August just flew by! We were so busy trying to enjoy the small bit of summer warmth that finally came our way! We went swimming at Ron and Donna’s pool and Aldona’s pool each a few times! The babies love to splash in the water, and don’t even seem to mind if its on the chilly side. This year, the girls could touch in the shallow end at Ron and Donna’s! Max and the Kutz family even joined us there once and the kids all had the greatest time! At first they were still timid and clung to their tubes and water wings, but by the end of the day, they were jumping in all by themselves!

The babies both got their first teeth this month – not even a week apart! Tthey really weren’t too terribly cranky about it! Nora also discovered she can roll from her back to her front…and does it all the time, every time she is laid down! Stella is so funny, at night she will cry for me occasionally, then when I come in the room, she immediately smiles and starts laughing excitedly! Nora also finally started opening her mouth to take a few bites of oatmeal. In the past I had to ‘trick’ her into sneaking it in her mouth! Uncle Felix also came by for a visit and brought the girls coins and a coin purse from the Philippines. I managed to keep track of the coin purses, but where the coins are now, is a mystery. We also had a baby shower for Melissa Syvanto...to our surprise, I was heading to meet her baby only a few weeks later - a whole month before her due date! Baby Naomi is doing great of course!

Ingrid and Helen and the massive zucchinis!
My kids are amazing, they like zucchini...and
cucumbers, and lettuce, and broccoli, and carrots
and green beans and macaroni, and nerds.
