Mommy and Daddy got to witness us crawling along the floor for the first time today! Mommy held a magazine out in front of us and we were so interested in it, we crawled towards it to try and read it for ourselves!

Check out our videos of it in our galleries! Mia. Yasmine.

We had our second visit to church today. This time, the whole family went and we actually got to stay in the regular service and listen in. We were very good girls and we didn’t make any fuss the whole time! Mommy and Daddy said we were the best behaved babies in the whole church! Again, we were a big hit with Mommy’s friends from work. :)

Splish Splash!

Tonight during bathtime (which we have together on the weekends because both Mommy and Daddy can be there to help us), Mimi was making waves in the tub by slapping her hand into the water over and over again. Yaya was just trying to stay afloat!

There is a video of all the fun in the group gallery.

Today was our first visit to church. We went to Sunday school daycare while Mommy went to the regular service. Mommy’s friends were all very glad to finally meet us and we were the hit of the church! :)

Both girls are now taking their first steps (with help, of course). When an adult is holding them up, they are able to put one foot in front of the other. When holding onto the coffee table, they can also step towards it WITHOUT any help! :)

6 Month Doctor’s Appointment

Today was our 6 month checkup at the doctor. Mia weighed in at 15.5 lbs. and was 25.0 inches long while Yasmine weighed 16.9 lbs. and was 25.5 inches long. Somehow, Yasmine has pulled ahead in the size categories! More shots = yukky! :(

Both girls are now able to stand while holding onto something (i.e. a coffee table, etc.)! This is a pretty big achievement, but Mommy and Daddy are gonna have to start getting some workouts in so we can keep up with them when they start running around!

There’s a fairly large amount of new pictures and videos available tonight. 19 new pics and 3 new videos in the group gallery (including some from our 1/2 birthday party! - make sure to go back a few pages), 6 new pics in Mia’s gallery and 5 new pics and a new video (of her standing using only the table for support!) in Yasmine’s gallery. Check ‘em out!

Happy 1/2 Birthday!

Today is the girls’ 6 month birthday! It’s SO HARD to believe that it’s been 6 months already. My, how the time flies when you’re having a blast! :) Mommy and Daddy are each going to buy the twins a special gift to mark the big day and we’re going to have a little b-day party with cake and ice cream! =D YAY!

We should have a picture update pretty soon…

Also, on the list of coming events - Monday is the girls’ 6-month checkup at the pediatrician so keep out an eye for height/weight updates! :)

FYI, both girls are also doing pretty well at sitting upright on their own - we’re sure it won’t be long before they’re crawling around here and confusing Mommy and Daddy!

New Flipbook Viewer!

We added a new way to view pics and videos in the galleries. Now, when you click on a thumbnail (no matter whether it’s a picture or a video) you’ll get a flipbook style viewer window. It’s similar to the way it used to be except that there’s “Next” and “Back” options that you can use to browse through the pictures/videos that make up the page that you’re on. Right now, it will only go through the pictures/videos on the page you’re on - it could be made to go through every picture/video in the current gallery - if there’s enough resuests, we could update it to work like this. Let us know!
