Catching up...

Almost immediately after the twins were born I remember thinking about the newborn vortex we were about to enter and saying, "I wish we could just fast forward 6 months." Well I think my wish came true because it seems like I blinked and here we are, less than 1 week away from their 6 month birthday. We are loving this age! Both twins are about 5 minutes away from crawling so I don't think we will have much more time in this relatively easy stage where they can play independently but not move.

Lots to catch up on but I'm just going to post a bunch of pictures for now:

My mom and sister Annie were out for a quick visit a couple of weekends ago to throw Katie a bridal shower. It was a lovely afternoon and a pretty laid back affair, which is how Katie prefers her bridal showers.

One of the best gifts was this quilt from our Grandma O. Hand-made by a 97 year old - can you believe it?

Yesterday I was getting the twins ready to go for a walk - hoping they would nap in the stroller since it had been a long day of cat napping for both of them. I got Greta situated in the stroller and came back for Gus to find him asleep on the floor.

The weather has been amazing this weekend - in the 80s both Saturday and Sunday. Gus and Greta helped Eric with some yard work this morning.

Lastly, we've begun the messy foray into solid foods. So far they are not exactly into it. Then again, I haven't told them about pizza yet.
