15 months

Tess and Lily had their 15 month checkup yesterday... Tess weighs a whopping 18lbs, and Lily tips the scale at 18 lbs 10 oz. Totally fine just petite. I don't know how they can be so tiny, the are constantly eating, or crying to eat. And how can it be that after 3 days of following me around crying, they get a leg full of shots and become cheerful little monkeys again??

They have a new hangout....it makes it hard for me to fold laundry, but gives me a great excuse not to!!!

Random stuff...and a couple of milestones

I've been a little off lately...totally uninspired. I am blaming my upcoming birthday, but there are probably a few other factors.

The babies are walking and into everything. They're so cute, but man, the minute I go near the computer they are right here pushing buttons, banging keys, dumping out my drawers....it's never ending!! The good thing is, that they follow me everywhere, for now, so I always know where they are. BUT, they seem to be crying a lot as they follow me, I can never figure out why, and the minute I shut the door to the bathroom all #$%&* breaks loose. Although this morning I went to get my haircut, and Husband said they were pounding on the bathroom door looking for me and that he had to keep showing them that I wasn't in there....so funny. Just shows how often I go anywhere without them.

Travis spent the entire first week of school teaching himself to ride a two wheeler...yesterday I caught him with his feet up on the crossbar(I think that's what it's called) racing past our house, and then riding side-saddle.....our little XGamer. SCARY!!! Of course he won't let me take any photos of him, and I don't want to make him fall so I don't take them without permission. This morning he screamed at me for 20 minutes because his glass of milk wasn't full enough. I'm hoping for a zoom lens for my birthday....so I can sneak the photos.

Alexa is great...she was in another musical One Magic Moment. So cute. She was with older kids this time, so it was more challenging and she rocked!! Now she is madly rehearsing Little Red Riding hood at school.

Lily, where's your nose?

Tess has a new skill...

And the latest pastime...learning to flip.
