Snowball Fight

Auntie Kendra and I had too much fun playing on the computer tonight. We found a very fun website and made a movie of Madeline and Emma playing with their cousins Caroline, Nicholas and Molly. Enjoy! (click on the link below)

No more binkies


Emma has found her thumb too! It is so nice to have two babies that can self soothe. No more running into the nursery to replace a binkie.

First video

video My new cell phone has a video camera so I thought I would try it out. One of these days Chad and I will get around to buying a real one.

Bath Time

The girls love their bath time. Never a tear, always a smile.

I love this picture of Emma. It captures her playful smile perfectly.

The Perfect December 1st

The perfect way to start the month of December, Christmas tree hunting and snow. Can't get better than that.

We decided today was the day to go get our frst real Christmas tree. We packed up the girls, Papi and Auntie Kendra and started driving North. We weren't sure where we were going we just knew we wanted to cut it down ourselves. We ended up finding a great little tree farm in Standwood, WA about an hour North of Seattle.



On the hunt for the perfect tree.

Mommy and Emma watching daddy cut down the tree.








The tree was perfect, we found a lucky bird's nest hidden inside. Here is Emma with the lucky nest on her head.







As we got closer and closer to home the snow started falling harder and harder. Here is our house in the first snow.








Still snowing!


Almost done.

Thumbs Up

Miss Madeline found her thumb! At first I thought it was just by chance but she has been sticking it in her mouth and sucking on it all morning. Even when I put her down for her nap the thumb went straight in her mouth. She never has been a big fan of the binky. I know it's cute now, let's just hope the habit isn't around when she hits kindegarten.


A moment of peace. All three babies happy and content on the floor. Madi on the mat, Emma in the swing, and Papi snoozing along side his sisters.

Play Time


The girls are still a little small, but they are getting strong enough to play in the exersaucer for a little while. They LOVE it!



Thanksgiving

I am really bad at keeping this up to date.
For Thanksgiving this year Chad and I took the girls to spend the holiday with Chad's family and friends in Duxbury, Mass. We had a wonderful time catching up with Grandma BB, Great Grammy, Uncle Jake, Grandpa Rick, Grandma Jeffie and the rest of the family. The girls loved meeting all their new friends too.

We had a wonderful visit with Great Gram.


Madeline and Emma already have a group of wonderful friends. (from left to right) Reed Garrett, Madeline, Lucy Frazier, Emma, and Ryan Laramee

Uncle Jake is so good with the girls. They love playing with him.
On Friday, we went to Westport to see Grandpa Rick and Grandma Jeffie. We had a wonderful dinner and were able to spend time with Rick's side of the family.
Chad's cousin Ted has two beautiful little girls Meredith and Amanda. They were so good with Madeline and Emma, I think we found our perfect little babysitters.

Three Months Old

I can't believe the girls are already three months old. I have no idea where the time has gone. My guess is that they are somewhere around 10lbs now. They are getting bigger and bigger everyday. They have grown out of all of their Newborn size clothes. They have been smiling like crazy for the last 2-3 weeks. Emma smiles with her eyes and has the flirting thing down. They are starting to roll over. Madi rolled over once on Sept. 11th but hasn't done it again until today. She went both directions, tummy to back and back to tummy. Emma went tummy to back this morning. I really need to be better about giving them tummy time.
They love story time with daddy.

Palm Springs

At the last minute Auntie Kiersten invited us to join her, Caroline, Nicholas and Molly in Palm Springs for the week. Kendra and I packed up the girls on Monday and flew down to the desert. The girls did great and enjoyed their time in the sun. We also got to spend some time with our cousins Brent and Landon and Aunt Margi. We had a wonderful time and it was hard to come back to the rain Friday night.





Grandpa Rick and Grandma Jeffie

The girls met their Grandpa Rick and Grandma Jeffie. They came to visit for an extended weekend and we loved having them around. It is really hard to be so far away.

Photo Shoot

Yesterday we had Leo come over and take pictures of the girls.


He caught Emma with her tongue out.









Madeline is SO BIG



Emma so calm and peaceful. If only she was like that at 2 am.












Grandma BB was visiting from Duxbury. It is hard to be so far away from the other half of our family.

Finally Together



We are able to finally let the girls share a crib and get to know each other.




We won't be able to hold both of them at once for long.



Feeding two newborns at the same time is a little tricky.










Papi is very good with the girls. He likes to sneak in kisses whenever he can.
