6 months old already!

I took John and Megan in for their 6 month checkup last week.

They are doing great! They are moving right along (but below) the curve of the growth charts.

They now eat cereal/fruits/vegetables three times a day and the rest of the time are still breastfed. John absolutely loves peaches. Megan eats everything, but wants to feed herself most of the time. She is usually filthy when we get done eating.

John weighs 12 lbs 6 oz!
Megan weighs 11 lbs 2 oz!

They continue to amaze me. They are laughing and making adorable sounds! John is very close to sitting up and they both roll all over the place! I can't wait to see what the next few months will bring!

Last chance for calendar purchase!

Hi everyone. Sorry to say, but this is the last chance to order calendars online.

Greta (the woman who made the calendars) is going to hold a few back, but the rest will be put in local stores so that they sell over the holiday.

If you are at all interested, please take the initiative to order now before they run out.
Click on the link below to go directly to the webpage to order the calendar.

Holiday Photo Shoot

Some of you were not able to access the photo shoot that we just did. This is because it was on the photographers Facebook account. If you do not have facebook that was the problem.
Here is a link to follow http://www.hrphotodesign.com/proofs/ choose Nickel, enter gallery, password is holiday.

I love the fall! The smell of leaves and the beautiful colors. Sadly, I think that it is over as the snow has begun!

Thankfully I put the kids outside in the leaves earlier in the week.

John tried to eat the leaves the entire time he was in the pile.
Megan had no idea what to think and just laid there for a few minutes until she saw her brother having a taste.

Photo Shoot!

Follow this link to see some new pictures!
We had a great photo shoot done by Heather Rogers at an amazing house. I can't wait to see the rest of the photos.

When it rains it pours!

I am in total shock right now.
I received a phone call around 6 this morning telling me that my grandpa passed away.
He went into the hospital three days ago to have his gallbladder removed and was recovering nicely.
I talked to my grandma Jean last night and she said that he was doing good and that she was going to pick him up today.
This comes not even two weeks after my grandma Peggy passed away.
I keep thinking about what my grandma Jean is going through and hope that she knows how much we all love her and are there for her. I am sure that it will be a trying time and I hope that she leans on us as much as she needs to.

Hi everyone!
I wanted to let you know that the calendar benefiting the NICU at St. Joes is completed and ready for ordering.
I just went on Greta Myers website to make sure that you could access it and to my surprise the twins are on the cover.
Each child in the calendar is either a NICU graduate or a sibling of a NICU graduate. Greta has donated all profit of the sales of the calendar to the NICU. Please feel free to order one (or two).
