June with the Harrison Girls

Aubrey is really into shoes right now. She is surprisingly good at walking in mommy's shoes, which she loves to try on. 

You may also notice her short haircut and cool new glasses. She is growing up really quickly! She helps with the silverware.

Beth is starting to feed herself. She wants to grab the spoon all the time and took to the sippy cup with no problem. I was dreading introducing it because Aubrey was so resistant to it. I should know by now that these two have their own personalities and do things their own way!

Grandma Janis sent a Little People Ark to the girls and they love it. They both play with it almost everyday. It has given us a reason to teach Aubrey the word, "Peacock."

Aubrey loves "Signing Time" and she has learned a ton of signs. It has really helped boost her confidence with communication and build her vocabulary. She watches it (at least) once a day. 

She loves cuddling in blankets and cocooned herself here even though we have the AC going non-stop. 

We once got a book from the library about a cat who made a train out of colored chairs. That was months ago, but I guess Aubrey remembers it because she has been making trains with her colored chairs.

Climbing Beth

Beth really loves finding little spots to stick herself. This picture was taken a few weeks ago, so she has now moved on to a lot more adventurous spots. She is a big climber and, unbeknownst to me until it was happening, learned to climb the stairs. Luckily our baby gate had never even been put away from Aubrey's unsteady climbing period.

My Girls Playing Together

This scene doesn't always play out like this, but it is getting more frequent. These little girls are learning how to play together. As you can see they are great at making messes. Aubrey can be a little possessive of toys and her space, but she likes making Beth laugh and trying to help her with eating and other things that she thinks she needs help with. Beth is fascinated with everything Aubrey does and always wants to be right where she is. They are pretty sweet with each other most of the time and bring a lot of joy to our family.

Coo-KIE? Coo-KIE?

I found Aubrey just like this one morning. She had pulled a chair up to the counter, opened this container, and was just standing there looking when I discovered her. She clearly knew that she had hit the jackpot based on that smile. But she hadn't touched the cookies at all. I took a video of her showing me the sign for cookie and after that she did start to dig in.
