7 and 8 Weeks

here are the pictures of my girls at 7 and 8 weeks.....

*7 Weeks*
Dance Party

i see a bright future for my girls 
on "so you think you can dance".
melanie moore has nothing on my girls..

*8 Weeks*
Sleepover at Grandpa's and Grandma's House

this was taken 
right at bedtime
and clearly
my girls are more ready to rock
than to be rocked.
but that's okay with me.
i totally get the feeling...
i always feel like partying 
when i get to spend time 
with the people i love. :)

6 Weeks Old

again, i took these pictures on time. 
i just didn't (obviously) post them on time.
too busy taking care of my precious little ones
and too busy eating oreos.
i'm eating like i did when i was pregnant.
which is a lot.
which is probably not a good idea long term.
which will probably result in a huge diet extravaganza
that i will fail at anyway.

what can i say?
when i'm happy, i eat!
and i'm so happy.
these girls are my sun and moon.
i love every little thing about them.
i feel so blessed
and i am so thankful
for my teeny tiny giant blessings.

picture time.

molly entranced by the light from the window.

happy girls. i love when they pose the same way on their own.
this happens all the time.
when they sleep.
in their stroller.
and lots of other times.
maybe it's a twin thing??

here is a cute shot of Ava's happy face.
it's not very fair of me to always post the pictures of ava crying
because she is a happy baby....
but she cracks me up-
she literally will be smiling one second and
then all of a sudden
she is sobbing.
but anyway,
she is a happy baby.
she smiles, coos
and is such a sweetheart. :)
case and point.

the girls have become big movers.
wiggling all over.
and when we talk to them,
their whole bodies go into a huge aerobic routine.

the following pictures are just some cute shots.
no commentary needed.
and ignore how the blanket keeps changing colors.
i'm still playing around with my new camera
and don't always have time to edit things the way i want.
loosey goosey.
it's the new me. :)


something else the girls do now is grab things.
not really on purpose.
they're not shaking rattles or anything yet.
but we are definitely on our way there. :)

sometimes grabbing things is scary
and makes us cry.

after our photo session
which both girls were happy for,
i decided to do some shots with the girls and dan.
the girls didn't love that idea.
as soon as daddy laid down,
and daddy joined in to be funny.
and i peed my pants laughing.

and the photo shoot ended.
and we all went downstairs and ate.
the girls had milk.
dan had dinner.
and i had 16 oreos.
kidding. sort of.

5 Weeks Old

I did take the girls' five week picture on time
but forgot to post it here.

The activity went as usual...

Both girls started out fine...

staring at Aunt Nicole and Grandma.



right on schedule
the photo shoot was over
because Ava had a meltdown.

clearly, this girl will never be on
America's Next Top Model.
she can't take the pressure.
