Poppy Eats the Camera

While filming Olive, Poppy decided that the camera looked good enough to eat.

The Joneses Come to Town

Last weekend, our friends Brian and Sam Jones drove for hours from Virginia to meet Olive and Poppy and to offer two extra sets of hands for the night. We had such a wonderful time together. We even groomed them a bit in case they have kids one day, "letting" them (making them) lend a hand where needed. I think they had fun; after all, who wouldn't love to play with babies all day long? Because Brian is such a wonderful photographer, he taught us how to use our new professional-grade digital camera. In the process, Jill and Brian both snapped some beautiful pictures of the girls. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

In a moment of super cuteness, Olive fell asleep in her jumperoo.

Back at home...

These are the pictures that Brian took at the park.

One final note... On Monday, I thought that Poppy and Olive were getting sick. All day long, they cried and slept and barely ate anything. It really took a lot out of me. However, I was rescued by my wonderful mother-in-law! She knew it was a rough day and drove down to relieve me for a bit. Thanks so much, mom!

Food, Family, and Fun, Part 3

Finally, the fun!

"Hello, there!"
Balancing Act
"I eat fingers!"

Food, Family, and Fun, Part 2

Now, the family.

Aunt Sandy came to visit last week, and the babies loved seeing her! Aunt Sandy had a trip planned about a month ago but got sick and couldn't make it down. Finally, she was able to spend time here. Thanks for helping us out while you were here... it is greatly appreciated. Olive and Poppy miss you!

This past weekend, we drove to Maria and David's house so that the cousins (Poppy, Olive, and Shaefer) could hang out before baby Memphis arrives this month. It was the longest car ride that the girls have ever taken. It was a long two hours for them, but since Jill and I took turns sitting between them, they did OK! The first picture is Maria, David, and Shaefer, and the second picture is Shaefer showing Olive how to play with the exersaucer. Memphis is the one in my sister's belly.
