Pigtails and Garden photos

Emma's hair is getting so long. I put it up in pigtails for the first time the other day. It was ADORABLE! :-)



You can also see the tail end of Mary's shiner. She fell in the bathroom at the end of last week and knocked her cheek/eye on the side of the tub. It happens when you're learning to walk.

She hasn't quite managed to get up there on her own, but she sure does love being on the couch. She can get down no problem.

Silly goofs:




And here are some photos from my garden, I had fun playing around capturing new growth and tiny details:

Science Museum

We decided to venture over to the Science Museum in St. Paul this morning. A storm came through early in the A.M. and we thought it might linger into the morning but it actually cleared up early and was a beautiful day. Since we had already talked about going to the museum that plan was in place.

There is currently a space exhibit, which we didn't pay to go into, but did get to see the GIANT astronaut in the atrium.

Isaac was very excited to go back to see the dinosaurs. His favorite dino is the triceratops. Some interesting facts we learned of today is that the MN Science Museum has one of four full triceratops on display in the world and happens to be the LARGEST. So that is pretty cool. Our triceratops has a scar that lights up which is a favorite of Isaac's. I didn't get any photos of the dinosaurs but we went to see the other bones and play with the models for a bit.

Then we checked out the light exhibits. Those are always fun.

Colorful shadows:

The backyard exhibit opened for the season today. We hadn't been out there before thinking it was just mini-golf, but there was other things to explore. Here he got to water rocks and learn about water from a well and how rocks hold water.

The girls did so-so. Not as well as our last visit here 6 months ago. They wanted to get out and explore more but we didn't really let them. We hit Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch on the way home then as soon as we pulled in I had to leave for work, so it has been quite the busy day for me :-(

MoM picnic

Sunday I had my MoMs picnic (Mothers of Multiples club). It was a gorgeous day! I had signed up to help with set up; Isaac helped me while the girls napped in the van with Kyle. 

He helped aka played :-) here he's testing out the bubbles. 

Of course the girls were sleeping great because we were waiting for them to wake up. I think Kyle finally woke them and brought them out to join us. Emma is enthralled with the hula hoop. 

Chewing on some unused bubble wands. 

Isaac jumping in the bounce house. 

After lunch or during it I guess, the bounce house had cleared out so I put the girls in. 

Like liked crawling around. 

I even let them split a cookie, ha!

Ponies arrived at 1:00 and the talk of the day. I hadn't really talked it up to Isaac but he was still interested in riding. So he waited his turn and got to go. First bringing a carrot to the pony. 

Then a short little ride. He's obvious pretty tired at this point. 

We left after one more round in the bouncy house. Made it home with everyone awake so we were able to get them all down for a nap at the same time. 

We had an early dinner then made a quick trip to the splash pad. I didn't get any photos but it was the girls first time. They seemed to like it. Questionable at first but enjoyed sitting with us around one little spout while Isaac ran around us to the bigger sprinklers. The cold water felt nice after a long warm day.

13 months

On Wednesday the girls turned another month old! This past month went by fast it seems, maybe now that they are one time is just going to fly even faster.
13 months-5

13 months-6

The biggest change in the last month is that Mary is walking. She is so proud walking all over the house. It's nice because it's slowed her down again, she was becoming quite the speedy crawler. Emma is taking a step here and there but not too much interest yet.

Mary still doesn't have teeth but I think they are close. Emma is getting two more in that we just noticed today.

Emma loves to call out Isaac's name and it's getting pretty clear. They are both happy, adorable girls!

When I got the blocks out and set up, it was so cute to see how excited Emma was! As soon as I set her on the couch for her photo she was beaming with joy, too fast to actual capture it but here was the tail end of her excitement

I've mentioned before how Mary uses her middle finger to point at things. This photo cracks me up!

They are busy little bees

Isaac wanted in the photo too... but by this point no one was sitting still

They are also starting to like books even more, here's Mary the other day while the others were napping.

Friday night we were enjoying the evening and playing out front for a little bit. The girls love climbing and sitting in chairs. They had been climbing up and down these chairs all night but they climbed up together and were so cute. So of course I had to run inside and grab my camera!
