7 months old

All 3 girls about to go the pool (twins aren't swimmers yet)

Allison blowing bubbles (or veggies if it is dinner time) and Brooke ready to get down and crawl!

I love you sistee! (i love Brooke's arn in this one, she looks so big)

Thing ONE and Thing TWO! Funny huh?

The twins are now 7 months old as of August 20th! I can NOT believe 7 months have already passed! This time last year, I was a mess, thinking of EVERYTHING we had to do before Allison and Brooke got here. I was about to start my 12th year of teaching school, Claire was going to her first day of Primrose, and Junior was starting his first year as principal of Christie Elementary. Man what a year does!!! I am NOT starting school this year, Claire is going to Mother's Day Out at our church (thank GOD) and Junior will be starting his 2nd year of being the principal of a great school in Frisco ( his school got an exemplary rating this past year, FIRST time in the history of the school, I think it has EVERYTHING to do with the principal, I'm just saying....)
Here are some new stats on the girls.....

WE HAVE A CRAWLER!!! Brooke is out of control already. Today while I was getting dinner ready, enters Brooke to the kitchen, first time her little knees ever touch the kitchen floor. She also has 2 teeth! She is pulling up in her bed (which we were supposed to lower this weekend, but didn't get around to ) She says dadadada all the time. She LOVES to be in the mix of whatever everyone else is doing. She is still pretty little, about 15 pounds now, but moving ALL over the place. She is a hoot!

Allison is doing great too! She is a smiley girl! She LOVES her mother to no end....doesn't want me to leave the room or put her down. She isn't crawling, persay, but did army crawl this morning to get a bottle i laid on the floor!! I think we are about to have 2 crawlers on our hands.... Lord help me...Alli doesn't have any teeth yet, but is really working on one, or two! Alli HATES ALL veggies. She spits them ALL over the place at dinner every night. I have come to terms with it now, I just let her blow them all over me every night. Allison says hi now too!
Happy 7 months girls! I can't believe it! We love you very much!!!

Allison wouldn't let go of the paci.!

junior, jill and the girls (yes, Brooke, I am still here)

This past weekend, August 9th, we had the girls baptized at our church, Grace Avenue United Methodist Church in Frisco, TExas. It was a great day for all of us. We had many family members with us to celebrate. I thought Billy's sermons was most fitting for the day, it was about gathering together! Let me tell ya, we GATHERED! Thank you to everyone who was with us in person, thought, prayer, and in heaven! We love you all from the bottom of our hearts and know our girls will feel your love forever!
