Our 18 month old is an addict...should we be worried?

I am trying my best to get some pictures of Eva to post, but the silly girl has her days and nights completely mixed up and I can't keep her awake long enough to eat during the day, let alone to show off for a camera. I did my best, but this was all we got for today.
This was taken on the way to church, and needless to say, she fell asleep in the car on the way. Someone needs to inform her that the days are much more fun to be awake during ;)!

Aubrey's favorite thing in the world right now just happens to be Blue's Clues. I know we shouldn't condone TV watching, but hey, if it postpones getting her a real puppy, then bring on the Blue' Clues!

We're back!

After what seemed like an eternity we are back up and running with internet service. We closed on our new house in St. Charles, MO two weeks ago and love it here! We took the girls to the St. Louis Science Museum today and Aubrey had a blast! Eva slept in her sling the entire time, so I'm sure she enjoyed it as well. As far as pictures...they will be coming soon. We have been so busy with the unpacking and sleepless nights that I admit I have been neglecting my camera since we moved here. I will put on some pictures from our outing today, but there arent' any of Eva since she was all snuggled up and you couldn't even see her sweet face. I will take pictures tomorrow and upload them so you can see how much our little Eva has changed. Once I get things situated around the house we will put up some pictures so you can see our new living arrangements! We have so much to be thankful for, and are so grateful for this time in our lives. We got our house in VA on the market and the first person to look at it made an offer. Granted, it wasn't what we were hoping for, but with the way the market is we were able to negotiate a price that we were both comfortable with and look forward to closing on Sept 26 (*fingers crossed*)! Both our girls are growing so fast. Aubrey had her 18 month check up and is weighing in at a whopping 22 lb 15 oz (25th percentile). She is in the 95th perentile for her height, so we have a tall slender one on our hands (we have no idea where she gets that from)! Eva had her one month check up and is also gaining weight. She came in at an astounding 9 lb 10 oz, which means she is gaining roughly a pound a week! Her arms and legs are chunky and her double chin grows every day :)! All in all, life is great, and we're grateful for such wonderful family and friends to share it with!

This was the shoe from the tallest man in the world. He as almost 9 feet tall and wore a size 34 she by the time he was 16!

A special thanks to Maryn for the dress Aubrey is wearing. I know you sent it for Eva to wear next summer, but I thought it was TOO adorable to keep in a closet for a year, and it fit Aubrey perfectly (and looked so dang cute on her)! Thanks for keeping our girls stylish :) Maryn!

In honor of the Olympcs, and in preparation for sept. 25...we bring you Dwight Shrute!
