We have rollers and teeth!

Yes, people. They are officially mobile...sorta. Last Thursday Abby rolled from her back to her front. She is getting to where she will just move all around and move under her floor gym. And imagine our surprise when Olivia skipped the ever popular front to back roll-over and just went straight for the back to front roll-over on Monday. Yay, girls!

We knew the teeth were coming. Olivia had been positively horrid all week last week and the weekend. Little Abby does not complain about much but she was starting to just cry and cry when she would bite down hard on a toy or her fingers. Poor baby. So we were really watching for Abby's tooth to come in first. Monday I reached into her mouth to feel and the nubbies were still there. Just for the fun of it I checked Olivia's too...and low and behold there was a tooth!! I had a serious talk with Abby about how cool it would be for her first tooth to break through the same day as her sisters. So being a very good little girl she worked and worked on it and...hers broke through in the afternoon!! How cool is that?? I had my first true aww twin moment. That they got their first tooth together on the same day was just too cool for words. Olivia's is the bottom right if you are looking into her mouth and Abby's is the bottom left. I want to be sure to get this down in writing so I can see if it is the first tooth they loose as well. I didn't remember which tooth Zachary cut first and wished I had written it down. Also, Olivia's second tooth has already come in as well. She is a bit better now that they are through but still super fussy. I tried to get pictures of the teeth but all I got was their little tongues in the way. They were not having it!

I am kinda all over the place today. I can't tell you how many times I have had to go back and fix spelling and typing errors so far.

Why are Wednesday's so hard? Monday I am rested from the weekend and Tuesday and Thursday is when my mom comes and helps so that leaves Wednesday and Friday. Last Wednesday was hard, too. But I am about to go for a walk with the girls. It is an absolutely beautiful day today. 75 degrees and little wind. I am actually wearing shorts. For once, I am thankful for the Texas weather. If I have time after my walk, I will do Way Back When-esday, but again, who knows?

When they get their first teeth you never get to take pics. Their little tongues are constantly rolling over the teeth and you just cant see em. Can't blame em though, that must feel so weird in there.
Yay for the milestones!!
