Mia continues to add to her collection of bicycles! This one is truly cool... She is doing really well on her regular bicycle, but we find that if we ride to breakfast, she may decide she's tired halfway to the restaurant. So this way she gets to ride like a big girl, and can be lazy at the same time! This kid's got the life...

It's kind of hard to see, but Aubrey is giggling because her big sister has placed a teddy bear sized cowboy hat on Aubrey's head... Mia just loves to decorate her brother & sister, and Aubrey can't get enough of being the center of attention! Yep, those would be sweet potatoes all over her face and bib! Not so focused on her hygiene habits yet...

Wow, these two kids sure do like to eat! They have progressed into baby food, and wolf down their entire bottles, plus whatever delicious baby food Momma has selected for the day... Brandon is now over 18 pounds, and Aubrey isn't far behind at 17 pounds. He is still a few weeks ahead of her developmentally, but she's gaining quickly. We were concerned with her lagging development, but a developmental specialist examined them both last week and said that they are very large, big surprise, but developmentally right where twins typically are. So no risks or concerns thankfully! That was refreshing to hear... We are doing more exercises with them, and they will each spend some time with a Physical Therapist to ensure they get maximum muscle stimulation. With one child it's easy to spend time working with them, standing them up, etc. With twins, the focus becomes more on keeping them fed and changed, while balancing parental survival... I must say, Momma does a fabulous job! The few times that Daddy spends an hour or two alone with all three kids are the absolute most challenings times of life, both phsyically & psychologically. No idea how you ladies do it, but hats off to the Mom's of the world!! You ladies are damn impressive.

These three kids have so damn much fun together it's amazing! Not sure how we got so lucky... It's cute to watch the bonds developing, but truly amazing to see the affection that Aubrey has for her big sister, Mia! She lights up every time Mia comes near her. She laughts at absolutely everything Mia says or does, and gazes at her with amorous eyes when Mia is entertaining the twins! So sweet...

On September 17th we celebrated Mia's third Gotcha Day! This is the anniversary of the day that our perfect little angel was first put in our arms... It's truly amazing that three years have already passed by in such a hurry. Mia continues to flourish and light up every room she enters! I have no idea how we got so lucky to have such an amazing little person to share our lives with. I know one thing, our love for this child continues to grow every day, even when we think it's not possible to love her any more than we already do... She is Mommy & Daddy's angel!

The other evening Momma gave Brandon a bath and then laid him on the floor in front of his mirror. He spent about 15 minutes admiring his beauty and even inched himself forward until he was able to lick the mirror... Apparently he's quite impressed with his devilishly handsome looks! Can you blame the kid?
