2 Months Old

We are 2 months old today! Mom and dad said time is flying by too fast, but they enjoy watching us grow up too. We are now bigger than the cabbage patch dolls (refer to November 4 post). Lily is officially out of all preemie clothes, and she is almost too big for some of her newborn PJs. I am now wearing mostly 0-3 clothes since I'm so long and lean. My big milestone for the month was rolling over at 5 weeks, and I haven't stopped since. Lily is gaining some interest in this skill as well, but she doesn't understand that she has to pull her arm underneath her for it to work. I can't tell you how many times she gets her lower body over, but her shoulders and head just won't go. Mom and dad said her cheeks are holding her down, but it is obviously her arm. Another big accomplishment for both of us is that we are sleeping for longer periods now since we are eating more. For some reason mom and dad seem to be so happy about this?!?! We are also starting to smile some, but we still only do this for special occasions.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! We thought we'd share a few photos from our exciting Christmas Eve and Christmas Day celebrations. We spent Christmas Eve with our friends at Uncle Larry and Aunt Pam's house. This morning we opened presents from Santa, our mom and dad, our grandparents, our cousins, and other family and friends. As you can see we received lots of cool stuff to wear and play with, and we got a few ornaments to decorate our tree with. A HUGE thank you to everyone for all of our gifts! Other than that we relaxed in our cool PJs from Great-Grandma Ruiz (thanks!) while mom and dad had breakfast. We hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and mom and dad want us to tell everyone to stay warm!

Visiting Santa

Mom took Lily and I to visit Santa today with our friends, Donna and Landen Tow. Thank goodness she got a picture of us with him, because we both slept through the whole thing. Santa was able to figure out what we want for Christmas though, and he let mom know that I want an Xbox and Lily wants a cellphone.

Decorating the Tree

We discovered the best thing about Christmas so far, lights!!! We absolutely love Christmas lights, and mommy and daddy provided us with quite a show while decorating our Christmas tree. Mom and dad said that we were so in love with Christmas lights that they are thinking of decorating our crib just to entertain us. Too bad they won't actually do it.

Ryan Rolls Over!

I performed a spectacular feat tonight! During tummy time with mom, I without warning, rolled over! Mom was the only one who saw it, so of course I had to perform my trick again for dad and grandma. It took some effort, but I did it all by myself 3 or 4 times. Dad tried to get Lily to roll over too, but I think she was either too hungry or tired to care. Now that I have that milestone checked off, watch out world, here comes trouble!

Out for Dinner

We had another outing tonight to have dinner at mom and dad's friends' house...or as we call them Uncle Larry and Aunt Pam. We also got to meet their dogs, Ruby and Shera, for the first time. We think Ruby really liked us, although it was hard for her to understand that we aren't big enough to play yet.

We haven't had too many visitors at home yet, but when we do mommy likes to get our picture with them. We'll continue to add pictures as more and more people come to visit us.
