Had to get one of Riley in her glasses...

So here are a couple of pictures that I had to share.
The one of Tripp is from his two month montage that I took of him last week. I like to get photos of them at their month birthdays during that first year as most moms probably do. They just change so quickly.
He is a big boy weighing in at 15 lbs 12 oz and is a little over 25 inches long. He was almost 12 lbs when he was born so I expect nothing less! Right now he is in his swing fast asleep and sporting a football sleeper in size 6-9 months...a sleeper his brother, Cash, was wearing when he was about 4 months old! Yep, Cash was big too, especially for a twin!
Tripp has been such a good baby. He is sleeping through the night from about 9 pm until 5 am. This morning he even slept in a little...until 7 am!!! He really only ever cries if he is hungry or needs a diaper change. He is just starting to stay awake longer during the day and is really starting to smile a lot.
I love it when he smiles. It brightens up his entire face as well as mine!!!
Here are my other two crazy kids!
Riley is the oldest by a minute and will never let her brothers forget that fact I am sure. She is a take charge kind of girl already at only 21 months old. She knows what she wants and how to get it. She is very independent, but also loving. When she settles in your lap for a book or comes over to give you a big hug and kiss you really feel like God just gave you a little gift for she does not give those out too freely. She is always on the go and into everything!!!
Cash is our cuddler. He likes to be near by mom and dad. He often likes to give out hugs, kisses or knuckles (fist pounds, bumps or whatever you may call them). He loves his sister and likes to join in on her mayhem, but only after she tests out the waters first! He talks a lot and likes to dance. He also has a love for cars, tractors and "cool" buses along with his sister.
Right now I am trying to teach them their names or to say their names when they are asked. Currently I believe Riley thinks Cash is a Riley too. When Cash wakes up from his nap he always asks for "Wiley". They share a room and if Riley has already gotten up and gone downstairs, Cash will scream her name until he finds her. Obviously I think he has her name down. Sometimes when I ask him what his name is he says Riley, but then he says no and tells me his name is Cash with heavy emphasis on the "sh" sound.
They both seem to know Tripp by name. They always first call him baby, but then they follow it up with "Tip". They call me "mama" and Darin "dada". They know Grandma and both Grandpas, our dog Blue, Aunt Sarah and Cash even knows our little friend Merak by name. I know they probably know more people by name, but those are the ones that they know and say.
They are at such a fun age and I wish their grandparents lived closer to witness all these little changes they are going through each day, but for now I guess the web cam will have to do!

So I have been addicted to these blogs sites lately and thought that I needed my own. Now I am just trying to figure out how all this stuff works. I see all these fun blog sites with fancy borders and pictures...I need that fun stuff on mine. I also think this will be a fun way for me, a stay at home mom, to feel more in touch with the "adult world" out there. We can share some stories, recipes, pictures and all that fun stuff!
