9 Month Stats and progress

The boys had their 9mth check up last Friday. Once again my mom went with me to help with the post-shot meltdowns! Thanks mom!

They are growing very nicely..almost catching up with a full term 9mth baby. Carter weighed in at 20lbs 10oz and 29.5 inches both of which are in the 75th percentile. Cameron came in at 19lbs 7oz and 28.5 inches long also in the 50-75th percentile range. The doctor was really pleased with how well they are growing and developing. I felt like such a proud mama! haha!!

Cameron has finally joined in on the full on crawling this week. Carter is all over the darn place! I really need one of those big play gate things! And just last night Carter was trying to pull himself up on the couch which is not something I have noticed before. Then this morning he found his toy basket and got up on the knees and proceeded to pull out about 5 toys in addition to the ones that I had already gotten out. I foresee my stress level rising in the next few months!

Other than that not much else to report. I did have my first Mary Kay party and it was a huge success! Big thanks to everyone who attended:)

So now we are onto the big birthday countdown! T minus 3 months and counting until the wonder twins turn one! Holy cow!!!!

We have a crawler and another tooth!

Cameron finally got his first tooth in! I have to say.. I hope this is how teething will go for the rest of the teeth because you would not have known that they were "teething" so to speak! I guess they were a little fussier than normal but nothing too horrible!

And Carter is officially crawling. It's full on crawling which means my life just got a little more hectic. Cameron is still doing the 2 step fall to the stomach thing but as usual he is almost there! I see potential for a lot of problems when these two get older with competition and Carter always doing everything first..uh-oh!

On a side note...I have started my Mary Kay business finally! We have gone back and forth with the idea of me working for a while now. Then a part time job opportunity a few weeks ago got me thinking that I could do it part time. Well when you are paying for 2 in childcare at once we are looking at aprox. $1600 a month people! And even part time with a friend of mine would have still set us back about $400 a month and if you are only working part time hours on part time pay that too is sort of a wash in the money department. Soooooooo I felt like the Mary Kay thing would allow me to be my own boss and work on my time not someone else's! Plus I have been using the products on and off now for about 10 years! So if anyone is interested in some awesome skin care and color check out my website or give me a call!

Learning to Share...well almost

The other day I caught the boys playing together...and then it got interesting. The video is about 3 and a half minutes but it's well worth it to watch it all the way through!! And keep an eye on Cameron towards the end. He is such a stinker with that tongue

WOOOOOOHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOO!! WE ARE SO EXCITED!!! And what a game! My stomach was killing me during the entire game...I was so stressed out! I went to a party while Daryl stayed home with the boys. He wasn't really interested in staying up late on a work night and the boys go to bed at kick off time so he let me go out and enjoy!

Today was a gorgeous day here so my mom and I decided to hit Park Ave. for lunch and shopping. I also thought it would be a good chance for me to play with my camera some more. And also do some more editing in photo shop since I am trying to learn that as well. It is very tedious to say the least. If you would like to see the pics you can go to our shutterfly site. Here is the link....

We are heading up to Gainesville on Sunday for the Championship celebration in the Swamp (for those who don't know that is the stadium)! We are planning on taking the boys up and it will be their first time in the Swamp! How fun!!!

Happy New Year

It is amazing how fast last year went by. I am sure it has a lot to do with the fact that I gave birth to two babies and all but geese...where did the time go? What a great year it was!

Our new years eve was pretty mellow. My cousin Amanda had a small get together at her house which was lots of fun. The boys were asleep by 9pm so they missed the ball drop but I managed to stay up and was very proud of myself! Seeing as I am usually asleep by 9:30pm every night, I was fully expecting to be that person on the couch sitting up with my eyes closed!

I hope everyone had a fabulous NYE and here's to a prosperous 2009....I HOPE!!!!!!! haha!!
