As I had said, the girls prefer to feed themselves right now...here are a few pictures of how this works out....
Aunt Sarah came to town last weekend from Boston. We took the opportunity to celebrate Brian and Aubrey's birthdays a month early. We had our traditional birthday dinner at Japanese steakhouse, which was a blast. The girls got so much attention from the waitresses and hostess, that I'm surprised anyone in the packed restaurant got their food orders and drinks! Macy was a little nervous about the fire on the table, as our food was being cooked, but the girls did wonderfully and as usual, loved being out.
One thing that we love about our new house is that we can have lots of people over, so we spent the weekend having family gatherings at our house each day during Sarah's visit. We had family game night, ate carrot cake cupcakes (the Grandma made especially for the girls with organic carrots) and hung out. It was a lot of fun!

Just a quick picture of Macy, because I love how it shows her two adorable bottom teeth (she has two top ones too!)
Good friends = Good times! This weekend, we had yet another packed few days! My friend Jess came in from CT on Thursday and we were so excited to have her here! I always tell Brian how lucky he is to have old friends and his family near by, so I was thrilled to have my own old friend to hang out with for a few days! It was great to reminisce, relax and enjoy the girls with Jess! While she was in town, Travis and Sarah stopped by with Eleanor and Wesley to play! Here is Travis, staring down Sadie...
To top off our fabulous weekend, the weather was beautiful! It was wonderful to see sunshine, melting snow and warm temperatures. We went on a fun family walk and had a blast!
The girls are ready to go!
One of the many things that we love about our new neighborhood is the amenities. In less then a five minute walk, we have tennis courts, playgrounds, basketball courts, volleyball courts, and a terrific pool and baby pool, just for our neighborhood! We tried out the playground for the first time on our walk and loved it. I know that we will be spending lots of time here this summer and I can't wait!

Macy loved being pushed in the swing! My adventurous child!
I think that I've been saying this every month recently, but I truly LOVE this age. The girls continue to get more and more fun and I'm finally getting to the point where I can say, it's moving way too fast! The first few months I spent wishing away the days, waiting for things to get easier. Once we hit 5-6 months, things started to fly by and now, they are just going too fast! The girls are just a blast right now. They discover new things every day and they love learning and seeing new things. They love to hug, kiss and cuddle and playtime is their favorite thing! I wish I could freeze time...
Girls night next weekend with my mom's of twins (and triplets) friends...I can't wait!!!
