Sliding time

While we've taken and sent several pictures lately, we've been a bit remiss on the blog here's an overdue installment.

Grace and Dylan have gotten some new skills -- and sharpened some existing ones -- over the past month or so. Some notable items:
(1) Their proficiency in eating finger foods has increased. Dylan will eat practically anything, while Grace is a bit more discriminating in her tastes and sometimes gets rather vocal in her discontent!
(2) Both of them have gotten fairly good at drinking from sippy cups. They love running around with them, and often deposit them in random places.
(3) We've reduced them from 2 naps per day to 1 nap (early afternoon).
(4) They've recently learned how to climb stairs and go down their slide! They picked up the stairclimbing fairly readily, but needed a bit of assistance for some time with getting into sliding position and pushing off. Now it looks like they've reached independence in this regard. Look out below!
