Our first cold!

This was supposed to be a post about all the cute things my babies have been doing lately. Unfortunately, the newest news is that we are experiencing our very first colds, complete with coughing, congestion, runny noses, and fever. And boy are we having having a blast! The only one who has gotten any sleep in the past 3 days is Jackson. Aaron and I are living basically like we did when th babies first came home; one of us is up with her 24 hours a day. She can't sleep anywhere but on us, so we spend a lot of time in the lazy boy rocking her. Jackson has been real trooper, sleeping from 6:30 pm until 6:30 am last night. Wow! If Aaron and I hadn't been up with Lola all night that would have been even better!But before we were sneezes and spit up, there were fun times:

No longer content to lie in the bouncy seat, Lola wants to look at it from the grown up side.
Jackson is took a 1 hour nap in his crib in the middle of the day. Those of you who have spent hours at my house rocking him will appreciate what a feat this is!

Mom's not ready for babies to be moving!

I was only gone 5 minutes and I came back to find this...
Lola was on the blanket when I left. Good thing that was water I left on the floor and not hot coffee!

Aaron and I are taking on the baby-proofing project this week while he's on vacation, and not a moment too soon from what it looks like. Lola is scooting all over the place, but she can only move backwards so she is still somewhat limited. And while Jackson is a bit slower out of the gate, he manages to move a foot or so whenever I leave him for too long.

First thing on the baby-proofing list, no more leaving drinks on the floor!

Too Cute!

These were too great not to post immediately!
2 sleeping babies, a beautiful sight! I think they're starting to look so much alike.Jackson trying to be a big boy. I'm totally excited and terribly sad at the same time!Looks like Lola might take after her mom, already practicing her gymnastics!I took this one right after I found Lola chewing on Jackson's arm. "Who me?" she says. Jackson is pretty mellow about her chewing habit, although later in the day he gave her a couple of swift kicks to the chin.
