Happy Flag Day!

My mom made these outfits for the girls. You can't see it but they have cute little bloomers too. I love this picture- I swear Claire knows she's cute when she's wearing her piggies. Such a ham!
Speaking of hams...

Sometimes I just can't get Claire to smile for the camera.
The girlies LOVE to swing on the swingset that my dad built for them. We go out there almost every day. I wish I had a picture of Claire swinging. I think she was sleeping when we took this one.
My husband is sexy. LOL He sometimes needs to do practice ruck marches to keep in shape for when he has to do real ones. Luckily (for me) he decided to take the girls with him one day. Which gave Mommy some peace and quiet. 
Claire has 4 teeth!
The girls were watching Baby Einstein like this the other day. Claire was just sitting there with her foot up on Amelia's back. Not sure what to think about that.
I am so proud of this! I was looking for a new stroller for the girls and I really wanted this one but at $250 plus shipping, well, I wasn't willing to pay that. Luckily I got this one on Ebay as a local pickup for $52! That is incredible! It is practically new- it has a couple of small scratches but its in great shape. I can't wait to use it with my girlies! Its a LOT easier to steer than our current stroller too!

9 months old (tomorrow)

I can't believe my babies are going to be 9 months old tomorrow. I am in awe of the many many ways they have changed in such a short time. For example:
  •  Amelia- she has ended her (sadly unrequited) love affair with the ceiling fan and moved on. Yes, she's fickle, but this time she has turned her attentions to the DVD player, with whom she has more in common. Namely, that they both spend their days 6 inches off the floor. 
  • Claire has 4 teeth now and she will bite you with them without you even asking. What a generous little soul! Also, 20 minutes is apparently a great afternoon nap. After a 30 minute morning nap. Who needs a break? Oh, mommy? Nah...
  • We all three have colds. So add that to the kid not napping and the mom not sleeping. We are very happy here.

Babies Babies Babies

Some pictures from Memorial Day weekend-

My friend Heather (the girls' "Aunt Heather") lives in Japan and sent us these kimonos

Amelia is always trying to make a getaway these days. She is crawling! Claire is totally content to stay put.
