Fun at Nana's

Nana called me the other night and invited the boys over for a couple of hours. Instead of toys, we gave them all different kinds of measuring cups, measuring spoons, plastic baggies, tupperware...and they had a blast!!

Brody positioned the giraffe toy between his mouth and the highchair so it would stay still and he could play with the rings! Pretty smart, heh?

Nana and her boys They are sitting up now...it really is a whole new world!This is the first time they have ever taken a bath together! Lets just say that me and my mom were soaked when the bath was done! Tons of splashing...they had a blast!!

Professional Pictures

Here are the professional pics we had taken of the boys today! A good friend of ours, Lynnette Jay, is a professional photographer and took the pics for us at her studio. We had such a good time and it ended up taking 2 1/2 hours...ya know, between naps and bottles and changing diapers! I told her to send me ALL of the proofs...so there are 208 pics!

Pool time baby!

Uncle Scott, Aunt Allie and Cousin Caden decided last minute to pack up the car and head to SanDestin for the weekend. They stayed at the Hilton, which has an indoor pool, with the water just the perfect temperature for introducing the boys to the swimming pool for the first time! The absolutely loved it. Brody kicked and "swam" and splashed everyone within 5 feet of him, including whacking Mommy in the face out of excitement!! Wade was more laid back, very surprising..., and spent the majority of the time belly laughing at Cousin Caden and sticking his whole hand in his mouth. (We think he laughed at Caden because he has never seen a little boy with that much hair!! haha) The boys wore their cute little sear sucker swim suits from Natalie with the little swimmer diaper underneath. FYI: the swimming diapers do not hold pee in...so you know all of the babies that were in the pool with us were just peeing away. We were swimming in it, Wade sucking it off of his hands and Brody splashing us in the face with pee water. Oh well...it was a blast!!Putting the boys under...I have read about the benefits of doing this at an early age...gets them used to the water and their natural breath holding kicks in. Wade didn't even notice that he went under and Brody looked a little shocked, but smiled within 1 second!!


Wade taking his first dive: B-man swimming All 3 baby Harrell boys All done swimming and READY for bottles!!Wade is becoming more and more mobile as the days go by...lots of scooting and rolling and already getting into cabinets! He rolled back to the entertainment center and opened the cabinet! Hi Mom, whats up? I didn't open that cabinet...it was Brody! A couple of cute pics from this past week:
Brody has started power rolling now< id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5316085919561536178" style="DISPLAY: block; MARGIN: 0px auto 10px; WIDTH: 400px; CURSOR: hand; HEIGHT: 300px; TEXT-ALIGN: center" alt="" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_5vD51zJOZrQ/ScaH-l7r0rI/AAAAAAAAA7Q/B-1JSnTZXtY/s400/The+boys+7+months+013.jpg" border="0">Stroller rides are still a favorite with the boys. Our nanny Ms. Margaret has been out of town, so I stayed home with the boys for most of last week...needless to say, we walked 6 1/2 miles one of the days and 8 miles the next! They never make a sound and love to look at everything!Our good friends, the Wesson's, had us over for burgers and hot dogs....and formula, I guess :) on Thursday night and we all really enjoyed playing with the babies!Since Scott and Allie were in town, we arranged for our very first babysitter (besides our parents or Ms. Margaret) to come in and watch the boys for the night! Here is a pic of their first babysitter, Danielle "Dani". She did an amazing job!

Last day as a 6 month old!!

The boys seem to be changing every single day...6 months old has treated them well! They will be 7 months old tomorrow! Woohhoooo!

Here are just a few exciting milestones we are hitting and little quirks:

-They both know their name, most of the time
-Brody says "dadadadadada" indiscriminately
-Wade dropped his toy and reached for Nana last night
-They both can sit unassisted, toppling over after a few...
-They are both scooting backwards
-Wade is rolling all over the place and Brody is "swimming" in place
-They are starting to stop what they are doing when you say "no", but they go right back to what they were doing!! I guess they are starting to distinguish emotions in peoples voices
-Brody HATES it when you wipe his face or nose
-Brody says "mmmmm" after almost every bite of food
-Wade is very good with his hands and can seem to figure everything out quickly

We will introduce finger foods this month and start encouraging water out of the sippy cup. I am so incredibly excited to take them to the beach this summer. Look what they have to look forward to!


Nana came over to hang with me and the boys, while Todd and Uncle Dave went to dinner. Here are some cute pics of our evening(It is getting harder and harder to capture smiles, because they immediately stop what they are doing and stare at the camera and start grabbing at it):

Pics of the boys after dinner, which consists of 2 tubs of fruits and 2 tubs of veggies...and if they are really hungry, 3 of each! They are already such big eaters and whine and whimper when I do not shovel it in fast enough. Todd and I are in trouble!!




Check out what we go through in about a week...not counting 5 bottles a day for each boy:
Mommy and B-man playing
Nana and Brody bath time Crazy peanut Wade Brody swimming See that silly look we get when the camera is pulled out! haha Wade looks confused... Wade is about to take off crawling
