Party Time!

Another weekend, another one year twin birthday party. As you can see a fun time was had by all. Riley even got a little mixed up in the bouncer.

Today's Musical Education

Jack and Riley get a healthy dose of music every time I feed them. Unfortunately I think most of the music I play for them probably freaks them out. Animals comes to mind, as does Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Another poor choice of late was Remain in Light. Those were hard albums for them to digest. They are going to be such jaded teenagers.

Today's album, Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust.

In other "news," I'm looking to buy something like the outfit below for Riley. The season is fast approaching. I think I'm going to take Jack up to training camp sometime in early August. Hopefully D.A. doesn't throw a bad pass into the crowd and smack Jack in the face. That happened to some little girl last time I visited camp.

Jack and Riley will both clap on command. Sometimes. Kind of a cool trick. Though it is time for a few new ones.

Sometimes when they burp in your face it stinks real bad. That is new. Part of growing older I guess.

Other news...Jack and I like to play "Elevator Mineshaft Disaster." It is essentially a game we made up where I hold him, count to three, and pretend to drop him. Kind of like a mini Demondrop. It always gets a laugh. "Elevator Minshaft Disaster, Commence! 3-2-1- Drop, Repeat...over and over...

And, Sorry Jen, but I thought this was funny. Besides, I know you are one of the few that go to this site.

Closing in on One

Big weekend coming up for Jack and Riley. They have their first year birthday party (a few days early) on Saturday. And on Sunday they get baptized. Well, Jack has already been baptized (see blog circa Sept/Oct 08) but he will get it done once more regardless. So yeah, here are a few from today.

Jack Strikes Back!

News of the day. I saw Riley stand up with little assistance and keep her balance unassisted for about 5 seconds. I saw her do this 4 times throughout the day. We are getting close. Other news, Jack finally put Riley in her place. Good for you Jack.

Good Tackle Riley!

Hanging Out

Here is a video from earlier today. As you can see Jack crawls now, but very slowly. Riley is as fast as lightning.


Jack is now crawling with his butt in the air. No more army crawl. He also pulls himself up to a standing position now. Just like little sister Riley. My guess is that they will both start walking at about the same time. So, although there are no new photos, figured it was worth the update anyway.

Happy Riley

When she isn't busy pulling Jack's hair, she can be a very happy little girl.
