Hey ya’ll, if anyone is still checking “Life with Twins,” I won’t be posting here anymore. I have a new blog with my hubby, Reinman. Come check us out!

The twins were 8 months old yesterday. Eight months old! Wow. Can you believe it? This year sure is flying by.

Little bear hanging out with his dad.

So, big sister has taken it upon herself to do whatever the twins are doing, whether it be crying, rolling over on the floor or chewing on toys. I’ve told her many times that she’s a big girl, not a baby, but you know how well two-year-olds listen. In this next picture I was getting B dressed for the day and E saw me take off all her sister’s clothes. So, E had to take off all her clothes too and also put on a diaper instead of her big girl panties. 🙂

B sat up on her own for the first time the other night. I can’t believe it! She’s getting so big. Soon she’ll be crawling!!

The twins are almost 8 months old. Crazy, I know! I love how they are starting to interact with each other. They sleep in separate cribs but you can see them looking for each other when we first lay them down for their naps. B loves to take A‘s pacifier out of his mouth. Sometimes he’ll cry and other times he’ll just roll over and go about his business.

I found them on the flooring “talking” to each other:

And then I found this:

Chewing on brother’s foot….

Pretty pleased with herself…

Brother’s revenge!!

Pretty pleased with himself…

Last week we got out E‘s Adrian Peterson jersey that she used to wear last year. I figured that with A being so big, he could probably fit into it. Well, as soon as E saw it, she had to wear it. And she’s been wearing it everyday since….

B is so close to crawling it’s scary! I can’t believe how big she’s gotten. Pretty soon she’ll be cruisin’ around the floor. Watch out then!

And because we couldn’t leave A out:

Up next: Twin time!

E really wanted to take a picture with the twins, which is not normal for her. Usually she wants nothing to do with them, especially since they always invade her space.

Smile!

Big girl

I tried to get a good picture of E in her cute Thanksgiving outfit but she was too busy playing with toys at Grandma’s house.

We put up the Christmas tree a few days ago and I’m constantly having to move the twins away from the tree. Silly babies.

The twins are six months old today! I can’t believe it.

Thanksgiving babies

We are so blessed to have these two in our lives. They are so awesome!

I thought it would be good to update everyone on the kids. The twins have started to sleep through the night. Yah!! Usually they wake up once or twice just because they want their pacifiers. They generally go to bed around 7 or 8 and get up at 7. It’s awesome! I wish we would have realized that putting them to bed early was a good thing a month or two ago. We used to try to keep them up until like 9 because we thought they would sleep better and longer. Well, that’s not the case with these two. More sleep=more sleep. Lovely.

Smiley boy

B has started falling asleep on the floor of wherever we are. It makes things really easy when we’re out visiting people. She also will just fall asleep within 5 minutes when I lay her in her crib for naps, whereas A can sometimes cry and whine for a bit. It’s amazing how different these babies can be for twins. And to prove this point before I started this post I put the twins down for a nap. By the end of it, B was already sleeping and A was trying to roll over. Haha.

Isn't she sweet?

Look at those two teeth!

Our biggest challenge lately is that we started potty training with E. I wish we could have gotten this done before the twins arrived but I don’t think she was ready. I have figured out a little secret to get her to sit on the potty. Books. If I tell her we’ll read books while she’s sitting on the potty she’ll sit there for like an hour. The only problem with this is that she’ll sit for about 30 minutes on the potty and she won’t go. Then she’ll get up and go into the living room or wherever and pee. LOL. We’ll get there I know! She’s a smart little girl.

Potty and book time for this little girl!

We had a great time on Halloween. We went and visited with friends and family and the kids were great! We didn’t do any trick or treating and we really didn’t need to. We still came home with a bag full of candy.

The twins turned five months old yesterday. What!? When did that happen? I really can’t believe it. Since they’ve gotten older B is not as fussy at night, which makes Mama happy!

We really are enjoying this time of our lives. With B squealing constantly (I’m afraid she’s going to disturb some people in church tomorrow. LOL) and A just being his normal, smiley self, and E being tons of fun and ever getting into trouble as always, we love our lives.

We’ve been stuffing these babies full of rice cereal and bananas and I think it’s been helping them sleep better at night. Last night B got up once and she only drank 2 oz so I know she could sleep through the night. And, well, A, he’s been a little bugger. He doesn’t want to sleep. He would rather stay up and hang out with parents. Not that I can blame him, we are pretty awesome! I’m hoping that with his belly more full of food he’ll sleep better.
