She is becoming such a BIG girl...

Well, it was time to take down Maisy's toddler bed and nursery decor, so she could have a BIG girl room! For those of you who had not seen her room it was Lavender with soft yellow stripes. It was such a sweet room but Maisy needed a room to match her colorful spirit! My good friend Amanda and her son Matthew came to help us and we could not have done it without them! Amanda and I painted the room pepto pink and even managed to save the striped wall that daddy had worked so hard on before she was born! It turned out very cute! It reminds me of a candy shop. Her crib turned into a toddler bed and now has become a full size bed. It looks really great! She has enjoyed it so much. I have too because now we can cuddle in her bed and read a book before bedtime. Here are some pictures...

I am also including pictures of Maddie's room. I finally moved her out of the bassinet in our room to her room. So, we had to take down the canopy over her bed. It made me sad because it was so pretty, but I will put it back up later. It is not the safest thing to have over her bed right now!

The girls are doing really good and I will add some pictures of them this weekend! Have a good one!

Happy 4th of July!!

We had a wonderful 4th of July! Maisy, Maddie, Mommy and Daddy marched in the Denton 4th of July parade. It was a lot of fun. We decorated Maisy's car and Maddie's stroller and marched around the square! Our friend Chyanne was also in the parade and of course Maisy thought that was pretty cool! We came home and grilled hot dogs and the girls took a nap while daddy did some honey-do's! We did not get back out to see fireworks, we wanted to get to bed early tonight. Maybe next year we will see some! Here are some pictures from our day!

In other news, Maddie has turned 6 months old!! She went for her 6 month checkup and is growing like a weed! She weighs 17.2lbs and is 27 inches long! This puts her in the 75th percentile for weight and 90th percentile for height! Before you tell me my sweet little baby is chubby, I will have you know that Dr. Goff said she was well proportioned! So be nice! She is bigger than Maisy was at this age and while I was hoping to use alot of the same clothes, I did have to go buy some 6-9 month outfits for Maddie. I am not complaining...we all know I like to shop for the girls!

Maisy is her usual crazy self! We have sorta started to potty train. Our friends, Amanda and Matthew have inspired us! Matthew has been at it for a little over a week and is doing GREAT! So we have been working at it. Well, tonight she surprised us by initiating the potty breaks! She kept her diaper dry all afternoon! We are proud and hope this will go smoothly!

We took some time today to get some pictures of the girls together! Enjoy!

This one made me cry! My girls are so BEAUTIFUL!
