Our Angels!

Abby and Chloe are going as angels for Halloween. Here is a sneak peek of what the girls will look like tonight. These are from Toddler Time at the library on Thursday! Joe took the day off and we had a great time. He got to see what Mommy and the girls do on Thursday mornings!

Happy Halloween

A little pumpkin humor!



Pumpkin Patch

We took the girls to the pumpkin patch to pick out their first pumpkins. Although this is really their 2nd Halloween, they were way too small last year to do all the festivities! We opted for the little ones that are just their size.

Abby's Strolling!

Abby is getting really close to walking these days. She is balancing on her own and when she gets down from holding onto something she lets go completely. Here she is walking with her baby stroller!

Dancing Chloe

Chloe loves moving to the music. Anytime a good song comes on she takes the opportunity to dance! She will be so cute when she can stand and dance. I can't wait!

All Lined Up

Here are Abby and Chloe playing with their Little People Noah's Ark Animals. Have I told you I love the Little People Collections. Joe found a Little People Nativity Scene and Christmas Village at Toys R Us. Its hard to pick out my favorite because I love them all. I looked at a Little People ride on toy today that was really cute!

New Professional Photos

We took the girls to get some more professional pictures taken on Saturday. We were a bit behind on their one year pictures. The day was beautiful! No matter what Joe and I did the girls would not smile for any of the pictures. Can we say shy. We got a few smiles out of Chloe while she was crawling away from the camara. We ended up with four shots we liked. Here they are:

Chloe's Favorite Game...

Chloe loves it when you put a toy on top of her head. She thinks it is so funny. She just started to look up to try to see it too! When it falls off she will pick it up and try to put it back on her head.

Ride On Toys!

We bought the girls another ride on toy at the biannual Jackpotts garage sale for a $1! The girls loved it the minute we got it home! We had the pink pony but the little truck is just a bit shorter and wider. This makes it easier for our new learners to balance. They've already mastered the art of going backwards!

Two Hooters...

Hey, hey, hey...it's not at all what you are thinking...last night on our evening walk with the girls we saw two owls. We heard them hooting first. Then we spotted one. Then we realized there were two. They were flying from branch to branch and we were able to get a really great look at them. They were quite large and brown and absolutely beautiful! I haven't seen an owl besides at a zoo in years!
This is what they looked like:

Chloe Sleeping Progress!

I am so happy to be blogging about my Chloe and her sleep progress. She has really made a huge turnaround! Friday and today she went right to sleep in her crib without fussing or crying what so ever. Thursday and Friday night she slept the whole night in her crib! We put Abby in the pack n play in our room so when Chloe woke up we could just let her settle herself without waking Abby. This has worked out great! Thursday night Chloe woke up about 5 or 6 times, cried for a few minutes and then went back to sleep. Friday night Chloe only woke up twice and just cried for about two minutes before returning back to sleep. I have switched them to taking only one nap in the afternoon and this has seemed to help with the problem as well. They both slept from 12:45 to 3:45pm yesterday (3 hours!!!). Thanks for all your thoughts, prayers and great advice! It really helped us get through this difficult time!
