What An Amazing Couple Of Days...

Two days ago, JORDYN CRAWLED!!!! And there's no stopping her. We got it on video and once I figure out how to get it on my computer (without it crashing) I will post! :) She also found out she can pull herself up...on the couch, on my leg, the pillow...just about everything! And that's ALL she wants to do. It's so fun!

Then, yesterday, Avery was fussing in the crib after her nap and when I walked in the room, she was STANDING and holding on to the rail. 'Oh crap' I said. Then I ran and grabbed my camera. :) She got on her tummy, reached over to the bumper pad, pulled herself to her knees, reached up to the railing on the crib with one hand, then with the other, and POP! She is up. We are going to need a tent over the top or Avery will go 'splat'. We don't want that.

So, the cribs we ordered back in August won't be here until the end of October!! The END of OCTOBER????!!!! Jeepers. I needed at least one more crib, like, yesterday! I called a few weeks …

Wow..Where'd September go?

It's almost half over for cryin' out loud!! Holy molys. The babies will be 9 months old in 2 weeks. I actually have to start thinking about their first birthdays. So crazy.
We celebrated our 4th anniversary yesterday and it feels like longer--But in a good way :) We are going to dinner and a show "jersey boys" next week and Tony is surprising me with some trip or something in the coming months, but he won't tell me when or where. Should be fun...I'm hard to surprise and so far, he has done a good job!

Avery is rocking on all fours so she should be full on crawling any moment. She does this thing where she sneaks over to the wicker garbage can, tips it over and crawls in, and proceeds to empty the entire contents onto the floor. Then she pulls up onto the bottom of the side table where Tony leaves the paper he's already read before putting it in the recycle bin and she pulls the papers off. We say her name several times for her to stop and she ignores the fi…

And so the cycle continues...

Just when things were going so smoothly, we get another set-back.

The girls are sick...again. Do all kids get sick this often, or is it just mine?? I took Ash to the doc yesterday and he said she just has a cold. Ave is starting to sneeze and get a runny nose and she had a low grade fever yesterday. Jordy is teething --making her just grumpy and restless all the time so if she gets it, it's not going to be fun.
We invited two couples over to watch a game today and both of them have babies (one of them is just under two months old) so I had to call them a let them know that the girls were sick. I would only want someone to do the same for us. Their husbands may still come, but they may not. bummer. It's in their best interest, though--we've gone to see people with sick children
(but were unaware until too late) and regretted not leaving because we were selfish or didn't want to offend people by saying "bye bye". Then the girls got sick and things are never good w…
