Gosh where did the month of May go?? It's long gone I know that! We stayed super busy. We have started going to the pool. I don't let the girls get in yet because the water is still too cool. Mind you my 5 month olds are still in the 10 pound range. What does this mean? It means they don't have the body fat to maintain their body temperature and get cold very easily. Let's stay away from hypothermia :) They like putting their feet in though. Caden and Ashlyn are loving it though. We have also babysat Mylee quite a bit this month. I have kept her since she was 5 weeks old...she is 6 now! Ashlyn and Mylee did a lemonade stand this past weekend, and they made $8! Quite a few cars stopped by :) One of best friend, Ashley's little girl, Brooklyn turned one and we went to her party. Ashley made all the kids little "Yabba Gabba" onsies with their names on the front and logs on the bottoms! Super cute. There were 7 little girls there that were all born in 2008! Also Maddie and Abbie (especially) have found their feet. It is adorable. The girls are still doing good with the solids too. We are going to start fruits this week which I am sure they will like instead of peas, green beans, sweet potatoes, and carrots over and over. Here are some pictures too! :) Love to you all and hopefully I will get to post more often!

Today I took the girls to the Allen Public Library for their "Baby and Me" story time. My mom came too! :) She was excited to get away from her school (special ed middle school teacher) to have some baby time. Tina (another PAMOM, mom) came with her boy/girl twins Beckett and Preslee. They are only 2 1/2 weeks older than my girls, but as you can see much much bigger. Anyways...during the story time we sing lullabies, read books, listen to music, and do other baby related interaction stuff. The girls were alert the whole time, and smiled the whole time! I am sad because they won't start it back up again until August, but we can't wait!

My baby boy turned 4 years old on March 29th! We had a really nice and fun party for him at Chuck E Cheese. All of his family was there (minus the ones in New York) and lots of his little friends too :) Everyone had a blast! It was Spongebob themed. I laughed and joked with everyone that he will probably want a Spongebob party until he is 10. He got so many nice toys, and felt very special and loved on his birthday. Caden is growing up so fast, sometimes I miss my baby :( Happy Birthday Caden! You are so special to this family. You have a personality that is one of a kind and a smile worth a thousand words. You melt my heart each and every day. Mommy loves you!
I have started going to play dates with some of the moms and their kids from my PAMOM group. Mind you all of these moms have multiples as well, so there tends to be a lot of little ones. It's been nice for me to share stories, problems, and encouragement with other moms that have multiples. Not to mention it gets me out of the house with the girls. We are going tomorrow to the Allen Public Library for "baby n me" story time. I am excited and will get pictures of that posted soon.
Jerald got a new job with Fannin County Sheriffs Department. He is a deputy out there. He is super excited to have his dream back of being an officer. It's taking a lot of adjusting to with the long hours, working every other weekend, and being an hour away, but we are adjusting best we can. Thank God the girls sleep all night though :) We went to a fish fry out in the middle of no where with his co-workers, and at first I was thinking to myself "where in the heck am I?" But there was a sand volleyball court and Coors light, so I ended up having a blast. Everything was fun about that until I got nailed in the ankle with a horseshoe! OUCH! I met sheriff of Fannin Country and Jeralds other co-workers and thier families. They all seem to be really nice people! Congrats Jerald...we are so proud of you!

Well I finally got to the store and got them some cute hair bows. Laugh at me if you want...but they were $25! You better believe they will be taken care of. Things have been pretty good around here lately. Caden is still adjusting very well to being a big brother. Now that the girls are six weeks old we can get out of the house every once in a while. We went to Stonebriar and Caden got to ride the carousel and play in the play area for a while. It was really nice to be able to get him and and do some fun stuff with him because I haven't been able to since November! Also, our good friends, Brian and Kim had their little girl Morgan Leigh Hamric on Wednesday. She weighed in at 7 lb 3 oz and was 19 inches long. She is super cute, and we are excited for all of our girls to grow up together. Jerald and I are going out to dinner tonight for Valentines Day. My mom is watching the kids, and we decided to go tonight so we don't have to fight the crowds tomorrow night on the "real" Valentines Day. Boring I know...Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and we will catch up again with you all next week.

The girls had their first photo shoot today. I found this really nice lady to do their pictures, and so far the few proofs she sent turned out wonderful. They did really well the first 30 minutes, but then they were both sick of pictures and they abruptly ended the picture taking. More specifically Madison halted the photo shoot :) They are still such a pleasure, and have fit really well into all aspects of our family. I am short on time, so hope you enjoy the pictures and I will blog more later.
