1st Birthday Bash!!!!

It's been an amazing first year and it's so hard to believe that the girls are one already. The birthday party was so much fun! We had tons of friends over, the girls were so happy that day of the party, and we really enjoyed having family here with us this past week.

Emma took 3 steps at the birthday party and Ava took 3 or so steps the other day. They are walking along all the furniture and anything else they can pull up on to get started. We are just waiting for that day to come where they take off walking. I'm not sure if we are ready for it or not but it's coming real soon. They are saying all kinds of things uch as Momma, Dada, Bob (our dog), bye-bye, hi, baby, happy, Nana and Rick thinks he got them to finally say Papa.

Rick, Colleen and Stacy were here for the party from Ohio. We made a trip to Uncle Julios for dinner (like thats something new, LOL!). They love that restaurant, we'll we all do! YUMMY!! YUMMY!! Stacy did a small photo shoot with us at the park and Collen went with me to the girls 1yr check up. Here's the report from the 1yr check up below:

Emma Jean
Weight - 20lbs 5oz
Height - 29.3 inches
Head - 17.9 inches
Development: A+

Ava Marie
Weight - 20lbs 3oz
Height - 29.0 inches
Head: 17.6 inches

I was really suprised to see Emma measuring taller than Ava for the first time! I had the nurse measure her twice because she's always been just a little bit shorter.

It's been tooooooo long!!!

For all you follwers of our blog, I'm so sorry!!! Life has been super busy around our house and hasn't seem to slow down. Here's whats been going on in the past couple of months:

Emma and Ava are 11+months old and we are getting ready to celebrate their first birthday. Wow, this first year has flown by so fast! Both girls are standing up, walking along the furniture, saying Momma, Daddy, bye-bye, and alot of stuff we can't understand. Emma said Nana for the first time last week. They are such happy babies and will be walking before you know it!They love green beans, strawberries, pears, and just about anything I put in front of them to eat.
