Jungle Gym

Over the holiday we had to get M &M out and burn off some energy and what a better way than jumping around at our local Jungle Gym. They love it there. They took along their cousin Sophia as well as Grandma and Grandpa Brandt that were here visiting from WI. Max's favorite thing to do there is crawl in all the tunnels. And I think we have a gymnast on our hands with Mallory. Her favorite is the trampoline; she would play on that the whole time.

With the way I post (every 2, 3, 4 weeks) I am wishing everyone new year filled with happiness, good health and love!

Winter Wonderland

Bundled the babes up and out we went! The two love to be outdoors. Mal wants to be up and walking around-althought she often tips over in her marshmallow suit, and Max just wants to sit there, put snow on his gloves and eat it.

A little update on what is new with them:

Mallory loves her beads (necklace). Every morning she gets up she goes right to her basket that has all her necklaces and bracelets in it and puts them all on.

She is saying a few words, up, momma, dada, ball, nana (banana). Loves to dance especially to Five Silly Monkeys Jumping on the Bed. She will say woof woof for dog and bawk for chicken.

The girl wanders all over the house. We will find her curled up in a ball in her closet on a shelf. She is very independent and the leader of the two. Really into her daddy right now.

Max lOVES books. Especially ones with Dogs in it. Will go through the entire book shelf till he finds his favorite book.

I think his favorite food right now is bananas. He says a few words as well: nana for banana, woof woof for dog, mumma, dad, I think he calls Mallory mom. There is a difference when he calls me vrs Mallory. If you ask him where Mallory is, he will say Mom and go find her. Says up, bawk bawk for chicken, Mawk for milk. Shakes his head for NO.

Max is still a momma's boy. He is very sensitive. A little cuddle bug with me.

They both love to sit on your lap and read books. Both love to give kisses and wrestle around on the floor with Daddy.

Had to post this sweet picture of the babes holding hands in the car. They do it quite often and I think it is so sweet! They are cracking me up these days! SOOO much has happened since I last posted.....2 MONTHS AGO! Surprised they haven't kicked me off! The twins tured 1 on Oct 15th. And I can't even tell you how much fun they are right now! I LOVE this age! They are doing new things everyday and it just amazes me how they learn so much! I am so thankful to have such two wonderful, healthy babies...and an amazing husband as well. I am so in love with all of them it just brings tears to my eyes! Again, so thankful!

Also posted a picture of the babes at Halloween. Mal was the monkey and Max was the lion. They had a ball, although they did get pretty warm in their costumes.

And finally there is a picture of them at their birthday...They had a ball. The party was a bit bigger than I anticipated. I think there were almost 60 people here. Hell of a 1st birthday party!!!!!! I have the picture backwards in order...oops. I am in a rush as I have to head to the parents for my second turkey dinner of the day. I am going to be in a coma by the time I get home.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Family vacation to Hayward

Boy, have I been delinquent! I got yelled at by Each Day is a Gift that I need to get moving on updating my blog. I am embarrassed at how long it has been. Anyway, here is a picture of Mallory on our family vacation back to Hayward to visit the in-laws. She had a blast playing in the water! Her favorite part was to eat the sand...yuck! I think she thought it was rather tastey. Max had a rough day in the water. I think it was because he took a face dive as soon as he sat in the water. It ruined his whole day! Here is a cute picture of the big boy! They aren't walking yet but are walking around furniture and behind a walker. They are hilarious! And Mal is standing up by herself and boy, is she proud! And Max loves to push her down....pretty funny! They are both saying MaMa, DaDa, Ba (for ball), BaBa. And LOTS of jibberish. I am having so much fun right now watching them interact and play together. They giggle and chase eachother all over the house. Growing up so fast!!

It's been a while!!!

Wow, I am the biggest slacker when it comes to posting on my blog. Time has just flown by these past couple months. Being back to work has really thrown a wrench in the free time. We have done quite a bit since my last post. We took our first long road trip to Milwaukee to visit with some family and friends. M&M did much better than I expected in the vehicle. Had to stop a couple times but did really well. We went up to Higgins Lake for a very special day. My Aunt Marcy celebrated her 10th year of fighting cancer. It was her 10th anniversary on the 4th of July. We had a great day on the water and just spending time with the family. Aunt Marcy is very special to us. She is an amazingly strong women with such a warm and caring heart! She comes over once a week to spend time with M&M and sometimes she makes me get out of the house for some "ME" time.

This coming weekend we are headed up to a friends cottage on Long Lake. Can't wait! We go up every year and spend the weekend laughing and just relaxing! Most of the days are out on the lake. This is the first time for M&M. Our friends have a 5 year old and a little guy that is a month older than M&M. My brother and sister in law will be there as well with Sophia. Will surely post some pics when we get back!

In the mean time here is an adorable picture I captured a week or so ago when we went for an evening stroll. M&M just had a bath, all cozy in their jammies and ended up taking a snooze!

Happy Birthday Daddy!!

I am a bit late at posting pics from Daddy's birthday party! The babies were dressed up in their party hats! (my mom made them) It was hilarious!!! They did a great job of keeping them on!
The babies are eating machines these days!!! LOVE to eat big people food! Had pieces of chicken, chunks of potatoes and peaches for dinner last night. Just afraid they won't want to eat the baby food anymore!!! They can't grow up this fast!!!!!! They will be 8 months on the 15th and I just seriously cannot believe it!!
Today we are going to the Zoo with some friends. Will post some pictures later this week!!
