Lake Babies

The whole Meneley family had a great Memorial Day weekend filled with fun festivities with great friends but the icinig on the cake was taking the boys down to the lake for their first dip! They loved it (to be read they didn't scream at all) so we're hopeful this is a sign of good things to come. Here are just a few of the great photos we took.

Here is the link to the May 2011 photos.

4.5 months update

PJ and Reas,
4.5 months and counting. You are getting so big. At the last weigh in PJ (in blue) was 13.2lbs and Reas (in yellow) was 14.6lbs. You are smiling all the time now (encouragement that you already think Mom and Dad are hilarious). As a gift to me for Mother's Day you started sleeping through the night. We are constantly amazed at all that you are able to do. PJ, you love to lay under the activity mat and reach for all the things dangling above your head. Reas, you are content to watch your brother push those things around. You both are starting to be more vocal which is good and bad.

You spent your first Easter at Grandma and Grandpa Reas' house and had a great time. They got each of you a book that they read and recorded and you love them. You always pay attention when those books are out. You also loved the Peeps grandma got for you... or someone did.

Grandma and Grandpa Meneley came to visit you for a week and you were so good for them - this really helped because they were running out of things to brag about for you :).

You are also very into each other. You will sit in your Bumbos and have a staring contest or hold hands on the activity mat. It is so fun to see your brotherly love begin to take hold.
We love you both so much and look forward to a great summer with you!
Love, Mom & Dad

"Don't lick the babies"

Having children and having a dog has been an interesting adventure. When MJ and I found out we were having babies we knew that it would be an adjustment for us but we didn't anticipate how much of an adjustment it would be for Kaia. For the most part she loves the babies and doesn't bother them too much but we often find ourselves saying "Don't lick the babies." Kaia is also a big fan of formula and is always hovering during feeding time in hopes that she will reap the rewards of a spit up. I hope Kaia is ready for these two to grow up and terrorize her.
