|Roman and Renley love to play in the water!!|
This week has I have witnessed Roman standing for long periods of time and he is climbing on anything he can hike his little legs upon. I think this little boy is going to keep his momma busy for quite some time!!
Renley has a very different personality than Roman. She love the details of things. She can spend long period of time looking at the leaves blowing or playing with a toy that moves. She is fascinated by how she can make the toys make sounds or move. This was her week for firsts! While we were eating at Maggie Mae's Tea Room with Mom she learned to blink! It was so cute and she was so proud of herself! She also learned to wave bye...sort of! She is intrigued by the movement of her thumb and has sat for long periods of time watching her thumb bend at the knuckle. When my mom and dad were here Sunday, Grandma was trying to get her to wave bye and she started moving her thumb like she does and them moved her hand a long with it to say bye to Grandma and Papa!!
I am also glad to report that nap time and bed time are back on track for the most part. Roman loves his two to three hour afternoon nap and gets up in a great mood. He usually takes a short morning nap as well. Renley isn't much of a napper but I think it is because Roman is so much more active that her and he wears himself out playing. She usually takes an hour morning nap and then another hour afternoon nap. They both usually wake up between seven and eight and go to sleep at night between eight and eight-thirty. I am happy with this schedule. Renley goes to bed before Roman giving us some one on one time and Roman sleeps at nap time longer than Renley so I get one on one time with her, also.
A few of the girls and I ventured to Sam's Club and Wal Mart to stock up on much needed supplies and enjoyed a day out. The girls decided it was time for Roman and Renley to expirence the rides at Wal Mart. If you take a look at the pictured you will see they enjoyed these rides way more than the ones at Silver Dollar City last weekend!
It really is fun having older children as well as the babies. The older ones enjoy seeing the babies do things for the first time and really play with them a lot. Needless to say I am sure we will all feel the pain of not having them home once school begins!
I am so excited to be able to say that I am finally to my pre-pregnancy weight!! Nine months to gain it and nine months to loose it!! I still haven't gotten that pre-pregnancy tummy back but I think it will get there. It is really nice to be able to fit into all my clothes once again!!!
