Fifth month

Our babies are six months old. Wow, half of their first year is over. We are soo thankful for them and have loved watchingthem grow. In their fifth month they grew so much. I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for each of them. This last month the babies have started eating a little solids. Drew sleeps like a champ and Charis is getting better as she gains more weight. My favorite things about this month have been Charis rolling over and Drew starting to reach for you. I know I better hold on tight because the next six months will be wild

Charis has skills

Yay! After much prayer my baby girl is rolling over. She did it for the first time on June 19th but, then wouldn't do it again for a while. I started to get worried and now she is rolling like crazy. Her new skill threw her for a loop for a bit. She couldn't sleep for a couple of days because she is a big fan of the swaddle and we had to ease her out of it now that she is such a big girl. She woke every 45 minutes screaming. She is not a CIO baby because she throws huge tantrums for something so small and kicks her little legs so hard the mattress comes up. Now we use a sleep sack and put her on her tummy (don't tell) and she sleeps better, only waking a couple of times at night. We are so proud of her new little skill!

Our Fightin Texas Aggie Class of 2032 babies got duded up in their Aggie gear. There was no game and we weren't in BCS but, it would be awful if they outgrew their Aggie gear with no pictures so we are sporting it today. They are going to love their 4, okay probably 5, years at A&M.

In the words of Dwight K Schrute, "Identity theft is not a joke". For real. I have been embarrassed all over town because as I drag my babies through a store just in time for one to start crying in line (strike one against me), my card is DECLINED (major strike two- people are way judging now). So when that happened yesterday I thought it was a fluke, like God was just needing a laugh. Today I did all my Father's Day shopping and got up to pay and the same thing happened again (minus the crying). So I hot footed it over the Chase and apparently they froze my account because there was "unusual activity". Someone got a hold of my info and used my card to buy, get this, a table tennis set and a body building set to the tune of $500. I am guessing it was Forrest Gump. So I am now waiting a week to get a new card and writing checks like in the 90's. I need to break out my Dooney and Burke wallet to go with my checks.

Zoo Day

My Mom and I took the babies to the zoo last Friday. It was really fun. We rode the train, saw some animals and ate ice cream. Charis loved looking at everything go by on the train. We had fun!

Nappy Kids

Today was almost relaxing. I didn't have to work and the babies were super duper nappers. They took an hour nap this morning and then (get ready) a 2 and a HALF hour nap this afternoon. THEN after being awake two hours after that they were tired again and are taking a quick nap now. I can get on board with this kind of growth spurt. We have been really busy lately and they haven't had a full day home in a long time, so I think they were plum tired. Poor babies! I didn't know what to do with my free time. I took a 45 min nap, read Francine Rivers new book, and did laundry. I also killed about 40 flies. Sick, I know. I sometimes sit on the back porch with Baby A while Baby B is napping and leave the door open so I can hear Baby B. I guess I will have to use the monitor for now on because the flies snuck in.

Oh, by the way, our house is for sale. So if you want it come and get it. Otherwise, please pray it sells super fast because I hate cleaning and I really want to move to Bedford.

Dr. Evil likes green beans

Poor Drew scratched himself when he was playing. With his little bald (but beautiful) head and the scratch he looks like Dr. Evil's child. I made some green beans in my new food processor and it was easy, even for a microwave chef like me. I froze it but, Drew tried a little and he was interested. I need to put a little water next time to get it to a smoother texture for him.

Today we are heading to the zoo. I am praying for a breeze to follow us all day, because you can pray for anything.

My Dad took us shopping at Target last week. He got the babies high chairs, some toys, and me a food processor to make baby food with. It was so sweet of him to bless us this way. He pushed the stroller while I pushed our cart. Now we are all set for some solid food. Drew is getting pretty good at taking it. Charis is not quite ready. This is Granddaddy in the parking lot with the babies.
