Glamour Shots

Andy was playing in the ExerSaucer one day and allowed me to take lots of cute pics.

This is his "come hither" look.

This is his "look at me play" pose.

His "don't you wish you had cheeks like mine" look.

His "I love all this attention" look.

Abby didn't want to be left out, so she allowed me to get some pictures of her in the Bumbo. Joe had put Isaac's shorts on her head.

Isaac let me take some pictures of him this morning.


A few weekends ago, we visited Grammy Pat and Grandpa Joe for my birthday. Joe, Jason, Kevin, and the little boys went to watch a Nashville Sounds game while the Jenny, Joanna, Grammy, myself and the twins had girl time at Jenny's house.

We found that the boys has the same baseball shirt, so of course they had to match!

Here is Uncle Jason holding Andy. Andy only had one scare when Uncle Jason used his "deep voice". We have found that Andy is a bit of a scaredy-cat. Uncle Travis from next door scared him one day just by saying "boo"- and he didn't do it loudly or anything.

Here is Abby in her pretty French dress from Aunt Boo. The matching clips would not stay in her hair.

Here is Andy in his big boy outfit. Isaac wore the same outfit to church, but would not stay still for pictures.
Last, but not least, a really cute picture of Cousin Joshua. He loved playing with the babies!

Play time

Here are pictures of play time. This summer we don't do a whole heck of a lot. Miss Laura, the nanny, comes three times during the week to watch the kids so I can get work done around the house. We have had morning outings to the zoo, the park, the mall, and McDonalds (the playland). Aunt Kitty has to come with us, or we would never have enough room for everyone. Anyhoo- here are some pictures of us playing around.

I have found that laying a sheet on the floor for them to play on is the best idea ever! I just throw it in the wash every night and they play all day! (It was Grammy Pat's idea)

Abigail is the more inquisitive twin. She wants to get into everything! She will roll, crawl, reach, and squirm until she has what she wants. She goes all over the room and is most interested in Isaac's books and sippy cups, and anyone's toes and shoes.

Andrew is not as interested in testing his boundaries. He is satisfied with the toys on the blanket and only rolls when he sees that Abby is coming towards him. He is not as proficient at crawling as Abby yet, but he does notice how mobile she is and I can tell he is jealous.

He is very proficient at growing teeth; he now has 3 to Abby's 0.

Isaac loves to make the twins laugh. When they are in their bouncy seats or in the ExerSaucer, he will get right in their faces and laugh. They love it.

Here is Isaac being good for the camera. It doesn't happen often.
Here is Andy enjoying his carrots. There are no fun pictures of Abby eating because she would never allow herself to be photographed with food on her face. She is much too dignified.

Father's Day

By looking at the title, you can tell this is long in comming. I had the great idea that the men in my life should attend church in matching outfits. Joe grumbled the ENTIRE time, but I got my way. I think they are adorable! I borrowed an outfit from Aunt Kitty (Melissa) for Abigail.

This is not the best picture, but all three are looking at the camera. Aren't they adorable?!

Joe made fun of me because I had to make faces while taking pictures to keep the twins' attention. Abby's outfit has bumblebees and yellow pantaloons to match the boys.

Here is a happy Abby.

Here is a serious Andy.
It wouldn't be a good blog without artsy-fartsy pictures of the twins.
There would be more of Isaac, but once he has gotten his one shot, he is done. Joe had a good Father's Day. He got cards from the kids and myself, along with lots of kisses.
