Challenges and accomplishments...

All of Heidi's sisters have left, except for one and the wedding was supposedly a lot of fun! It was fun to see lots of family and have people loving on our girls all week! Before he left, we got cousin Jack (Brian's cousin from Australia) to hold the girls, which he had been avoiding all week. After giving it a try, he really seemed to enjoy it! His quote of the week was "Wow, they have really small fingernails!" which made us all laugh! Here is a picture of Jack and the girls....

Brian has left for his vacation to Florida and the girls miss him terribly! It's been a challenging week in our house, since the day he was leaving I got sick. With the help of Heidi and her sister Melly, I got some medicine and have started to feel a lot better! Caring for the girls all alone, day and night, is a tough thing. After being with them all day, I always look forward to Brian coming home so that I can have a break and some adult conversation. We've been managing well, but it's hard to push back the feelings of jealousy that Brian is relaxing on a beach, going on fishing trips and enjoying meals in the warm weather, while I'm at home dealing with cranky, teething babies! Thankfully, they are the cutest things I've ever seen so it makes it all worth it! All in all, I'm pretty proud of myself for being able to handle two 4.5 month olds for 5 days, so that Brian can get some much needed relaxation and fun! Now if only someone would realize how badly I could use a vacation too, then we'd all be happy! :)

The girls are really changing recently! They can roll both directions now, so we can no longer safely leave them on the bed. Blankets on the floor are now everywhere in our house! They both have mastered hand-eye coordination and will now reach for objects in front of them, which is so much fun! They still love to have conversations with each other and their noises are getting more and more interesting! It's so fun to listen to! Macy still loves the outdoors and loves to look out our front window at the leaves. Sadie's personality is getting even sweeter and she loves to give HUGE open mouth grins! I'm just loving seeing them grow and change!!

Here is Macy checking out the leaves, while Mommy updates the blog!

Here are my two cuties!

We're counting down the days until Daddy comes home!
