You're So Vain! I Bet You Think This Post is About You, Don't You?

Yesterday I had a play date with two work friends. We're going to try to do it once a week or every two weeks. Cynthia's little girl is 3 months old and so we pick up the tricks of the trade from her. Since her daughter was so taken by a mirror I thought I'd try it on my kids. Someone thinks he's pretty handsome!

It was interesting to see how both moms were so attentive to each little signal from their daughters - always picking up, etc. if they think their child is upset. To be honest I really only do that if one kid is crying - really crying. I guess I have a pretty high level of fussiness. Plus sometimes I'm feeding one kid so the other has to wait. My mom had to do the same thing with us three but that never made me any better about waiting my turn.

Ned is reaching for things and even seems to play a little with one of the toys I got them. Unfortunately he also seems to be cross-eyed so I'll have to mention that to the pediatrician when I see her in a couple of weeks. Penny is a little wiggle worm on her tummy even when she's crying bloody murder. I predict she'll crawl first but that Sir Squeaks-and-Grunts-a-lot will talk first. He even makes this cute cooing sound once in a while that Husband and I both love.

The newest colors for baby girls seems to be pink and brown. Here is Penny modeling a onsie:

Sometimes I have to put the laptop down to attend to a kid - wherever is convenient:

Super cute! Mirrors are always good times.

Ohhh - I love the pink and brown :)

And we have that same mirror. It's in the car though.

I wouldn't worry TOO much about the cross-eyed thing. Burke was a little bit at that age as well. The Pedi told us that it's normal at this age and most kids grow out of it. She did suggest an eye exam when he was a little bit bigger though - just to be sure. We did, he's fine. :)

Veronica Mars, huh? Might have to check that one out :)

Very cute! I'm glad you had fun with the work ladies and their babies. BTW, another woman in our group at work is preggers -- P.L.

Does the laptop go to sleep if you put it in the swing? :-)
