"It's a rainy day in Georgia"
It has been raining here all day and I am enjoying the lazy feel of it. It's the kinda day where you curl up on the couch with a snuggly blanket and a Nicholas Sparks book and stay there all day.........oh well......I am enjoying the thought of it atleast! We still really need the rain down here after the horrible, dry, HOT summer we had so it is really a blessing to have a day like this.
On to my kiddies. In that picture above, how funny is the size of James head compared to Audrey's? I really captured it this time! Bless his heart. And below is the dreaded tummy time. They do good for about 3-5 minutes and then they are sooooo over it. Especially James. He gets really mad when he has had enough. Today was his best day though, he really pushed up high.

He is getting so big. This picture almost makes me a little sad.

Audrey has always been able to hold her head up better and higher and she just keeps getting stronger. She really enjoyed herself until she spit up and got her hands all wet!

And this is James being done with the whole tummy thing. You can't really tell in this picture but his entire head turned red 'cause he got so mad! While Audrey over there is just having the time of her life. She really got into it today. Kicking her legs up and down and she was keeping her head really steady which is a new thing. I am afraid my bobble head baby is growing up :( She has also started this blowing/spitting thing that is just too adorable. I wish I could catch it on film for you guys but every time I try to put a video on here it just wont work. And Dana even walked me through it one time. Oh well, I am only half computer literate!

And just in case you missed the eclipse last night, here is a blurry picture of it! I sat outside with Jon until 10:00 to watch this thing because I thought it wouldn't happen again for like 50 years. And then right as it is almost totally eclisped, he tells me there will be another one in 2010. If I had known that, I wouldn't have stayed up for the whole thing and needless to say I was a little grumpy at 1:30 this morning when James AND Audrey woke up hungry. Ahhh, Jon and I had a fun time anyway out under the stars. It was crisp and clear and oh so very quiet. I am gonna miss living out here when we finally move.

Well, obviously James gets tired of tummy time faster than Audrey does...he's got a bigger noggin' to be holding up and it wears the little fella out! That first picture explains it all, I do believe! LOL

And BTW, the eclipse thing could be worse. We are 2 hours ahead of you, so I stayed up until 12:03 am to watch the thing. Of course, my sleep wasn't interupted by hungry twins either last okay, maybe your eclipse story does deserves more sympathy than mine.

In that first picture, I thought to myself, "Hey, Abby and Emma had that smae outfit. How cool!" And then it dawned on me...

HAHAHA!! Did you know that you loose brain cells when you are pregnant?

What GORGEOUS chirren...if there were still Gerber babies, both James & Audrey should be one! Seriously, 'Manda, they're such precious peeps.

The pic with James plopping his little head onto the "pallet" 'cause he'd had eNUF! And, Audrey loving it...her little socked-feet up in the air.

I kept checking on the eclipse but we had some clouds obscuring our view. But, it wasn't nearly as must-do when I knew there'd be another one in a coup'la days. lol

Love your babies, love your pics, love your blogs. Just love you.
