Ten Months and Growing!

My sweet little monkeys are getting so big! Aidan is standing on his own on a regular basis. Brooklyn is still clinging to the couches or mommy's hands. She has mastered the art of crumbling when she realizes that she's no longer being supported--got to love the jelly legs! They both have truly found their voices and love yelling at each other and also using 'mama' and 'dada' to get our attention. They are working the table foods like champs and act insulted when we try to spoon baby food into their mouths.

I have truly enjoyed watching their personalities really grow. they are no doubt the same sweet souls from birth, their personalities have just magnified to much more recognizable levels.
Brooklyn is a daddy's girl, through and through. She has him wrapped around her little finger! I can see his heart melt every time she grins. Even when she is sleeping, she smiles when she hears Daddy's voice.
Aidan is a mama's boy in the best and worst ways! I adore the way he looks at me like I am truly the best thing since ice cream. But as soon as I venture even around the corner into a different room, the wails are definitely on the dramatic side. He is a strong willed little dude. We definitely have to keep our eye on him because he can pull a houdini act and disappear in a matter of seconds!

We are getting so excited to celebrate their first Christmas!
Kaleb is truly a big helper. He loves how much they look up to him and he most certainly keeps him entertained. I love watching their faces light up when Kaleb wants to play and dance with the babies. It is so sweet to see!

We have had a very good time recently with a small trip to Albuquerque and a trip to the Children's museum there. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from that trip and a few more recent photos. Enjoy!

It has been established. I suck at updating this thing. Truly. No excuses.

On the positive side, you'll get to see the wee ones grow in fast motion here. They are now almost eight months old. Busy little bumblebees. Brooklyn and Aidan are both attempting to crawl, they have the army crawl and roll away down pat. They hold their own bottles, they arch their backs like super gymnasts to try to maneuver their way out of any place they don't want to be. They are still obsessed with their feet and are frequently found sucking on their own toes, or their siblings...
Brooklyn finally got her ears pierced so that hopefully she'll stop getting called a boy.
Aidan is still as bald as a cue ball.
No teeth have erupted yet, but they're hiding just below the surface creating all sorts of crankiness.
Brooklyn made her daddy's lifetime by saying "Dada" first. I'm still rooting that Aidan might pull through for me and give me a well deserved "Mama" but I'm not going to hold my breath on that one! Here are some of my favorite more recent pictures of the munchkins!

Two Months Old!

The twins are doing wonderfully! A little more sleep at night would do wonders for me, but I truly can't complain because they are very good natured babies so apparently they are getting plenty of rest. Aidan apparently has set a goal for himself to catch up with other babies his age who aren't preemies because the kid eats nonstop! Brooklyn is a little more dainty in her diet but a lot more vocal when she's upset. Kaleb is struggling with knowing how much help is TOO much. (ie: carrying your brother across the room is NOT on the approved activities list, nor is hiding him under a blanket to try to disguise the fact that you did relocate him without approval or assistance.)
On the whole though we are quite the happy little family, I have almost forgotten what it was like to only have one child. Sure it takes a good mental psych up session to go out the door with all three munchkins, and significantly longer to get them all prepared for any baby surprises that may happen if I am unprepared. At this point I am just so happy that we all still like each other!

Awake & Alert


I love that my munchkins are waking up much longer, they are beginning to grin intentionally but still have that teeny pathetic newborn cry--this is the perfect recipe for melting a mama's heart!
