{day 1}

The first thing I see in the morning

Such a sweet sight

met with "mama, mama, dada, dada"

and baby giggles

C always wants to be first

but he is learning to let D go first

They let me know they are awake

by talking to eachother in their special language

D pulled up to standing for the first time three days ago

C could climb out anyday
