Welcome Babies!!

A few weeks ago, my mom and her friends had a welcoming party for Preston and Ethan. We couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous day! The day was filled with great food, drinks (Peach Sangria!!) and friends!! Preston was flirting with all the women at the party. Ethan, however, was cutting his first tooth and was miserable the entire time...so out of character for him.

I've posted a few pictures from the party below. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, I was unable to put captions to the pictures. So frustrating. Here are my captions for the pictures: The cake had a pea in the pod decoration and was all chocolate, which, if you know me, I LOVE CHOCOLATE!! The party favors were two peas in a pod cookie. The tables were decorated with pictures of the boys. The pictures of the ladies below include my mom, my sister, Aunt Chelsea and Aunt Annoula, my mom's close friend. And yes, my sister is pregnant and very cute, almost as cute as I was when I was pregnant with Preston and Ethan... :)))! I'm so EXCITED for my boys to have a cousin so close in age!!

Happy 6 month birthday babies!!

Preston and Ethan are a 1/2 year old already! Huh?? Where did the time go?? We've had a lot of fun over the past month. We had a welcoming party for the boys (post and pics to follow) and Mother's Day was a fun day as well. This month, Preston started sitting on his own and playing peek-a-boo with his blanket!! Ethan is very close to crawling. He will get from one side of the room to the other in minutes. They are doing everything by the book as far as when they should be doing what by a certain age...Praise God!! The boys also had their 6 month well-baby visit. The pediatrician was very pleased with their growth and development. These are the stats from their 6 month well-baby visit:

Preston:
Weight: 14 lbs, 7.4 oz
Length: 2' 1.75"

Ethan:
Weight: 14 lbs, 5.3 oz
Length: 2' 1"

I went out to the grocery store ALONE with the boys for the first time since they've been born. It was a pretty big step for me. The boys were great and I actually cried as I was walking into the store, just me and my boys, for the first time. It was quite empowering, actually. I was amazed at the number of people that asked if I needed any help. My response? "Thank-you, but I do this all
the time." Haha! Ya right! I had Ethan in the shopping cart and carried Preston in the Babyhawk. It worked beautifully!
