Looks like it’s time to lower the mattresses in the cribs!

Theme issues fixed! How do y’all like the new one? It’s kind of reminiscent of the first one we had, but I like it better.

In other news, we’ve got two girls who are THIS CLOSE to pulling up on furniture. Oh dear.

So, it appears our new theme for the blog is a bit buggy – we apologize for the viewing issues. It’s cute, but I think we’re going to have to find something else to use, since this one doesn’t want to display things like it should. Bear with us!

One of the best things about being the mother of two little girls is getting to dress them up. I think the girls already own more outfits than I do, and are well on their way to rivaling my shoe collection.

Granny and Papa aren’t doing much to help this situation – they like to buy the girls clothes (I think it’s Granny more than Papa, actually), and always have something new and cute for the girls when they visit. These dresses were a present brought when Granny and Papa visited at Easter, and we haven’t had much of a chance to put the girls in them until now, so we dressed them up prettily for Mother’s Day when we were on our way to visit Poppy at her retirement home.

The girls are now in the phase where they LOVE to play, especially with mommy, daddy, or each other. Which also means they are now in the phase where they crack us up on a daily basis.

In this picture, it may seem like Erin is simply showing Gracie how the pacifier clip works. In reality, she’s actually swinging said pacifier clip at Gracie’s head (ignore mommy in the background).


Gracie LOVES to play with mommy. As you can see below.

Erin mostly likes to go places she’s not supposed to.

It’s starting to hit us that our little babies are going to be a year old in three and a half months. I find myself looking at pictures of them right after they were born and just being astounded at how small they were, and how helpless they were. Now they’re laughing, crawling, sitting up, playing, and darn near pulling up on furniture these days… time flies!
