double whammy!

penny decided to CRAWL and say her first word today -- MAMA!
here's a little bit of the crawling. mama video in the works!

(also, we're working on teaching zack to "share" -- can you tell?!)

in her shoes

penny finally fits into the adoreable shoes mom bought her in block island last summer. at the time they seemed sooo tiny, but it's taken her over 7 months to fit into them!

loving his sister...

lately, zack can't get enough of penny. he's turned (though probably briefly) into her biggest fan. here are some highlights from this week:

zack has been saying "penny on truck", asking that we put her on... (though sometimes he changes his mind and regrets this..)together on the big chair...

"hold penny", asking to hold her. awwww....

double bath

zack and penny shared their first bath together! fun for them, kinda stressful for mom (tricky logistics, getting them out and dried, etc...)

things we do on rainy days

we build forts,we take pictures of ourselves in the bathroom mirror,
we put on sunglasses just for fun (zack calls them "movie stars"),
maybe the rain isn't so bad after all.

one sunny day

we literally had one sunny day this week:

chomp, chomp, chomp...

i think penny is wanting some of her big brother's solid foods, don't you? (notice how he gets immediately jealous and says "all done!" a bunch of times. silly guy.)

first fat lip

this is what happens when you run around the hardwood floors in your favorite shoes.

the thing that comes before crawling

penny's been rocking on all fours for the past week and a half.  she likes to practice, especially in her crib.  

here's some footage of penny from last weekend.  which by my calculations means we're going to have our hands full veeeery soon...

grampy stopped by for a visit this morning.  zack & grampy have identical brown crocs.  how cute is that?
PS:  happy 21 months, zack!  it's about that time when people ask me how old you are, i'm going to start saying "he'll be 2 in september"...

zack's current chalkboard wall drawing:
and here is a painting by cy twombly, the famous abstract expressionist:

meme and papa lou

today, zack and penny had a nice lunch visit from meme and papa lou.  they spent time reading zack's current favorite book, "everyone poops" and watching little piggy penny eat pears and cereal
