The Twins Are 7 Months Old!

Matthew and Claire turned 7 months old on July 16th!! Here are some quick updates: Matthew has 4 teeth: 2 on the bottom and 2 on the top. He loves to talk (favorite words are bababababa and maaaaaaaaaa) and play with his toys. He sits up by himself and can scoot toward something that he wants. Matthew has quite a bit of hair, it’s just hard to see because it’s so blonde! He’s about 19 pounds and 28 inches, he has pretty much outgrown all his 3 to 6 month clothes and is on to mostly 6 to 9! We need to look at our carseat situation; I know the infant seats go up to 22 pounds but I am now wondering about the height requirement so we might need to get out their regular carseats soon. Claire has 2 teeth on the bottom and is working on her 2 top teeth. She loves to talk (favorite words are dadadadada and bababababa) and SCREAMMMMM at the top of her lungs. She can sit up by herself and giggles out loud at the dog. Claire still has her pretty red hair, and seems to be getting more of it lately. She’s about 16 pounds and 28 inches; she’s still mostly in 3 to 6 month clothes with and occasional 6 to 9 month outfit. We’ve started adding veggies to our meal routines. So far they’ve tried peas and carrots (in addition to their oatmeal or rice cereals and fruits). They’ll eat the peas but they’re both on the fence with whether or not they like them. Claire really likes carrots and Matthew seems to think they’re OK.


7 Months Old!!

Yea! Ranger kisses!

Yea, we're cool...

Sweet! Toys!

Jeremy’s parents were home this week so they came over on Thursday and Friday to play with the babies. Jeremy and I had softball on Friday night (we had 2 really late games and lost miserably!!! but that's another story). Jeremy had to work all weekend, so Jill, my Mom and I took Matthew, Claire and Heidi to the Founders Festival parade on Saturday. Ranger the dog tagged along, too. We walked with the strollers from Jill’s house to downtown (it was about a mile or so each way so we got some good exercise!). Between the 3 babies and the dog we attracted wayyyy more attention than I care to but all in all we had a fun day. Rhonda, Eileen, and Tab met us there; Tab brought her 3 nieces, Kylie, Ariana and Isabella. We all walked around the festival; I saw a few really cute craft projects that I’d like to try if I ever get a minute! Jill and I also scoped out the coolest playhouse for the babies once they’re older (I'm going to see if Grampa S and Uncle Andrew want to help me tackle this project next summer!). I think it’s way too elaborate to actually make, but it would be awesome if we could!!! By the time we were walking back to Jill’s house the babies were pretty tired, Matthew and Claire took a nap in the stroller.

Hanging out after the parade (Claire and Heidi had to sport their sunglasses!!)
We love balloons!
Matthew was entertaining Alonzo, Hatch and Foshag at the MDA tent! (or was it the other way around???)

So sleepy....

Isn't this playhouse awesome!?!?
Jeremy had to work Sunday, too, so after church my Mom and I were able to catch up on some errands and do a little housework. Jeremy met me at my parents’ house after work so my Mom could watch Matthew and Claire while we went to see the new Harry Potter movie. It’s nice to be able to get out by ourselves once in awhile!

  1. Hi Kristyn,
    It was nice meeting you and your adorable babies at the parade a few weeks ago. Congrats on surviving the first 7 months! I love the blog header pic with them in their swimsuits and sunglasses. :) I'm hoping to make pie night one of these months (for HVPOM).
