We celebrated Halloween with our PEPs group today.  The girls got dressed up in their first set of costumes – and I must say looked adorable.  They’ll be in different costumes for actual Halloween with their big cousin Maren who is coming to visit (hooray).  Stay tuned for more cuteness!

3 months old

October 26th, 2008 by Eleanor · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

The girls turned 3 months old this week.  They really seemed to have grown a lot over the last few weeks and look much more like little people now (as Allan mentioned in his posting about Lydia’s overalls).  Here are a few milestones: They outgrew their “N” (newborn) diapers and are now in “1”s, the […]

Nice smile, kid…

October 9th, 2008 by Allan · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

  There’s nothing quite like a (your) baby’s smile– and I caught Lydia in the act this evening for the first time.  (I guess she was short the market this week… [investing joke]). Social smiles make all of the work feel like it has some payback 🙂 In any case, I thought her fans would […]

We always start our PEPs meetings (more on PEPs later) by everyone sharing their highs and lows of the week.  Here are mine from the last few days: High: Over the weekend, the girls turned in some amazing sleep.  On Friday night, they slept from 8pm to 4:30am and on Saturday night, they slept from 8:30 pm […]
