Another beautiful day

I am in the car waiting on Emily and her Daddy to do some shopping on a beautiful day in downtown Aiken. Caitlyn decided this would be a good time to nap :)

So here is an update on some phone pictures....

Typical day with my silly girls

Love that goofball!

And I found these water beads at the dollar tree. They are so cool and usually used in vases to keep flowers hydrated but we are going to use them to learn textures....and basically play with them. (thanks playathomemom)

Emily also painted her first water color today.

Water. Paint. Paper.

And tonight we are attending our first couples shower. My best friend Lindsey is the host and we made the diaper cake together.

We added a Carolina teddy bear up top after I took this. It's too cute! I hope Conners Mommy likes it. :)

78 degrees in February

Today was so warm!

We wore summer clothes.

Sunbathed inside with the window open.

And played outside at night.

It was still 75! Love it!

5 months old!

This isn't the official "5 months" post....just a post that lands on a 5 month birthday.

"Oh, what's that? You left me on my belly?"
 "Yes I roll over now silly!"  Caitlyn has also been sleeping through the night the past 4 nights.  GO CAITLYN!! I guess what they say about cereal making babies sleep better is true about some babies :) Didn't work with Emily.
 Emily has really been enjoying her toys and playing like a big girl.
 We finally got the mail and she was super excited to get some Valentines day cards.
Now that we've got her playroom basics down we can start to get creative.  Found this little activity on Pinterest.  Love that site!

Keep on Rollin


Oh! When you put me down I was on my belly?

Well I'm a big girl now silly!

New play area

I've been reading this lady's blog...the playathomemom...and have been totally envious of her playroom. We have a similar room in our house and today we started the transition from guest room to play room. Yes!
So first are her pictures with the blue walls and second are our pictures. Pretty good I think for one day! And Emily loves it!

Caitlyns First Cereal and Girls Weekend

James went to Florida with his Dad last weekend, so that left us girls at home for a girls weekend!
My poor babies didn't feel good.  Emily was never sick until she was almost two so I knew what to do for Caitlyn, but I didn't really know how to handle it.  Po baby.  She was still happy though! 

She saw another baby in a bouncer on Facebook and said, "Mommy, I must have this!"  So we placed our order and in it came (thanks to a target visit from Grammy).
She is still warming up to it but it's definitely gonna be a hit. 

Emily got all dressed up in her Valentines day outfit and went to play and pray.  She made some sweet crafts and had a good time!
Caitlyn and I stayed home and spent some time with the humidifier.  (I promise she really wasn't that upset in this picture.)
See? All better!
After play and pray, Emily took a nap at Grammy's house.  In the floor.  She must have been pooped!
And later....Caitlyn ate cereal for the first time.  She loved!  She looked at me like, "Momma, now you know I been hungry.  Where's this stuff been!"

Full belly face
Empty bowl. The first time!
The next day, we went to "Welcome to Moes!" Emily likes to say it more than she likes to eat it.  She has not been eating much lately.
Then back home for more play time.  Caitlyn reached up and grabbed that monkey!  She's getting to be such a big girl!
Grammy came over and we made Emily some french fries and chicken nuggets.  She ate a little bit.  Again, not much on eating these days.

We had some good ole arts and crafts time too.  We had to make a picture for Grammy's valentine card.  I'm not sure if it's made it to her house yet or not...I was a little late mailing them :-/
Then Monday I had to go back to work....Grammy sent me this sweet picture of Emily sleeping.  She always puts her hand on the side of her face like a little angel.
And this picture of Caitlyn playing with the babydoll.  How grown does she look?  Goodness!
This is the last picture that Grammy sent me at work.  It makes being away from the girls so much easier knowing my girls are happy and well taken care of!

Four month appointment

Caitlyn had her 4 month appointment today and is growing like a weed!
Stats: She is in 95th percentile for height. Weighs 13.2 lbs (25-50th) and head is in the 50-75th percentile. Perfect growth :)
It seems like it took Emmy forever to get into this outfit.
Speaking of Emmy, she is spoiled rotten. But she sure can sport a cute ponytail!
I just found her asleep in her room the other day. She had made herself a little bed.
She has been saying the cutest things. We were watching father of the bride and James said, look they are getting married! And she spread her arms wide and said, "and they feeeeellll in looove!". She's a mess! She talks along with the whole chipmunks movie and sings and dances with the "fresh beat band". Freeze dance is too cute!
Here is what I will call Emily's "folk" interpretation of the Fresh Beat Band theme song...
And on a totally different note...Brian got matched at Emory in Atlanta so we will be seeing many more appearances by him at the 'ol! :) congratulations Uncle Brian!
