Who cries over a mobile?

I do, that's who... I was very sad that we had to take down Javi's mobile today. Okay, I didn't cry - but I was really close.  Ana and Javi both loved and still love this mobile.  They have spent so much time in his crib just watching it and listening to its sweet music.  It was a lifesaver for me when they were tiny babies. It would entertain them for a long time  :)  I took pictures of them today as they snuggled and watched the mobile after their naps.  It's crazy to compare todays picture to one I took when they were only about 2 months old.  (notice they are laying width-wise in the crib in the old picture and length-wise in the new picture) They grow too fast!

We took the mobile down because they can now pull up to their knees and are close to being able to stand in their cribs.  They can both sit and reach that little white knob used to hold the mobile to the crib.  They like sticking their fingers inside the little hole in the center of the knob. It's only a matter of time before they can pull it down.

Changing the subject - Javi now has 2 teeth. :)  This is the first picture I've taken where you can clearly see both teeth!  You might have to click on it to enlarge it.  Still no teeth for Ana.  Although I do think she tried to bite Javi today!  :)

We now brush his teeth every night before bed.  He loves it!  Somehow he knew what to do the first time we put that little rubber toothbrush thing near his mouth.  He opens wide at first and then just chews on the toothbrush.  Thank goodness he likes it - I'd hate for it to be a nightly struggle.

Not much else going on here and Blogger is being really annoying right now, so I am going to wrap up this post!  I will post again soon!

They look like actual kids in that second picture, laying down in the crib. My goodness!!!
