Bananas, Carrots, and Rock & Roll!

So over the weekend the twins tried bananas for the first time, and they were a BIG hit. They actually get mad when they run out so I let them chomp the spoon!

I also now have TWO teething babies! Cavan has the starting of a tooth breaking through now too! They are both chomping on anything they can get in their mouths so I wanted to test out a tip my pediatrician gave me, give them carrots! Not baby carrots, obviously, but large, washed, and peeled carrots. Well they worked great! They could really grip them easily and just gnawed away! And hey, if they get a little Vitamin A in the meantime... Bonus!

When they were over this fad, they tossed them to the ground and were gone forever:

Teether and Dog treat all in one! And if you're skeeved to see them eating the carrots covered in baby drool, they also eat their spit up and try to roll in the poop diapers when I change them on the floor. Drool doesn't sound so bad anymore, does it?

We also rocked out today. They seemed bored with their normal toys and since my paycheck comes in the form of whatever I find in the laundry, I improvised... spoons and tupperware! They loved it. Although I'm pretty sure Kaylie is going to be a baker instead of a drummer... See!

This is awesome! My son is breaking 3 top teeth all at once right now and I never thought of using carrots!

Although I just went to the store today, I think I'll make a second trip tomorrow. Thanks so much for the tip!

I have heard of the carrot tip but never tried! Good to know its a good one!

My parents dog LOVES anything disgusting that is baby related. Just be careful though because he got into an entire tub of aqufor and was borderline hospitalized!

Been following your blog for awhile but I'm not sure I've ever commented. I also am a fellow mommy of two! Your kiddos are adorable! Kaylie looks like a doll in some of your pictures. She is so cute she almost doesn't look real!
