Traveling; eating ‘real’ food; and sitting up!

It’s been a wild and crazy month! Lots of firsts. We took a trip to South Florida for a good friend’s wedding and saw many cousins, aunts, and uncles along the way.  The boys even got to spend the weekend with their Aunt Teri (Olivia’s sister) and 8 of their cousins… who of course spoiled them!

Big news this month is that Wiley has started rolling over at night and Owen has started sitting up!  Owen has also started sleeping 12 hours through the night!  Wiley has been sleeping 12 hours for about 2 months, but we wanted to give Owen an extra feeding.  We’ve also started the boys on solid foods and are having lots of fun making our own baby food.  Steamed sweet potatoes or stewed pears, anyone?  Yesterday, we took the boys swimming for the first time.  The water was still a little chilly, but Owen had a great time and Wiley just sat in his floaty and giggled, kicking his feet.  They’ll be little fish in no time!

Here’s a few pictures from the last month.

Always happy, Wiley loves taking a bath.  We even went in our friend's pool yesterday and he just giggled!  He loves the water so much!

Look at those cute boys holding hands!

I love this pictures because it pretty much sums up how the boys interact all day.  Smiley, happy and fighting to get the other's hand in their mouth.

Mrs. Rose came over to read the boys a story.  This is one of their favorite books about caterpillars becoming butterflies.
