Shayna and Sophie turn 8 months old!

I can't believe Shayna and Sophie are 8 months old already. Time has gone by so quickly. Shayna is constantly on the move. She learned how to crawl just before Thanksgiving and now goes non stop. She wants to crawl and pull herself up and stand 24/7. She has even crawled up all the stairs a few times and is fearless...we are so in trouble. Sophie is my little roller. She rolls to get where she wants and is super patient and calm. My mother says she is like me as a baby :)
They love to play footsies and have cute conversations with each other. Shayna is loud and wants you to hear her when she speaks. Sophie is a babbler, talking more and more each day.
They are both in 6-9 or 12 month clothing and are about to begin using size 4 diapers (the same size Sarah is STILL using)

Here are the girls together

A trip to the park

My mom and I decided to take the girls down to the park, even though the day was cold and overcast. Everyone got bundled up in sweaters and coats and we were off!

Sarah - the ham

Sarah decided to climb on the play structure at the park today, something she hasn't done in quite some time
Taking Sophie on the big girl swings

Shayna's turn

We can't believe that Sarah is old enough to swing on the big girl swings by herself.. Crazy!!!

New toys, new milestones and fun at the park!

Scott and Sarah had a blast with the most inexpensive toy we have... a box of course!

So much fun being pushed around.

The girls turned 6 months old on the 27th. It's crazy how big they have gotten. I will post more details and stats after their pediatrician appointment on Oct.11.

Sophie at 6 months

Shayna happy to be 6 months old!

with age comes new milestones such as trying rice cereal for the first time..

And Sophie is even getting pretty good at sitting..

We took the girls down to the park today but didn't stay too long cause it was really hot out. We were there long enough for a few cute pics though..

Splash park, Sitting and Sweetness

On sunday, we went to the local splash park for some end of summer fun. We packed a picnic and played in the water before and after lunch.

Here is Sarah playing with the horses that shoot water out. They seem to be her favorite thing here.
Cousin Logan getting soaked!

Here is a group shot of all that went.

Today Shayna and Sophie both practiced sitting up. They both did very well and are on their way to sitting independence!

Success for Shayna!

Success for Sophie too!

Sarah had fun today just playing around the house. I took a few shots that I thought were sweet so here they are..

A few days ago, August 30th, Sarah started saying "Book" with a hard "K" sound. Before, it was more like "Bu". Now she says it all the time consistently. Her favorite book right now is "Go Dog Go!" and loves to point to the bird and say, "bird".

Shayna and Sophie are doing great.
We are past the colds that effected all the females in the house. Sophie found her feet this past week, and Shayna is sleeping pretty much through the night, unswaddled.

Brunch and the Park with Family

Today we went to Donna's house for brunch and some play time at the park with the cousins! Donna made a very healthy and nutritious brunch of pancakes and chocolate and strawberry crepes... my kind of healthy!!! After lunch we headed over to the newly revamped University Park. (The twins were there too but I didn't get any good pictures of them to post)

Here's some fun playing peek a boo in the tunnels with mommy and auntie Donna

Fun on the swings with cousin Dilynn

This is a cool park

Having fun

Sarah loving the swings as usual

Sarah and Scott all tuckered out after a great afternoon

4 Month Check Up

Shayna and Sophie had their 4 month check up yesterday. Everything went well and we will see the Dr. again in 2 months. In the meantime, here are their current stats:

Shayna - 13lbs 12 oz, 24.5in long
Sophie - 13lbs 2oz, 25in long
Shayna seems to be hitting all of the 4 month milestones (even though the pediatrician said they should be considered more like a 3 month old because they were multiples, lower birth weight and 3 weeks premature). Sophie is on track with everything except her arm strength. We are still working with her on lifting her chest off the ground and in turn being able to roll from her tummy onto her back. Hopefully within the next month she'll hit those missing milestones. :)

Misc Pics, Concert by the lake and a new toy!

Shayna and I were doing some tummy time which she was enjoying today!

Here are a few pictures of Sarah taken during the last week that I love!

There was a concert by the lake at our house last weekend. Heather brought her girls and we all headed down to hang out on the grass and listen to some 60's music. We had a great time and the girls all did really well.

Scott and Shayna sharing a moment

I'm not sure what was so funny..

A little mommy and Sophie time!

Scott bought the girls a sandbox (ok, so only Sarah can use it for now). Sarah has played in it the past two mornings and seems to really like it. This morning she didn't want to get out!
