Monkeyin' Around

My mom bought the Wonder Twins a great playmat with a rain forest theme for Christmas. They play in it every single day. They love looking at the lights and the toys that hang down.

In the past, they'd often kicked some of those toys by accident while "dancing" on their backs, but they'd never grabbed at the toucan or the giraffe. Until Friday, Feb. 19.

I'd just been asked by the pediatrition earlier that week if the girls were grabbing toys. I'd said "no" and mentioned that they were, however, firmly gripping our hands and their bottles. The doctor said toys would probably be the next step.

Apparently, Avery took that as a challenge. Two Fridays ago, she reached up and grabbed the orange monkey from the top of the rain forest. Geof was home at the time and captured this "first" feat on video. As you can see, she is clearly excited about her new move but is left a little confused as to where the monkey went! Geof's play-by-play offers more insight to this special moment. Check it out!

Alexa has not yet tried to emulate her sister's achievement. However, it's only a matter of time.

At least they're not pulling each other's hair. That's probably also only a matter of time. :)
