Visits with Auntie

Christina and Kevin came to visit and see the girls off to their first costume party. We had a great time catching up, playing with babies, and just having a good time. It was nice to spend some quality time with those two as life right now doesn’t always allow for those moments. Thanks for

6 Months

This milestone came and went in the middle of October, but we did make note of it. Actually, we were on the girls first flight, so that’s a memory in itself. They have been very active this month. They have grown quite a bit. They are constantly moving and wanting to be in their jumpers

Meeting the new cousin/nephew

Last days of Summer walks

we took a walk with the girls in late September. Thankfully the weather has been amazing (we haven’t even turned the heat on in the house yet). Nashville, of course, was thrilled to be outside enjoying the fresh air and cool river water. The pictures are from the dykes that connect to the trail behind

Rocky Sitting

The girls are getting more stable while sitting. They still can’t sit unassisted and require the boppy as a basic support, but they are getting much better. Every day they are growing and getting much stronger. They no longer want to play while lying down, they want to be sitting or bouncing in their jumpers.

No More Peas!

We started solids a couple of weeks ago. We started the girls on some rice cereal and they progressed well with that. Addison was a pro from the beginning and Drew took a couple of turns to get the hang of it. Addison has since regressed with her eating skills (she now slurps off the
