Kiddo Update

Wow, it's really been almost a month since my last post? I just can't seem to find time to get it's a quick update. No pictures now, but I will try soon.

Our blogging has been so pitiful that my mom actually sent me an email the other day to ask me what's going on with the kids. She wants to know what kinds of things they are doing, funny things Becca says, etc. Lee's response was this, "Tell her the babies are walking and that Becca's new favorite word is a four-letter 'F' word!" Then, for good measure, we thought we'd let her know that we found Becca behind the house smoking a cigarette last week.

We'll start with Becca:

She is doing really well at school. I talked to her teacher the other day; she's very impressed at how smart she is. Takes after her mother, I'm sure. She is doing great on identifying her letters when she sees them. She is also doing well on knowing her left and right. Becca is a great big sister, and she will tell you that....hahaha. She loves the babies and is a good helper at home. I am ready for warm weather so we can let her outside to burn off some energy. The child NEVER sits still. NEVER EVER. It's exhausting.

Evan and Carley are doing great, too. Lee is putting in their big car seats right now. I can't believe it! But they've outgrown the carriers, which means it's going to be a little more tricky taking them anywhere--we'll be using that stroller a lot more.

* Carley started rolling over last week. Evan hasn't quite gotten the hang of it, but he's trying.

* Evan is still sleeping every night in his swing, which is going to be a problem when he gets a little bigger. However, the little stinker has managed to weasel his way into our bed for the past 5 nights or so, during the middle of the night. I think he's a snuggler.

* They are both enjoying baby food, and neither has any teeth yet. Evan is actually starting to out-eat Carley, which we never expected!

* Carley has started a pitiful little fake cough when she wants attention. Very funny!

* Neither of them like to take turns. We feed them in the high chairs at the same time, taking turns with a bite. Evan cries every time it's Carley's turn for a bite.

We took them all to Walmart last week for the first time. Surprisingly, it went quite well. But we did get a lot of attention, as always, when out in public. Yes, they are twins. No, not identical. Yes, we have our hands full. Yes, we are blessed....yada, yada, yada. If Evan wasn't such a flirt with the ladies, maybe we wouldn't get so much attention? Nobody can resist that big 'ole grin of his. Especially his mama!


  1. I'll say, TP! ;-) Thanks for the update. Glad to know that Becca really wasn't out behind the shed smoking. She is too smart for that (and she doesn't have her own money or transportation to go buy them.) As for the sleeping arrangement, just throw all the mattresses in that big floor and all sleep together. Seriously, you may want to try putting them back together in the same crib again. Maybe they'll cuddle together so you can get some good rest. Love your updates!

    Love to all...
