6 months!

The twins turned 6 months old yesterday!!! I can't believe it has been half a year since they were born. Whoa. We had the 6 month doctor appointment today. David is 14 lbs, 1 oz, and Margot is 11 lbs, 8 oz! Their doctor was very happy with their size and said they looked great. They got 4 shots each and were sooooo not thrilled about that! But now they are asleep in their cribs like little angels.....

October fun

We have had a fun week! Last Friday, David and Margot each rolled over (from their tummies to their backs). And yesterday Margot laughed for the first time. She was giggling at Martha. :) They have also been to a couple of parties - a sip and see for Rory and Delaney and Nathan Syrett's first birthday party. They are very good in public! Such good babies. Also, we tried putting the babies in their exersaucers. They LOVE them!

We had our first trip with the babies this weekend when we went to Manhattan, KS for our friends' wedding. While we were there, David and Margot hit some milestones. David rolled himself over to his side - almost all the way over to his stomach - for the first time. And, even more fun, David and Margot coo-ed to each other! It was incredible. Also, Debbie had Bubba's old silver rattle which was the perfect size for the babies to hold and play with. And we found out that David and Margot LOVE the "caveman television" - or fire in the fireplace. They were entranced by it. :)

What a weekend!

I had a bad cold this weekend, but we still had a lot of fun. David and Margot tried their Johnny-Jump-Ups for the first time, and it was a success. Margot loved hers so much that she fell asleep in it.

We moved the pack and play into Ba and Da's den (because Da was putting together the second crib in their satellite nursery), and they had a nice time in it. Margot kept trying to hold David's hand. It was so cute. David is always trying to eat his fist (the boy has an appetite)....he even tried to eat Margot's arm! Ha!

Martha and Chris brought over some new outfits for the twins, including these K-State onesies and bibs that they wore during the KSU vs Iowa State game. So cute!:
