6 month photographs

SueSue came along to help with the wardrobe changes.  By this point Brooklyn was out!
The babies were both fine when we first arrived, but Brooklyn quickly got tired and fussy.  She definitely was not a fan of laying in the hay.  Tayden enjoyed every minute and even posed with Daddy for an extra picture.

Opening Weekend

This weekend the twins rocked their Steelers onesies in support of the first official game of the season.  It was neat to see Tim watching the game while holding Tayden - a father-son tradition in the making.  On this same weekend last year we were in the ER thinking that I had miscarried one or both babies, and ended up hearing both heartbeats for the first time.  It is amazing to think of how far we have come since that terrifying day.  God carried us through that day and every day since and we now have two precious, healthy babies.  Tayden has been battling a stuffy nose and a cough.  Tim took him to the doctor on Tuesday and she thought that it was just his allergies.  We have started him back on nebulizer breathing treatments to help with the wheezing.  I am in the process of scanning all of the six month pictures so check back soon to see those!

Sitting Up

We survived our family pictures last weekend and as soon as I have them I will post them.  It was definitely an experience!

Brooklyn has started to sit up on her own!  She will sit for a few minutes and then slowly start to lean to the side and crash.  She is still being very particular about eating baby food.  On Thursday I gave her bananas mixed with oatmeal and she actually ate about half of a jar - so I think we have found something she likes.  She continues to be very verbal and coos and laughs most of the day.  We weighed her this week and she was 17 pounds 3 ounces.

Tayden is doing great with his tummy time.  He is holding his head up like a champ, but he still has the tendancy to lean it to one side.  Tim continues to do his neck stretches with him each day.  He absolutely LOVES baby food of any kind.  He will eat it warm, cold, with oatmeal or straight out of the jar.  Tayden has become as verbal as his sister and especially comes to life at night with lots of laughing and cooing.  When we weighed him he was 16 pounds. 

Both babies have cut back from 5 bottles a day to 4 larger ones.  We are feeding them baby food 1-2 times a day.  They usually take 1 or 2 good naps during the day and then go to bed between 10 - midnight.  They both sleep all the way through the night until about 9 a.m.  Tim still enjoys being home with them and the bond he has with them is amazing.  They love their daddy!!! 

Our house did show once this week and the feedback was the same as always.  Beautiful flooring, great backyard, tiny kitchen!!!   UGH!!!!  Please continue to pray that our house will sell in a timely manner!
