2 Parties and 2 Months

We had a busy weekend. First of all, we went to Frisco to see Jimmy, Carissa, Brielle, and baby Brennon. Brielle and Lindsey are one month apart and Brennon and Reagan are only five days apart. It was a fun time together. Saturday, Lindsey (all the rest of us too) went to Brielle's 4th birthday party. It was at Eagle Gymnastics where Brielle goes for lessons each week. Brielle let Lindsey borrow a leotard and Lindsey loved it. She had so much fun and is now asking for her own leotard. Here are some pictures - I will apologize in advance, they are blurry. It is hard to take pictures of a moving target.
I love that last picture - that is the "I didn't take a nap today and then played really hard" look!

When we got back on Sunday, it was time for another birthday party. And yes, it was another gymnastics party. No leotard this time though. We went to Gymnastics Sports Center for Kyley's (a friend from church) birthday.
Now for Reagan. She is two months old now. And so here is the picture I took of her in our chair on Sunday (the 21st). I also wanted to add a picture of Brennon and Reagan. We have a picture almost identical of Brielle and Lindsey when they were one and two months old.

A Week of First's

School started on Tuesday for Lindsey. The morning could have gone better but unfortunately it didn't. First of all, Lindsey was bitten by fire ants on Monday. Apparently she reacts very badly to bug bites. Her feet were swollen and red and very itchy. We coped as well as we could on Monday - no shoes on her feet and we were very careful not to touch them. Well, you have to wear shoes to school and that was a very bad thing. The shoes rubbed her bites and hurt. So that made her and everyone else getting ready miserable. I was able to get a pretty cute first day of school picture though. Notice her red feet and that she doesn't have her shoes on yet!
Another first that has happened this week is Reagan took her first bottle. We don't plan on using a bottle unless absolutely necessary but it is nice to know that she will take one. It did take a while to figure out the best position for Robert to hold her. She was not fooled when he was holding her cradle-like. She did not want the bottle. Then her put her down on his legs and she seemed to like it a bit better that way. Lindsey even got a chance to feed her. That was fun to see. She did a great job but lost interest quickly.
We also are very excited that Reagan is sleeping longer at night. (And, no, I do not have a picture of that.) She is going to bed around 10:30 or so and sleeping until 5:15ish. I know, not the longest night sleep that I have had but much better than before. This has happened twice so far. Keep your fingers crossed that it continues.
