7monthsthe twins are 7 months old! i say this everytime, but only because it’s true – i can’t believe how quickly the time has gone. it’s been a rough week for them as they’ve both had terrible colds {which they’ve now passed along to adam + i}. but even so, they still manage to squeeze out smiles all day long. they really are the happiest little babies i’ve ever known.


little miss thatcher bay is still our feisty girl. she is more determined than ever to master every developmental milestone. currently she is crawling all over the place, lifting herself up, standing on her own while leaning or holding onto something, sitting unassisted, climbing all over, and desperately trying to find her balance to be able to stand without any support {she gets about 2-3 seconds before landing on her butt}. she has her first tooth, loves giving hugs + kisses, and although she hasn’t said her first word yet she “talks” up a storm. she loves just about any food you give her, but gets bored with eating so she needs a toy {usually a spare spoon} to keep her interest during dinner. her favorite activity is “walking” and although she still needs to hold our fingers for balance, i have a feeling it won’t be long before she’s running around on her own. she really is the smiliest, most loving little girl and we’re so lucky that she is ours.


baby breckie is our snuggle bug. he has a smile that lights up not only his whole face, but my entire heart. he is sweet, patient, and has the most contagious giggle. he’s quite a bit bigger than thatcher {at their 6 month appointment he was 1.5 lbs heavier than her and i suspect that gap has gotten even wider since then}. i’m sure it won’t come as any surprise to hear that he loves food – he eats any and everything we give him {the kid ate a hamburger while we were in kansas city!}. he’s not crawling yet and honestly isn’t really showing any interest, instead he just rolls himself everywhere. adam + i debate whether or not he has said “mama” {i’m sure you can guess who thinks he has and who thinks he hasn’t}, but regardless he loves to “talk”. he has a phenomenal attention span and it’s amazing to watch him take something in and figure it out. he stands when leaning up against something or holding onto our fingers, he sits unassisted, and he is working really hard to go from a laying to a sitting position. his favorite activity is his baby einstein exersaucer and listening/dancing to music. he is so cuddly and gives the strongest hugs and everyday he just melts my heart.


it’s hard to believe that this is the last monthly update we’ll have in chicago. so much is happening right now, but it’s a lot easier to deal with when i have these two smiley faces next to me everyday! happy 7 months babies!
