It's Teething time

This week has been a little rough for Silas and Grace. They can't seem to get comfortable or be relaxed when their chompers hurt so bad. Poor Grace is not a happy camper like she normally is and it's affecting her sleep. Silas has his moments and I do all I can to help him rub his gums with teething toys from the freezer, but sleeping is tough. While I know this will pass it's hard to believe that we ever made it with such little sleep before when waking up every four hours now wears me out. I can't wait to see what they look like when those little teeth finally make an appearance.

Feeding time has been fun and they really starting to get the hang of it. We have a pretty good system down. Silas of course out shines Grace in the eating category, but she is catching up. It's easy to see he is such a boy with the way he is always smacking his hand on the tray wanting more, while Grace just sits chewing her fingers patiently waiting. The favorite food so far is bananas, Grace just loves it. Sarah is making our own baby food and has had some success with bananas and pears. It is really tough to find organic fruits and vegetables around Portage for some reason though.

Silas doesn't seem to be getting any better at rolling over and I'm not sure why, since he is strong enough and mobile enough... he just doesn't seem interested. The one thing he loves is his jumping toy, he can sit in there forever and never seems to get bored. Grace on the other hand is a rolling machine, the second you put her down she rolls onto her stomach and pushes up to look around. She also tries to sneak out of her bumbo and has no interest in being in there anymore.

As for me. school is going great; staying up on homework and still working on recipes for cupcakes and cookies. I found out bananas will not cook right in the form of cupcakes. The center fell right in and the taste was like a sweet banana bread, which tasted great but looked terrible ... so on to a different recipe.
