BIG News for Our Family!

We are expecting a 5th member to our family! Due June 2014. Shocked? I bet not as shocked as we were! Thrilled? Not even close to as thrilled as we are! 

The twins turn one in January and the new little one is due in June. So they will be 17 months apart. Three kids under the age of two will be a piece of cake, right? RIGHT?!  ;)

7 Months Old (yes a way late post!)

Now that the babies are 9 months it makes perfect sense to post their 7 month post right? I really have no words for how late these posts are except....I'm busy. And tired. There, that's my excuse.

My little Mase Man. At the end of this month you have learned to roll from your back to your tummy, however you still aren't a big fan of tummy time so after you roll you get very angry! You are wearing size 6-9 month clothes and have just transitioned into size 3 diapers. You also have decided you aren't the biggest fan of the carseat. Thankfully you fall asleep pretty quickly in the car. One of the funniest things to watch is you in the bathtub. You become a statue. You aren't quite sure what to think of it. You lay so still while we bathe you. You furrow your eyebrows into a little scowl and you don't move a muscle until we get you out. It's pretty funny. You definitely keep us entertained and on our toes my little guy.         Love You to the Moon, Your Mommy
You are still one happy baby. You smile more than any baby I've ever met. My favorite thing to do is walk over when you wake up in the morning and say your name. A huge smile comes across your face every single time. It will never get old to see that first thing in the morning. However you are not as much of a morning person as your brother. Mason takes after dad and likes to go to bed early and wake up even earlier. You are like me and need lots of sleep, preferably late into the morning. So I'm glad at least one of us is getting that ;) This month you have also taken a huge interest in toys. You LOVE rattles and light up toys. Can't wait to see what the next month brings to you my little Moo.                                                   Love You to the Moon, Your Mommy

Update on Sleeping In Their Own Rooms

Its been almost a week of the twins sleeping in the nursery. They have done great. They have slept through the night every night. And I have managed to sleep in my own room as well :) The first night I had a little trouble. We have video monitors mounted above each of their beds. The monitor in our room has a split screen and shows both babies. It only kicks the sound on however when they make a noise. So it is silent normally, however when the babies move and fidget in their sleep it will kick on and make that light static like buzzing sound that most monitors make. So every time one of them would move I would wake up, which I normally didn't do when they were in our room. By the second or third night I relaxed a little and turned the volume down a bit and this didn't continue to happen. So all is well now and I think we are all a little better rested with this new sleeping situation. Don't get me wrong....I still don't like it. But I've gotten used to it. Keep in mind though the nursery door is literally 4 steps away from our bedroom door, so that helps ;)

So the day after they slept in their own room Little Miss Independent decided she was quite the big girl and thought she would show me just how big she was. She decided she could sit up on her own! She can now hold this for about a minute or two before she gets too excited and tips over, but hey, she's doing it!

This guy has his sister beat in the rolling department. He will flip over stomach to back or back to stomach in the blink of an eye. But sitting....this proves to be a challenge for this wild man. He can't sit still long enough to learn to sit up on his own! This picture started as him sitting in the nursery chair with his fox doll. By the time I snapped the pic he was wiggling sideways and kicking his feet against the chair. This one is gonna be a handful folks!

We have been ending the past few nights with a walk around the neighborhood. Mason seems to think about walks like he thinks about baths.... that is if you sit perfectly still and quiet and look ticked off it may end sooner. Madeline seems to like walks almost as much as baths. She is all smiles on them!

My goal for the week is to post their 7 and 8 month update pics and letters from Mommy. I took the pictures but never sat and took the time to write the post. I don't know what has gotten into me! I need to get on the ball! But if starting back to work part-time, starting a new business, and having two growing babies isn't a good enough excuse then I don't know what is.....Ya'll forgive me right?

Slow Down!

Well tonight is the night. The night their cribs are moved out of our room and they are off to sleep in their nursery. Let the panic attacks begin. I have dreaded this day since our pediatrician stated she would like them in their own room by the time they were four months adjusted age (so 7 months old). Well here we are....8 months old and we are just now giving it a shot. I just wasn't ready before, nor am I ready now for that matter! So wish us luck. Because right now all I want is for this growing up business to slow down!!!!!
