Evelyn and Olivia: Seven Months

Soooo...somehow you gals are seven months old?! You both have done a lot this month so let's get to it!

 -Evelyn is now for serious crawling! It's an army crawl but oh man is she getting on her hands and knees and rocking and also doing the plank and getting up on her toes.
- Olivia isn't quite crawling but she rolls and turns to wherever she wants to go and we also have caught her using her head to move forward and also the start of an army crawl. She also is getting up on her hands and knees and rocking as well as doing the plank. I think she's going to be fast when she does crawl because it seems like she will go straight to knees and skip the army crawl. Regardless my days just got a lot busier now that they are on the move!

- We have gotten a lot more Liv laughs and Madi has a ball making both of you girls laugh! She's great at entertaining you both and we love watching it!
- No teeth have presented still... broken record here, but I am pretty surprised with how much drooling, chewing, and noise making you've both got going on!
- Both of you are still doing pretty decent at night. You go to bed around 8-815 pm, but one of you (and it alternates which one) usually wakes up between 5-7 am and we have to give a pacifier a couple times to push you until 730 am.

- Congrats on 18 flights and seven countries (as I type this from Lisbon, Portugal!). You were pros on the flight here but a bit of a handful that first night in a new place. Let's hope you do better next week when Mommy braves Manchester with all three girls and no Daddy!
- Both of you are learning to make noises and love talking and laughing and cooing and gurgling! Olivia likes to spit and Evy is starting to do a sort of lip smack thing? I'm working on at least one of you saying "mama" first since Madi said "dada" and I think it only fair that I get at least one to say "mama" first!

Thank you so much sweet girls for being so laid-back and easy going. I joke that God knew I needed that to be able to handle having two at once-ha! But seriously, you are both amazing at hanging in the stroller, on a play mat, wherever! You are both incredibly happy and have infectious smiles and laughter! We are so blessed to have you in our lives. It's tough work having twins but we wouldn't change it for the world and feel special that we get to have TWO amazing babies at once!
