So much to share...so little time! I've been ignoring the blog, so it's time to get back on track! Where do I begin? Since the last post, we've celebrated the 6th and 7th month milestones for the little ones, and we've even added a couple monkeys into the mix!
Our biggest celebration from the last couple of months....Brylee and Ellison turned 6 months old on September 27th! Mom is always looking for an excuse to eat sweets. Devyn and I may have helped them eat their cupcakes!
Happy 1/2 Birthday!!!

Flashback: Kinley & Devyn, 1/2 Birthday
December 17, 2013
Ellie is the chunkier baby....can you guess who is who?
Ellie: 15 lbs, 13 oz, 26 inches
Brylee: 13 lbs, 8.5 oz, 25 inches
Overall, the girls are doing great! Brylee had some bloodwork done which determined her iron levels are too low, so she's taking iron drops for that. Ellie needs to have her head shape checked to make sure it's not too flat...otherwise she'll need to wear a helmet to reshape it. In true Marshmallow fashion....there's always SOME kind of followup appointment needed every time we visit the pediatrician, but overall...no major concerns. We'll take it!
Both girls are finally starting to enjoy solid foods. As you can see...Ellie is quite the eater:-) Brylee is a bit pickier. They like Mom's homemade oatmeal with fruit the most.
We love these onesies from ZTA sister, Aimee!
(Just for the record.....there is NOTHING free about the second one. NOTHING!)
Auntie Nichole sent the girls these adorable Big Sis and Lil' Sis shirts. Now, if we can just get them to sit still and look at the camera at the same time....
Just like a teenager...give her a cell phone and she'll be content for the moment.
Kinley is disgusted by Devyn's behavior!
Auntie Kim came to visit us in October! I think we kept her pretty busy between doctor appointments and diaper changes! Devyn still looks at her picture and says, "Keeem!"
She has her arms full!
We took the girls to a splash pad one afternoon!
And just like that...another month has passed. Seven months old already!

The big finale of the month....Halloween! We spent two evenings at a local Halloween festival at the Springs Preserve last weekend, made a trip to a local pumpkin patch, then of course went trick-or-treating on Halloween night, and finished off the festivities carving pumpkins.
Kinley loved the big slide!
Brylee is ready for the big night!
Devyn was ready to GO! She heard the word "walk" and wanted nothing to do with photos.
No one likes their costume...
We hate Halloween!
Devyn leading the way!
Kinley prefers to observe the mess, while Devyn jumps right in!
Who needs a pumpkin when you have newspaper to eat, and fight over!
Our disastrous attempt at Halloween photos.
(Mom and Dad were not supposed to be in the photo.)
The one and only successful photo:-)
This wasn't part of the plan...but it never is! This is our life:-)
