We have a splasher!

The babies had baths today, and Ellen learned a new trick...

Splahsing! She was having so much fun I almost didn't want to take her out of the tub. She was kicking her legs and slapping her hands into the water and loving every minute. It was absolutely adorable!

The bad news is that Ellen's splashing happened so fast and unexpectedly (and we were trying to hurry to get everyone ready) that I didn't get a video. I'll be more prepared next time.

Until now both twins have been pretty sedate in the tub. For a long time Cole would even get nervous and concerned when I poured water on him. He has started smiling when he gets wet now, but he still clasps his hands right in front of his mouth, takes a deep breath when the water pours over him, and chews his fingers for comfort while I bathe him. He's pretty cute.

It's pretty insane how big Ellen and Cole are getting. Cole can now pull his paci out and get it back in his mouth all by himself. They are both reaching and grabbing for everything in sight (including my hair...ouch!), and Ellen has even stolen Cole's paci twice! Each time he tries to get it back it results in a 7-month-old version of Tug of War. Cole and I have broken up the competition both times, but I'm already having visions of fierce fights in the future.

Pray for me... :)
