Clapping, assisted walking, and teeth…oh my!!

Lots of stuff happening for little miss Finley! In just a few days we noticed 3 teeth sprouting, she started taking a few steps with push toys, and is now clapping!

The 2 bottom teeth and one top are making an appearance!  I am gonna miss the gummy grin!

We’ve got World Cup Fever

Grampy travelled to Argentina recently and brought back these precious soccer jerseys.  So we decided to sport them today as we watched Argentina play. We also practiced saying GOOOOOAAAAAL!!!! and they thought it was pretty funny!

Nine Months

So it is close to impossible to get a good pic of these squirmy worms together!

 IMG_2956IMG_2960 IMG_2959

Gonna try again when I have some extra hands to entertain!


what’s been going on:

  • You love to make each other laugh.
  • You are enjoying pool time!
  • You both want to feed yourself finger foods. Some new foods you have tried and like…cottage cheese, blueberries, beans, pancakes, peaches, kiwi,muffin.
  • You are both crawling all over the place and exploring! Today you knocked the dog bowl over and got ALL wet!
  • Still no teeth!
  • You both “dance” when you hear music!!
  • Every time we go in to get Finley after naps or in the morning she is standing in her crib! She loves to stand and pull up on everything!
  • Zane is pulling up to kneeling on everything and will be standing soon!
  • You love our walks in the morning in the little red wagon
  • You are taking  2 naps.
  • You are already starting to grab toys out of one another’s hands!
  • You want to play with everything that is NOT a toy…camera, remote, mommy’s shoes, dog bones, phones, etc.

A couple of bookworms…

So it starts off with a nice quiet storytime…

Finley: “Here Zane let’s read this book…”


…and this one…”


“… and these three….”


“…oh and this one…”


Zane: “Hey, how come I gotta clean this up?…hmmm!?! Where’s Finley”


This is a recurring event…about 3 times a day!

Father’s Day

We had a nice quiet Father’s day last weekend! Finley and Zane gave daddy some Star Wars pancake mold and I attempted made some Star Wars pancakes with a side of eggs and sausage! 

Oh and Finley and Zane had their first pancake and loved it!

Stars in the making…


This afternoon we had an exciting trip to Izzoz Tacos, a taco trailer here in town! AMOM (Austin moms of multiples) got word that a Houston MOM’s (Mom of multiples) family business was going to be featured on the Food Network so we decided to get as many sets of twins out there as we could! Despite the heat, many moms with their sweaty little ones headed out to show our support of other MOM’s and support a local business!

“The word Izzoz is our version of the Spanish word mellizo, which means fraternal twins. There are 6 sets of twins in the Izzoz Family (so far). Izzoz Taco trailer was on the set of the movie The Alamo &  at the '96 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. At 42', Izzoz is the largest food trailer in Austin. Tell us if you find a bigger one! OH---one more thing...Our name is pronounced "E-zoes"  NOT "Is-oz" or "Is-oh's" –From Izzoz site

The food was great! We will definitely be a frequent diners! The atmosphere did not disappoint either…I could stroll up to a table with the BOB and when F & Z get a bit older they can walk around and play on some toys that are always available!

I don’t think that the show will be aired until the Spring, but you know that I’ll let you know when it does…we were interviewed and they got momma taking a big juicy bite of her yummy shrimp taco!

It was great to meet other MOM’s too!

Tying the knot!!

Congratulations, Uncle Ryan and Aunt Jan, on your engagement!!! We are so happy for you both! 


Where’s Finley?


Oh there she is…I guess this is her way of telling me that I may need add some flavor to her meals!


Bumpin’ up and down in my little red wagon…

GG got this wagon a while back and I thought it was time to assemble it! We have been taking it around the block for a nice leisurely evening stroll! They are lovin’ their lil’ red wagon!!!


Thank you GG!!!

Water babies!

We enjoyed more pool time at Uncle Ryan and Aunt Jan’s pool! They looked so cute in their suits again and really enjoyed the water!

Here they are helping each other out to get ready for some pictures…

“Finley, you got a little spit up on your face…let me get it for you.”


“Here let me get the drool on your chest!

Colin (and Jolyn) came over to play on Friday…it was great to see Finley chase after him! I think that Zane felt a littleleft out so on Saturday he figured out that he could really get moving! Now he is on Finley’s tail! It is so precious to see them crawling around together and exploring our little house!

Finley was showing Colin the “farm”!


Colin has the cutest little laugh!


Thanks for coming to play! I hope we can do it again soon!

Zane’s hidden talent…


This is how Zane sits up from crawling! Just makes me laugh!

Splish splash!

With the temperatures rising, I had to find something for us to do outside so we would not melt away.  The Perez Pool is now open! Too bad momma can’t fit!

I sure needed to take a dip after changing diapers, setting all this up, then changing diapers again! Whew!
