Busy Beaver

Nap time in the cribs seem to be non-existent these days. I peeked in today and this is how I found Aiden.

Upon closer look, this is how I found his crib!
AUGH! Guess it's time to find those clear crib protector things! I guess when the boy has 8 teeth he's going to start chewing on some things!

Fun in the Sun

We LOVE playing outside!

But DO NOT like wearing hats!

All that playing makes us SLEEPY!

This weekend we had my friend Stephanie come over and take pictures of the family and the twins. Steph is an AMAZING photographer and also owns her own business--Baby La Plume. I've posted pictures before with Addi wearing some of her beautiful headbands. There are WAAAAY too many great shots, so here is just a sampling. I can't wait to get them printed and get a big one for our living room! Thanks again Stephie!!

9 months

My little bug-a-boos are 9 months old today! I cannot believe it! It seems like just a few days ago that we were wondering when we could finally take them home from the hospital. Now they are just into everything!

9 days old!

Ding--Round 1

The wrestling has begun!

These two pictures were too cute not to post.

I've been behind on my blogging, but hopefully these last posts make up for it!!!

We have 2 fishies!

The twins LOVED swim lessons! We don't have pictures of them actually in the pool since we both were in the water, but we hope to get grandma or grandpa to take some pictures for us! We did take pictures of them in their swimsuits before we left. They are so adorable (not that I'm biased or anything)!!

Happy Birthday Charlie!

Today was Charlie's 7th birthday!! Since it's been such a hard year for him adjusting to his new "dog" status, we thought we'd spoil him by getting him a hamburger, no bun, from McDonald's. After we sung him happy birthday he enjoyed his "cake"! I think he was very happy with is present this year!

The birthday boy!

Any more?!

Swim like a Fish

We are starting parent/child swim lessons today! I am so excited!! The twins absolutely LOVE the bathtub, so I am hoping they will love swim lessons as well. I'll have to post and let y'all know how they did.

In other news, Aiden now has 7 teeth!! I keep trying to get a picture of them, but it's not working out so well. I'll keep trying and upload it as soon as I capture it.

I've really been into creating signs lately, so Tiff and I have decided we're going to stockpile some and try to sell them. It's a mini-side business. Hopefully it will bring in some income and then I can continue to stay at home!! We are naming ourselves Conixon Creations--a combination of Conley and Dixon. Clever eh? So if you know anyone who wants a sign--send 'em my way!

1st Word

Addison said "mama" yesterday!! She's been making the noises, mostly when she was crying, so we weren't ready to mark it on the calender just yet. But yesterday she was just sitting there and was like "mama". It just melted my heart. It's hard to explain how just saying one word can fill your heart with so much pride and love.

Splish Splash

We graduated the twins from the whale bathtub to the big tub. Aiden and Addison LOVE playing in the bathtub together! I bought them some bath toys and they love splashing around and playing with the toys. They laugh at each other the whole time! It's just a joy to watch!

My freshman roommate and super awesome friend Jackie stopped by on her way back from Seattle with her baby Holly and husband Kieth. It was so great to see her and her family!! Addison was so excited to see Holly and was very impressed by Holly's walking skills. I think they had a good time playing. We will have to get our babies together again soon! That statement makes me feel old!!

Aren't Holly and Addison so cute?!
