Rollin', Rollin', Rollin'

Last night both girls were laying on the living room floor in their boppy pillows enjoying a little tummy time. Alexis decided that she wanted to do some more gymnastics for us. She was crawling over the top of her boppy pillow. Most of the time once she got over the top of it, the last kick would push her onto her back laying directly on the floor. Well, the last time she did it, she managed to climb over the pillow and was still on her tummy. She proceeded to kick her legs around and was army crawling all over the blanket. I could tell that she was starting to get pooped out but she was still trying to roll over. Terry and I were watching her because when she crawls it's pretty comical. Terry said "There's no way she's gonna roll over. She can't figure out how to get her arm out of the way." Well sure enough right after he said that she flipped over onto her back. I think she kind of shocked herself that she actually did it. She did it another 2 more times last night.

Addison also continues to also climb over her boppy pillow. She hasn't totally mastered it as well as Alexis but she's working on it. Addison is more interested in toys and things that make noise than she is into being mobile. Addison will sit in her bouncy chair for an hour and just reach for the toys. I think she really enjoys the bright lights that flash and the music it makes when she hits one of the hanging toys.

Both girls are doing great with allowing us to sleep more and more every night. Our goal is to have the girls in bed every night by 11:00pm. Sometimes we get them down earlier and sometimes it takes longer. But in general the girls have been sleeping from about 11:00pm to 6:00a.m. Some days they sleep longer and some nights they get up a couple of times but in general I think we are finally starting to get down a night time routine. Thank goodness!!

More pictures to come this weekend!! I've taken quite a few this week, but haven't had a chance to upload them. Work is keeping me pretty busy, and my evenings are filled with Mommy stuff. It hasn't allowed for much time to update my blog and upload pictures.
