We Have Lift Off

This is Henry's accomplishment for the week.  Needless to say Nick lowered his mattress before bed!

Henry is a busy body.  He wants to go all the time.  He thinks there is always something more fun to play with over there.  I ran to the kitchen and when I came back I found him playing in Cali's kitchen with this silly grin on his face!  He is so proud of his exploring!

Hannah is such a laid back girl.  She is just content to sit and play with toys.

Yesterday was the first time she showed any interest in going somewhere.  She went from sitting to her tummy then wiggled a little.  No real movement but this is a good start!

Time to baby proof the house again!

Blueberries and Peaches

For a summer adventure we decided to take the kids to pick blueberries and peaches today.   Nick was working so my mom "Nana" came to help.   Nana and Cali picked the peaches while I stayed with the twins.  Then Cali, Henry and I headed out for blueberries while Nana and Hannah stayed in the shade.

Cali found a blueberry!  It was pretty warm so we didn't pick that many.   Luckily they had pre-picked ones that we could add to our small pile.

 They had a tent with a cool air fan going that we enjoyed after our hard work.

8 Month Twin Update

Henry and Hannah are eight months old today!  I say this every month but man it goes by fast!  It seems like the key to the first year with babies is survival.  Once you get past the year mark you can start to breath and relax some.

Due to scheduling and life being crazy the babies just went to their six month check up this week.  They got 2 shots and did great!

The Dr. suggested we start to introduce sippy cups.  Cali is showing Hannah how to do it.  Hannah liked it but Henry wasn't a fan.  We'll work on it.

Henry - 8 months
Hannah - 8 months

Hannah loves to stick out her tongue! 

Food - Four breast milk bottles a day.  Hannah takes 5-6 ozs, Henry 5-8 ozs.  They love solid food and are experimenting with finger foods.  They get three solid food meals a day.   They love green beans, pears, bananas, avocado, and carrots.  Hannah prefers fruit while Henry likes the veggies.
Sleep - They take a morning nap and an afternoon nap.  They are in the process of dropping the third nap.  Some days they make it with 2 naps some days they need 3. They go to sleep at 8pm and wake up at 6:30am.  
Clothes - Hannah is in 3-6 and 6-9 month.  Henry is in 6-9 month size.
Weight -  Hannah 15 lbs 4 oz Henry 17 lbs 11 oz
Height - Hannah 26 inches Henry 28 inches  
Diapers - Pampers size 3
Health - Hannah continues to improve on the meds for the Hemangioma.  Somedays you can't even see her red spot!  She also seems to have "food sensitivity" to strawberries.  So we will avoid those for a while.  She ate strawberry yogurt and her skin turned red on her face where the yogurt was.

Fun Facts - Henry is a tummy sleeper.  If you lay him down on his back we will roll over to his tummy.  Hannah is very laid back.  She will sit and play by herself with little complaint.   She is also a big talker.  Henry is a mover and has started to creep/ crawl.
