8 months old

Can these little kiddos get any more cute? I just love their smiles. Their personalities are showing more and more every day. They love playing with each other and taking toys away from one another. Isn't it funny how when one has a toy, the other wants it? They are sitting up so well this month and they are moving their legs a lot when they are on their stomach. They are happy babies and we have been truly blessed to have them in our family. We bought a home in October and hope to move in it in January. I look forward to finally setting up their own nurseries! Beckham is my great sleeper and Brooklyn has decided to just take two 1 hour naps a day. Maybe this will change... Brooklyn has started to have a little 'tude' (attitude) and does not like to do things if she doesn't want to. She also does not like it if you take something away from her. Beckham is still the happiest little baby I have ever met. We just love them both to pieces! They love their daddy and love playing with him when he gets home from work. They have started eating more solid foods and its been so fun to see them try new things! We look forward to seeing these babies continue to grow over the next few months!

We had a wonderful Christmas eve and Christmas morning! Grandma Gray gave all the grand kids matching pajamas! How fun! The kids didn't know really know what was going on but they sure were good at unwrapping presents! They got toys and clothes this year from friends and family. We look forward to next Christmas to see what they will do!

Santa came to the Ward Christmas Party at church and the kids loved it! Well they didn't cry so that was a plus.

The other day we ventured to the park to play in the swings. The twins loved it! They kept smiling and laughing the whole time! It's such a nice park too with different areas for different age groups and a water play area too!

The Kids

I love these pictures of the kids. I can't believe I'm calling them kids and not babies. That makes them sound so big!

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood

This is what I saw on my walk today which turned into a jog/run because it started to rain. I was in my normal clothes mind you and there were tons of workers around sitting in their cars watching me.


I however had to stop, pull out my phone and snap this shot. I just love rainbows!

Oh, and just a word of advice. If there are gray dark clouds outside, most likely it will start raining. I should have paid more attention. I felt like a wet cat when I got home.

I am a new proud owner of a jogging stroller and I LOVE it. It makes me want to work out and get back in shape.

I LOVE the 80 degree blue sky breezy weather we had today.

I LOVE Florida.

I LOVE that my kids fall asleep in their stroller while I get to work out and have a moment to myself.

What do you love?

7 months old

What a joy it is to be a mom to these babies. They are growing up so fast and I can't believe they are 7 months old. They are becoming more alert and their personalities are really showing through. Brooklyn knows what she wants and usually gets it and Beckham is just a sweet little hunk of baby. Because the babies are able to do more like sitting up and going a little longer between feedings, I am able to get a little bit more done around the house as well as play with them and feel like I am actually being a mom! They love going on walks outside. The best part about their age right now is they notice one another. They have for the past few months but they 'talk' to each other now. It is fun to watch. We do not see the pediatrician again until they are around 8 months so I don't have any stats.

Thanksgiving 2011

We had a great Thanksgiving this year in the Gray household. We played it some what low key this year as Clark's sister Kristin is having her baby ANY day now! It was also Layla's birthday that day! She enjoyed her cake and opening all her fun presents. We love you Layla! We love being near family for the holidays!

2 in 1 Day

What a great day of firsts happening over here!

Brooklyn wanted to take matters into her own hands (literally) and took her spoon from my hand. She even brought it to her mouth. What a smart girl!

Beckham decided he wanted to roll over onto his stomach today! He did it twice!

Outside Fun

Today we got out of the house and enjoyed some fresh 80 degree November weather! The kiddos sat on their blankets and played with their toys while mom tried to 'relax" get some pictures.

We don't get out that often unless its to the store after both babies have napped and eatin. It was a nice change of pace :)

Their First

Grass Experience

Today we ventured out to the yard to take advantage of the beautiful weather. I took my camera and hoped the babies would find the grass somewhat intriguing.

They didn't really know what to think. At least they didn't cry :)
