Dallas and Diapers

The girls and I just spent 10 days in Dallas with my family. It was great to see everyone. Especially my pregnant sister Angie and her big belly. How nice it was to have help 24/7 and be around my family so much. My friends Betsy and Lauren came out to see us (and Betsy's mom Barbara) and my mom bought a swing for the girls. They loved swinging and swimming in the backyard.


The girls are now eating in their high chairs. They are still working on picking up food, but like to sit up and play in their new chairs.


CLOTH DIAPERS!
What a blessing. They have come a long way in 20 years. We love them and they are so easy to use. We never have to buy diapers again! They come in all different colors too, which is so fun.
Here are Atley and Avery sporting their new "diaper bottoms" as we call them because they are a tad bit bigger :)

Update on Avery - She is finally rolling over, both ways, all the time. She is such a studious baby that she was content to sit and watch her sister roll all over the house. Well, she has decided to join in the fun. She also can get on her "all fours"and rocks a little. She is not crawling yet, but soon. Atley is scooting forward more and more everyday. She will be up and crawling in no time. Also, Avery has TWO TEETH! I've tried and tried to get pictures of her pearly whites, but its hard when they are still so small. Her bottom two teeth are coming in! She is also squinting up her nose when she smiles, which is the cutest thing on earth.
Atley gives hugs and kisses. The other day Avery was crying and Atley leaned over and hugged her. So sweet.
There are always so many new things happening around here that I am glad I have a way to let everyone know. It is just hard to sit down and actually type it out sometimes.
I'll work on getting some new pics this week.
That's all for now!
