16 months and 3 days

I had planned to write this Monday on their 16 month birthday, but got distracted. So, the girls are 16 months old. Can't beleive I say this every month that goes by. The things they do are reminding me less and less that they are babies and more and more that they are toddlers. Their language has increased and Maddison has begun to say 2 word phrases like "Hi Sissy" or "Hi Dada" and loves to say "bye bye" and wave. On top of her speaking, Cameryn is doing a lot of sign language which always helps the communication process. Lots of running, climbing, kicking and throwing balls. The all time favorite activity is still probably reading/books. Also something that has come with toddlerhood is the hitting. Maddison gets frustrated easily and often takes it out on Cameryn or whatever still object that is near. I always knew she would be our drama queen. So we do our best to correct and redirect. Here are a few pictures from Sunday at the Magic House. Enjoy the rest of the dog days of summer!

The official Switch

We have officially switched over to cloth diapers using BumGenius 3.0 One size diapers. My sister in law is giving me some Fuzzi Bunz to use too! Cameryn has been getting awful diaper rashes and we are looking to save money in the long run. We will save from now until they are potty trained about $1800 AND since they are one size diapers they have snaps that adjust from size small to medium to large. Even though this requires special laundering, I think it will be worth it. The next baby we have will essentially be free to diaper. Not to mention better for the environment! Anyways, I'm excited and hopeful.

Everyone is doing great.

Are there some Days you Just feel like This?

My girls are Climbers!

After returning from the restroom, this is what I found! They love to climb everything. Cameryn Grace is going around meowing like our cat (Ronnie, she is back) She stays mostly in the basement because of allergies and she's old and unsure of the babies. Also, I have been searching and searching for a place that offers the MMR vaccine as separate doses. I am excited to have found an office who does offer them separated. Our pediatrician says they are find with them getting vaccinations elsewhere. They will get it in September when they are 18 months and will go back every 4 weeks until the series is completed. I feel a little better about this idea than all 3 in one day.

Look at all this curly hair. Cameryn is waiting for the kitty to say hello.

A Funny Story To Share

I have a funny story to share with all of you. Last night, Jeff and I ate Dairy Queen for dinner. Maddison had been "eyeing" Jeff's big Coke. They are not allowed to have know me! About 15 minutes after we were done eating, Jeff and I were in the living room discussing plans for tonight...(it's our 8 YEAR anniversary ;) ). We decide it's too quiet and Jeff goes in the kitchen to investigate. ... Maddison is on the kitchen table and Cameryn is standing on the kitchen chair taking turns drinking the COKE!!! Maddison looks up ..surprised yet guilty and continues to hurry to take another drink before Jeff takes it away. It was TOO funny! Too bad we didn't get a photo of it! But here are a few from today wearing their POOP DECK rompers that Grandma got while she was on vacation.

4th of July Spactacular!

This 4th of July we spent the holiday with friends. Maddison and Cameryn had lots of little kids their age to play with. We couldn't have asked for better weather, only more nap time. They did pretty good considering they only had one nap and Maddison's nap only lasted 40 minutes compared to 2 hours. Jeff enjoyed playing in the washer tournament while I and others chased after the girls. They really had a good time playing and were worn out by the time we left. We put them to bed and Jeff and I sat outside and watched the fireworks from our backyard. Jeff says we will be going on vacation
soon although we don't know where yet. Today, we went to grandmas to celebrate her birthday. They twins enjoyed their first ice cream cone. They were all smiles! Enjoy the pics! We hope you had a great and safe holiday.

That's right! I have two very cranky little girls who are getting multiple molars in right now. I keep praying for patience and understanding as we go through each day. It's been tough on all of us! I feel very bad for them. I have given them Tylenol, teethers, cold wash clothes. Does anyone know how long pain with molars typically lasts for?
