I have been super bad at keeping up with this blog but am trying to post at least once a month (an attainable goal I think). Due to that there are a lot of pictures and things to catch up on, it's amazing how much can happen in a month! The month of June was filled with trips to the pool, to Deanna Rose and the Zoo! These trips were large undertakings as I took all kiddos...and to think I use to think taking one kid was a lot of work!
The girls asleep at the pool, we swam for 1 1/2 hours and they never woke up... spent the whole time in their carseats! Dream babies I tell you!
Jack and Preston playing the cow bells at Deanna RoseJack has become quite the Lady's Man...here he is with Ms. Ellen Lund
Here Jack is with Ms. Ella at Village Fest on the 4th of July
A snack at the Zoo with Preston (don't they look like such big boys!)
Monkey See, Monkey Do
A visit to see baby Dane! Dane is only 3 weeks here and the girls are 2 months, this is going to be one tall boy!

Here is Kate with her bone-conducting hearing aid. She loves wearing it and brightens up when we put it on her. She is developing at an astonishing speed and is babbling, grinning all the time and rolling over. She has such a loving nature and loves to be kissed on and talked to all the time. Infant and Toddler services came over today to evaluate the girls and Kate is actually hitting the milestones for 4 month olds! She absolutely amazed the therapists.
Mallory did very well with the evaluation as well but is definitely a little behind her sister. She is babbling and although she has not smiled yet I know she is so close! There are some concerns with her vision but we are going to see if she progresses over the next 4-6 weeks, as she is still having her milestone age adjusted to their due date, making them just over 2 months. Mallory has a very gentle nature and loves to be held. I can't wait until she gets her hearing aids (July 20th) and can hear everything. I am convinced this will speed up her development and she will catch up with Kate.
What a beauty!
Finally we have a family photo that includes all 5 of us thanks to Jack's school continually bugging us for one for Jack's Wall at school.
Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe holiday. We will keep you updated and the next post will be from our new house!
