The girls turned 5 months old yesterday. I know I keep saying this...but I can't believe how fast time is flying by. I look back to a year ago and we were in our 2 week wait, waiting to see if the IUI had worked and if we were pregnant. I don't think I even had a thought that we would be having twins. I was just hoping that we would get pregnant after a couple of tries with the IUI. We were so lucky and blessed to not only get pregnant the first try, but get twins out of the deal.
So here we are a year later with beautiful girls that smile at us every day. Sometimes I can't believe how much our life has changed, but the other part of me doesn't even remember what life was like before these girls took over our lives. Addison is our forever happy girl. Very little makes her upset and she always has a big smile on her face when she sees you. Riley is a little more reserved with her smiles but when she is really happy, she lets you know.
I wanted to add some pictures for their official 5 month mark but the girls had other plans. They were napping on different schedules and didn't allow me to get them dressed up for a little photo shoot. I'm hoping to catch some new photos this week. I bought some new outfits at the Carter's store at 70% off and some Halloween onesies that say "Baby's first Halloween" on them. Jesse didn't' see the point of dressing them in costumes since they are so young and it is so darn hot here in Phoenix. I think it was 106 degrees outside to day. If anyone knows where fall is.....can you send her over to Phoenix for us please? We don't plan to go trick or treating with them this year so the $5 onesies will have to do. Jesse knows that next year I will have my fun getting them dressed up and the girls should enjoy themselves as well.
I don't have a whole lot to report for their 5 month mark. Riley is getting good at holding her bottle up herself, although she is not that coordinated yet. Addison continues to laugh like crazy and Riley is just starting to show us her laugh. We will have more height and weight stats next month when the girls have their 6 month well baby check-ups. So for now, happy 5 months girls!
