Too Big!
Well it's time for another update on Reagan and Claire, so I hear. We will start with Claire because I know she was second born and I don't want her to have a complex about that for the rest of her life. She is doing great. She is definitely a little firecracker when you meet her. She enjoys screeching to the point of breaking windows and making the dog howl. Grandma W says this is good for her future singing. We shall see. She still does not have a lot of favorites when it comes too food. Her only real winner is rice cereal. She will occasionally give in and eat her fruits and veggies.
Claires latest "major accomplishment is sitting up. Yay! She does still occasionally fall over but she is mastering it very fast.

Now for the "big guy", Reagan. He is doing quite well. Tuesday was the big helmet day. We went in the morning and he had to wear the thing for three hours that day and six hours the next. From then on it's 23 and a half hours a day. He does get a little tired but it has gone better than expected. He is sleeping pretty well with it. Our only complaint is that it gets so hot. Thank goodness this is not the middle of summer! In other Reagan news he loves to eat everything I give him. Including but not limited to peas(a favorite), sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, green beans, pears, apple sauce, bananas mashed up, yogurt, and so on. Oh and he likes chicken in a jar. This makes me want to gag but hey what can I do?

The whole family was happy to see G & G Adams this past week when they came to visit. They had fun taking the babies for walks and getting up with them in the middle of the night. Mommy and daddy really liked it too!

Now I am just sad that they are growing up so fast. It seems like just yesterday I was pregnant. Where did the time go? They are both little people now and I can't imagine my life with out them!

Have a great weekend everyone!

SIX Whole Months!

Well they say time flies when you're having fun right? Reagan and Claire are doing great. We had a doctors appointment on Friday and both are doing everything they are suppose to developmentally so that is great! Reagan is up to 17 and a half pounds and 27.75 inches. That puts him at about 50th percentile for weight and 87th for height. Claire is at 14 and a half pounds and 26 inches. Her head made it to the 7th percentile...getting up there! The doctor was happy with their growth and said keep up the good eating!

We have been keeping busy. Daddy is back to work as of last week so we had to make do all by ourselves. There was no time to get bored though! Monday we went to Costco to buy some groceries! Wednesday was our first MOPs (Mothers of Preschoolers) group meeting. We met some new friends there. Thursday we had Reagan's Physical therapy which is going well. And Friday as we said we went to the doctor. I can't remember Tuesday! We have another big week coming up with Mommy going to the doctor, Reagan going to get fitted for a helmet and Lori coming on thursday to watch the babies while Mommy has some free time!

We also just got back from Detroit. Mommy and Daddy went to the MSU game. Go Green! The babies spent the day with G & G Wilmering and went to The Davidsons later to meet friends!

Before we get to the pics here are some of their latests accomplishments...

Reagan is enjoying more green veggies- green beans and we have started applesauce. He likes to say bababababababababababa A LOT. He also makes an H sound. He is starting to roll over when he goes to sleep. He laughs a lot.

Claire still thinks most food is gross. She likes to make very loud high pitched noises to hurt mommy, daddy, and sydney's ears. She likes bouncing on your lap. Recently she started laughing at her own "inside" joks. I watched her pick up a my puppy book and just laugh over and over. She is also able to put her pacifier in on her own.
