All About | Jolie Grace | Mid-Year Review

Update on the plague that settle on our house this week; it is still lingering.  I was confident up until yesterday afternoon that Parker's bout of tummy troubles at 6:30am was the last of it.  Nope.  We just decided to combo the puke with diarrhea and fever.

oh my gross.
gross. gross. gross.
There aren't enough Bath and Body Works candles in this world to cover up the rank smell coming from my house at the moment.  We aren't accepting visitors.. so if you happen to ring the doorbell and no one answers, you are welcome. 

We tried snacks instead of real meals, and after the majority of the day without throwing up we tried applesauce, dry toast, and banana for dinner.  They ate more than they had over the last 24 hours, but it wasn't 3 minutes after Jolie came out of her bib was she throwing up all over the entry way.

We saved Puppy from this one.  Pedialyte diet it is, then.

I'm convinced we contracted this stomach bug from the church nursery and I pray the worst has passed and we make it through this day with happy and healthy babies!

It had been awhile since I've looked through pictures from 6 months ago - let alone a year ago.. and then I downloaded the "TimeHop" app.  I'm obsessed and eagerly excited when I am notified that my 'time-hop for today' is ready.  One thing I realize every morning.  Every single morning, ya'll.

HOW much Parker and Jolie have changed.  
A. Lot.  Like A LOT a lot. 
My twin mom friends and I were chatting about our kiddos over the weekend, and I was having a hard time remembering what it was like to have two crawling babies.  OR, even further, two immobile babies.  Even though that was just a few short months ago, time flies and I feel like I miss the leaps and bounds these two little girls cover on a daily basis.

SO- Even though I update life with P&J on a monthly basis (and really, for my own sake.  Feeling pretty nostalgic at the moment..and how many times can I share my birth story {HERE} before you guys stop reading?) here are a few of my favorites from the last 6 months or so.

Because she is older, she goes first.  And by 'she' I mean my sweetest baby A:
Jo Grace.

..and just like that- 6 months gone.

Laughter at all the right (and wrong) times.  and by wrong, I mean, when she is splattering milk everywhere, feeding the dog her food, pinching my nose as if to pull it off my face, pouring bathwater by the cupfuls all over the bathroom floor, dragging the dog by her whiskers..

Humor is her greatest trait.  She repeats (or attempts, anyway) every word we say - gaining several new words every week.  It won't be long before she's talking sentences to me in her tiny voice.  Just in the last 6 months she's gone from baby to toddler and recently - little girl.  Her face is longer, her hair is wavy & full (and blonde), and most of all, her little legs have become measurable against her sister who has always been the 'bigger' of the two.

God hung the moon with you, Jo, and I still after 18 months can't believe you are mine.
