Im not sure when babies start crawling, I know its around their age sometime...but the girls are about to be 6 months old on Friday and they kind of look like they want to try and start crawling...Uh oh lol...look out!!!! I am going to have one baby going one way and the other the other way lol!!!! But how fun will it be when they get to move around and not have to lay in one spot haha..they are already becoming rollie pollies all over the living room floor! Anyways just wanted to share!! Here are a couple of pictures!


Uh oh..looks like Audrey wants to go somewhere..look at her leg! She is trying to figure it out!


Addisyn wants to be on the move too!!!

A Litte Visit

My sister, Jennifer and nieces Madi and Haylee came for a little visit with the Midyett's! They arrived on Monday afternoon and left this morning around 8! We didnt do much but it was nice to visit with them and hang out together with all of our babies! Yesterday Dave, me, addisyn and audrey and Jennifer and Haylee and madi all loaded up and we went to Chuckie Cheese for pizza and games!! Haylee loves to play all of the games and we enjoyed playing with her!!! Oh and the pizza was very delicious lol!!! After that we came home to put the kids down for a nap and mommy fell asleep too...still not caught up on sleep from the weekend! We fed the girls and decided to head to walmart!! Addisyn was tired so I had to carry her and push a basket full of stuff through walmart lol!!! No fun..I wanted to get the girls some new toys to play with other than the rattles we have and Jennifer wanted to get some snacks for Haylee and herself for the long drive they had today so they wouldnt have to stop!! It was great visiting with yall and I am glad yall could make it up here even though we didnt do much!!! I didnt even get many pictures and jennifer and I didnt get any together lol!!! Oh well..maybe next time!

Annual River Trip!

I am a little behind but thats ok...better late than never lol!!! Last Wednesday my mom and dad (grandma and grandpa) came up to Abilene to visit with Dave and I and the girls! They were coming up here to baby sit so that Dave and I could get a little getaway for our annual river trip to the Guadelupe River! Words dont say enough to let them know how much we appreciate them coming up here to watch Addisyn and Audrey so that we can go have a little fun camping and floating down a river! I did miss the girls. I was our first time away....it was actually kind of weird not to have kids with you and have to feed and wake up in the middle of the night!! I missed them a lot but it was nice to get a way!!! So thank you mom and dad for coming here and spending the weekend with the girls and making our trip happen!!! We love you very much!

We left on Friday and drove to New Braunfel's but stopped in Fredricksberg sp? for a couple hours. Dave and his friends wanted to stop at a winery and a brewery to check out because they are trying to do their own at home! That is a very neat little town but we werent there for that long so we might have to take a day trip there and check out all of the neat little stores they have!!!
After that we continued to the river! We finally arrived around 3 or 4 in the afternoon..man that 4 hour trip turned into like 6 or 7 lol....but thats ok!!! WE got there, set up our tents and hung out and had a bbq!! It was nice! Saturday was the big day! It took us about 5 hours to float the river...I dont even think we floated a mile but since the river was so low it took that long!!! BUt I like it too cause the water feels great...your kicking back on a tube with a drink...and getting sun and having fun times with great friends! I think in one spot of the river right before getting out we floated there for about an hour in the same spot haha!!! The river kept going backwards-forward-backwards lol!!! It was a lot of fun!!!! Good times!!
Anyways we had a great weekend with friends and it was all thanks to my mom and dad for watching the girls so that we could go!!! Thank you again we had an awesome time!!! Here are a couple of pictures! They are out of order...sorry:)

A little of everything!

Its been a little while...I didnt really have any new pictures to post so that is why I havent done a blog in a little while...whats a blog without pictures!? anyways The girls are really starting to be little rollie pollies!!! Addisyn will just roll from her back to stomach, from stomach to back!!! She is just growing so much and it just amazes me how far she has come...I measured her today and she is 24 inches long!!! She was 21 1/2 inches at 4 months and we are now at 5 1/2 so she has grown alot!Not too much further than Audrey!!! Audrey is now about 26 inches long!!! I cant believe how big they are getting!!!! So she started using this high pitch sound for her talking right now!!! I guess she can hear herself and likes it so it gets louder and louder lol!!! I love it!!!! She is starting to eat everything in sight right now!!! and she is really starting to grab toys that are out of her reach so she will try and get it and roll over and look!!!! I have a toy in my hand!!! lol!!! They change everyday and I am so blessed to have them in my life. They are my little miracle babies!!! We love them so much!!! Here are some pictures!

I think we have a thumb sucker in our house!!! Addisyn always sucks her thumb when she is tired and ready to go to sleep! Hopefully she will grow out of it and this is just a small phase in her life!!!!


Audrey was looking at this book..."I want to eat you" haha!


Sisters!!!! Pretty girls..Audrey on the left and Addisyn on the right!


You have to love how a baby sleeps! I went to check in on the girls while they were taking a nap and this is how they were sleeping!!!!

Addisyn loves to sleep on her side!!


Audrey...sure does not look comfortable...she has not mastered rolling from her back to her tummy just yet so sometimes she gets stuck haha! so cute!!! but she did roll over today when she was reaching for a toy!!!


I finally caught it on tape!!! Addisyn rolling over from her back to her tummy!!! She has rolled over both ways for a while I just could never get it on video....so here it is!
video

Audrey tried to reach for some toys and roll over but that didnt happen, as soon as I stopped the video she rolled over lol!!! here is her new high pitch talk lol!

A few pictures

Daddy and Audrey still sleeping before we left for our trip to Corpus!!! I was trying to take a shower and get everything ready while everyone slept lol...Addisyn was still asleep in her crip and Audrey woke up so I took her out of her crib and layed her down with her daddy and she fell back asleep!




Audrey is so happy and refreshed after her nap!



Addisyn just hanging around talking after her nap!!

A quick trip!

So this weekend we decided to make a quick trip down to Corpus Christi, TX. Dave's brother, Ronald borrowed our trailor last September to go huting and we wanted it back so Dave can haul his motorcycle when we go ou of town, and we are also going to use it next weekend the 19th to go to New Braunfels to float down the Guadelupe River! Im so excited about that trip!!! We did it last year and had so much fun so we thought we would do it again this year with the same group of people!!!! I cannot wait!!! But I will be sad at the same time because it will be the first time for Dave and I to be away from our sweet baby girls!!! I know it will be fine and nice to get away for a couple of days and we will miss them very much, but I know they will be in good hands!!! My mom is coming up to watch them so Dave and I can have us time with some friends!!! Thanks mom for making that trip up here to give us a nice weekend!!!

We had a good time in Corpus even though it was a very short visit this time!!! While we were there we visited...had some good food...and made a trip to the beach!!! We werent out there very long but everyone got sunburned but Dave' mom...lol....she loaded the sunscreen on!!!! she was smart! I guess that is part of not putting on sunscreen...oops! The girls loved the water..but Addisyn did not like it after Dave took her out!!! she was cold and tired and not very happy!!! So Dave's dad sat with her!!! I sat with Audrey in the water....she loved it!!!

Anyways, we had a good couple of days and hopefully next time we can visit longer!!! This trip was just to get our trailor!!!! and let me tell you, we do not get good gas mileage pulling a trailor with our big old suburban lol....I think we got 14.5 mpg....not very good and without a trailor we get about 20...its a big difference!!! oh well!!!! So here are some pictures from the weekend!



Here is grandpa with Addisyn! trying to stay warm and in the shade!!!

5 Months Old

so the girls are 5 months old today! Can you believe that? It has gone by way too fast and we are almost half way through the year already!!! so I weighed and measured the girls myself so its probably not as accurate as you would get at the dr....give or take!!!

Addisyn Stats from home:
Weight- 12 pounds -/+
Height- 22 1/2 inches long

Look at that face!!! she loved the squash!!




* Addisyn is sleeping from 730-about 630/7 in the morning
* takes 5 ounces of formula almost every feeding sometimes just 4 ounces
* rolls over both ways....we have yet to see her do it but we know she does when you lay her on her back walk away for a minute and she is on her tummy when you come back lol
* grasps toys...starting to put to her mouth!
* smiles like crazy and I have even heard a little chuckle in there!
* talks all of the time..I wouldnt say it is cooing lol....sounds more like just noises lol...I think they might start saying....mamama..dadada...babababa soon because every once in a while I hear mamama...or maybe I dont lol and want to hear it but I can!!!
* She loves to stand in your lap....and when you sit her on your knees...she just talks away!
* We are eating baby foods!!! So far we dont like the cereal lol...I put some juice in it and they seem to do a little better....We have tried sweet potatoes/like it...peas/like it....squash/like it....and green beans/dont like it but I will eat it anyway lol! We will try carrots tomorrow and then this weekend we will start on fruits!!! Yaaayyy!!! They will most likely enjoy those!!!

Audrey's stats from home:
Weight: 16 pounds WOW!!!! -/+
Height: 24 1/2 inches long!

Have to love a messy baby face!!!!




* Audrey is sleeping from 730-about 630/7 in the morning but wakes up around 2 for some reason....not really hungry..just wants to be rocked back to sleep cause she wakes herself over but flipping..
* takes 5 ounces of formula almost every feeding
* rolls over from tummy to back....she is very close to rolling over from her back to her tummy....gets over to her side but doesnt have the umph to go all the way!
* grasps toys...starting to put to her mouth!
* drooling like crazy!!! I think we are teething
* smiles like crazy and laughs!!! I love it....it makes me laugh to as you probably saw in the video of the blog before!
* talks all of the time..I wouldnt say it is cooing lol....sounds more like just noises lol...I think they might start saying....mamama..dadada...babababa soon because every once in a while I hear mamama...or maybe I dont lol and want to hear it but I can!!!
