6 months old!

S&S Update:
S&S are six months old today! This time six months ago, Chetan and I didn't know we'd be parents by this afternoon :) But that's a story for another day....
They are both so much fun right now that it makes me kind of sad thinking about them growing up so quickly. Sahil's becoming quite an active lil boy who loves to jump and climp all over whoever's holding him. He's also getting to be really loud. Samira's still all smiles. We're blessed to have generally happy, easy-going babies (hope I don't jinx myself!) , which we try to keep in mind on the nights when they don't want to go to sleep and are so cranky....which is happening a lot more often lately!
S&S have been eating cereal for a couple weeks now and yesterday had their first veggie. I made them organic peas, which Samira liked a lot and Sahil tolerated but wasn't thrilled about. Sahil thinks it's fun to blow raspberries with a mouthful of peas...guess he doesn't know yet that his Mommy is a bit of a neat freak. He better learn that one quick! Of course our house is looking less and less like one of a neat freak...
S&S are both rolling over and now prefer to sleep on their bellies. Samira sleeps sprawled out like a frog and Sahil likes to be bum-up with his knees tucked under.
On Saturday, S&S were playing on a blankie on the living room while Chetan and I were getting ready. Sahil flipped on his belly and turned so his head was near Samira lil feet. She started tapping him with her feet, which made him laugh so much! His laughter got Samira laughing and they both were just cracking up at each other. It was so precious! Usually Sahil doesn't even acknowledge Samira so it was so fun to see them interact with each other. Yesterday at daycare I was playing with both of them and took a ball that was near Sahil and gave it to Samira. Sahil eyed that ball with a look like "hey, that's mine!" Starting already...
S&S's Dadi came to visit them. They were very comfortable with her and we all had a lot of fun during her visit. Samira sat in her swing one last time before we sent it off to Roshni in India. She's due December 26th! Hopefully the swing will be as much of a livesaver for her as it was for us. Chetan and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversry on Saturday July 12th. I can't believe it's already been 5 years!
