Clearly not ready for babysitting...

Not that I would leave our new baby with my 5 year old. But A is CLEARLY not ready for any type of babysitting! The girls have been playing baby non stop since Sam arrived. They are constantly stuffing their poor dollies up their shirts...asking me if I want to feel them kick...and then letting them drop out on the floor at their feet. They lift their shirts to feed the babies, make huge burping sounds, and role play the best of diaper explosions. But babysitting a REAL baby won't be happening anytime soon. This weekend the girls took their babies outside for a little backyard fun and this is how I found A's baby brood.
Gingerly suspended from the trapeze bars...with no net!

Abandoned in the grass...can you say chiggers?

In a heap at the bottom of the slide...face first!

So clearly we have some educating to do before any real babysitting takes place!
And speaking of babies...I can't post without a few updates of sweet Sam. He is doing great...such a fun little guy!
Here he is in his new bouncy seat...a seriously wise investment...he loves it!

Sweet little wrinkled baby hands!

And wrinkled feet too!

He is starting to really look towards voices...and has even flashed a few sweet smiles. I know, I know...it's just gas...but soon he'll be smiling for real!

And he is getting so much more alert! Here he is showing off his big melt-your-heart eyes!

Hi Jenn!!! Oh My!!! Babies suspended without a net... in a heap at the bottom of the slide... and left in hte grass for those "noseeums" to nibble on... *gasp*... LOL... someday they will both be WONDERFUL "sitters" I'm sure!!!

OH... how sweet your little Sam is... is that a dimple on the bottom of his foot?

No need for anyone to babysit but Auntie Kris! Though I do think it's sweet that the girls are attending to their babies' needs for recreation. And I'm glad they still think babies drop out of "stuffed shirts." If only it were true.
See you soon!
