Sooo, while we were in Granbury, Max and Emma took their first dip in the pool! They looked so stinkin cute in their swim suits and floaties. I was a little worried about how Emma would react to the pool, as she hasn't been a big fan of baths in the big bath tub - but she was just cold chillin like the diva she is the whole time! And as expected Max was just kickin away and loved it! I cannot wait to get these kids in swim lessons - I think we are going to look into lessons at the country club this summer :) One of the best parts of the reunion was finding a babysitter for the summer!!! Gotta love cousins home from college :) Ahh, dinner AND a movie at last :) Emma was hammin it up the whole time, always the center of attention, impressing everyone with her singing talents, addictive smiles and giggles. And we were so proud of Max - he went the whole weekend with no stranger danger meltdowns!
In other news, we went in today for Max's first appt since getting his helmet, and was very excited to learn that his head has already grown! I really hope that it continues to grow and fill out so we can cut the time in the helmet down. Whew does his head and helmet stink! We are experimenting with different shampoos to find one that helps the stinch go away. Max is also back to talking up a storm - no mama or dada yet - but I have a feeling it's coming :) So far he has mastered eating from a spoon, rolling both ways, and almost mastered sitting unassisted. Emma has really surprised us lately, it seems that she has found her appetite again, I really hope that it is not a fluke or temporary growth spurt. She has finally mastered eating from a spoon and apparently has hollow legs - this girl can just eat and eat and eat! She has also masterd rolling both ways and sitting unassisted. Thankfully, no signs of crawling yet - I don't think I'm ready for that yet!
Here's a couple of pics from the last couple of weeks (I still need to take their 7 month pics - oops!)
