A climber, a singer, a laundry basket, two standing babies and teething

The girls are going through a few teething pains and we had a few rough moments this weekend with extreme clingyness and a lot of crying. As long as both Darren and I were both within about six inches of them, they seemed okay. It looks like Brooklyn has her second tooth coming in so hopefully she'll start feeling better soon.

Brooklyn is now climbing up the stairs (see video below). The first time she did it, she climbed up those stairs so fast at a frantic pace giggling like a manic (with Darren right there in case she slipped). She also tried this morning to climb on top of her toy kitchen set by placing her knee on top of the toy stove. She would have succeeded if I hadn't pulled her off. She is a wild little monkey girl. Anne also told me at daycare she succeeded in climbing up the ladder of the plastic slide and going down head first. And she's not even walking yet. It's funny that we knew Brooklyn would be our wild girl even in the NICU and especially that first week home

Bailey can pull herself into a standing position now! The only problem is she hasn't learned yet how to sit back down (or is too afraid to). So after she is standing for a while, she just starts crying until you come over and sit her back down. It is so funny. Darren also took a video of her baby babbling and I swear she is singing along to the ABC song (see video below).

Darren also put the girls into the clothes basket for an indoor ride. They love this so much. Brooklyn holds on and makes little vroom type of noises. The first time Bailey went in there, her mouth was just wide open in delight. So adorable. Darren's mom said his dad used to do the same ride for him and his sister when they were little.
