Dressed up

So today is our friend Ethan's first birthday, and we got to go to his party. We weren't sure of the dress code, and since were such stylish babies, we needed make sure we were dressed appropriately.

I think our mission was accomplished. Mommy and Daddy's friend Randy came to visit yesterday. We've never been up that high ever! It was pretty awesome.

After Randy left, I got to do some laying around with my dad.

Ella just stuck her thumb in her mouth.

On a side note: green beans are also delicious.

New tricks and stuff

I know Coopy keeps telling everyone that we're getting bigger so there's lots of new stuff we're doing. Well, now it's my turn to show off what we're doing...and let me tell you, we do a lot! First of all, we like to sit in our Bumbos when we're home alone with Mommy. That way she can play with us both. We get to sing and play music and play with toys and's pretty awesome.

And Coopy's been working on some new skills. Sometimes he fills in for Daddy doing work and stuff. He likes to brag that he's a really hard worker, but mostly he just sits at Daddy's computer for a few hours and drools and then he takes a nap. That doesn't sound too hard to me.

Coopy's also moving around a lot. Sometimes Mommy and Daddy leave him on the floor in one spot, and he moves to another. It's pretty silly to watch. Like yesterday: he started here...

and he moved to here...

and here.

Then me Ella, I'm not quite as much of a mover as Coopy is...but I sure do like to stand!!!

So me and Ella, we're getting bigger you know. And since we're getting bigger, we get to eat food along with our bottles. Mommy and Daddy have been trying to get us to eat rice cereal for some time now, and so far we've thought it was pretty yucky. We told them that if that's what all food is like, count us out! We'll just be formula babies forever! Well, wanna know a secret? All food is not like cereal! Carrots are DELICIOUS! Like super duper yummy yummy delicious. Me and Ella, we can't get enough of them!

Wanna know what other foods aren't so bad? Blizzards... :-)

The rest of our weekend with 1 and 2

We had a pretty good rest of our weekend with Gramma Lea and Papa. We got to do some more snuggling and playing and dancing. And we did lots of chatting. Papa wanted to take me Coopy (or as he called me, "The Little Guy"), home with him and I almost let him...but then I'd miss my mommy and daddy too much. I did tell him though that he and Gramma Lea could come back and visit any time they wanted. Mommy took lots of pictures this weekend too...good thing we're all so photogenic.

I think we tired them out though...or maybe it was all of Mommy's pictures.

Our weekend so far

Our Gramma Lea and Papa came to visit us this weekend. We're pretty lucky that they came all this way...especially since it's so cold outside. We've been doing lots of cute stuff for's pretty great being babies with our great grandparents. We especially like it when Gramma Lea feeds us, and when Papa plays on the floor with gives us time to talk to them without Mommy and Daddy bugging.

We perfected this special...just for our Pops' birthday. Happy Birthday Pops! We love you. Now flip through the photos really fast like you would if they were in a flip might just see us roll over! Daddy said he'd try to get video of it later...if we let him.

Boys drool

Yep Coopy...I'm talking about you. Since you called me stupid, I'm going to show off all the new tricks I'VE learned and not tell anyone about anything good YOU did. So ha!

So...since I'm the bestest baby that ever there was (just ask my mommy and daddy...they tell me that every day!), I've learned lots of new tricks to show off how bestest I am. Like splashing in the tub. I really like doing that, but I won't let Mommy take any pictures. And I can sleep sideways in my crib and that's lots of fun.

Also, I'm learning how to be just like my Papa and sleep sitting up. You think maybe we'll get to do that together when he comes to visit me this weekend?

And just because I'm so cute ( daddy tells me that every day), I'm getting really good at smiling...especially with my tongue out.

New tricks

Hi guys, it's me Coopy. I've learned some new tricks in the last few looking really grumpy when I don't want my picture taken.

And how to high five my daddy (we practice that a lot...Daddy likes to high five).

I also got to practice some stuff I already know how to do, like sit at the table while Mommy and Daddy eat dinner and play with my toys.
I'm better at it than Ella, see?

Sometimes Ella gets confused when she plays with toys like this one. She thought it belonged over her face...she was wrong. Girls are so stupid!

Me and Ella, we also got to try some yummy rice cereal over the weekend. It was pretty much the greatest thing ever! We didn't really like the taste, but we sure do like how it runs down our chins!

Happy New Year!

Hi guys, Ella here. Happy 2011. I'm pretty sure it's going to be a great year for me and Coopy, especially if the last week is any indication. First of all, Mommy and Daddy got me and Coopy high chairs so we can be big kids and sit at the table while Mommy and Daddy eat dinner. Do you think, now that it's 2011, we'll get to eat dinner too?

Last week, Gramma Polly came over and Coopy hogged her. He even got to use her for a nap, just like he does with Anne! Coopy is such a baby...he doesn't know how to share like me Ella.

Because I didn't get to sleep on Gramma, Daddy rewarded me with getting to ride on his was pretty great being way way way up high like that.

Then last night my boyfriend Max, and his mommy and daddy came over. We had so much fun! We babies played together and giggled, and then we had a sleepover! It was pretty awesome. We even got to wear these great party hats...I liked mine, even though you can't tell.

I was a good girl and went to bed when I was supposed to, but Coopy stayed up WAY past his bedtime! He was bragging this morning that he got a midnight kiss from Daddy and Mommy...I'm only a little jealous.

Happy New Year guys!
