7 months

Sorry for the delay! I've had this mostly done since they turned 7 months, just wasn't able to work on it further with the two little monkeys who like to bang on my laptop when they see it, locking things up and doing things that take me forever to reverse because I'm just not too tech-savvy! Ha ;)

you girls! how you grow and bless my heart!

August 26: you started to pull yourself up on things Pem ... just like Pais! tho, you still like to scootch instead of crawl.

September 6: you are crawling most of the time now, Pem, and you sat up all by yourself for the first time!

September 22: Paisley, you let go of the couch and just stood in front of me for a few seconds. waaaaaah? bold little baby! you also can walk pretty well around something, like the bench in the kitchen.

September 23: Pem, you followed in sis' footsteps and stood without holding to the couch for a few seconds as well. the countdown is now on! walking is soon to follow!


Pem, you make an adorable clicking noise with your tongue.

you both love to sit on your knees.

a few days shy of 7 months, Pais, you popped a tooth on the bottom. A few days after that, Pem, you popped a new tooth on top! Tooth score: Pais: 1, Pem: 3

you both love buckles. on the car seat, booster seats ... anywhere you can find one!

you both love to play and get into everything. dvds are some favorites. and your headbands. and taking laundry out of the basket. folded laundry. must be folded or we don't bother with it.

a few days after you turned 6 months, you both hit a major sleep regression and went from waking up 2-3 times a night each, to EVERY HOUR. say whaaa? a few days of that and I hauled you into bed with me. we'll worry about getting you back into your cribs later. ;) plus, I really enjoy waking up to your beautiful faces and then watching whichever one of you is up first to crawl up on me to peek at the other on. adorable!

it is also nearly impossible for me to take a picture of you. as soon as you see the camera, you stop the cuteness you are doing and scurry as fast as you can for the camera.

I love, love, love it when you laugh at each other. one hiccups and the other laughs. one of you squeals, and the other laughs. of course though, I can't get it on film because as soon as the camera comes out we stop everything. trixy little girls!

what a joy you are to me!

mmm ... pie!

such joy!

found her standing, then we lowered the mattress.

Pem adores the dog bed. eeewwwww.

great grandma Rose!

she wanted a caramel apple.

I must have told them a funny joke.

paper bags = great fun

silly girl!

love those lashes!

the only way I could get them to sit still was to give them kitchen utensils. and the doll? yeah, they wouldn't let her sit there for anything. so much for a comparison!

6 month shoot

my dolls!

this is her favorite expression. bottom lip sucked in.
{and, I did not dress her.}

sweet face!
{she wouldn't leave her bow tied.}

I like big diapers and I cannot lie ...
she has a bottom lip, I promise.

this luggage belonged to their Great Grandma, Ellen Boysen.
