|Weeks 19, 20, and 21|
The last 3 weeks have taken us to San Antonio, Orange, back to San Antonio, San Marcos, Wimberley, and back home again. In the mean time, Owen and Mason have gotten cuter and cuter.
Mason and Owen have had a big job this week. They helped Great-Numna celebrate her 85th birthday and they helped cheer up Great-Great-Aunt Bee after losing her husband, Roy, of 67 years on Monday. They did a great job!
Owen has really started reaching for toys now. This skill has been in the works but now you can tell him, "here, hold this" and he'll take it from you (and put it straight in his mouth). He has gotten so good at reaching and grabbing that he has reached for Mason's face a few times and grabbed his pacifier.
A few days ago I walked in on the babies laying on the floor together just staring at each other and cooing. They were having their first mini-conversation and it was precious! I wonder what they were talking about!
We let Owen try some rice cereal last weekend (Mason was already down for the night). He seemed to like the taste but he didn't quite know what to do with it after I put it in his mouth. He'll figure it out. The next day, Mason held his bottle all by himself for almost the entire feeding! My life is about to get easier!
Yesterday (9/30) was a big day for Mason. I noticed that he was really watching my mouth when I was talking to him. I stuck my tongue in and out at him and he stuck his tongue back out at me! He also rolled from his front to back during tummy time last night. He loved his new trick that we couldn't keep him on his tummy because he would flip right back over!
