Big and Bigger

January 24, 2009

We took the twins in for their six month check up and Dominik weighed in at a hefty 19 pounds, 1 ounce and measured 28 inches. The doctor laughed when he saw his fat thighs and told us he probably wouldn’t even feel his shots.

Jump For Joy It’s Been 6 Months!

January 10, 2009

Dominik and Scarlett turned 6 months old today! To celebrate they jumped up and down together in their Bungee Baby Bouncers which were a gift from my very clever Uncle John.  We had a baby bouncer that had a seat in it but these are vastly superior. The twins, and Dominik in particular, really love these wild bouncers that look like rock climbing equipment from REI.

I think the kids feel more secure because the way these bouncers are designed they are very stable.  A wide velcro belt fastens securely around the bottle goblin’s waist and the bungie provides a really smooth bounce. I shot some video and I promise I’ll post it soon but here’s a couple pics in the meantime.

Jump Up and Get Down!

Thanks Grand Uncle John!!!!

Scarlett tries to look "cool."

Paradise Cove

January 8, 2009

During the family holiday visit, we took the twins to Paradise Cove Cafe in Malibu. This was a big deal because it was their first time sitting in restaurant high chairs.

Matinee Date

January 4, 2009

Our very good friends, Emma and Sophie, came over for a few hours to watch the kids so that MJ and I could have a matinee date.  While we saw Bolt, Scarlett played in her exersaucer.

Then everyone went for a walk:

Much to our surprise, the twins were napping by the time we got home. Parenting seems to come naturally to these two and we can’t wait for them to have kids of their own!
