Ready For Summer!

I get so excited about summer when the weather starts getting nice and warm... I think of the beach, flip-flops, pedicures, relaxing by the pool, outdoor dining, green grass, margaritas, open sunroofs and can't wait for it to be here. Given Houston summers, I know by June, the excitement will have worn off and I'll be irritated that I sweat off my self tanner in a day. BUT for now, I am looking forward to all the fun things that we will do with the babies.

We're Mobile!!!

Oh goodness... Life is changing. One day last week, all of the babies were laying around playing peacefully on their activity mats. Then the next day they were EVERYWHERE. They accomplish this by either rolling or dragging themselves, but even though there is no official crawling, they get to where they want to go and fast. Yikes! I have not even baby proofed yet. (Again, Ms. Procrastination!)

The babies crawl all over each other, tug on each other, look, smile and laugh at each other. The are so much fun to watch.

The babies all want to play on the floor now. They don't want to be contained...

Briellen was the first to venture out of our playroom. Her first stop was this funny little hole in the wall next to our pantry in the kitchen.

Briellen taking Mitchell to the funny little hole.

Ivy rolled under her Dads feet at the changing table.

Luke scoots backwards and gets really frustrated that he can't crawl forward.

Mitchell got stuck under chair in playroom.

Sidney was our first to sit up. She doesn't move around that much yet.

Briellen scared me one day by crawling behind this chair. I walked into the room and she was gone... ahhh.
