Today both Eileen and Ewan independently ate yogurt and oats from a bowl with a spoon! They couldn’t finish the entire serving by themselves, but we’re pretty excited since we’ve been working on this skills for months.
The twins turned 8 months old two days ago! Eileen is really into sitting, puking, reaching for and sucking on things. She seriously throws up all the time. She happily sits, supported with pillows, for over an hour playing with toys. Ewan is backward crawling, rolling over, planking, bending his body, reaching for and licking things. Anytime something comes close to Ewan’s mouth he sticks his tongue out trying to lick it (it’s absolutely adorable). Ewan spends most of his time on his front side and Elieen spends most of her time sitting up. Ewan is able to sit as well, he’s just prefers being on his front. They both like sucking on their feet (and sometimes mine!). Changing diapers is an adventure, they both want to roll over and grab anything on the changing table (including the dirty diaper), they either keep their legs completely straight or totally bent. If you aren’t quick enough they grab the poop with their hands, and then you have a real mess to clean up.
