7 Months!

Yep again we cannot believe how old we are getting. Things are going very well for us. We had a great Thanksgiving but missed our big sister who went to the beach. We didn't get to eat Thanksgiving dinner with everyone because we were napping. But we still had a good day. We also still love Mrs. Sherry's house very much. She gives us lots of kisses while mom and dad are at work. We are so lucky to have so many people who love us!

From Mallory- I'm also sitting up. I'm not attempting to crawl yet though. I've decided my gut is too big and just gets in my way most of the time. I will get up on my arms and rock though. Not on all fours yet! I'm needing 6-9 month clothes these days, which means my sister looks swallowed in her clothes so we can continue to match! I've also busted out the size 3 diapers for the junk in my trunk. My rolls are so stinking cute and mommy keeps saying my thighs look just like hers! I also have a tooth. I've had it for a week now and was a TROOPER! Mommy didn't even know that I was cutting a tooth. I'm such a good girl. I LOVE to talk and do it all the time. I've started saying a few different sounds now and like to be heard! I'm not fussy about it though, just vocal. And my head is just so pretty these days! I've been wearing my helmet for almost 5 weeks now. The noggin doctor originally said I would need it for 10 weeks but now they are saying 8! So I'm hoping to get it off right before Christmas. Mommy says she wants it off so she can give me kisses a little easier. So, stay tuned for my before and after pictures. You will be amazed!

From Samantha- I'm sitting up and have figured out how to get to a sitting position from my tummy. I'm so limber that it hurts mommy when she watches me contort my body. I can also army crawl. I'm just on the verge of taking off and really crawling the right way. I get up and rock on all fours but then I drop and drag myself with my arms. I'm still very little. I can still wear my 3-6 month clothes and I'm still in a size 2 diaper. I do however eat more than my sister! I can really pack the baby food and milk in! I've also started to get mad when mommy leaves the room and I'm alone with Mallory. I get pretty vocal until she acknowledges me or comes back in the room. Mommy thinks I'm going to be a drama queen! Good thing I'm so cute and can pull off the Drama Queen title well! Oh, I got a tooth yesterday!

Can you tell I'm having a hard time getting these girls to sit still!!!!!!!!!

We have a tooth and other misc. things from the week!

Raegan had her Thanksgiving Feast this week at school. It was fun and the cafeteria food was actually pretty good! When asked what she was thankful for, she said "Mrs. Shuster." She loves Mrs. Shuster!

Bubbie and Grandma Jane joined us for the Feast!

We have started to really interact lately. Right before this picture was taken, Mallory was sucking on Samantha's ear!
Mallory was so happy this week even though she finally has a tooth! Go Mallory!
We are champion sitter-uppers. Samantha has also mastered the army crawl and can move pretty quick!

End of the Season Soccer Party

Raegan had her end of the season party on Friday at Pizza Hut. We had a great time. Coach Scott will no longer be coaching next season and we will miss him!

The girls- Kylee, Natalie, Jordyn, Raegan, Maddie, Syndey, Taylor.

The babies also went and were so good. Here they are holding hands. Awwwwwwwww!

6 Months of Fun!

Please enjoy the little montage I've put together of the girls' first 6 months of life. It's been a great ride!

The End of the Soccer Season

Today was Raegan's last soccer game for the season (unless we do indoor). And of course it was a chilly one! It was 43 degrees out with wind gusts of about 15 mph. CHILLY! Raegan played a great game along with the rest of her team. I love watching them play and can't believe how much they have improved in the past 3 season!

Jake, Maddie, Raegan, Jordan all bundled up!
Raegan on the field. She has so much fun playing soccer!
The hat was a tight fit for Mallory with her helmet. I decided the best place for her binky holder was her hat of course. She didn't mind one bit!
Bubbie and all her grandgirls! Bubbie with Mallory, Sloane with Samantha, and Raegan.

Sleepy Sunday!

Well not much is going on with us. We are keeping busy with soccer, gymnastics, family, and helmet adjustments! Mallory has had her first adjustment and they were very impressed with the progress so far. She is completely symmetrical now and is starting to look not so flat. Hopefully this means the time will be shorter than 10 weeks!

Samantha is starting to army crawl! She gets up on her knees and pulls herself toward something. I think she'll be crawling soon! Mallory on the other hand could care less about being mobile. She is just content on her back. We're trying to teach her to "rock" like Samantha does. So Raegan and I run around saying "rocka, rocka, rocka." Yes we are big dorks.

Raegan has learned how to ride her bike without training wheels! She loves going on bike rides so we plan on attaching the bike trailor and taking the girls a few times this week if the weather is nice!

Anyway, on to some current pictures!

This is how I found Mallory during her nap the other day. The blanket was completely wrapped around her head. All that was visible was her binky. Scared me at first but she sure was happy!
We went to Sloane's 8 am soccer game on Saturday. It was a bit chilly so the girls wore their hoodies for the first time. They won't be able to wear this outfit much longer (well Mallory won't for sure!)
First time in big girl overalls! They look so cute!

Happy Halloween!

We had a great Halloween this year! Raegan was Dorothy and the babies were her Flying Monkeys. We went trick-or-treating with all of our neighborhood friends and then went to the Helms' for some running around. It was a great time!
All ready to rock and roll!
We were quite the group coming up to people's houses. We cleaned out someone's house and the man was so happy because that meant he could go to the races! His duty was done!

Here was most of our group. This is missing the Wilson clan of 3 plus 3 cousins. Mallory, Samantha, ZD, Alex, Aiden, Raegan, Nicole, Ashley, Max, Kallen, Kolden.

We hope you enjoyed some good trick-or-treating!

6 Months Already!

Woa! We are 6 months old these days! We can't believe that we are getting so big. So in the world of the Sharer twincesses, things are going great. We are eating solid foods like champs and we continue to get only mommy's milk. She was so excited today when she realized she met her original goal of 6 months of only breastmilk. She thinks her ta-tas can make it another 6 months. No problem!

We are happy little things and like to go places that our big sister goes. We like soccer games, practice, gymnastics, and all of her school events. We are so patient until we get in the car to go home and then all hell breaks loose. But we are doing better in the car. No long road trips in our future though!
So from Samantha's end of the world things are good. Samantha has become a bit of the quiet one lately. She is still going to physical therapy but has been dropped down to every other week. Samantha passed her noggin screener and did not need a fancy helmet. She is able to sit up with a bit of her arms to prop herself. Samantha can also scoot to about any place within a 5 foot radius of where she is laid down. She is also the champion sleeper these days and has figured out how to find her binky in her crib. Good girl! As far as her stats, here they are...13 lb 11 oz (10th %tile) and 25 3/4" (49th %tile). So she's still on the charts!
From Mallory's side of the world things are also looking great! Mallory is quite the chatty one and sometimes screams just to hear herself. She isn't upset but just noisy. Mallory has a super, duper noggin shaper. She has been wearing it for 3 days now and is doing great with it. Mom says that any baby that can sleep in their own poop and not care, could obviously care less about wearing something on their head! And she is right of course. Mallory is also sitting with just a little arm prop. She can roll with the best of them. Mallory has become a bit needy at night and wants to be plugged throughout the night. She doesn't know it yet but this weekend that is going to come to an end. Please keep mommy in your thoughts. And the chunk's stats are...17 lb 11 oz (80th %tile) and 27 1/4" (91st %tile). Yep she is EXACTLY 4 pounds heavier than Samantha! Crazy!
