This year was the babies' first Halloween, so you know we had to dress them up - even though they were too young to actually go trick or treating. Graham was a monkey (of course) and Kennedy was a lady bug.
Lovin the banana
Lady Bug Kennedy
We stopped by a few houses in the neighborhood to show them off. : )
Dad even carved a very special pumpkin. Can you guess who this is?
Graham has gotten so much more mobile over the past few weeks. He is crawling with no problem - and he's getting fast. He is also wanting to get into things that he isn't supposed to, such as mommy and daddy's shoes or the dog's toys. We've found him a couple of times on the verge of grabbing a bone and putting it in his mouth. Copper and Casey need to learn how to pick up after themselves. : )
This week, he learned to pull himself up. This video doesn't do it justice. He can stand up for about 1-2 minutes at a time while holding onto that bouncy.
Kennedy isn't crawling yet, but she is good at rolling and pivoting on her stomach. It wont be long for her...
The babies are 7 months old. Kennedy has caught up with Graham in size, has 2 teeth and is rolling all over the place! She is a sweet girl and is usally Miss Patience. Graham is already crawling- he's a man on the move! He smiles all the time, and it seems like his tummy troubles are a thing of the past (knock on wood...) (Old pics - 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, 4 months, 5 months, and 6 months.)
When Heather was younger, it was a tradition to go to Rombach's Pumpkin Patch in Chesterfield Valley and pick out Halloween pumpkins. It was one of the best parts of Halloween! So this year, we've started a new tradition... taking OUR kids to Rombach's! They were fantastic and were along for the ride. It was a little chillier than forcasted, and it was pretty windy in the valley, but they didn't complain. (Hello, fall in St. Louis!) They let us pose them and take a million pictures. We promised them that next year they'd have even more fun because they could play on the fort and ride the ponies... But for now, we think they had fun just looking around.
Graham trying to eat the pumpkin- sorry buddy, not yet!
We are a happy little family that live in STL. We met, fell in love, and got married. Add twins to the mix and we have a happy, sometimes hectic family! And we are excited to celebrate the life that happens on the way.
