It's been a long time since I posted anything at all. Here are some pictures of the girls from the last few months.

The girls have decided that they only want to eat what they can feed themselves. Here they are enjoying some cheerios.

Isabelle was very sick with a bad ear infection (she had a fever for 5 days) and only wanted Mom, so Savannah got to spend a lot of time with Dad. Here they are on their way to church.

Isabelle finally fell asleep without crying for Mom to hold her. I decided not to move her, she slept for about an hour. It was a nice break.

Savannah was a trooper through Belle's sickness. She mostly just rolled/crawled on the floor and played while Mom held Belle.

Easter Sunday!

All dressed up to go visit with cousins in Logan.
Finally! We hold our own bottles

Our first trip to the zoo! We didn't really know what to look for but it was fun to be outside.

At the zoo with some of our cousins.

At the tulip festival. It had just hailed so a lot of the flowers were ruined--but it was still beautiful.

We still get sleepy while we eat and sometimes we just have to take a little nap.

We just love raspberries! One more please.

This Savannah's favorite place to play.
Isabelle thinks its pretty fun too.
Poor Savannah! She got her first ear infections. After having Mom hold her all night and then throwing up all of herself (and Mom) she finally fell asleep on Mom and Dad's bed.
While I was taking care of Savannah, Isabelle somehow managed to crawl into the laundry basket. I don't know how she did it without making any noise.
After a nap and some Motrin someone was feeling well enough to play with her favorite "toy".
Oops! I forgot to rotate this one. Savannah is enjoying a chariot ride in her favorite "toy".

Because you asked

Many of you have asked for some updated pics of the girls. They have been very busy learning all sorts of things in the last few months. They have gotten really good at eating. I think oatmeal and bananas is their favorite meal. They have mastered rolling and now I have to keep a close eye on them to make sure they don't get too close to the stairs. They are experts at sitting up on their own and they love it when you help them stand and walk. They both have their two bottom teeth. They also took there very first trip on an airplane in December. I can't believe how fast they are growing! It seems they will be one before I know it.

Eating can be so exhausting that you sometimes have to just stop right in the middle and take a nap!


Bananas are just so Yummy!

Toes are pretty good too.


At the airport just about to get on an airplane for the first time.

We loved our visit with Great Grandma.

Why sleep in the pack-n-play at the hotel when you can sleep in mom & dad's bed?

Baby's First Christmas



Look at us sitting up! Play time just got SO MUCH BETTER!

A Few Pictures from the last 4 months

The girls slept for 6 hours and 50 min. last night! I might survive motherhood after all. Here are a few pictures from the last few months. It has gone by so fast--it all seems like a blur. I love being a mother, despite being tired all the time. Thankfully, I have had a lot of help from family and my visiting teacher. There have been very few days when someone has not been able to help me out for at least an hour or two.

Brian is such a good dad! He helps as much as he can when he's home and he helps me during the nights on Fridays and Saturdays. He also gives the girls their baths and cuts their nails (I am too afraid that I'll make them bleed). He can also get them to talk and laugh a lot more than I can.
