Diaper time


When we change the girls diapers, we put the clean one on their heads like little wigs. They love it! They also play peek-a-boo with them. Wes says we are going to regret it when they try and put a dirty one on.

Going for a walk

We took the girls for a walk this evening. It was a great day for it the weather was cool. We took the "tank" as Wes calls it and Molly the dog. We were a site. Molly always has to lead and zig zag but with the stroller she kept getting run over. The girls laughed the whole time because they thought that everything Molly does is funny.

15 Months!

Today the girls turned 15 months old! It's hard to believe. This time last year they were tiny and we had to watch them while they ate. Now, they shovel food in their mouths as fast as they can.

They visited Dr. Jim today for their 15 month check up. Both girls are doing good and the biggest news is that they are on the charts in the positive numbers. It's a little stressful when the doctor told us they were in the negative percentiles.

The only problem is that Lizzie is a little under the weather. She's been running a low grade fever since yesterday and snotty. In fact, Wes went in at 10 and she was at 102. We decided it was time to go to Acute Kids just to be safe. So, he is taking Lizzie while I'm at home with Gracie. Hopefully Lizzie will feel better tomorrow. Poor baby.

Labor Day!

We had a great holiday weekend. Last year for Labor Day, we were still in lock down with the girls so we stayed at home and did nothing. I started back to work on the next Tuesday from maternity leave. This year was different. We traveled to Oklahoma and spent the weekend having fun.

While we were there, my sister gave up some more of her kids toys and the girls loved them! She brought them a toy piano and a ride on toy. Lizzie loved the piano and Gracie loved the ride on toy. Below is a picture of both girls on the toy.

The girls are trying to walk and talk more and more. They both are taking steps toward us without holding on to stuff. Also, they are saying more words. We can say ball, mama, dada, I love you, Molly (dog's name), Allie, Leo, (cats' name), cat, dog, and milk.

We had two other firsts. We took the girls to Chuck E Cheese for the first time and let them ride a couple of toys. Gracie loved it. Lizzie cried a little. We also finally stopped at the Texas rest stop and got a picture of the girls with the sign.
