Drum Roll Please.......

Our babies are growing and learning so many new things. Evan will be 9 months old soon and Eden just turning 3 months old. Can't believe they can be that old....sure does go by way to fast!

We had a big weekend here... On Saturday night Eden sleep for 8 hours straight! YAY! This is super exciting to Mommy!

On Sunday, Evan got his second haircut. His hair grows super fast and it is getting very thick! His Daddy cuts his hair and does a SUPER job! Eric is very gentle with a very wiggly boy while getting his haircut.

Also, on Sunday, Evan said, "Bye Bye" for the first time. He has been waving for a couple of weeks now but added the words with the wave on Sunday. Nana and I were in their living room and she was waving at him...he started waving at her and said, "Bye Bye" just clear as can be. We both looked at each other and said, "Did he say Bye Bye?" Then Nana said, "Evan say Bye Bye." And he said it again! We were so excited that we picked him and Sissy up and ran outside to see Daddy and Grandaddy! We told them and they could not get him to say it again. He would just wave and smile! Silly Boy!

Also, my mom and I were in the grocery store with both of them yesterday and a lady stopped us to see how old the babies were. This is how the conversation went:

Grocery Lady: "How far apart are they?"
Grammie: "Five and a half months."
Grocery Lady: "Are they both hers?"
Grammie: "Yes Ma'am"
Grocery Lady looks very confused!
Grammie pauses for a minute then says, "God blessed us with him through adoption and then blessed us with her five and a half months later."
Grocery Lady: "On that is wonderful! Honey, you have to come and here this! These babies are five and a half months aparts and they are both hers!"

We get this a lot when were are out somewhere. Sometimes I just say they are five and a half months apart and walk on. That is my favorite thing because they usually look super confused. It's funny to make them wonder!

When is Duck Season?

Duck season will not open for a few more months but I am already getting the kiddos ready for it. If you know Eric very well you know that he LOVES to duck hunt. He could Duck hunt every day of season and not be happier. He is super excited about Evan getting to go a few times during this upcoming season. So, for Father's Day I took some pictures of the kids in their hunting clothes for a Father's day surprise....but Eric saw them! Now, he does not know what the finished project looks like, so at least I have kept that a secret.

The day I took the pictures Eden was very sleepy so I did not get near as many pictures of her but Evan was having fun getting ready for duck season!

Also, thanks to Aunt Steph and Uncle Rick both of the kids have some super cute Carhartt overalls. As you can see, Evan looks very handsome in him and sis will look super cute when she can wear hers in a few months.

2 month SHOTS!

We can't believe that Eden is 2 1/2 months old. She is growing so fast and learning so many new things. Yesterday, my mom and I took her to get her 2 month shots. I know they need them but I just hate when my babies have to get those things. The shots never bothered Evan to much but Eden has had a rough time. Since she got the shots she has had a fever and not felt well at all. Her fever is down some this morning and she seems to be on the mend. We are very happy she is getting better because it is no fun to see your baby feel bad!

She did get a GREAT check-up. She weights 13.12 oz. and is 22.25 in. long. The doctor said she is in the 90th percentile. So, her daddy's name for her fits her well....his little Plump Muffin!

I already don't like to see how much I weigh.

Waiting for the doctor...I was super happy at this point!

Ouch! These things do not feel good!

Mommy makes me all better.

Fun in the Sun!

This weekend Evan and Eden went swimming for the first time at Nana and Grandaddy's house. We knew Evan would love swimming because he loves the water. He was laughing from the minute we put him in. He is going to be a little fish! Eden was not very fond of the water at first but after her daddy got in the water with her she was much better. We can't wait to spend lots of time in the pool this summer!

Mom, I don't think I like this!

Don't you think I am a cool dude!

I love splashing in the water.

I am much happier with Dad, Sorry Mom!
