Sitting Around

Not that there was ever any question, but if we needed any more proof that Jackson is my son we have it. In general, Ella develops ahead of Jack. She leads the tooth race 5-0 (yup, she just got another one), smiled first, rolled over weeks ahead of her brother, and seems ready to crawl any second (while Jack is happy to just roll around). However, there's one area where Jack is kicking his sister's butt: sitting. That's right, my boy is awesome at sitting on his ass. Just like his daddy.

At the twins' last checkup, the doctor told us that they should be sitting better than they are. We hadn't really been working with them on sitting up because they were doing so great rolling around and didn't seem to want to sit still. Well, after the doctor's visit we (we being Shae) started working with the babies on their sitting.

A few weeks later, Jack is a sitting pro. We can sit him on the floor and he'll hang out for 15 minutes or so. Like I said, just like his daddy Jack is skilled at sitting around. Ella on the other hand has no interest in sitting, at least not when we want her to. When she's sitting in her bouncer she has no problem sitting up and looking around. If we sit her down on the floor, she just flops down and starts rolling all over the place. She's going to be super fun to chase when she finally figures out how to crawl. Yay.

Anyway, here's a pic of our baby boy sitting:



And just because, here's a pic of Ella (not sitting of course). There are a few new pics over in our gallery:
