New skills

A big day of firsts! Maggie rolled over! (Video to come)

And Charlie said his ABC's all by himself. Sorry for the bad video quality, but of course he needs to run around like crazy when he's singing.

4 months!

Look at this beautiful 4 month old! She's still super happy all the time, and still sleeping like a champ! She weighs 14 lbs, 6 oz (50 percentile) and is 25 inches tall (75 percentile). She got her shots today while her big brother held her hand. It was adorable!

Charlie's Other Other Family!

When me and Charlie were out shopping for Bre's birthday gift, we came across these little smileyface clay circle things that Charlie fell in love with.  And whatever - they were like 79cents each.  So we got four, and he picked them out in our four favorite colors (favorite as decided by Charlie - Bre is yellow, I am orange, Charlie is green, and Maggie is Purple).

Now he LOVES these things.  He likes to make believe that they are a little family and he has them drive places ("the museum") and play.  It's pretty adorable.

Here's Charlie with the one he calls "Pretend Maggie" (it's purple)

And playing with the whole family at "the museum"!

Grandma Cookie and Poppy's house

Beautiful ladies in Los Angeles! Look how much these two love each other!


Happy baby!


Happy baby with Nana!

On the way to the neighborhood Halloween Party!

Bre is busy in Cali with her family this week, so I thought I'd make a post or two!

Here's some pictures of Charlie and Maggie... err... I mean... our two Dinosaurs!  Going to our neighborhood Halloween Party!

Getting ready to go!

No good trip can start without a HUG!
