The girls had so much fun this Halloween. We tried to do a little Trick-or-Treating in our neighborhood but it was so cold and only two or three homes on our block were giving out candy. Jason had fun with scary sound affects and the girls thought all the noises were so much fun!! Here are some pics of the girls!

Maya had to try on the bigfoot slippers at the store….she looked so cute!

10 months!

These girls have grown up so fast this past month. Both girls have been talking a lot more…..gibber gabbering all day! It is so much fun watching them play with each other. I sometimes catch them just laughing at each other. It makes my day! They have also started eating more finger foods and feeding themselves. It has definitely made meal times more exciting!

Maya started crawling on all fours. It was so much fun!!! It was as if one morning everything just clicked and she new how to crawl. She also stood by herself for the first time after Dad let go of her hands.

Lily has been standing and even has taken a step or two on her own. She is so funny because she has the most determind look on her face like she wants to try and take a step forward….then chickens out and sits on her bottom!

9 Months and Growing!

I know that I say this every month but these girls are just growing way too fast!!! It seems like each day they are changing and learning so much. Our little Lily has become an expert crawler, loves to pull herself up to standing on furniture and even tries to let go for a few seconds and stands on her own! Maya Bug is such a delight, her smile can brighten up any day! She has become an expert army crawler….(She was tired of being left behind and decided she should get her move on!) She also is watching Lily’s every move and tries to pull herself up too. Both girls love to play with the I-pad, and anything and everything else they are not suppose to get into!! 🙂 And both girls are getting MORE TEETH, each girl has at least two or three coming in on the top! That makes for some cranky, sleepless babies…..(and mommy too!) 🙂 It has been so much fun this past month to watch their personalties come to life…..I just LOVE these little girls!

8 months already?

Can I just say that I absolutely LOVE my girls!? They are just the cutest things ever. Both girls are growing so fast! Lily has started crawling not just the army crawl/scoot but actual crawling!!! And the Bug……well she is just our little musician….she love to play her piano and the drums. Here are a few pictures!

7 months!!!

These ladies are so much fun! This month we took their first plane ride to visit Grandma and Grandpa Simonsen. Mom was a little nervous for the flight but the girls did GREAT! I am just so blessed with such good girls. These two have been growing and changing more and more each day. Here is are some of their milestones this month:

Lily has just grown so much…she is weighing in at 15lbs 12oz. What a bundle of energy!!! She always has to be on the go….even when she is dead tired! She is getting more consistent at moving forward but not really crawling yet. Oh, and she has definitely found her lungs!!!! She is a very determined little girl and when she wants something she will let you know. LOL.

Maya is not to far behind her sister weighing in at 14lbs 9oz. She is such a little sweetie. She is a little more “chill” than her sister but still loves to play.  She has learned to sit up all by herself while at Grandma and Grandpa’s house and getting more sturdy every day. And she just loves to blow bubbles, make zombie noises, and tell you stories!
