The Twins | 9 Months

Thursday, October 23, 2014

The Twins turned 10 months old last week. I can't believe they already hit double digits. My babies aren't so little anymore. Here is a recap of the 9th month of life!

This month we were lucky and had a checkup. Logan weighted in at 17lbs even and 26 inches long. Colton weighted in at 18.5 lbs. and 27 ½ inches long. Mommy’s little babies are growing big and strong. 
Nana and Papaw gave them their big Birthday present early so it could be used before winter. They love going everywhere in their little red wagon. So far we have taken it to the dog park with Oakley, to the Pumpkin Patch, and Eric once threatened to take it into the grocery store.  

Currently we are doing a lot of transitioning to real people food. They already eat basically the same meal as us for dinner. We are working on picking up food and putting it in our months. They definitely prefer our food over theirs.
They still have pretty much the same vocabulary- ‘Mama, Dada, Nana’, but they are associating those names with Eric, my mom, and me. If you hold a duck up, they both say ‘du du ducky’. Also, they say ‘Ya’ and say stuff that sounds like they are repeating us. 

Logan Danielle

She currently has 2 teeth, and is wearing 9-12 month clothes. Her shoe size is a 4. Her favorite pass time is standing on her head. All. The. Time. She is definitely her Momma’s girl and takes after her too! She’s a major sleepy head, and when she is ready for bed, she lets you know… quick! She is still sleeping through the night in her crib. Use to, she would wake up laughing and smiling. Well, she still does when she wakes up on her own. On weekdays, I have to wake her up more and more to get out of the house on time. She is not a happy camper. She has FINALLY started crawling. She can get up on her all fours, but prefers to ‘army crawl’ around. She is super quick and beats her brother most of the time. She has started standing more, and pulls up on things all the time. She LOVES tents. Skylar makes her forts all the time and she will just sit in them for hours.

Colton Gage

He currently has no teeth, but you can see the bottom ones under his gums. He’s wearing 12 month clothes, and his shoe size is a 5. He has perfected the pulling up and standing without support {that is until he realizes what he’s doing}. He’s still not sleeping in his crib, but he’s working on it. He’s getting better at sleeping alone and putting himself back to sleep without help. He screams LOUD… like a girl! He is obsessed with Callie {the kitty}. He followers her in circles between our living room and kitchen trying to pet her. She’s starting to come around to the idea of him now. haha! His favorite is sharing a bowl of cereal with Daddy

Weekend Recap | Pumpkin Patch

Monday, October 20, 2014

This weekend was a very good one!
We spent time laying around as a family and had our family fall pictures at one of our local pumpkin patches this weekend.
Saturday was extremely busy seeing how our pictures were that afternoon. I ran out to Arby's to grab us some lunch. My sweet Oakley tagged along. He's doing so much better with car rides.
He is now 4 months old. He's getting to be such a big sweet baby!
We made our way to the local Fruit and Berry Patch with lots screams and tantrums along with many prayers for sweet babies during picture time.
The Fruit and Berry Patch is about 5 minutes from our home and literally in my brother & sister-in-law's back door. Why we never utilize this amazing place is beyond me. The owners and operators were the sweetest, most kind people we could had ever met. My hubby was in heaven over all the choices of apples. We walked out of there with 9 different types of apples, 2 fried pies, and 2 homemade pumpkin doughnuts {Given to us to try by the sweet man} with only $9 out of our pockets. Did I mention it's FREE to get in?!?! We definitely have a new favorite place.
Back to the family pictures. We arranged a session with Knox Photography. This was our first time working with sweet Daisy and Leslie, but I definitely can tell you it won't be our last!!! They were amazing. Here are just a few to preview.
Our Family

Logan and Colton


We picked the best pumpkins in the patch!


Amazing, Right?
Sunday was our catch up day. We were supposed to be working around the house, but umm.. naps took priority.
Look at this precious baby snuggled up napping.

That is about all for now.
Until next time...

The first day of a new month, a blank slate. What a perfect time to start a blog. Secretly, I’ve wanted to do this FOREVER!! Time, fear, and lack of organization have stopped me.  Not to mention the small fact that I didn’t have a topic to write about. I’m horrible at organizing. I don’t have a craft or hobby. And I’m pretty positive you don’t want to hear me write about the same 5 recipes I cook each week. Finally, after months of thinking, and taking a deep look into the types of Blogs on my daily reads, I decided on My Family.
Eric and I are over our heads in chaos with our 8 year old and 9 month old boy/girl twins. Stay tuned to join us on our life adventure of raising our kiddos.
Welcome to Chaos and Applesauce!

Until Next time!
