Crawling and first tooth

Over the past 2 weeks both girls are showing signs of crawling. First it was Lizzie and her technique is the inch worm. She sticks her butt in the air and then pulls her feet behind her. Gracie does the army crawl.

Then a couple of nights ago, I was feeling in Lizzie's mouth and she has a little bitty tooth coming in! I can't believe the girls are getting so big.

In other news, Lizzie went to the ENT on Wednesday and she is scheduled to have tubes put in on March 13th. I'm nervous about it but I know that lots of kids have had them and it's ok.

Whenever we go out with the girls, we always get stopped. We get questions like "do you have twins?" or "is it a boy and a girl?". Anyway, yesterday I had to take Grace to the pedi because she wasn't feeling well. I noticed a man sitting in a restaurant and he held up two fingers and I nodded yes and walked on.

When I come out of the pedi office, the same man comes running up to me and in broken english starts to talk to me. He asked about the twins and then asks me about the octuplet mom. For some reason everyone thinks you are an expert on all multiples because you have twins. So he asks me, "you hear about octo mom" and then he keeps saying "she crazy, she has 8" holding up fingers to let me know how many. I just keeping nodding and smiling and try to get the girls in the car as fast as possible and leave.

I decided since I was off work early and needed to get my grandma a gift I would go to the mall. I get the girls out of the car and pull out the huge double stroller I have dubbed the monster. I bang around JC Pennys and can't find anything. I decide to venture farther in the mall. As I walk, I get stopped by a man working a kiosk. He has to tell me his twin story and asks if I had them natural too. Like it is any of his business. I politely talk to him for a minute and then leave. I finally get to grandma's favorite store and draw a crowd there asking all kinds of questions. The comment we hear the most often is "one's asleep and one's awake".

Now, I know how celebrities feel. :)

Happy Valentine's Day and trip to the Zoo

Here are the girls in their Valentine's t-shirts. I went crazy at the dollar bin at Target. Poor Lizzie has an ear infection and hasn't been feeling well. We go in a couple of weeks to the ENT to find out what we are going to do. This is her third since December.

On Saturday, we decided to go to the zoo. We asked some friends of ours to go with us. We had a great time. It was 4 girls two years old and under. Three of them were infants! It took us an hour and a half to eat lunch and feed all the girls! It was great day, not too hot and not too sunny. February is a great time to visit the zoo.

Messy Face Lizzie

I posted a messy face picture of Gracie. To be fair, I wanted to post a messy faced picture of Lizzie. They both love to eat and Dr. Jim said that we can now feed them food! We bought green beans yesterday and we will see how it goes. Wes still wants to try and make baby food. I'm not sure if we are up for that but we can try!

Holding Hands

The girls are always holding hands, so I decide to get a picture of it...... We are home sick today. Lizzie isn't feeling well and has a low grade fever. We went to the doctor yesterday and it isn't the flu or upper respiratory. Wes has been sick the last few days with an upper respiratory infection. Tomorrow, he gets to spend the day with the girls at home. We have had a good day. We have played and slept. Right now, Lizzie is a little cranky but good. They are fun little girls!

The girls attended their first Superbowl party last night. Gracie loved watching football with everyone. She spent a some time with Amanda while she explained the game. Gracie seemed to understand every word! Lizzie spent the evening loving on anyone who would hold her! Both girls really enjoyed themselves and didn't fuss hardly at all.

They are really good babies and slept pretty good last night!
