Vampire babies sipping on True Blood, or
human babies eating pureed purple carrots….
Yes, I am a fan of all things vampire… I am sure the twins will not think this is funny later.
Oh-Well kids, this is what happens when you cause your mom to be completely sleep deprived!
I have been practicing “Natural Infant Hygiene” (or “Elimination Communication“) for just over a month now with both Sophia and Cameron. Sophia took to the idea very quickly and within a few days of just sitting on the toilet, on May 19th she peed in it and did it 3 times that day! and every day after….
Very soon after, she started hollering to let me know she had to pee or poop. She sometimes wears the same diaper for multiple hours.
Today for the first time, she gave the sign (yes, we have been practicing sign language too) for toilet and I took her to the toilet and she peed immediately.
Who would have thought the first sign language that one of the kids gave us would be toilet! So proud of my smart little girl!
Cameron also pees and poos on the toilet, he just doesn’t let me know when he has got to go, not yet anyways.
Here is a picture of her on her toilet (diaper is covering her “lady parts”).
Today is the 7 month Birthday for Cameron & Sophia.
Here are their stats for today
Cameron – 12 lbs 6 oz and 24 ¼” long
Sophia – 12 lbs 0 oz and 24 ½” long
Tanya introduced the twins to real food today. Well, by real food I mean baby food. …and by baby food I mean peas.
By some unnatural occurrence, our kids like peas. Peas!? Does anyone like peas? I don’t.
After peas they had pears. Pears I’m ok with. Here’s Cameron trying out peas…
Sophia liked the peas too. She did take a few tries to warm up to them though.
Here’s some video of their fun…
I got to spend some time alone with the kids today. As luck would have it, they got really upset once Tanya left. Cameron stopped his crying for a few minutes to down a bottle, but Sophia wouldn’t eat. After his bottle, Cameron & Sophia were inconsolable for over an hour. Cameron’s max-volume crying ended as soon as I brought out the camera.
Why didn’t I try that sooner?
Well, the twins had their first “fight” today. They were playing in the living room and one of them went Mike Tyson on the other. It was over quickly…one punch to the face. I’ll let you decide who won…
Tanya and Cameron played outside today while Sophia took a nap. Here are some shots!
The twins still have a ways before they can sit up on their own or crawl, but they sure like to practice.
Cameron likes to sightsee. Sophia likes to nap. Either way, walks are great!
