Snow 2014

Tuesday brought snow for us! WHOOP! The Mr. and I left 1/2 day for work and headed home.

It was so pretty falling so fast on Tuesday afternoon. It snowed all afternoon and night. We enjoyed playing in the snow, cooking a yummy dinner with our neighbors and Aunt B and watching a movie!

Tucker loved being outside in the snow. He didn't like touching it. But he did enjoy sledding! So glad he was able to enjoy his very first snow! This was the girls first snow too but we kept them inside and warm! 

M played with us in the snow! :) As a Florida girl, she isn't used to all of this! ha! 

We didn't have school on Wednesday so we did a lot of resting, eating and playing in the snow again!

We brought in some snow for Tucker to eat and play with! :)

We went in 2 hours later on Thursday. It was a fun little snow break!

But, I know it wasn't so much fun for many of my friends and tons of people in ATL. Still praying for all of these people.

First Foods

The girls started a little bit of rice cereal on Saturday. They did great the first day. But the second day it upset their tummies. We are going to wait a little longer to try it again. :)

No silly faces like their big brother did! ha! :)

The end of January is filled with many birthdays! :)

Two of my very best friends celebrate birthdays back to back days. The Mr.'s dad and my dad celebrate in the same week too!

We were able to celebrate J and my Dad's birthdays this week!

We went to a surprise dinner for J on Saturday night (her actual birthday) that her husband planned. It was super fun! T got a picture of all four of us on their camera and I will post it as soon as I get it. But there is me and the Mr. :)

Monday was my Dad's actual birthday and he came to see us!

Happy Birthday to all the special people in our lives that have January birthdays!

EKH & OCH Week 21

Dear Emma Kate and Olivia Cay,

The week started out so great! Mommy and Daddy were both off of school. We went the park and did a mini hike! You girls LOVED being outside on the warm day in January. Olivia you hiked with Mommy and EK you hiked with Daddy. Both of you loved it and loved looking around. Livi you fell asleep about half way through. EK you fell asleep as soon as we got int he car to go home. 

Aunt Cee came back for another week of keeping you girls while Mommy and Daddy were at work.

EK you love blowing's precious! Olivia, you keep watching Mommy's lips and try to do the same's cute to see you thinking so hard. :)

Tucker now says "Emma Kate" and says "Livi" for yalls names! It's so cute!

Thursday was exactly a year ago since we found out we were pregnant! We wouldn't know for another month there were two of you! :)

Aunt Cee took this picture. :)

Friday, you girls went for your "4 month well-check" even though you are almost 5 months old.
Emma Kate weighted in at: 13lbs 7oz 23.5inches
Olivia you weighted in at: 15lbs  4oz 24.5inches
EK you are in the 30%tile for your weight and Olivia you are in the 60%tile for your weight.
Dr. G was very happy with both of you! And EK, great X-rays of your hips! Since you were breech they said we might have to do X-rays at 4 months...but your hips are perfect!!
And you girls each got 2 shots and were SO brave!! Mommy was alone at the apportionment and you girls did great!

Saturday we played and you girls tried rice cereal for the first time! It was so cute and we didn't get any crazy faces out of the two of you! :)

EK the shirt you have on is a special one! Mommy and Daddy bought this shirt about 2 years before we had any children...we loved that it said "Little Ham" perfect to go along with our last name. Tucker wore it too! ;)

EK you loved helping Mommy unload the dishwasher!

Sunday we didn't go to church because Mommy and Daddy have head colds but we played at home and got ready for Aunt B to arrive! :)

You girls tried the exerciser for the first time too and you both seemed to enjoy it! We had to put a pillow under your feed because yall can't reach yet. Tucker LOVED playing with yall in it...he was great at showing you girls how all the toys worked! :)

We think the rice cereal bothered you Sunday evening. It took both of you a while to get to sleep and your tummys seemed to be bothering you. We will give it a couple more tries and it it continues to bother you we will change cereals.

What a big week! You girls are just growing too fast and I pray everyday that time will slow down!

We love you!
love, Mommy
