What a whirlwind this last week and a half has been! Now that school has started back, and football is in full swing, we are running ourselves ragged. Everyone is doing well though, and trying to re-adjust into this busy lifestyle that we almost forgot existed during our relaxing summer!
This past week we started fruits. It didn't quite go as we had expected. We started with peaches because that is something that both Momma & Daddy like, so we assumed that the girls would love them too. WRONG! Then we tried bananas & they hated them too! They take after their Momma on the bananas...ick. We were beginning to think that Avery & Kenadee were just going to be veggie lovers, but when we tried the applesauce, we hit the jackpot. They loved the applesauce! YAY! We still have pears to try, but we're having applesauce for the next few days first. So far, both babies like and dislike the same foods. The veggies they love are squash, peas, and sweet potatoes. And, so far, the only fruit they like is applesauce. Hopefully they'll like pears too. We'll find out pretty soon :)
The babies have both turned into little chatter boxes. It's hilarious. They talk constantly. They love to chit chat with each other, with Momma & Daddy, and with anyone else who will listen. They've been rolling over more and more and more. Sometimes, it's at the most inopportune times. They like to turn their little tricks when they're supposed to be sleeping. Turning over tends to ruin nap time, as it wakes them up when they roll.
Today, Kenadee made Momma's day. She was in her exersaucer (which they both LOVEEEEEE...thank you Gran & PawPaw!) and I thought she might be ready to get out, so I went over to her and said, "Are you ready to get out of there, Kenadee?" And guess what that little toot did??? She REACHED FOR MOMMA!! Wooohooo! I was so excited that I took a few steps back, walked up to her again, and asked the same question (getting Jason's attention first so he could watch), and she did it again. What a smart girl. :)
The last couple of weeks have been a very busy time and have gone by so fast. School has started back, football is going on, and we are constantly on the go. Oh, and ... ta duh ... our babysitter quit. Luckily, we had a backup plan in case that happened, and our new babysitter (who will be fabulous and better not quit or I'll kill her, lol) starts on Tuesday. We've been really busy & the girls are growing up so fast. It's hard to believe they're nearly 1/2 a year old. Where does the time go?? Well, anyway...I guess that's it for this entry. I hope you enjoy the pictures!
