First beach trip!

This past weekend we took a trip to the Tampa area to visit our friend Savanah while she is home from California for the summer. We even took the girls to see the Gulf of Mexico for the first time! They really loved it and are already beach babes!!!

It wasn't long before the sounds of the ocean put Audrey right to sleep. We've never seen that child sleep that well before!!!

Here's a shot of the 4 of us enjoying the waves. The sun did some damage that day and fried daddy to a crisp. Luckily the girls got off with just a touch of sun on their cheeks. All in all we had a great trip and enjoyed getting out with the girls and catching up with friends!

Have twins? Will travel!

Since the girls have been born, our outings have become few and far between. When we do get out it is planned and executed like a small military operation. But that hasn't stopped us! We have been to Sea World twice, to a bridal shower, a wedding, an overnight stay in a hotel, out to restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and across town to visit friends and family for day trips. I hope as the girls continue to grow, we will still be mobile an expose them to many different things and places!

This weekend, we attended my friend Jen's wedding. It was beautiful and I got to catch up with a lot of my high school buddies. This is where the picture was taken :) Today we introduced the girls to their great Aunt Kathy and Uncle Nate! Soon (hopefully) I'll be posting more pictures to our photo album!!

Growing up!

It's official! Slowly, but surely the girls are growing up. These days they are napping in their crib and last night was the first night in their crib! They can hold up their heads and no longer like being held like "babies." They want to be held in a sitting position facing out to see the world.

We have started Madison in cloth diapers and Audrey will be soon to follow! Can't wait to see what the next few months have in store for us!

2 month update!

On Monday the girls had their 2 month check up. Audrey weighed in at 8lbs 5oz and was in the 5th percentile for weight and length. Head circumference was in the 10th percentile. Madison weighed 9lbs 7oz and was 20th percentile for weight, 5th percentile for head circumference and 70th percentile for length. Looks like we're going to have at least one tall baby! Things have been going pretty well but we have a fussy time in the evenings now. The 8pm feeding is not our friend!

Over the last month, we have been to SeaWorld twice. Once with Paige, Michelle and Michael and again when Nolan came home from basic training. It has been nice to get out and they have really nice nursing facilities there too. Seems weird to have to go to a theme park to have a private place to nurse my babies!

We also had a family BBQ at mom's for Nolan's return from basic training. It was the first time most of the family had seen the girls. After the BBQ the babies got to get their feet wet in the pool for the first time. (Rusty and I were both swim instructors during our time as lifeguards!!) Soon enough they'll be little swimming fish!

As always, new pics are posted in our album :)
