Lilypie First Birthday tickers

Sittin' pretty!

I find myself saying this every single month, but really... SLOW DOWN TIME! How is it that my sweet little babies are now half a year old. It is surreal. I think I will need a tranquilizer when their birthday rolls around.

Caroline's favorite pose.

As I mentioned in earlier posts, both of the babies have been sick. Worth had the stomach bug and Caroline had a double ear infection. Poor Worth has really suffered. He has had a bleeding diaper rash to only make his double digit dirty diapers all the more painful. We went to the doctor two times last week and the poor little thing is STILL going! Oh... and so is Caroline. I was trying to let Worth go diaper less as much as possible last week. He loved it! He rolled around like a wild man, laughed, and squealed with delight. I may have a nudist on my hands.

Caroline you should really try this naked thing. It's quite liberating.

In other BIG news... little miss priss can sit up! Now, I am not saying that she is the Rock of Gibraltar, but she can sit alone. I thought I would experiment tonight by sitting her up and letting go, and here is the end result.

Let the fun begin!!

We had a great weekend!! My parents, brother, sister in law, nieces, and 2 of my aunts came to visit. It was wild at our house with four little ones for sure! I loved every minute of it. Worth had the stomach bug last week and Caroline had a double ear infection. So, the visit not only gave me lots of great family time, but it also gave me LOTS OF HELP!

Eugene has started working his LONG hours 7 days a week. Harvest time is serious, and I will pretty much be a single parent until Thanksgiving. I know that this will not last forever, but having my family here gave me an extra boost of confidence and just enough TLC to get me going. I am praying hard for strength, energy, and a positive attitude every single day. I know that the challenges of having 2 little ones can be overwhelming, but I can't imagine what my life would be like without them. Thank you God for blessing me with an amazing family, husband, and 2 beautiful babies!

Go State!! (We all cheered on our Dawgs Saturday night.)

Makin' memories

The babies were in the best mood yesterday when we got home from daycare/work. So we had a little 5 month photo session.

"Oh Worth just face it... I'm the cutest."

Family fun

Worth is AMAZED by his hands and feet. I find him staring like this a lot!

Please pass the spoon...

because I could pretty much eat these two kiddos up!

Worth is teething like crazy. He cut his two bottom teeth at 4.5 months. I really think he is working hard on his top ones now. They haven't broken through, but he has ALL the symptoms.

It may sound crazy, but both Caroline and Worth are really just now holding their heads up well. Maybe I didn't do enough tummy time, or maybe being a month early has some of their developmental milestones a bit delayed. I am quite relieved that they can both "do the turtle." This was the best I could get of Caroline. She has her hand in her mouth 23.75 hours a day.

For those of you who have seen my sweet bucket headed baby boy in person, you know this is a BIG milestone! I am so proud he can pick up his big ole melon.

Everyday is a true delight with these two sweet babies. I feel less overwhelmed more often than not these days. That's a good feeling. For anyone that has ever suffered from the baby blues finally reaching a point when you have more happy times than sad times is such a welcomed change.
