Trick or Treat

Here are my little trick or treaters. The Cat in the Hat along with Thing 1 and Thing 2. John had so much fun and SO MUCH candy!

6 month stats

The girls had their 6 month check up today. They are getting so big!

Natalie - 26.75 inches long and 17lbs 9.5oz
Rebecca - 28.25 inches long and 20 lbs 3.25 oz

They are both all over the place. They roll and scoot around the room backwards. Natalie can get herself into a sitting position from her belly. Both have moved forward here and there but no crawling yet.

Here are a bunch of new pics of the kids.

And in closing...

I'm not a dinosaur

Yesterday, the girls were in their saucers and John and I were dancing to a little Mickey Mouse Clubhouse when all of the sudden he ran over and bit Rebecca on the forehead! I grabbed him and took him to his room (while he is screaming "it was an accident! It was an accident!"). After calming Rebecca down I went to get him out of time out and he went and told Rebecca he was sorry and gave her a hug. I told him, "We do not bite!" Then he said "Dinosaurs bite." "Yes" I replied, "Dinosaurs do bite." After a moment of thought he looked at me and told me "Dinosaurs bite, but I'm not a dinosaur." True. Very true.

The one that wouldn't smile

Things are changing around our household lately. The girls that were once so quiet and happy to play with each other are now going through some major separation anxiety. If Mike or I leave the room they are in they will immediately be in hysterics. It is making it VERY hard to get anything done around the house. I can put one of them in a sling, but then the other one gets mad. Also, Rebecca has decided to give up sleep. :) She was always my good sleeper, and now she only naps for 30 minutes or so and is waking up once or twice a night too. Luckily Natalie will sleep through her fussing.

John is having a lot of fun at preschool. He's finally starting to answer questions about what he did during the day with specifics like "colored a picture, played on the red train" instead of only answering yes or no to specific questions. It's fun to hear about what all he did and who he played with and see his art projects every day.

He has also started a new thing where every night before bed he wants to go outside to see the moon and stars. See the side bar about his quotes to see what he requested of me last night!

Rebecca - 6 months

Natalie - 6 months

It is VERY hard to get a good picture of Natalie. In person she'll smile and giggle, and then as soon as a camera comes out she will close her eyes, cross her eyes, stick her tongue out, or just stare. It's driving me crazy! :) It took me 2 tries to get a cute pic of Rebecca, and that was only because the 1st one was blurry. I took 17 of Natalie and she's not even smiling in it! Here are a few of her "outtakes" so you know what I'm talking about...
