Alice and Arden are 4 Months Old!

Time is flying!  This whole twin thing is getting easier, I think.
The ladies are growing up so much.  We still have a couple weeks until our doctor appointment, then I'll have some official stats.  But for now, they're both over 12 pounds.

Alice is still so smiley!

Arden is turning into a pretty happy girl.  Her fat little face and dimples are the cutest!

Sometimes we match.  They love hanging out in the Bumbos.  They "talk" to each other when you face them toward each other.  I'm so excited to see their "twin thing" develop as they get older.

We do tummy time a lot!

Alice has come a long way.  She prefers to sleep on her belly.  She's also a thumb sucker.
They can both roll from their backs to their bellies, and back again,  they love being a little bit mobile.

They got a sweet new ride as an early Christmas present.  Now we can go anywhere!  It's been wonderful!

It wouldn't be Christmas time without a visit to Santa.  Everyone did amazing!

The littles have been very good this year.

We also saw the Fairy Princess.  She's the best! Aurora was in awe the whole time.  It's definitely going to be a tradition every year.

I'm so glad I had the foresight to get both of these fox onesies for's really paying off. 

Twin 1 and Twin 2!

They made these adorable frames at school!

Christmas Angels!

Christmas is only a few days away.  And I'm told that the Rodgers ladies are all on the nice list.  
Stay tuned for updates on our holiday adventures.

Alice and Arden's 3 Month Photo Shoot

Well.. I meant to get to this the other day, but obviously that didn't happen. 
The ladies had their 3 month session at the end of November. It must be a 3 month thing.. It didn't go as smoothly as I had hoped.  We still got some good ones though!  
Here are a few of my favorites!

This smile!

As you might imagine, no smiles from this one. 

This pretty much sums up the morning.  Aurora was being difficult.  

We got some really cute ones of just her. 

And a lot of this...

I had the heavier baby..

Party of 5

Stay tuned, the ladies are almost 4 months old. And Aurora will be participating in her first Christmas pageant.

Alice and Arden are 3 Months Old!

3 months is here!  It's gone really fast!
I'm back at work, and we're trying hard to establish our new "normal".  It's going pretty well so far.  I'm glad to be back to work, and the girls seem to love going to school.  I know Aurora loves having "her babies" there during the day.

3 Months!!  They're still pretty good sleepers.  We still have the occasional early wake up call.

You can tell them apart right?  Arden, my fat girl.

Alice, my sweet always happy girl. 

We spend lots of time on the floor.  Aurora loves to play with them.  Her favorite is "tummy time"

We watched the World Series and cheered our Royals to victory!

Arden liked watching the parade on TV.  

Alice is smiles all the time. 

Arden is getting there.  She's not as laid back as Alice. 

More floor time. 

Still more floor time.  They like to look at each other.  They really LOVE looking at Aurora. 

We took the whole circus to the Zoo last weekend.  Aunt KT works there, and it's been a while since we've visited her.

Aurora had a blast!  The littles slept the whole time. 

Aunt KT showing us her animals.  She even fed the lions so they would come close so we could see them.  Aurora is still talking about it. 

Sometimes the star align and everyone is having a great time.  They're both getting really chatty, it's so much fun to watch them figure things out.  We're going to have some rollers soon. 

Next on our dance card is their professional 3 month pictures. So stay tuned.

Halloween 2015

Halloween is one of my favorites!  Dressing the girls up this year was a blast.
Aurora was BatGirl
Alice was SuperGirl
Arden was Wonder Woman
Because there is plenty of time to be princesses.

All I wanted was 1 nice photo of everyone together...maybe next year.

I got some nice individuals.  

I love it!

The skirt on the Supergirl outfit was so fluffy!  It was the only one I could find that wasn't pink.  It shipped all the way from China.  Insane.  I don't know why every girl costume has to be pink.  

Aurora with the pumpkins we carved, more pictures of that down below.  

We went Trick or Treating with our friends The Hulk and Captain America.  We were the best looking super troop in town. 

We struck out a quite a few houses.  Apparently nobody in this neighborhood knows that if your light is on, you should have candy. 

We got some candy anyway.  

Sharing our wagon with friends. 

She loved carving the pumpkins.  She liked pulling out the guts.  Mom doesn't carve pumpkins, because it's gross. 

She liked using a spoon to get the seeds out. 

We went Trick or Treating a few days before at the Sprint campus.  Our littles got all decked out in their kitty skirts. 

It was nice to get a test run on the Bat costume. 

Everyone had a good time this year, next year will be even better. 

The girls' 3 month session is booked...stay tuned.  Lots and lots has happened in a month. 

Oh yes, and, as of last night the Kansas City Royals WON the World Series!!
