Cara is now walking down the steps standing up, but still using two feet per step. She is very, very independent, but still loves to copy whatever her sister does or says. She likes to sit on the kitchen counter and watch Beth do whatever. She is still a big mess at the table - yesterday we had spaghetti and that Texas Toast garlic bread with cheese. She ate the spaghetti with her hands, and after licking the cheese on the garlic bread, she peeled it off bit by bit to eat just the cheese, then somehow ate a hole in the middle of the bread, and was trying to put the bread on her arm like a bracelet.
Both girls are very scared of thunder - Cara probably only because Anna screams whenever she thinks she hears a little thunder. When a tiny roll of thunder came during naptime and Anna freaked out, I tried to calm her down by saying it was just the sky burping a little, and she just needs to say, "Excuse you, sky!" That seemed to work, a little, we'll see. But now whenever she gets scared by thunder, she says, "I'm scared of the burping!"
