the adventures of Rosie & Mae Mae

Santa Claus
The North Pole

Rosie says: Help! I'm sitting on a throne of lies with this guy!

Mae Mae says: You smell like beef and cheese, you don't smell like Santa!

(This picture is for Grandma Rose who LOVES Santa. When she asked if we were going to do the whole Santa bit and I told her no, she sighed and said, "Well, please tell me you'll at least send them to a REAL school!" Haha, only my Grandma Rose!)

10 months

How I love these girls!

By 10 months, this is what we're doing! (Boy! Am I behind in the updates!)

Waving (started at 8 months) ... Paisley also used to do a high pitch "hiiiiiiiiiiiii" sounding noise along with her wave. It was funny! Paisley does the full arm wave, while Pem started doing just the fist clench and unclench wave. She's now doing the full arm wave as well.

Pem blows kisses. Though, she's confused and puts her hand over her eye to do it.

Both give kisses. Watch out, they could be wet ones!

Both give hugs. SO CUTE! They will give hugs to each other, which usually knocks them over.

Both clap. Adorbs.

Pem puts the phone up to her face like she's talking on it.

At about 8.5 months, they both would take a single step here and there. Just one. And very wobbly. The day before they turned 9 months, Paisley took 5 steps in a row, and then was off! Pem wasn't about to let her walk and leave her behind, so within the week, she was walking too. They both now walk everywhere!

As soon as Pem started walking, she started eating everything. Bugs, fuzz, paper, books, crumbs. Anything she found she would eat. Books have now been put away. DVD cabinet is locked. If you ever borrow and DVD from me and it has teeth marks all over it, that was Pem.

Oh, and if you have a stubborn sticker that just won't come off of something, Pem can get it off for you. Her teeth. Razor blades.

Paisley went through a phase where she seemed to get mad and then clench up everything and strain. It was pretty funny, but I'm glad it didn't last too long, haha!

"No" is now a fun game.

They love music. And certain commercials with catchy tunes. The National American University commercial's song is their favorite, and they will stop all they are doing to watch it. Including eating. They also love the theme songs from Downtown Abbey & The Office (and will dance to that one!).

I feel they are way too smart for their age. At 9 months they knew how to unscrew caps of off certain things, open the sliding closet doors ... others that I'm not thinking of at the moment. Keeps me on my toes!

Their only words are "mum mum mum mum mum" when they are tired, hungry or want me. It's so sad sounding!

Pem has 8 teeth, and Pais has 6.
