Just a few things!

Well I finally broke down and went to buy high chairs today!!! It was so much easier to feed them in their chair than trying to feed them propped up on a pillow of some sort lol!!!! I bought the ones that strap to the chair to save space considering we need two of them!!! We also tried PEAS today!!!! I think they seemed to like them....so far we have tried 2 vegetables and they have like both of them!!!! We might try squash next!!!! doesnt that just sound yummy!!!!

Anywho, here are a few pictures of them testing out their high chairs and eating yummy peas!!!


Here are the girls trying out their new chairs!!! Can you believe I got them both to smile at the same time!!! Man I remember when it was so hard to get them to even move their lip a little lol...now I get big grins and I love it!!!! So I think the girls are definitely not identical...I think they look different and I can really tell in these pictures how much different they look!



Addisyn Loves her new high chair!!!! She was a little short still as you can see..so I put a blanket in their when it was time to eat to sit her up a little more!!! She is still so short lol....but she is growing!



Audrey was so excited...she kept hitting her hands on the tray!!!!




Addisyn says Cheeeeesseee!!!!! Mommy I love the peas!!!!!


Audrey after she ate her peas!!!...She always shoves her hand in her mouth after I put the spoon in her mouth so she gets it all over the place haha!!! But whats the fun in eating if you cant smear it everywhere right? lol



Had to put a video of Audrey talking!!! Sometimes I swear she says mama...but pretty sure she doesnt really know what she is saying lol...just wishful thinking!!!!

Talking/Rolling Over/Baby Food!

So I thought I would post a few videos and pictures....I let the girls try a vegetable today and they really liked it! They got to eat sweet potatoes today!!! I was really surprised but I guess it is better than the rice cereal!!!!



Here is Audrey after she chowed down on the sweet potatoes! Kind of messy but that is all part of it!



Addisyn loved them too!!!! I think her face was a little bit messy than Audrey's

Audrey rolling over....sorry I was on the wrong side of her just had to grab the camera where I was sitting!!!She rolled over about 2 months about almost and I am just now posting it! She can almost roll from her back to her tummy!

I filmed this of Addisyn, she was just talking away....I was not in front of her because everytime she sees me with the camera she stops and just looks lol!!!!

Weekend with the Smith's

Kyle and Jenn came all the way from Louisiana to visit us and meet the girls for the first time!!! It had been since Christmas since we had seen them and we had a great time as always!!!! We spent Friday night having a few drinks and playing the wii...they had never played before so they had a really great time doing that...Then on Saturday, we rested all day, played the wii, and then had a bbq Saturday evening with some other friends!!!! We had a good time....it rained all around us but not at our house so it was perfect, then after everyone left it down poured...good timing huh? Sunday we thought we would go out to the lake and have a little picnic and fish...well we got about an hour in enough to eat then tried a new spot....it started raining so of course the guys kept fishing and Jenn and I were stuck in the car with the babies!!! but it was ok because we watched a movie and just hung out!!! Then they left today!!! It was a nice long weekend and we really enjoyed our visit with them!!! Thanks for coming guys...we will come your way next time!!!!



Dave and Kyle at our bbq!!!! good times, great friends!

Weekend Recap

We had a great weekend! Friday Dave's shop rewarded them for doing such an awesome job that they didnt even have to work..Guess what they did instead? They ate pizza and played softball!!! I guess that is much better than working but just to let you know, it was also a very hot one that day too....105 degrees!!! Man we enjoyed our time out there. The girls and I hung out in the shade and talk to some other wives. Little did I know that you can get so sun burned in the shade. I thought that I was good to go because I wasnt in the shade at all, but when I got home that evening I looked in the mirror and wow...burnt!!!! Its going to be a good start to my tanning for the summer!!! I think its going to be a hot summer. So I didnt take any pictures while we were out at the fields...I just forgot to even get the camera out...and I took it with me to the softball fields too. Oh well!

Dave and Audrey! Her and Addisyn love to stand now!!!






Saturday we had about 15 people over to our house to fry some chicken wings and eat some yummy dips that I had prepared earlier that day. It was a lot of fun and I hope to have more of those often because yes, I still need some adult time and conversations from time to time!!! It was a late night so I was tired all day Sunday.







Me and Audrey!!!! Dont mind the no make-up and hair really not fixed lol




Me and Addisyn!!!



Well Audrey is now sleeping through the night from about 730-730 the next morning. So Addisyn woke up at 5 to eat when I didnt even go to bed until about 2 in the morning...I was dragging...So when I got up to feed the girls around 8 I happened to look at my phone and I had a text message from my sister telling me Happy Mother's Day...Thats how tired I was, I forgot it was even mother's day until I read that and it was my very first one too!!!! Even though I was so tired I actually had a nice relaxing day!!! I am also thankful to have a great mom who has taught me so much and I think that is why I am the mom and am today!!! So thank you Mom, I love you!! I spent most of my day laying on the couch and watching tv!!! Its so nice!!! Dave helped out with the babies more so that I could relax of course I still did what I usually do with them..They are the reason why I look forward to the next day when I go to sleep. My girls are truely a blessing and I love them very much. The girls and Dave got me a spa package to get a one hour massage, a facial and a delux pedicure!!! I will probably be going sometime this week!!! THank you Dave..I love you! So all and all I had a nice first mother's day to relax!!! Oh and Addisyn slept through the night last night so I got to sleep about 12 hours because I went to bed early early last night!!! It was so nice!!! I love sleeping!!!! Anyways I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!!!!

Cereal

So when we went to the dr monday, he said that we could start trying rice cereal with the girls and if they do well for a couple of weeks then to start on vegetables. Well I have been trying for the past 2 days and yesterday they weren't really having it...today was a little bit better. They take it...just only a couple spoons of it. Any suggestions on what I should do...should I wait another week or keep trying a little bit at a time like have been doing everyday? Here are a few pictures.


Audrey says here let me try it.


Addisyn thought she should smile at me while I was feeding her lol!


Audrey too!!! I was trying to give her the cereal and this is what she did instead lol


Addisyn is thinking I dont know about this mom!


Audrey doesnt know what to think of it she spit that one back out lol!!!

4 Month Check-Up

Today, Dave and I took the girls to the dr for their 4 month check-up. Everything went very well besides the long wait...not sure why you make appoitments because you never get in there on time....and then it was their shots!!! poor babies..never heard either one of them cry so hard. I felt so bad and it seemed the nurse wasnt doing it quick enough haha! Well dr said we can start giving them cereal once a day out of a bowl..So I am going to start that tomorrow!!! He said to see how that goes and if they do well with it for a couple of weeks that we can start trying out some vegetables!!! Anyways that is that!!!!

4 Month Stats
Addisyn:
Weight-10 pounds 5 ounces
Height- 21 1/2 inches long
5th percentile

If I remember right....this is how big Audrey was at the 2 month check up exactly!!! They are gaining the same amount of weight and growing in length the same..we just have to remember Addisyn was only 2 pounds when she was born so she is still about 3 pounds different. But she is growing and very healthy and that is the important thing!!!

Audrey:
Weight-14 pounds 2 ounces
Height-23 3/4 inches long
50th Percentile

Audrey is just on a roll!!! Dr said " man she is just climbing up her curve isnt she!!! The curve is their chart they look at for what percentile they are in!!!! She is one healthy baby!!!!

Anyways just thought I would post how the girls are doing!!! Here a few picture from before we left for the dr appt.!!



Dave and his baby girls!!! Audrey and Addisyn!!...he is wrapped around their little fingers!


Me and my precious baby girls!!

4 Months Old Already?

Man, the girls are 4 months old already? Where has the time gone...we are almost half way through the year....Time flies when you are having fun and that is no joke that your kids will grow up so fast!!!! I just cant believe it!!! They are getting so big and are changing everyday! They are even starting to sleep a little longer every night which is awesome!!!! Lets see....Audrey and Addisyn are sleeping for 7-8 hours at night...They go to bed around 8 so they are still waking up around 3 am still for a feeding but thats ok! They both roll over from their tummy to their back! They both lift themselves up while laying on their tummies and look around at toys, tv, etc....for long periods of time!! They are smiling and cooing a lot! So I would say they have changed a lot in the last 2 months since their last dr visit..they go tomorrow for a check-up and shots..man I hate to see them get shots...so I will know their height and weight tomorrow!! Anyways I just thought I would update on the girlies!!! More to come tomorrow....Here are a couple pictures.



Addisyn lifting herself up to look around....I was trying to get both of them but didnt work out!

Here is Audrey..I got her to smile a little bit!
