2 years and 7 months...

These pictures were supposed to be Abigail's 2 year and then Ada's 6 month pictures but of course I let time get away from me again and they have turned into Abigail's 28 month and Ada's 7 month pictures! One of these days I'll get caught up in life!

These two girls are such a gift to Joe and I! There's so much laughing and playing and happiness with these two (of course there's an even amount of whining/crying also!). We have daily tea parties, coloring contests, fights and hitting, eating contests (Abby always wins!), there's playing outside on the swings, driving the little pink car, pony rides (and I wonder why my back hurts so bad), and so much more! It's always a party!! 

At just over 2 years old, Abigail is weighing in at a whopping 27lbs and is fitting into 2t clothes perfectly. She's rambunctious, wild and a free spirit but can also be sweet and cuddly when she wants. She's very vocal and demanding (which we're working on!). Right now, the cutest and most entertaining thing she does is when she gets mad/frustrated, she does 'blowing exercises' to calm down. She'll start taking deep breathes and will tell you she's taking them and then let you know she's "happy now". It's a challenge trying to get a strong-willed, highly emotional 2 year old to control herself sometimes :)

Ada is still just as sweet as can be. She too, definitely has a temper and knows how to get our attention! At 7 months, she's weighing in at about 12lbs and fitting into 3 month clothes with a couple 6 months here and there.  People often comment on how tiny she still is and they often think she's around 5 months old!

They are gorgeous!!!! Did you take the photos? I am assuming you did. Great job!! What did you use on the floor for the reflection? Plexi-glass (is that how you spell it)?? Great idea that I may have to use.

BTW, I get my videos so big by unloading them to photobucket then using their code to embed it into blogger. Give it a try.
