Where has summer gone?




Hey Everyone!

We know, we know, it has been a really long time since we have let you know what we have been up to. We have been having a super fun, super busy summer. Mom keeps saying things are going to slow down a bit, but so far we are still going strong. Well we finally decided it was time to start walking so once we turned 19 months we decided to give it a try. Taylee was the first to walk, but I wasn't far behind. I could only let her have 5 minutes in the spotlight before I decided to do it as well. Mom and Dad were so excited, but I am not sure what the big deal is.

We have been doing a lot of traveling this summer. Sometimes on a big plan, sometimes on Dad's plane, and other times in the car. We have been to Disney World, to the beach, to Mesquite, and any free weekends up in Driggs. We have gone to lots of concerts at Red Butte Gardens where we like to shake our "booey"!

Some of our favorite things to do is go to the park to swing and climb on the slides. We have spent as much time in the pool that mom and dad will let us. We love going to the zoo to see the "be be phant phant". We love to sing, some of our favorite songs are "ABC", twinkle twinkle little star, itsy bitsy spider, and count to ten. We love to color pictures and watch "choo choo" (Chuggington).

We hope everyone is doing well!

We will update you much sooner next time.

Love,

Elle & Taylee

Summer Update!


Hey guys! Wow it has been a long time! We have been having so much fun this summer that we haven't had much time to update you on what has been going on. We have had so much fun going on trips to Florida to see Mickey Mouse and then again to the beach to see all of our family a month later. Taylee and I love the water so much. We loved building sand castles at the beach and swimming in our pool. We usually give mom and dad a big protest when they say it is time to get out.

We can't seem to get enough of this sand!

We have started talking a lot lately. I mean Taylee and I could always communicate with each other, but we finally decided that it might be easier to get what we want if we actually started telling mom and dad what we want. Now Taylee has become quite a little show off and has been singing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" for the past few weeks. I sure wished she would learn a new song because it is getting a little old! We have been getting around pretty good with our "bum scooch" and crawling, but Taylee being the big show off that she is decided to take her first steps on the 4th of July. It looks pretty fun, maybe I will give it a try soon.

We also celebrated our 1 1/2 birthday on July 3. We had a lot of our friends over for a pool party. It was so much fun and the best part was getting to eat our chocolate cup cakes.

It just tastes better when it is all over your face.

The other great news we got this summer is that we have a new cousin on the way and his or her birthday is almost going to be the same as ours! We love you Aunt Krystle and Uncle Raleigh!
Our New Cousin!!!


Well time to go play! We will try to be better at posting more often again.

Happy Easter


We hope everyone had a great Easter. We had so much fun. We got to go on two Easter Egg Hunts and even had a visit with the Easter Bunny. I really liked seeing him, but my sister Elle was not so sure. Mom even let these ladies turn us into little bunnies. Elle went first and when I saw how ridiculous she looked, I did my best not to let them paint my face, but as you can see they won. Just wait until I get a little bigger and then I will show them who is boss!!!

Love,

Taylee

Easter Egg Hunt





Hi Guys,

We just got back from an Easter Egg Hunt with our friends Dylan and Ty. We had a lot of fun and love our Elmo baskets. In fact my sister Elle likes her so much that she decided to pitch a fit when mom put us down for our afternoon nap until she let her take it to bed. No wonder she had the nickname "DQ" a.k.a. "Drama Queen". The best part for my was being able to play on the playground after the hunt was over. I just love to swing. I think I could stay there all day if my mom would let me. Well we have another hunt on for tomorrow as long as it isn't raining again.

Love to all,

Taylee

Swimming Lessons





Hey Guys! Guess what? We started swimming lessons last week. It was so much fun. We learned to blow bubbles in the water (actually mostly just watched mom and the teacher do this) and how to float on our backs. Dad wasn't able to get in the water because he had some surgery on his knee so he got to take the pictures. We can't wait for next week so that he can come swimming with us. We have some trips to the beach coming up so we thought we should get practicing. Dad keeps telling us that our swimming pool is getting opened up in a few weeks. We think he must be crazy because it just keeps snowing here. I mean this is what we saw when we woke up this morning. We sure hope it warms up soon because we are not fans of cold water!!!

Love,

Elle & Taylee

New Place




Hi Guys! Wow it has been a while since we gave you our latest update. I just have to tell you all about this "new" place where we are living. I mean our bedroom is still the same, but we have this whole other area where we get to play. Let me tell you, the floor in this place is the best. I am the champion of scooting on my bum and I am fast...I mean just as fast as my sister Elle crawling. I don't know why anyone would really want to crawl because then you can't hold anything in your hands. I really think that bum schooching is the superior method. We did try something over the weekend that was pretty fun. Our mom and dad decided to turn our little car and dinosaur that we have been riding on into a walker. It was pretty cool to be able to walk on our own, I mean with a little assistance from the walker!



I am sure you know by now that Elle is the messier of the two of us. I will just say things just got a whole lot messier. One morning last week mom was feeding us our breakfast when Elle just refused to eat and decided she needed to have the bowl and spoon to herself. Now she thinks she is big stuff because she thinks she can do it herself.

Well, I guess it is time to take a nap. Time to get our snuggies and head to bed.
Love to all,

Taylee

STINKY POOPS!!!!!!





Hey Everyone,

Its Taylee here. As you know, Elle and I share a room, and I like a nice, uninterrupted sleep every now and then. Mom and Dad left us to stay the night with Grandma and Grandpa so they could have some dinner with friends visiting from out of town. Next thing you know, it starts smelling REALLY bad, like something died or something! I look at the clock and it's freaking 2 AM. I am suspecting its my sister and then there is a lot of commotion and new jammies, etc. Next, she starts to hurl like its nothing else. Grandma took great care of her through the night but I was totally grossed out. Just when I think its almost over, it's blowout city! I think she personally filled up the land fill in two hours! When Mom and Dad got there, she was looking mighty pale and refusing to drink.







Next thing you know, Elle gets her first trip to the ER. I'm thinking, thank goodness I didn't get what she has.....

Hi, its Elle. Guess I now know what both ends are capable of. I went to the hospital and got poked and prodded by lots of people I didnt know. Then, they stuck a tube in my foot and gave me a drink through that.

It sure made me feel better FAST! Then I got lots of stuff like popcycles and drinks. Home we came for a long nap. And guess what? Little miss "glad I didn't get it", got it. Lots more fun for tonight.


Love Elle and Taylee

On the move!




Hi Guys,

Well I guess I thought my parents life was getting a little bit too easy, so... I learned to crawl today. Wow if I only knew it was this easy to get anywhere I want to, I probably would have started sooner. I am guessing that my little sister Taylee will want to be just like her big sister if you know what I mean. Anyone want to place bets on how long it takes her to copy me? Guess it was a good thing mom bought a baby gate today.

Love,

Elle

A week of firsts. Some good & some bad...


Hi guys. We have had quite the week. First of all I got my 1st tooth, YAY!!!! My sister Taylee has 6 so I figured it was about time that I get one as well. She has quite an advantage when it comes to eating so I thought I better start catching up. The other new thing I did this week was pull myself up to stand. Mom and Dad were so proud of me. Maybe with all this excitement I will finally start to crawl. We are really just trying to give our parents a break because as soon as we take off their life is going to be a whole lot crazier.

On the bad note, I have had my first case of the stomach flu and it has not been fun. I guess the only good part is that my dad shares his G2 with me and it sure is good.

Hopefully I will get better soon and hope that my sister Taylee doesn't get it next.

Love,

Elle

Splish Splash We Were Taking a Bath...




Hi Guys! Can you believe that we are 13 months old? We sure do grow up fast. We have been having a lot of fun lately. No, we still aren't walking or crawling for that matter. I mean who really needs to do that when you have your best friend sitting right next to you. We also have parents who help us out whenever we say "uhhh!!!" So we certainly aren't going without. My sister Taylee now has 6 teeth, 4 on the top and 2 on the bottom. I am really jealous as she has a much easier time eating than I do since I still don't have any teeth.



Last week we got to go to the zoo to see the animals. It was a little cold, but we got all bundled up for the event. We thought it was pretty funny that all the animals were eating Christmas Trees. The giraffes are my favorite! Well thats all for now.

Love,

Elle
