Addie and Alex receive a gift

Yesterday, the twins received a gift from Grandma and Grandpa. This was the first time they actively assisted in opening a gift. It should be fun in just a couple of months with their birthday and Christmas.

You can see the video of them opening the gift here:

Thank you Grandma and Grandpa!

Alex is Off!!!!!!!!

Here is Alex off to the races!


Ready, Set, GO!!!!!!

Check us out!

Over the past week, Alex has really started standing and trying to let go!

Addie has been sitting on her own for longer periods of time. She is also pulling up on anything and everything just like Alex! Thanks to Oma for this much needed toy. Alex has been trying to push on things that just DO NOT MOVE! So, this is great! Stay tuned for a video..

How do I get this thing to move?

I think that I will just watch!

Addie says Bye Bye

Addie has been trying to say, "BYE BYE" for a few weeks now. It is so funny when she does it! She is even starting to wave and say it to other people now which is so cute! As you can see, Alex was content just chewing on the telephone!

Super Smiles

Finally! This morning, Addie and Alex were playing the play area and we were able to get some smiles! I was beginning to think that this was never going to happen.....
But, little did I know!
It is a constant battle around here to see which one gets to the phone first!
As you can see, we have more than one phone to choose from.
This morning, mommy and daddy walked in to get Addie up from her nap and she was standing in her bed. So, we lowered her bed to the lowest level now. In this picture, Alex was trying to pull on her legs to get her to fall down!
Cutest picture of all times!!!!!!!!! Don't you love it?

Fall Pictures

Happy FALL Y'all!!!!!!
Addie and Alex October 2008
Well, this was not the easiest photo shoot that we have had with the twins. But, we did manage to get a few good pictures! We had a hard time getting Addie and Alex to smile at the same time. But, here are a few that we liked!

10 Months Old!!!!!!!!

HAPPY 10 Month Old BIRTHDAY Addie and Alex
Can you believe that just about a year ago was my baby shower for Addelynn and Alexander?
It seems like it was just yesterday! So, I thought that I would share a few pictures from that special day! Only 2 more months to go until the big party!

As many of you know, I was on bedrest and was VERY lucky that I was even ALLOWED to attend my own baby shower.... It was cold outside and I could hardly get sock/shoes on as my feet were so swollen!

We are 10 months old now and such BIG KIDS!!!!!!!
We have some updates for this week!
Addie and Alex both now have 2 top teeth. So, they both have a total of 4 teeth. I guess that we should start getting out the tooth brush and tooth paste. Alex is continuing to pull up on EVERYTHING! He is starting to walk places by holding on. He loves to climb under the jumperoo and exersaucer. Addelynn is crawling like MAD! She is also just starting to pull up on things. She does not want big brother to out do her anymore! With it getting chilly here now, Alex is wearing 9-12 month sleepers and Addie is wearing 6-9. Can you believe it?

Funny Funny!

Here are some funny pictures of Alex from this week!
Now that my camera has working batteries, I will try and get some more.....
He also likes to go under the Jumperoo while Addelynn is jumping. Oops!

Addie and Alex Pick Pumpkins 2008

Welcome to the CIRCUS

No, there is not a circus in town this weekend. But, can you smell the elephants and cotton candy? No, not hear at our house either! However, if you would walk or look into our sunroom, you would feel like you are one of the ring leaders!!!!!
Thank you Oma for the new additons to our play yard! When Addie and Alex were awaken by the UPS man ringing our doorbell, we did not care, as we knew it was the wonderful gift!
Thanks Again!
Addie and Alex
P.S: To all of our blogging friends, this play yard will save your life as a parent. Should you be interested in learning more about the play yard, visit "One Step Ahead"
Where in the world is Addie? Yes, you are right! She is hiding under the Jumperoo!
I'm fine mommy, just looking for a place to play....
Alex says, no matter how big this play yard is, I will still pull up and learn to get out of here!
Dr. Kasper always said that twins will work together to figure things out. I guess one day they will find a way to help eachother out!
For now, Alex will try and pull Addie's ear! Awwww, I love my sister!

October is Here!!!!!!!

Welcome October
Whew! I can't believe how busy we have been here lately....
Seems like just yesterday that I updated the blog!
Taking pictures has even been getting harder. Now that Addelynn and Alexander are getting bigger and more mobile, we are finding ourselves with less free time! However, we promise to be better in weeks to come!
Here is some news about our week!
Addelynn and Alexander went to daycare for the first time for 2 days while mommy was going to try and go back to work. However, after Addie coming home after the 1st day with a double ear infection and the beginning of strep, and us looking at things, it was not going to be cost effective for me to go back to work! So, I am praying that I will be able to stay home with them for many years to come! Don't get me wrong, I think that interacting with other people and kids is a wonderful experience for children. However, I am not going to pay to go back to work... Addie and Alex are happy playing at home with all their toys!
Tomorrow we are getting new pieces to our play yard. You know the play yard that you have seen in so many pictures? Addie and Alex say thank you to Oma for getting us some extra pieces. We can't wait til the UPS truck arrives tomorrow! I think that our whole sunroom will be play yard soon! Yea!!!!!!
Alex is starting to stand up and also pulling up on everything!!!!!!!
He has really been moving all over the place. He loves to play in the play yard with Addie, but for some reason he likes to aggrivate her too. We always find him trying to climb on or over her and also tugging on her ear..... Of course, we think that it is funny, but try and re-direct him! His bed is on the lowest setting now as he stands up in bed now! Addelynn is getting stronger everyday! She has started sitting on her own for short periods of time and is eating like a champ.Her new thing is that she loves to go down for a nap and bedtime with a board book. Yes, I know that she cannot read, but it is never too early to start introducing them to books. Plus, considering that we have more books then our old hometown library, Addie and Alex will always have plenty to read! You name it, we have it! At the doctors office this week, Addie weighed 14 pounds 12 ounces and Alex weighed 19 pounds 4 ounces. They are getting soooo big.
Of course, we are proud of just about anything and everything that Addelynn and Alexander do. However, this week has been HUGE! With Alex standing and starting to walk when you hold his hands, we have made some big milestones. But, the biggest one is Addie is saying "ba bye" Yes, you can make it out!!!!!!!!!! We prompt her and then she says it and also waves. Sometimes she waves with one hand, but sometimes with two! That is ok!!!!!!!!!! We are so proud of both of them!
Ok, this has taken me way too long and I am sure that I am forgetting something!
I will do my best to update you more often as this was tiring!
Have a great weekend! Be sure to stay tuned for pictures from our upcoming trip to the Pumpkin Farm!
Alex has been feeding himself for a month or two now. Tonight he was so tired, but wanted to keep eating Cheerios. While mommy and daddy had dinner, he relaxed in the high chair. When we turned to look at him, we saw this!!!!!! Awwwwwww..........
Thanks to some very special friends for having lunch with us today!
Even though Addie and Alex's grandparents live 6-7 hours from here.
It is nice to know that they have adopted ones here in Huntsville!!!!!!
We hope to see you again soon!
I know, I know, it has been a very stressful week! Fever blisters are no fun!

Addelynn is getting to be such a big girl! I cannot believe how big she is getting! Yes, it is so hard to rememeber when she was so little, but she is growing up too fast! She also loves to sit in the high chair and eat cheerios with her brother! In this picture, she had just finished talking on the phone with old grandma. As you know, she is quite the phone talker, these days!
