt Sarah got both girls to go to sleep without having any beds for them to sleep in! Matt was sick today so was sleeping in his bed, and Jonas was sleeping in Bethany's bed. I had Bethany lay down on the couch with no expectations of her falling asleep, but she did! Aren't they cute?

Bethany (to Rebekah): You're best my friend!

A couple of questions later, Bethany's dense parents realized she was calling Bekah her best friend!

Babies Everywhere!


All of the Roberts crew came over for Lisa's birthday over the weekend, and brought babies! We had a tun of fun playing with everyone. There's nothing like a house with 6 babies 2 and under!

Sand!



Bethany and Bekah went to the "beach" at the Eastern Hills mall over the weekend. They had so much fun playing in the sand!

Power-nap

Earlier this afternoon, I put Bekah on the floor to finish her bottle, and she promptly fell asleep thusly:
It wasn't long until she startled herself awake, only to fall asleep again almost immediately:

She woke up 15 minutes later, ready to face the world; I'll wager it was her first power-nap!

Big Grins

Rebekah has the cutest smile ever! I love when she notices me across the room and lights up. Kind of like this.

Bethany built domino towers yesterday, which she referred to as "books" for some strange reason. She even asked her dad to read them!

Daddy (referring to a story in Bethany's picture Bible): How do you make God happy?
Bethany: Kiss Him.
Daddy: What else?
Bethany: Be nice.

Walking!! Kind Of

My little drool monster is walking! Well, not really. She grabs onto the nearest chair and pushes it along so she can walk. I guess cruising just isn't good enough. It won't be long now until she goes solo!
