9 months

Where has the time gone?

It is hard to believe that M is 9 months old!
She is getting so big and here are a few things
that help us remember how:
1. She finally has 2 teeth (bottom front)
2. She crawls FAST to you when she is excited about seeing you
3. If you ask her for kisses, she leans her open mouth to your face
4. She got her a new big girl car seat...
5. She could walk if she really wanted to
6. She can stand up well enough that she can clap while she does
7. She has realized that if we laugh at something she does,
she will do it again to get us to laugh more
8. She likes french fries to eat when we go out
9. She is starting with the stranger anxiety
So much for such a short time. We can hardly believe we are just a
few months away from ONE! Time sure flies...
We love you M!

Christmas 2007

Oh what fun!
B, the girls and I have had a blast opening presents
and spending time with family and friends.
Below are pictures of them checking out what
Santa brought them. They each got a baby
doll and a stroller. A and R got Littlest Pet
Shop playthings and M got a sing stage. M loves
music and bounces when it comes on. She also loves to
look at herself in the mirror.

We hope Santa was good to you too!

R's School performance

Here is R's preK class getting ready to sing for their
Christmas performance. They had a BLAST singing
with the other classes 15 or so songs.

R concentrating very hard on what she is doing.

She has a great time. She loves to sing. Way to go, R!

Celebrating the Season

A as "Child #3" in the church Christmas play.
She had lots of lines and did a great job.
R was one of the angels and looked adorable.
Plus she remembered to say her group line
every time.

Santa came for a visit after the play.

Here R and M are telling him what they would like.

M was just more interested in his beard, which

she grabbed a few minutes later.

Here A is very serious about what Santa is saying.

Dress Up for Christmas

Isn't she cute?

R is in our Christmas play at church and one at school.
However, she is not Mary in either one of them. So, she
has been playing dress up at home. It makes my heart
just melt. I love you, R!

Last night was the girls first "ribbon night" at gymnastics.
They did great, and at the end of their classes, they
got ribbons for their hard work. They just started
in August.
The first picture is of R being "shy" (which she is NOT)
upon getting her ribbon. In the second one, we finally
got her to pose for us. She has mastered 40 skills, but we
are not sure how many there are all together.

In the next one, A is holding her ribbon. This
is the best we could get her to do for us in a pose.
She has mastered 58 skills, and we are not
sure about her's either or if they are looking
at the same skills for both girls. They are in
different classes. We are very new to this
gymnastics stuff.

Thanks to Mimi, Poppa, Grammy, Grandaddy,

aunts, uncles and cousins for coming to watch and support us.

We love you all!

Getting those ornaments....

M just loves the Christmas decorations.
Below you can see she is trying very hard
to get an ornament off the tree. She was
successful in doing so. I have also wrapped
very little in the way of presents, because
she goes straight for them and has already
taken the paper off of one. So, I will wait
a bit longer to wrap anymore.


The girls LOVE waffles! So, thanks
to Grammy and Granddaddy for giving
the girls a Cinderella waffle maker.
They were so excited, and thought that
the waffles tasted DELICIOUS!
Below are some photos of the girls
with their first Cindereall waffles.
Thanks Grammy and Granddaddy!
We love you!

p.s. Sorry, cannot get the photos to rotate, and
I forgot before adding them to the page.
