EKH & OCH Week 42

Dear Emma Kate and Olivia,

Another great week of summer! Mommy LOVES being home with you two!! 

Sweet girls going for a drive!! 

Cee stayed the week with us! And Dall came over a lot to play too! :)

I love drinking my morning coffee and looking at you sweet girls! 

Owie, you LOVE to stand up in your crib!! This you one night this week when Mommy was feeding EK! 


We've played in the kiddie pool a lot this week! 

And eaten a lot of watermelon!

Our friends stopped for a quick visit! We love that we both have older boys and younger TWIN girls! :) 

Owie, right before Mommy took this picture you had taken EK's bottle out of her hands! 

We went to the Splash Pad with the W's! So fun!

Then later that day our good friends came for a play date! You girls LOVED watching A and TJH play and you thought E is SOOO cute! :) 

Mommy started potty training TJH so Daddy and Cee were in charge of your bath cute! Sink Baths!! 

We are going to have to lower your crib even more Olivia Cay! 

You girls LOVE your Cee! She played and helped with you girls a lot this week! 

We spent a lot of time at home this weekend because we started potty training your big brother. And you girls didn't like the fact that Mommy had to be with TJH every moment for 3 days! (3 day potty training method)

So Mommy spent every moment I could with you two! :) 

Olivia you LOVE to take apart TJH's train tracks! :) 

But you also love to play babies with your big brother too!

O, you have mastered pulling up this week! And you LOVE to do it! You thought Mommy and Daddy had put the computer on the fire place just for you to pull up on to watch church on Sunday. ;)

Sunday we watched church from home. 

You girls tried your new pouches! They are great because we can put whatever in them and they are reusable! 

Dall came over to play and took these pictures because all three of you were on Mommy at once! :) 

You girls ended the week with a long bath...which you two love! EK, you LOVE to kick! O, you even tried to pull up on in the bath tub! 

Goodness, you girls are so much fun! We love being your parents and love spending every minute with you two!

BFF time!

I got away for a little over 24 hours this past weekend and it was great! My bff C invited me to her families lake house. It was just the two of us and it was perfect! We both are so busy and talk everyday through texts...but don't have time to just sit and talk and catch up. Well, we had all day Sunday laying out on the dock to catch up! It was perfect! We laughed A LOT! Both of wonderful husbands kept the kiddos so we could get away. 

We enjoyed the sun, margaritas, yummy(not healthy) food and relaxing! We were planning on laying out on Monday too, but when we woke up it was super overcast. We waited a little bit to see if it was going to clear up but it didn't. So, we headed home earlier then we had planned on but it was still a great time!

We decided that this will be a yearly thing from now on! :)

EKH & OCH Week 41

Dear Emma Kate and Olivia,

What a fun week we had! This whole week was spent at home, but you girls love being home so it was great!

You girls love when TJH gets in halls bed and plays with you two after naps! And Mommy gets laundry folded! :) 

You girls love watching Tucker play with his trains...and you two love to eat the trains too! 

Tucker was showing you how the ducky works! 

While we were on vacation Aunt Dall moved into town! You girls love having her so close now! :) 

You girls still love to jump! 

Tucker and Mommy went to the library and he picked out some books for you girls to read too! 

Tucker is now sleeping in a big boy bed and you girls think it's pretty cool! 

You girls had your 9 month well visit. Y'all were playing with each others feet while we waited! 

Emma Kate: 19 lbs 13.8oz 28 inches long
Olivia: 19lbs 4.6oz 27 3/4 inches long

EK, you give the funniest looks! :) 

EK, you also started to clap this week! It's really cute! 

Olivia, you got your first real boo boo this week. :( You are starting to pull up on things and you pulled up on the fire place and then fell. You scraped your nose pretty bad. But you only cried for a few minutes. You're a tough girl!

Emma Kate, you got TWO teeth this week!!! And when we went for your well-visit the day before you bottom two teeth came in, the doc said you have 6 teeth that are ready to come in! 

Both of you girls started to sign "more" this week! :) We are working on "more" "eat" and "all done".

Owie took this photo of you with Daddy's help! :) 

Owie selfies!

Friday we went to the local Splash Pad! M went with us! EK, you LOVED every minute of the Splash Pad!! Olivia, you liked it for a few minutes but you wanted Mommy to hold you and you also got pretty tired while we were there. 

Snack time! :) 

Saturday morning started out so sweet! Owie, you were trying to wake your sister up to play! :) Daddy is going to lower your crib ASAP! 

Then we headed out to the Farmers Market! 

You girls showed Aunt Dall how great the market is! It was her first time going! :) 

Such a big girl! You are so proud of yourself for pulling up!

Ruffle butts! 

Getting the last drop! 

EK, you are getting so much better about Olivia getting in your personal space! :) 

Sunday morning Mommy went out of town for a night and Daddy kept all three of you kiddos! He said you girls were so good! When I asked if you girls missed me he did say you girls were saying mama! :)

What a great week back at home with you two sweet girls! You're both starting to do so much more and communicate more with us! We love how different you two are. It's so much fun seeing how you two react to things and how you are starting to play more together!

We love you so very much!
