Happy 1/2 year Birthday!

The boys are 6 months old today! Wowie!! I can not believe that I gave birth 6 months ago. Whats worse is I can't believe I still have 15lbs of "baby weight" on me. Can I still call it baby weight? I hope so. I started weight watchers this week. Here's hoping!!

But back to the boys.... they are getting so big and doing so many new things! Carter is all about his tummy and trying to crawl. He just strains so hard on the floor trying to move around on those knees...any day now! Cameron is slowly getting the rolling back and forth thing. You don't see him do it much, he is very stealth with it apparently, but you find him on his tummy after you have left him in his crib or on the mat on the floor. It's almost like he doesn't want us to know!

They are both eating lots of different foods now. They had peaches today for the first time and LOVED them! They are not fans of squash and honestly I can't blame them because it's very stinky so I imagine it tastes' like crap! They love carrots and green beans, not big on peas though (can't blame them on that one either).

We finally got another crib so they are now sleeping in thier own beds. The first night was rough. I think they missed each other.
Oh and I am fairly certain we have finally mastered sleeping through the night. They go down between 8 or 9pm and don't get up until about 6:30 or 7am! Which means I will never, ever sleep past 7am EVER AGAIN :( !! But it is better than thier old wake up time of 4;30am or 5am!

We go for our 6mth check up next week so I will have all of their stats for you! My mom is coming with me so that I don't have to console 2 babies after shots alone...not fun!!!

Link to Pro Pics

Ok the last link I posted did not work properly and I thought I had deleted the post but I messed that up too! Woopsie!
So lets try this one.....

Pumpkin Patch

We headed out to the pumpkin patch today to have some professional pics of the boys done. It was one of the prettiest days we have had around here in a while, perfect for outdoor pictures! I can't wait to see the proofs! As soon as I get them I will post the link on here so you can all see them. Don't be disappointed if you don't see any smiles because it is very difficult to get two 6mth olds to even look at you let alone smile when there is so much going on around them! I swear they never smiled in any picture... not one!!
We managed to take a couple of our own pics during our downtime while we were there. Oh and yes, we got our pumpkin too!

Tummy Time

As I got out of bed this morning I realized 2 things. One, Daryl had fallen asleep on the couch and slept out there all night and two, the boys had not waken up yet and it was 7am!! So I look at the monitor and there they were.... on their tummies!! Yes that's right, both of them!! Carter has been sleeping on his tummy for the last week or so, but Cameron was a total shock to me! So I guess he finally figured out the whole rolling over thing too. He just needed his little brother to show him how. And the tummy thing makes me a little uneasy, due to the fact that they drill in your head to put your babies on their backs to sleep. But at 2am when a baby has rolled over on his own, that's just where he is gonna stay. I asked around to some other moms who had this problem and their docs told them to just leave them on their tummies if they are sleeping!
It's also been really interesting to see how Carter learns new things on his own and Cameron is usually about a week behind him. As soon as Carter learns something new you can bet that Cameron isn't far behind!

Cameron and his adorable giggle

The boys are not big gigglers yet, but you get huge smiles and screams. So last night Daryl was playing with Cameron and gave us a taste of the sweet giggle!! Love it!

Brotherly Love

Sorry for the annoying narration... I need to stop doing that. This was too funny the other day.

Carter rolling over and over

Carter rolls from his back to his tummy

And no I did not have the video camera because I was not expecting it at all! He was throwing himself all over his playmat this morning! All of a sudden he rolls over. Now he is always rolling over from his tummy to his back but never from his back to his tummy on his own! Go CARTER!!!!

Going video crazy!

Sorry but I can't help myself. It's a new toy what can I say? On Sunday Daryl had Cameron giggling on his lap but as soon as I got the camera out.. yup, he stopped. It's still a cute video regardless. Carter even managed to get his feet on there!! You can see him in the background in his jumperoo.

My first attempt at video posting...God I hope this works.

So we got a "Flip" this weekend! For those who have not heard of it, it's a camcorder that is the size of a regular camera that holds up to an hour of recording. Pretty neat little gadget. Here is a video of the boys eating cereal. We have been putting it in their bottles but just over the last week we have been trying it with a spoon and they seem to be getting the hang of it. Today I mixed in some pees and they both were quite pleased.

Jumperoo and Football makes me tired

I was so thrilled to find the rainforest jumperoo at a garage sale yesterday....well let me rephrase that. I was thrilled that April found it at a garage sale yesterday. She got it for $15!! This thing retails for $90 brand new. It's in great shape and the boys are loving it as you can see from the picture. Cameron was all tuckered out after sitting in it and watching some Gator football yesterday. Thankfully this game had a better outcome than last weekend!
And not to worry, I didn't leave him in there to sleep. I was afraid he would have a crick in his neck!
