Love where I'm at.

Grace and Zoe sure are growing up! It's pretty amazing.

Grace has been half rolling over for a few weeks now. This morning, as I was getting ready for work, my Mom and I looked over and she had made it to her stomach! She still hadn't quite pulled her left arm out, but she had definitely rolled over! I received a text from my Mom that she did it again while I was at work. So amazing!

Just in the past week, we've noticed that they are reaching more deliberately for their toys. They focus on them, grasp them, and typically pull them toward their mouth! Zoe is all about pulling on toys from her activity mat. They also grab their stuffed animals and teething rings and are much better at getting them where they want them (again, typically the mouth)! It's so much fun to watch.

We all had a nice weekend. We took a family trip to Whole Foods on Saturday morning to search out some more dairy free options. I'm happy to state that we've found some good dairy free cinnamon rolls, yogurt, and ice cream... Oh and animal crackers and muffins! Also tried Daiya cheddar shreds last night on a chicken sandwich. The chicken was pretty spicy, so I'm not sure exactly how the cheese tasted, but that was probably for the best. Ha! So far I'm hanging in there, and we hope it has a positive effect on Zoe.

Sunday we took our first visit to my Mom's house. The girls were great in the car (about 50 minute ride). They were very excited to see Gram's house, which is very light and full of things to look at. They have their own room, which is lovely, and it was a great day. It was wonderful to be able to take a walk outside and in the woods. How I wish we had better walking options where we live! Mom's cats, especially Bobby, were fascinated by the girls.

On Thursday, Kate and I celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. She is such a great Mom to Grace and Zoe, and I'm so lucky to have her. I feel so blessed that we have these two beautiful daughters - it's what I've always dreamed of, and more.

  1. Thanks for commenting on my blog! Your babies are just precious. I got a little wistful looking at your pictures, remembering how sweet and cuddly babies are at that age. But I also remember how hard it can be having TWO babies that age--it's a trade off, fewer cuddles for more sleep. : )

    (Happy Anniversary, by the way! Hope you can sneak in a celebration dinner.)
