I can't believe it's almost August! Where has our summer gone? The girls have been busy playing, eating, traveling, shopping, attending doctor's appointments, swimming, and just generally driving Mom crazy:-)
The biggest changes in our house lately have come from meal times. The girls have finally become fans of table foods. What a mess! It takes me as long to clean up their messes, as it does for them to eat. Their current favorite is macaroni and cheese. Devyn has decided that she's so grown up, she doesn't ever want to eat from a spoon again.
They love veggies (most days)!
Devyn Marie is still our wild child! She is constantly moving. CONSTANTLY! It is amazing how quickly she can tear apart our living room. She rarely plays with toys, but rather takes them out, inspects them for a moment, throws them across the room, and then moves on to something else. Her favorite past times are: sneaking up the stairs when Mom and Dad don't close the baby gate properly, stealing her sister's toys, pushing her vehicles around the house, and bothering her sister. She is so close to walking...it won't be long!
I designated a couple shelves in my kitchen cabinet just for Devyn. This isn't exactly what I had in mind.
I think she needs a jungle gym...
Kinley Grace is our sweet little angel. She loves to roll around and investigate her surroundings. She loves books and will look at them, or try to eat them, for long periods of time. She continues to go to physical therapy twice a week to work on building her muscle strength, flexibility, and balance. She is getting better at sitting up, but standing and walking are pretty far off in her future. She absolutely loves TV, especially her baby channel. I already have to limit her viewing time each day. She loves to sing and will chew on anything in sight.
Sweet, silly Kinley! Apparently she never wears clothes!
Love those baby blues and her sweet smile!
Recently we took a road trip to Albuquerque to visit Grandma and Grandpa Marsh. We had so much fun! We squeezed in lots of great New Mexican food, shopping, swimming, visiting with friends, and even a trip to the zoo!

After the girls' birthday party, when I was looking at old NICU photos, I noticed some of the pics of the girl's bath tubs while they were in the hospital. Since we still have the tubs, I thought it would be fun to take a more current photo with the girls. All I can say is, "Wow!"

Can't believe how far these girls have come!
