A month is a long time in the life of a little person. Here are some things that happened while we were away…
Ben learned to swim — actually swim, by himself all the way across the pool. He had been getting pretty good before our trip, but with having a pool available every day, he finally got to the point where he could come up for air and then continue on his way. By the end of the trip he was doing cannon balls and pencil dives in the deep end!
Abi still refuses to really try swimming without her floaty on — although I did get a few paddles out of her on a couple occasions (and I have the desperate scratches on my chest to prove it!) but we did finally talk her into jumping in!
Eli had just started crawling on Christmas Eve, but all the space in our Florida home gave her room to really improve her speed and confidence. She does it with a cute little determined stomp of each hand. In the last couple days there she started pulling herself up to standing as well! She also cut tooth number three while we were there!
There’s one more cute video on Vimeo, but you’ll have to stop by there to check it out!
