Today was filled with changes. Josie has now become too active for her swing...and Noah's determination hold onto the seat while she's in it has raised safety concerns. So, after one final joy ride we packed it up into the garage. We were so dependent on both of our swings for so long that our home doesn't look the same without them. Replacing the swing is their new toy-chest. We were able to rearrange the furniture to look much more like our living room pre-parenthood, which feels a little odd for Ben and I. Finally, while Josie's been scooting short distances for some time now it often seemed as though she thought her belly was stuck to the floor. But today, something in her shifted and she had a great time scooting and crawling all over the house. This new-found mobility makes her much more interested in interacting and playing with her brother which is so much fun to watch.
For good measure, here's a picture of the two of them in their swings when they were one month old.
