Mouth: perfect storage area

Adella has always kept her mouth clear of toys and small objects, even when she was a baby.  This is the reason we struggle with Zack and his persistent need to have something in his mouth- whether it's a carpet strand, tiny hair band, rocks, or larger blocks.  I feel like I spend half of most days clearing his mouth out.  So when he is willing to crawl around with large toys in his mouth, I don't mind (at least they aren't quickly down the hatch).  In fact he likes a lid from Adella's tea-set and crawls around with it clenched in his teeth while blowing raspberries on it.  So when I found his mouth occupied by a completely different toy, I couldn't help but laugh.
This is one of Delli's Little Mermaid toys.

Steps: physical progression

I am only writing quickly and have no pictures to accompany this post, but it is great news!  Both of our little ones are hitting milestones right now.  Adella is in the middle of potty training and has caught on fantastically!  The next news just makes me shiver apprehensively.  Zack took his first unaided and purposeful step yesterday!  He did it twice at our encouragement.  These kids are so amazing and watching them grow is overwhelming at times.

As a side note, our home is feeling homey and becoming ours with every moment spent here.
