First Birthday Party!

It's hard to believe that a year has passed! But it's true, babies grow up and turn into toddlers in the blink of an eye. They aren't toddling yet, and I hope they will hold off on that for a little while! Landry and Landon celebrated their first birthday with friends and family surrounding them. They loved all their presents and both loved their first cake!

First Gymboree Class

The babies went to their first Gymboree class today. We just did a trial to see how well it would go. They seemed to enjoy it, so we are going to enroll! I was afraid Landon would cry the whole time. At first he just followed Landry around and then he did his own thing. Addison used to love to go to Gymboree class. She was always a daredevil and made the other moms gasp at her stunts, so hopefully her sister and brother will follow in her footsteps. It never failed, at every class at least one mother would gasp at Addison. It was great! Addison is crazy like that. Anyway, here are pics from their first class!

I think he liked all the colorful mats

New stuff to chew, how fun!

Landon loved the mirror!

Happy as a clam on the parachute!

Landon's First Haircut

Little man was getting a little shaggy, so I had to take him in to get trimmed up!!! He didn't cry one bit and I was surprised at how much hair came off his little head!

Pickin' Blueberries

There's a blueberry farm not too far away that the local Moms of Multiples group was going to today, so I decided Addison and I would go. The high today is supposed to be 98, but I think it was only 90 while we were out there. Too hot for babies! The babies can check it out next year when they are toddling around. There were TONS and TONS of blueberry bushes. You can get a pound of blueberries for just a buck fifty. Pretty good I say! Addison loved picking them. We picked for just under an hour and filled half of our bucket. A lot of the blueberries look like they will be ready for picking next week, so maybe we will go back! Today, we picked two pounds. FUN! After picking, we had a snow cone.

All done! Look at those red cheeks!

Noah's Ark Pool

Today I took Addison and the babies to the Noah's Ark pool. She loved it and didn't want to leave. The babies didn't get to play, but I think they enjoyed themselves anyway! The place was flooded with tots, preschoolers and mommies!



The water was a bit chilly. Note the blue upper lip!

Getting splashed by the mushroom! She would have never done this last summer!




A little bit of a look of terror, but once she realized she wouldn't sink, she went back for more!



Our Little Gymnast

Addison took her first gymnastics class this Spring. She practiced all on her own and taught herself to do a back bend. She has been practicing her cartwheel and almost has that down too! She had so much fun!

Jumping down the trampoline!

Yay for Addison!

Sea World

We decided to take a trip to San Antonio and visit Shamu. We were at the park for 11 hours straight and the babies did awesome! They didn't even fuss a bit! They loved all of it. Addison was a little apprehensive about things getting her, but once she realized all animals were contained in there respective pools, she was ok!!



Shamu! Star of the show!

Towards the end of the day and they are still happy!!!

Zoey, Shellie, and Addison riding the eggs. I go to nursing school with Shellie and she works with David two days a week.

The babies getting some crawl time! They had to close down this great place shortly after because a bird flew in and started to poop everywhere. Bummer!


Addison watching the acrobat and dolphin show. Too much acrobat and not enough dolphin. Used to be a much better show!
So happy to be crawling around!

Tired baby!



After we drove home and were pulling up to the house, Addison asked if she could go back to Sea World tomorrow! She had so much fun. Maybe we'll make this a Memorial Day tradition.

Hangin' at the Park

Today was a beautiful day for the park! The babies love to swing, as does big sister! Addison loves to come down the slide and give me a "spark." Here are the kids in action:






The Texas heat is not far away. That means hitting the park in the early morning before the slides get too hot to use! We will have to check out all the parks within a five mile radius and see which ones are the best!

Addison Takes Swim Lessons

This is Day 3 of Ms. Glendy's Water Babies Class. Addison is very confident on land and very scared in the water. I was surprised to see her trust Ms. Glendy immediately. She cried of course, but she wasn't clawing her nails into her like I thought she would!

Nine Months

The twins had their nine month well-baby today! They are growing so big! Here are the stats:

Landry:
Weight: 17 pounds 13 ounces
Height: 26.25 inches
Head Circ: 16 7/8 inches



Landon:
Weight: 17 pounds 15 ounces
Height: 27.75 inches
Head Circ: 17.25 inches


They are both crawling now. Sometimes they go in the same direction and other times they go their separate ways! They seems to show interest in the same toy from time to time, but are ok sharing for now! Landry pulls up to a standing position and is starting to cruise; Landon pulls up to his knees. Landry has two teeth, and Landon has four. Landry can wave, and Landon can hold his bottle. Landry enjoys her thumb, while Landon enjoys his paci! Big sis still enjoys both her thumb and her paci! Both babies got tubes in their ears on April 2nd for residual fluid after ear infections. By 11:30 a.m. (after the surgery) they were both crawling around like nothing happened. They seem to be doing better now. I think Landon might even be babbling more. They seem to be sleeping a little bit better at night as well, which is always a good thing for all parties involved! They love to eat puffs, yogurt, and they just recently had pancakes! They grooved on those! Soon we will pull out the walker and the sippy cups! It's hard to believe they are growing so fast!

Springtime!

You know spring has sprung in Texas when bluebonnets are in full bloom!!!

Pretty girl, moments before tipping over the chair!

The bluebonnets are as tall as Landry. She just wanted to eat them.


The only picture Landon was happy in! What happened?


Stinkin' mad! Bluebonnets are for girls!



So, it was a successful day in the bluebonnet patch! Maybe we will make this a family tradition until the kids start rolling their eyes!
