I feel like time is flying, and I don't even know where to start. I could write a book each day describing the girls, and the funny or cute or new stuff they're doing. And the next day I'd have to do it all over again.

Their relationship with each other is evolving. Yesterday Saoirse wanted Rowan to play with her, and she came over to where Rowan was standing and grabbed her hand. She pulled her along, saying "Walky! Walky!", which is what they say to us when they want us to follow them. They are so used to sharing and taking turns that they have started enforcing that themselves. They initiate trades with each other if they want something the other has. If I had one of them a cracker, they hold out their hands for another one for their sister. Their high chairs sit near each other, and they routinely trade food or cups throughout their meals. It's amazing to me how well they have worked out what belongs to which girl, even when I think they both own it together. We have stuffed kittens, and each girl knows that the ginger colored one is Saoirse's and the Siamese one is Rowan's. The "mouse cookie" book belongs to Rowan. Apparently my mom's cat Maggie belongs to Rowan, because she loves her more. Froggie is Rowan's. They know which rocking horse goes with which girl. Funny to see their preferences becoming clearer.

The girls learned about tools this week at Grandma and Grandpa's house, and now they go around "fixing" everything. Yesterday they spent about 20 minutes taking turns putting plastic coins in a play cash register at Rita and Noah's house. It's always fun to take them to new environments like that, to see what they gravitate towards. It's easy to forget how fast they're changing when we stay home too much.

Saoirse loves puzzles:

I love it when Rowan walks like this, with her hands behind her back.

Here's an example of them taking turns, in this case riding Daddy's guitar case and using it for a Hotwheels ramp:
