Family pictures

Our awesome friend Laura took our family pictures about 2 weeks ago.  It was super windy and it rained on us a little bit.  Add in the fact that Jacob doesn't like to be too close to his brothers and he definitely doesn't like them to touch him, taking our family pictures was certainly not easy.  All I can say is that Laura is amazing.  If you ever need a photographer in the Katy area, Gilgen Photography is the place to go.

7 month old babies

Twins at 7 months old

**I am super late posting about the babies being 7 months old.  Justin and I spent the week after they hit the 7 month mark getting ready to go out of town and then when we got back the laptop crashed AND I was super busy getting ready to host my bunco group.  Now I'm going to have a really hard time remembering what happened between 6 and 7 months vs what has happened since. **

About a week or so after they were 6 months old, Joel finally figured it out and started crawling!  He started out slow at first, but he can sneak up on you super fast now.  Right after Joel figured out the whole crawling thing, Jeremy realized he didn't want to be left behind and he started army crawling.  It really takes me back to Jacob army crawling around the house when he was a baby.

We have had ups and downs with eating.  First Joel seemed like he was a great eater, Jeremy not so much.  Then Jeremy was the rock-star eater for about a week while Joel mainly cried when I tried to feed them.  Then neither would eat very well.  Trying to feed babies is definitely my least favorite times of the day.  And since the babies don't eat well at all when one person tries to feed them both at the same time, I spend a lot of time trying to feed babies.

Happy babies

First injury to one of the babies, luckily no stitches needed

All 3 kids were originally playing with this xylophone, but Jacob moved as soon as I got the camera out

Lots to blog about, where is the time?

I'm sad that I haven't been blogging, but with 3 kids under 3 my life is usually crazy.  I do have things to blog about.  I hope to do a write up about the twins being 7 months old, especially since they will be 8 months old on Sunday.  I have been wanting to do an update on Jacob.  Justin and I went on a trip - all things blog worthy.  Now that my laptop is working again, hopefully posts will start magically appearing on the blog in the next week.  Now to get back to filling out these forms that have to be filled out by 9am tomorrow.
