Galen and Miles like to "talk" to each other these days.

Riding her pony. She asked Dad for one but he said "no" so sad.

Miles has become very mobile in the past few weeks. I cannot believe he's only 6 months and about to crawl. He's really been working hard on getting those legs up under him and coordinating the arms to move along with the legs...but hasn't quite got it yet. Instead, he's been scooting all over the place. I'll put him down one place, and a few minutes later I'll and find him in a whole different room. He's got a new nick name: Scooter. Here's why...
Miles was 6 months old on Monday. Time flies when you're having fun (or, when you have 2 kids!) The doc says he's a very happy and healthy baby boy. The past two times we've been in the doctor mentioned that Miles had great "muscle mass" and thought he was very developed for his age...whatever that means, guess it's good news!
Here's how he weighed in...15 lbs 13 oz (20th %), 26 1/2 inches (55th %)

So, if anyone has seen Ava with her hair down lately, they can attest to the fact that she had the beginnings of a mini-mullet. This was because all summer I put her hair up in pig tails or braids or a pony tail to keep it out of her face and, well, as the summer wore on, so did her hair. The girl would rip out the rubber bands like no body's business, and in doing so, broke off most of the front of her very fine hair. So, I've been contemplating getter her hair cut for quite some time.
Now, I must stop here and tell you that I think short hair is very cute on kids, but I promised myself I would never cut my daughter's hair short. This is because of the hair cut I had as a little kid, you know the one I mean, like my parents stuck a bowl on my head and just cut around that?! Yikes. I was always jealous of my sister's beautiful long pig tails and braids, and was so happy when Ava's hair grew so quickly so I could do the same to her.
So, it was with much trepidation that I took Ava to "Sprouts" for her first real hair cut. We had to cut off A LOT in order to get it all evened out and healthy again.
Though she's looking forward to growing her hair back out like a princess again, she's quite fond of her sassy new do.

It's really coming down!

Now our little man is fast asleep (in his bouncer) for what I hope to be a very long nap. I've decided not to disturb him from his slumber. Mom and Dad on the other hand, are still awake...more coffee please!
