8 months and SICK!

The girls are 8 months old!!! We have had a horrible last two weeks. The first week of the stomach bug Kinley was so sick for over 4 days, I thought Madelyn just got a light case of it...I was wrong she waited till the next week!!! These pictures were taken during the two days between the girl's sickness! Poor Madelyn I thought she was better then Sunday we woke up to complete leakage of the diaper! It was horrible. She has lost weight just like her sister. I think they are around 13 pounds. Her face seems much less full and her pants don't fit!

Sorry for the lack of posting this week. I have been lucky to check email over the last couple weeks! They are super needy lately. Kinley is days (i think) from crawling..well at least her version of it. Baby proofing is needed quickly!!!! The girls have official Halloween costumes and have worn them once! We took no pictures so I guess you all have to wait!

Our very good friends (really more like family) welcomed their second little girl into the world tonight! They live far away so I sat on facebook all evening just waiting for updates and new pictures. Luckily I was on the VIP list and didn't have to wait for facebook updates.

The girls had a little message for their new best friend!

We are so happy for their new four person family! We love you guys and hope to see all of you soon!

The Lake!

A few weekends ago we went to the lake for Mimi's (my mom's) birthday! We had lots of fun getting to celebrate with her, poppy and Uncle Andrew all weekend!

The girls are pretty messy eaters right now so we decided to feed them outside. Bananas are NOT Kinley's favorite thing! She pretty much refuses to eat them now.

Kinley watching the boats go by!
Madelyn had decided she would rather have Mimi hold her!
They get away with anything with Mimi!

Kinley likes the camera more than Bananas!

Sitting on the porch with Poppy after dinner

Enjoying a morning chat with Mimi on her birthday.

My parents took the girls to meet my Mom's long time friend who lives on the Lake,
while I stayed back and had a much needed break!

One of the perks of having my dad grill out!

The girls new favorite thing is to pull toys out of a bag.
Keeps them occupied for at least 10 minutes!

We had a wonderful time, and it was hard to come back. I enjoyed having extra hands for a few days too! Happy Birthday Mimi!

This weekend we still had a very sick little Kinley! Madelyn seemed to bounce back rather quickly but not her sister. She was having lots of yucky diapers and was refusing to eat pretty much all the time. She would just want to lay around all day. NOT HER AT ALL! I had called the pedi and they said if by Saturday it had not changed I was supposed to bring her in. It didn't. I had already thought she was feeling a little lighter too. She was about a pound and half lighter! She is doing a little better now. She even babbled a little this evening. Huge improvement. Today her daddy stayed home with her while Madelyn and I went to Church. I had not been out of the house in almost a week and was going to go CRAZY! We had church in the park today and it was a lovely day! Our church does this once a year and it is so much fun.

Madelyn loved being outside and watching the big kids play!
One of my very best friends who is pregnant went to the doctor last week and was diagnosed with preeclampsia. I was too when I was pregnant except that she is 38 weeks!!!! She is having a baby girl on Tuesday, we are so excited to have another girl friend coming! Actually I have two friends having baby girls this week. Kristen, and Celeste we are thinking and praying for you both!

Sick babies!

This week the twins have been sick! Kinley is much more sick than Madelyn but it has been a hard few days for both of them...and mama! I think these pictures speak for themselves. 

Madelyn holding her own bottle of pedialyte!

Kinley having a PJ kind of day!

Kinley is quite the Daddy's girl this week! 
Poor Baby does not do anything. Just lays there!
Madelyn feeling a little better than her sister!

Stupid stomach virus has kept us in all week and we are starting to get cabin fever! Have not even taken 8 month pictures yet because the girls don't feel good. 

Don't forget to leave a comment for our Giveaway! You have until next Wednesday at Midnight (central time)

What I have been up TUTU!

Some of you have asked where I get the tutu's from...some of my friends and I started making them while back. At first I was just making them for my girls and people around here but it has branched out a bit. We call our business The Painted Daisies! Of course my girls are models. I promise later in life they are going to scream when they see tulle! It has made for some cute and/or interesting pictures! I figured that since my girls spend some (a lot) of their time doing this I would post some pictures!

We thought we would give one away! If you are interested just go to our website and come back and tell me which one you like! It is that easy. The giveaway ends next wednesday Oct. 21. Which gives you plenty of time to get the tutu before Halloween! The winner will be picked at random. 

All that being said...We have made halloween tutus for lots of other kids but my kids don't know what they are going to be. Any suggestions???
