Veronica and Madeleine are very social and becoming more so every day. People watching while out and about makes their day. Seeing them wave goodbye and (even more importantly) being greeted with ear-to-ear grins when we come home is heart wrenching. It seems that their social needs are becoming more important as their language develops. Clearly "buhh" means 'ball' and "buht" means book. While it is sometimes difficult to discern, knowing which they want can be the difference between a happy baby... and a less happy baby.
Here are some recent pictures of them with socializing other people.
Heidi took them out to cheer on their Grandpa Tom and his friend Wally at the City of Lakes Loppet.
M and V hosted another set of twins and were quite generous with their string cheese.
Maddie seems to have been a bit overwhelmed by the sheer chaos of babydom when Heidi's new mothers came to celebrate having survived the first year. Everyone had a lot of fun (including Maddie).
