Finally an Update!

Sorry we went so long without an update, it has been a crazy couple of weeks! Two Saturdays ago, Craig spent the weekend setting up a play area in our backyard! He decided to fence off a corner of our yard for the girls to play in. The fence is not to keep the girls in, but to keep the dogs out! We did not want their toys to get "claimed" by the dogs! So after taking up the grass, laying weed fabric and lots and lots of mulch, we now have a fun place to play! There is a house, turtle sandbox, toddler slide and an 8-in1-playground! We found most of the toys used, but in good condition! Maisy has enjoyed playing on it, but it has rained so much she has not been able to get out there. As for Maddie, well she will have to be a little bigger to play out there!

Maddie went to see the doctor for her 4 month check-up! She is growing so fast! She weighs 14.6lbs now. She is in the 75th percentile straight across the board! She was introduced to solids last week and is enjoying her rice cereal! She just got an exersaucer and loves to play in it. We have a jumperoo upstairs in the loft and that I think is her favorite! She squeals at us more now and loves to be startled! It is funny! Maisy actually loves to be startled too, so we spend a lot of time in our house jumping out from behind stuff!

Maddie also is now old enough to start the nursery at church! She has been attending the nursery for 2 weeks now. She seems to enjoy it. I think she mostly sleeps, but that just shows me she is content in her class. Her teacher is Angela, she was Maisy's teacher when she was a baby and we just love her! The first Sunday we took Maddie to her class Maisy was sad and wanted to go in with her sister! Very cute! Maisy enjoys her class too! For the past 2 Sundays when we drive up to church she says "Thank you for my church"!

Here Maisy was eating her breakfast and her crazy bed-head made me laugh!

Maddie waiting to try cereal! She is a pro at eating!
