Getting Out!!

We attended our first playgroup this past Thursday. My neighbor Kelly, has started a playgroup for her church and extended an invitation. So we packed the kiddos up and headed to the park. It turned out to be a very nice day. I took the camera along so as not to miss any cute pictures, and then in the bustle, forgot it in the car. We went on the swings, down the slides and rode the teeter-totter. I keep saying, "I can't wait until they can walk and run around" and then I remember how hard it is to keep track of them just crawling and think I better just sit back and enjoy this time before the races begin.

It was great to get away from the house and enjoy the blue skies. We are lucky to live in Southern California and able to get out even during the winter, but the warm weather was definitely a bonus. This was the only picture I got, after we got home, but as you can tell, the babies were happy to get some rest after a hard day of play.

Since the babies were about 4 months, they have had Early Intervention, Monday and Wednesday mornings. Audra, the crews teacher, comes for a couple hours and works with them on developmental skills. This last week, Audra was working with them on self-recognition. She put a sticker on their nose and had them look in a mirror to see if they would recognize themselves in the mirror and take the sticker off their nose.


Well, they aren't quite there yet, but they were very interested in the stickers on everyone else's nose.

They were also working on hearing the "p" sound, as in pop the bubbles. Hailey really enjoyed the bubbles.
