Visit with BB

Grandma BB came out for a visit this weekend. It is always fun to see her and we wish we could spend more time with her. The girls love her and had lots of new tricks to show her, crawling, sitting up, talking, teeth, etc....

Before BB left I made her read the girls a bedtime story and put them to bed one last time before she left. It's hard to say goodbye.

Emma loves to listen
Madi tried to eat the book.

Easter

Ooops, I was so excited about Madeline crawling, I forgot about posting pictures from the girls' first Easter. The Easter bunny met us at Nana and Papa's with Easter baskets. We had a huge brunch with the whole family and all the cousins. The only person missing was Uncle Ryan. He was stuck in Hawaii. All the girls had matching dresses so we had to try and capture a picture. It is an impossible task to get all five to smile at the same time. If you look closely you can see Kiersten and I in the mirror trying to get everyone to look and smile at the same time.

Motorin'

While I spent 4 days in Las Vegas with my childhood friends Erin, Sommer and Shannon, Madeline decided it was time to make the move. She started officially crawling. She went from two little shuffles to across the room just like that. Nana and Papa were lucky enough to be the eye witnesses to this major milestone.

Emma isn't too far behind. She gets up on her knees and rocks back and forth. Hopefully she will decide to make the move when both daddy and I are watching.

Our Baby Blossoms are 8 Months Old


At 8 months..
Madi is working really hard on crawling, she get on her knees and can move them both forward one step then goes down. She sits up very well on her own and is trying to figure out solids still. She like apples really watery. She sucks in her bottom lip and refuses to smile for the camera. She can entertain herself for hours, has incredible focus and gets frustrated when she can't figure something out.
Emma is practicing balancing on all fours, she is great at going backwards. She also can sit up on her own very well. She devours solids like they are the last food on earth. She loves everything. She laughs and smiles at everyone especially her sister. She loves to be entertained by her daddy and could spend all day in mommy's arms. She is very talkative and babbles on and on.
They are both great sleepers, sleeping 12 hours at night and taking 3 naps a day. Always happy and easy going. We are truly blessed!

Tomorrow Could Be The Day...

That we have our first crawler. Madi has figured out how to move her legs forward, one step at a time.

The girls also got to take their first bath together tonight. Madi laughed the whole time. Nicholas jumped in with them. It was quite the party.



And of course Papi had to be part of the action too.

Happy St. Patty's Day



I am sure the girls have some Irish in there somewhere.

Playing with twins can wear a person out. Nicholas is staying with us for two nights while Kiersten is in Las Vegas. He rarely takes naps. He slept for an hour upstairs then woke up, came down stairs and fell asleep again. It has now been a total of 3 hours. Hope he sleeps tonight. Papi is apparently tired too. He and Nicholas have a lot of fun together.


Aren't they getting so big?!

Thumper

Emma has a new nickname...

video

Anytime, SE is on her back she thumps her legs, sometimes one leg sometimes both. She does it when she's eating, when she is getting her diaper changed, and when she is playing with a toy. If Madi isn't careful, Emma thumps her too.
