Seven Months Old!

The girls are SEVEN months old today! It's so hard for me to believe it! This time last year, I was 16 weeks pregnant and we had just learned that we would be having girls. How fast the year has gone and how much things have changed!

Both girls are getting up on all fours often now and Macy is scooting like crazy. It's time to start babyproofing things! They are expert sitters at this point and love to sit together and play with their toys. They laugh at each other, reach for one another and love to stick their hands out for Bogey to lick! Macy has started reaching for me when she wants to be picked up and I just love it!

We had lots of excitement today on their seven month birthday, as it is also their first snow! We've had flurries here and there, bit this is the first time they've seen snow on the ground! It wasn't much, but enough to get the tabogan out! We had a blast! Here they are, my seven month olds...

Aren't they adorable with their mittens?!?
Mommy, the girls and Bogey! We had a blast playing in the snow!

I may not be able to post again until after the holidays. We could not be more excited for the girls first Christmas and to introduce them to lots of friends and family that they haven't met yet! Can't wait to post pictures for you all to see! To everyone...HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Long time, no post!

Wow, I've been slacking in my blog posts recently. We've been so busy recently that I haven't had time to sit down and post! The girls are getting so big and are really changing quickly. They will be SEVEN MONTHS old this weekend...I cannot believe it! They are both rocking on all fours and Macy is scooting herself forward like a champ. I think that they both will be crawling in the next few weeks. Sadie is starting to babble in a way that sounds like she is actually talking and it is very cute. Brian and I are trying hard to get them both to say MaMa and DaDa, but no luck yet. It's become almost a competition to see which one they will say first! Sadie has now caught up with her sister and has two bottom teeth as well. The first one came in 8 days ago and the second one was soon to follow! Here is my big girl with teeth...

Recently, the girls have been falling asleep in their highchairs. They really aren't all that interested in their solid foods that Mommy so nicely makes for them! Avocado is still a huge hit, but everything else seems far from interesting...hence, sleeping girls during meal time.

I feel like the girls really don't need their Mommy all that much anymore! They are simply content to hang out on the floor playing together, "talking" to each other, and tossing around their toys. I simply help them sit back up when they topple over and help them reach toys that too far away. Now, I'm definitely not complaining, as this is a welcome change, but it definitely makes me realize that as they get older, I'm going to continue to become less and less of a necessity! Here are my independent girls this morning...

We have a busy few weeks ahead with Christmas, closing on the new house, moving into the new house and celebrating the New Year, but I hope to update the blog as often as possible and show you pictures of the girls' first Holiday season. For those of you who are waiting...I was a bit late in ordering our Christmas cards this year, but I promise they will be in the mail soon!!

Best Friends...

One of my favorite parts of having twins is knowing that my girls will always have a special bond. They will always have each other to lean on and share secrets. I'm so grateful that they can go through each and every milestone (especially the awkward teenage years) with one another. My hope for them is that they will forever be best friends. Today in the tub, I sat them up to play for a second and what Sadie did, melted my heart...

Now, best friends won't always hang out naked together, but for now, hanging out naked in the living room is pretty fun! :) Macy has a bit of a diaper rash and I thought it was only fair that if she got to play without her diaper, that Sadie did too... Aren't their behinds just adorable???
In addition to each other, I hope that the girls have many other close friends. Brian has been friends with his best friend since First Grade and Travis and his wife are still some of our closest friends. Their daughter, Norah, is 2 months younger than the girls and I truly hope that the 3 of them can grow up together and always be close friends. Here is a picture of the three of them, after Norah's baptism (Macy, Norah, Sadie)...
I tried on the girls' Christmas dresses tonight and they are adorable! Only 23 days left until their First Christmas!
