8 Months!

How time flies!

We are definitely getting much more active. Not yet crawling, still in the early "flailing" stage.

But lots of sleep and lots of eating and lots of laughs and smiles and bouncing in our jumpers/saucers.

AND we've started eyeing the cats... they have no idea what they are in for!

Cape Cod Cousins

More pics and vids from Cape Cod - where we met our cousins for the first time!!!

She's coming around...

Brady gets into the picture. It won't be all boys for long - Ava will get a little GIRL cousin this September! She is pumped.

On the Cape

This past weekend, we brought the twins to Nana and Papa's house on the Cape and it was nice enough to go to their beach! Michael's brother, Drew and our nephews Jack and Brady were also visiting. The water was warm and they both loved to splash around and then nap (or simply just laugh in Ava's case) in an SPF-50 beach tent we got for them off Amazon. I'm honestly not sure what was so funny in the tent...the blue fabric? Colin was napping beside her, maybe he was tooting which gave her the giggles! Or perhaps she was laughing at Mommy's valiant attempt to not look like a whale in a bathing suit...9 months up, 9 months down my ass. The experience flung me straight into a run with hubby and the babes yesterday and a first-time pilates workout today. Being 5'1" and 35 years young did not let me carry twins gracefully let's just say.

And lastly, here is proof from last week that Ava is starting to be able to sit, although she leans forward quite a bit...oh and she does smile for the camera once in awhile!

Ava Eating and Drinking

The twins are starting to help themselves to water out of their sippy cups, and also "eating" frozen fruit - thanks to their mesh feeders!

Happy Fourth!

These outfits were the closest we had to Fourth of July outfits - at least they were red, white, and blue!

We weren't in too much of a smiling mood...

Until later, when we were able to try out our first ever double swing at the park!

We loved being out the nice weather and we loved swinging!!!

And here we are in action...
