A Few of our Favorite Games

I love having special little games to do with my girls.  Lately, something special Cohen and I have been doing is playing "hair salon".  It started with me blow drying her hair after her baths and while I would dry it I would put her on the counter and just ask her questions.  At this age it is so fun to get her take on things and to hear her describe things in her own words.   I wish I would have a tape recorder going on some of our conversations.  You never know what she is going to say.  She loves it though and we now will do it when I fix her hair in the mornings and still when we blow dry.  Last night I took a few pictures of her and she was really in a silly mood.  I love these little special moments though and I know they will be the ones to always stick out in my mind.  

Kate also is loving our playtime.  I didn't get a picture of this, but this girl is good at playing ball with me :)  I'm amazed that she can catch on so quick at such an early age.  I will throw a little squishy ball to her and she will pick it up, shake it around, then sling it back.  I know its a simple concept but I think its so cute!  She also thinks its a fun game to drop stuff and see if you will pick it up for her.  After about 3 pick ups I am done with that game.  She is a little mess.  Today I kept catching her under things as you can see.  One is a little blurry because I didn't have time to get a good focus in order to catch her.  You have to be quick with Kate because she moves fast!  I get a good workout chasing her :)
