Silly faces and new discoveries

Since we've returned home from traveling, the girls are using their latest talent (crawling) to get them into rooms they never knew existed. They love coming into the kitchen and they've discovered how to open the cabinets.

I'm worried about them pinching their fingers, so I pulled some safe kitchen stuff out for them to play with. I can't wait to cook with my girls. It's never too early to start teaching them to stir and strain, right?

Have you met our new little puppy, Lauren? The girls like to get into Josie's bed and Josie is such a good girl that she doesn't seem to mind. Don't worry germaphobes, I just washed the dog bed.

But, the funny thing about these pictures is the faces Lauren has been making lately. She scrunches up her face all the time lately. I can't quite figure out why she's doing it, but it's so cute. When she's not scrunching her face, she's got her tongue out. Wednesday, I got their pictures taken and we could not get her to keep her tongue in her mouth. Silly girl.

This morning, I decided to try a pony tail in Lauren's hair again and it's getting better. There' s now enough hair up their to actually keep the rubber band in place.

Jillian's hair is still growing and is so beautiful. It gets in her eyes a lot, but I refuse to cut it. I think it will grow out so pretty. I just bought her some new barettes and she looks so cute, don't you think?

I also added these pictures, because these are the shirts that Nannie Joyce (my grandma) bought for them when we were in Kansas City last week. I wanted her to see them.

"Hi Nannie Joyce! We love our new butterfly shirts!"

Wow, they're getting so big so fast - and so unbelievably cute!!! Welcome to the world of discovery, where the toy industry spends billions and billions of dollars on new inventions, yet the kids are happiest playing with puppy dog beds, pots and pans, and the like!!! ;o) Such cute pics! Thanks for sharing

if your girls can cook half as good as you, we're all going to be in trouble. The dinner you brought over last week was amazing......I need that recipe! Thanks again!!!

Hey-- Lucas wants to know when he can take your girls out to Qu-zee's again?!?! Haha! We miss hanging out with you guys there. Remember when they were super tiny and just SAT in their car seats? Now I'm afraid they're on the verge of stealing our burritos!?! Hope to see you four soon!!
