The girls were just completely sacked out one afternoon for nap time in my bed and I couldn't help but take a picture. They are so sweet when they sleep, almost as sweet as when they are awake!
Isabel is such a happy baby and her sweet smile brings me so much joy. Earlier tonight I attended a visitation for a lady that I'd never met, but I know a lot of her family and I took Isabel with me, hoping that it wouldn't be weird that I had a baby with me at a funeral home. Her little sweet face brought some joy to the family that I was giving condolences to, and they seemed to appreciate a smile on a sad day for them.
Alexis just loves to make Isabel smile and laugh and she is so good at it. It amazes me every day how strong their sister bond is already at this young age. Saturday night when we went to Rolla, we left Alexis with her grandparents. Every time that Isabel looked over at the empty seat where Alexis sits, she fussed. I know that she was looking for Alexis and missing her.
My girls really love them some Sesame Street! Ross and I have been really surprised at how much Isabel watches the TV, but then we realized that we never put it on kids TV when Alexis was this young, so she never showed any interest in TV. But, man, Isabel hears Elmo and she will about break her neck to get to where she can see it! Forget trying to feed her if Alexis is watching Sesame Street because it isn't going to happen. We are trying to really limit TV time because of how much Isabel tunes into it. I'm pretty sure TV isn't good for someone so little, or big for that matter...
Hope you enjoyed some new pictures of my girls!
Isabel had her 6 month check up today and she is growing so fast. She now weighs 17lbs. 4oz. and is 27 inches long. For those of you that "know" us, according to Alexis' baby book, she weighed 17lbs. 4oz. at her 6 month check up at well, how scary is that? And she was 27 1/8 inches long. We'll see how they stack up when we go back for the 9 month check up!
