9 months

I was on my own today and so taking the nine month picture wasn't as easy as it usually is.  I was in quite a pickle, as they say, when it came to trying to keep my moving Love Bugs still.  So enjoy my "nice try" at the nine month photos.

It's been fun to see their different personalities come out.  For example, Li Li hasn't started crawling even though her sister is totally on the move.  Li Li seems to be more of a "hang back and figure it out first before taking action" kind of girl (aka Hubs) and Belle is more of a "jump right in"... (ahem, me).  Belle is crawling and getting into EVERYTHING.  She sits up and has even started pulling up to a standing position on furniture around the house.  It's so crazy how fast she's been progressing with this phase.  I feel like Belle will be an early walker but who knows?
does anyone else think this cute little outfits look like "hammer pants"? Just saying'...

They both LOVE to eat and love carrots, squash, avocado and banana.  They love cheerios and feeding themselves most of all.  They're getting so independent. (sniff, sniff)

(Lil's is in the pink and Bellsk is in the yellow)

Happy Birthday precious girls.  We love you so!

yeah... nice try mama! It's always nice to have an extra set of hands around this house these days.

Spring Break 2012

My sister in law called me Friday wondering what I was up to the following week and before I knew it, we had plans to meet in Vegas for a little getaway.
It was so much fun and an adventure for me since I had never cared for the girls by myself.  I LOVED seeing my family and was so excited to get away for a little while.
Enjoy pictures from our Spring Break 2012.

I completely felt like I was "cheating" on the Cars characters as I drove to Vegas and back.  Sorry guys but the interstate is faster!
