We went to a class today where babies learn sign language. Today's theme was Bathtime so we learned signs for water, bath, duck, bubbles, frog, and toothbrush. We sang songs, played in water and watched other babies. Mommy is actually going to do our classes at home but she thought she would check out another teacher first. Today was Nanny's last day with us. We will miss her but we know we will see her often! We went for a really long walk tonight as Mommy was trying to tire us out but we got locked out of the house! Mommy forgot the key and Daddy had to go to a meeting. Luckily Emily's mommy and daddy had a key at their house so we could get in. Sorry there are no pictures today....hopefully tomorrow!

We got your message! We have been noticeably absent from our blog because we have not been going to sleep easily lately, and thus, Mommy is too tired to log us on. One night, Garet wouldn't go to sleep. Another night, Kitt wouldn't go to sleep. We've even been waking up some in the middle of the night....we don't know what has happened to us. Neither do Mommy and Daddy, but we are all hoping to get back to a normal routine real soon! Mommy did weigh us yesterday and we are continuing to get bigger. Garet weighs 16 pounds, 5 ounces and Kitt weighs 15 pounds, 12 1/2 ounces. Garet is really living baby food while Kitt still is getting used to eating from a spoon. Kitt is doing well with her physical therapy. Here are a few pictures from today. We hope you enjoy them and we hope to be able to update a little more regularly this week.

As Grandpa pointed out, we have a new birthday counter at the top of our blog. We looked at it this morning and realized we are 8 months old already!!! Time flies :) We had a special lunch and dinner out for our birthday. For lunch we walked up to the Taqueria with Mommy and met Karol, Sam, and AB. Then on top of that, they came home with us to play! We took naps and then we went to dinner with Nanny, her family and some neighbors. It was a lot of fun watching the big kids play in the fountain at Felini's. It won't be long before we're playing in it! Mommy got Daddy a ticket to a concert tonight for a singer that he really, really likes so Mommy had us on her own. Garet slept better last night and now we're just waiting for Kitt to fall asleep. We hear that there is a big soccer game tomorrow morning so we might go out with Mommy and do something so that Daddy can yell at the TV (or cheer at the TV) without scaring us!

You might remember that last night Garet said it wouldn't be much longer before she went to bed but she was wrong. She stayed up another two or three hours and finally ended up sleeping in Mommy and Daddy's room so she wouldn't wake Kitt. They thought she would sleep late...but no! On to today.....we were wearing shoes today and we just thought they were so cute that we would show them to you. We walked up to Walgreen's in the afternoon and took naps. Tonight both Mommy and Daddy had something to go to so Nanny came back over. Of course, we had fun with her. There are also pictures of us with some new toys we got today.....another fun day!

Mommy weighed us this morning....we sure are big girls! Garet weighed 15 pounds and 15 ounces; Kitt weighed 15 pounds and 8 ounces. We went with Mommy and Nanny to the library for story time. It was so much fun. We are bigger now than last time so we seemed to have even more fun. Tonight Mommy and Daddy took us swimming! It was such a fun day. After the pool we both fell asleep during our last bottle of the day. Mommy and Daddy were so excited that we went to bed so early but then Garet decided she would get up after her "nap" so here we all are. It won't be long though.

Daddy chose to celebrate his birthday and Father's Day with our good friends, Bob, Anne Forrest, Bess and Will up in North Georgia. We had so much fun meeting new people and spending time with people we had already met. Last night we went to a member appreciation dinner which was a good old fashioned Low Country Boil! It looked delicious and we can't wait to be munching on big shrimp and corn on the cob like that. Today we went to church and stayed in the nursery for the first time. It's a lot of fun in there. Basically you go into a room and people hold you and play with you the whole time your mommy and daddy are in church! We gave Daddy his presents and had lunch. Now we're back home. We also want to tell Granny we are going to miss her comments as she goes on a cruise. We will see you soon though!

Today was Daddy's birthday! We got him a card and gave it to him this morning. Garet woke up super early hungry so Mommy fed her and they took a little nap together until Kitt woke up. This afternoon Mommy and Daddy's friend, Jennifer, came to visit. It was really nice meeting her and she even got on the floor and played with us. Later this evening we went to the pool. The water was so warm! Granny sent us these new floaty things but they were too big for now.....maybe later???? Enjoy the pictures. Oh and we forgot to tell you that Mommy weighed us yesterday. Kitt weighed 15 pounds, 3 ounces and Garet weighed 15 pounds, 11 ounces. We will see you soon!

.......but it was so very hot outside that we did not even leave the house! Mommy didn't take any pictures; even the pool was closed. That had nothing to do with the weather and it is open again, but we still thought we would let you know. Kitt did go to physical therapy yesterday morning before it got hot. Today we met some new friends. Mommy and Daddy's friends, Tamara and Jeff are in town from Rome (Georgia not Italy for those of you who might be confused). We all went for tacos and then hung out at home. At the taco store, there was another baby and when she started screaming, Garet got scared! Rather than put her back in the stroller after she calmed down, Mommy decided to try her in the big girl high chair. It worked! Check out the picture below. Tonight Mommy went out to dinner so Daddy took us for a walk to the cupcake store. It was a fun day!

Below are the videos as promised. Now on to today. Granny left today which always makes Mommy sad as Granny is so much help! We were sad, too, but know we will see her again very soon. Since we have seen her every month since we've been born, this will be no different! It is so hot here today that we didn't even go for our daily walk to Walgreen's! There is also a video of Garet giggling. It is especially for Aunt Kristen who really wanted to hear her laugh the last time we were in Pensacola. There is also a picture of Kitt in her crib. While you're wondering why it's a big deal, let us tell you. Kitt doesn't really like to move around much, but for some reason today she did. Mommy put her on her back horizontally in the crib. When Mommy came in to check on Kitt, this is how she found her (see the last picture below). When it cooled off a little, we went for a short walk in the neighborhood.

Grandpa left this morning after he and Daddy secured Mommy's glider in the front yard. We had a good visit with him and will miss him, but we are looking forward to spending a whole month with him and Granny later this summer. This afternoon we went with Mommy, Daddy and Granny to the pool again. Of course we had such a good time and got to wear the new swimsuits that Granny bought us. We also got a box full of new books this weekend from GAMA and have enjoyed reading them. Daddy took some video of us at the pool tonight, too, but it takes a long time to upload, and we were tired after all that swimming. We promise to put it on here tomorrow so stay tuned to see it!
