So the girls will be 9 months tomorrow! Lots of milestones this month. Both girls now have 3 new teeth. They broke their first tooth through on December 23rd and haven't slowed down. Emma has both bottom and a top left side tooth. Emma now has both bottom through and a top left. Teething has not been much fun with the girls. I hate comparing but Elizabeth was such an easy baby with just about everything. They are still crawling around on their belly, however Hannah the past couple of days has been getting up on all four rocking. She is also little miss climber now too! It started from a basket and now when she can get her hands above her she is pulling her self to her knees then her feet. Yesterday she pulled herself up on Elizabeth's art easel tray. Yikes, we all know what happens after this stage. Emma is not that far behind her. Both babies can sit up completely independently know as well. On a not such good note the girls both have another ear infection. This is Hannah's 3rd and Emma's 2nd. Poor babies:(

Happy New Year!

We celebrated New Years Eve with a playdate with the Jensen's. Even thought we didn't make it to midnight we all had a great time!

Cousins come to visit!

Cassidy and Cadence visited us for two nights. Elizabeth loves having them over! We went bowling on Wednesday and played in the snow when we got home. Thursday Catherine came over with her kids and we did a group picture with all my parents grandchildren. The girls also went outside to enjoy more falling snow and then came in for some hot chocolate. After that we made some yummy chocolate chip cookies. We met up with the girls Dad on New Years Eve.

Christmas Fun!

We had Christmas at our house a day early so we could be at our home with the girls. We then went up to Ellsworth for Christmas Eve Mass. After church we gathered at the Grindles home. Christmas morning we were at Nanny and Grampys with Tim, Amanda, Noah and Travis. Later that afternoon we spent more time with family. It was a wonderful Christmas with the girls, family, and friends!

8 Months old and each got a new tooth!

Tuesday, December 23rd
The girls are 8 months old. Both are sitting up on their own without any support and today they both got their first tooth. Emma was her bottom right and Hannah was her bottom left. Emma and Hannah are still pulling themselves around but not up on all fours crawling yet. Emma was a little bit slower to get the hang of it but has it now.

We went to the doctors on Monday because they have both had been sick with a cough, fever and not eating very much. Emma who has been the least fussy has an ear infection in her left ear. Poor baby:(
