Mr. and Mrs. Wrotny!

We had a great weekend! One of Matt's sisters, Emily, was married on Saturday! The family has been looking forward to this day for awhile! Emily was BEAUTIFUL!

The ceremony was very special, but the greatest part was seeing the joy on both of their faces! Gary and Emily are off to Europe, and we can't wait to live closer to them! 

Matt's Mom and Kate (teething much?!?)

The twins were spoiled all weekend, a lot of attention, holding, and meeting new people! They did GREAT...despite being in the midst of cutting teeth! My mom came from Jonesboro to help with the girls! We couldn't have made it without her!

Happy 6 Months!

Happy 6 Months!

Kate and Maddie have seemed to grow up FAST in the past two weeks. They are becoming much more mobile, interactive, and so much fun! The girls had their first colds. It hit Kate a little harder, and she ran fever a few days. It didn't mess with their sleep and only lasted about a week! ;) Unfortunately, their first Easter was spent at the house due to their colds, and I got strep. There is always next year! 


-No idea on weight...but you sure look big to us! ;) We go in this week for your 6 month well check
-Size 2 diapers, 3 at night
-3-6 month cloths are fitting pretty well! Love the new wardrobe options! :) 
-Giggly, smiley girl lately. You laugh and smile sometimes when we just look at you!
-Started "talking" to the dogs and really watching them
-"Strangers" have worried you a few times this past month...the full on cry with bottom lip out happened when you saw someone that caught you off guard
My mom and Maddie
-Much to our surprise you haven't mastered rolling from back to belly...The past few days you have done it about 5 times, but get really frustrated because you can't seem to get it every time. You are trying hard, and I bet by the end of the week you will have it down!
-You inch worm, spin in circles, and your favorite is to "swim" on your belly...
-I started putting you on your belly for naps which seemed to help! But, then you started waking up in the middle of the night wanting on your belly...I probably should have just left you to figure it out on your own, but who wants to do that at 4 am! Not me! So now you sleep on your belly all night too! 
-You aren't far from sitting up...You are doing much better with a Boppy behind you. 
-Reaching and grabbing for everything
-Love the game "Where's Maddie?," Exersaucer, and playing with your feet (you have recently found enjoyment in sucking on your big toe!)


-Seemed to get much longer this month...we will see! 
-Moved up to size 2 diapers
-3-6 month clothes...but still pretty big through the middle
-You have a cute, little dimple on your left cheek! 
-Still our little want to talk while you eat, when you play, and you talk most to Maddie when we aren't in the room.
-You have a pitiful whimper when you are tired or sick
-You are ticklish...and we get the best laughs out of you tickling your belly
-Much to our surprise out of the blue you started rolling from back to belly in your crib. Now you roll ALL prefer your belly even during play and almost, always roll over when I lay you down
My Dad and Kate before a walk
-You have started to tuck your knees up some and "inch-worm" to get things you want. Sometimes you get a little confused and just lift you legs high in the air
-I think sitting up is a little further away for you...but you do surprise us! ;) It took you a little longer to get good head control, so we know you will get there. Your fascination with your feet causes distraction!
-Reaching and grabbing for everything
-Love this Pet Tails book that crinkles and has tails on it, Exersaucer, I started singing "Soft Kitty" from The Big Bang Theory one day to calm you LOVE it and giggle every time

Still sleeping from 7:30-7:00/7:15. Kate sometimes wakes a little earlier and just babbles in her crib for a bit. Naps were AMAZING while they were sick! ;) It has seemed to help them sleeping on their bellies, but we still have our hard days! They nap(or we hope they nap) from 9:00-10:00/10:30, 12:30ish-2:00/2:30, and take a short little cat-nap in the afternoons when we are running errands or on a walk. Maybe one day our good days will outweigh our bad ones...:)

Eating continues to go really well! Thank you Lord! :) They "want" to eat and start fussing as soon as you put a bib on. The girls eat 5 times a day, but I'm going to go down to 4 once we get "meals" going. They are ready! I'm hoping we can wean off the Prevacid here in the next few months. 

The next few months will fly bye, and before we know it Kate and Maddie will be ONE! It is going to be a crazy, busy few months: selling our house, buying a house, and moving back to Northwest Arkansas!

The moments.

Moments of pure joy...when you fall on your sister and can't stop laughing...
