A Musical Interlude

Now that the twins are more stable while sitting, they are a lot happier about playing by themselves or near one another instead of needing to be constantly entertained by an adult (who would really rather be playing with plants). While they don't technically play with one another, they are more than happy to steal the other one's toy or smack the other one about the head with said toy.

This is where it's a really good idea to get toys that can't be lifted up as easily and swung around.
Emma works on her rendition of Chopsticks.

Musical toys are a good idea at this stage; music soothes the savage breast, after all and so long as it is the babies that are making the music and not a toy that plays Itsy Bitsy Spider in an infinite, tinny, electronica loop until you are driven to jabbing yourself in the ear with a awl...I'm perfectly fine with it.
Logan works on his Creativity skill.

Note how Logan isn't smashing Emma in the head with the piano or the stuffed turtle. Isn't music great?!
Logan and Emma perform a duet. Emma sings an aria from Carmen while Logan plays masterfully.

Hey Swistle, you'd better sign Henry up for those violin lessons soon!

Aw, NUTS! They've got him beat MUSICALLY, too! Ah, but have they mastered OIL PASTELS? (Quick, Henry: oil pastels!)

You've caught me out. Other than artistically covering themselves in green beans, orange carrots and assorted other foods, we've stayed away from painting.

Foiled!

You have the cuties!

Oliver has been playing the Piano with Marlena a lot lately, even during her lesson.

It is pretty cute.

Hey, they are no longer blobs! I just realized that they are really no longer blobs. And so cute!

I love Logan's hair. Yay to sitting up! Vs. spitting up, which isn't as cute.
