Update: Just took these three pictures today (Monday). I wanted to get a good one of them smiling but they just weren't feeling it.




I told a couple of grandparents that I would try to blog today. I know that they miss their grandbabies, so this is for you. I've been really busy this month, trying to go to the gym 4 nights a week and then I got sick this past week and haven't had much time to blog. I wanted to take some good 6 month pictures of the girls, but I haven't been able to yet so hopefully I'll get to this week. Anyway, here's a quick update and a few pictures.

The girls turned 6 months last week. I can't believe how fast time has flown by. Here are a few things that the girls have learned/done this month:

Bailey: 14 lbs 5 oz 25.25 inches
-Finally decided to take a binky.....hip hip hooray
- sleeps anywhere from 10-13 hours straight at night
- sits up while slouched over
- is extremely ticklish
- spits and makes funny noises with her mouth

Brynn: 14 lbs 2 oz 25.5 inches
- shakes her head like she's saying no
- was sleeping 10-12 hours but got sick and is currently waking up a couple of times a night.
- also extremely ticklish
- still HATES being on her tummy and is very picky about her food

Hannah has been doing so well lately too. Some days she has trouble being disobedient and I lose my patience with her quickly, but for the most part, she has been SUCH an awesome little girl. Right after the babies were born, she had a very hard time being obedient and wasn't sleeping well. She'd get out of her bed several times after we'd try to put her to bed and wake up at 6am, which wasn't typical for her. She rarely does these things anymore and she is such a good big sister. She often offers to help anyway she can and has even gotten good at helping clean up (well, a lot of the time). The other day I walked in her room, which was completely filled with Barbie parts. A little while later I went back in and she had put away all of her Barbies and their little accessories back in the right bins. Needless to say, I was extremely happy because getting her to clean up after herself has been a constant battle between her and me.











Man, I love my kids.

Aw, these kids are so cute. I was going to call you tonight. I started my own blog tonight and I have a bzillion questions. I want to know how you got your pictures small? Mine are gigantic and I really don't want them that big. Anyway, I'll try to get in touch soon. XXOO

Way to be going to the gym so often. That's awesome. You're kids are adorable! It's crazy to think 6 months have flown by, huh?

I love the pictures! Hannah has such big smiles and I love the little grin on Brynn's face. She knows she's being funny with those glasses on. Such sweet kids!

Oh, how adorable! They are all so gorgeous. Thank you, thank you. Hannah is looking like such a big girl now and she looks so happy.:) I miss them so much. What cuties.Looks like Bailey has blue eyes. What about Brynn?

All three girls are just beautiful! I miss holding those sweet babes. Great job going to the gym. I've been working out too...now if I can get the food part down.

Wow, Bailey and Brynn look so much older all of the sudden. They are beautiful!

Can you pass some of that gym motivation my way? I'm in desperate need of a kick in the booty.

Such beautiful girls. I love the twins' purple outfit - so cute! Tomorrow (Saturday 2/6) there is a free kids clothing event at 715 S. Utah Ave. here in Provo. Starts at 11am. It's gently used kids clothes 0-14 yrs, if you're interested. You still qualify since Scott is still taking classes :) -Garin (on Sam's account)
