Happy Babies

Wouldn't you be happy if you woke up to seeing this every morning:

My little ones are the happiest babies in the morning. I walk in the room and their faces just light up and I am instantly ready to start the morning. I am so blessed to be their mother. If everyone had these smiles waiting for them to start the day, the world would be a different happier place.

Highchair fun

Lately we have been changing our eating habits here. We are trying to move from four bottles to three and eat more solid baby food and then eat more finger foods. It is very exciting! Also i have found very exhausting. Making bottles, feeding jar food and making something for finger fun and practice. It seams like we are spending most of the day eating. Its a bit of a transition but Ethan and Bridget are loving it. Most of the time they look like I am giving them poison when we try new finger foods, but soon after they cant get enough. It is really fun to be able to watch them figure out there hands and how to chew. These we an example of nectarines, and they are the biggest hit so far!!!

Fun In My Crib

Last week Ethan discovered the joys of playing in is bed. It seemed like every time I wen tin to get him he was in a new position, or he was playing peek a boo with the bumper with Bridget, or learning to toss his Binky to the other side of the room. But two instances were the best. After nap time I go to get Ethan and this is the picture that I see:

A very smiley face boy with a completely dismantled mobile. He managed to pull himself up with the crib bumper and them grab one of the dinosaurs and then somehow snapped the bar holding it up high and then unhooked the main part and pull it down to him. Hmmm, not sure how it all worked but he did it and was very proud of himself, and the mobile was beyond repair.
Later that week I come it to see this:

As you can see, again a very happy boy, very proud of himself. He managed to sit up on his own! He had been practicing this trick for a while now in Physical therapy and has been soo close for so long and finally success! A few more day of practice and he is now a master sitter.

All in a good weeks work. Hey if they are not sleeping at least they are keeping themselves entertained.

10 months

Its has gone so fast but my babies are getting older every second. I can't believe that they are ten months already! We didn't make it to the Dr. for their 9 month appointment until 9 1/2 months so this is a 9month and 10month post combined. It is amazing how much they have learned in such a short time. They both are now moving all over he house with their combat crawl. Bridget is sitting up all on her own, and Ethan can now get into sitting from laying all by himself! I love to watch how persistent they are. When they cant do something they try and try again until they finally get it right. It is really inspiring to see. As stats go, as of 7/15 Bridget is 25.75 inches and 15.6 lbs! A recent trip to the Dr. had her weighing at 16.2 lbs. Ethan is 27 inches and 17.4 lbs! And a recent weigh for him was 18lbs. They are just climbing up the charts.
