Weeks 22 and 23

Mason and Owen have been busy guys! Mason found his feet, they are both rolling over now (from tummy to back) and are getting really good at tummy time. They can both shift their weight while on their tummies to raise an arm and grab a toy. They are inches away from rolling from back to tummy. Mason and Owen both recognize a bottle because when they see it they start to whimper. If it is brought close enough they reach out and grab it and put it in their mouth.

We just got back from a trip to Lubbock to visit Mimi and Papi and go to the A&M game. Owen and Mason went on their first plane ride and they did great! We didn't get too many dirty looks! I think it was more tiring for Mom and Dad because we had to triple concentrate on the babies to make sure everything went smoothly, was safe, and quiet for the other passengers! We made it though! While we were in Lubbock we visited a pumpkin patch to take some pictures. They came out great! Later that night we went to a cornfield maze and took the babies with us! They were troopers but only through the first half of the maze. Mason decided he did NOT like it! We'll try again next year!

Owen Eats Cereal

This video is from a couple of weeks ago when Owen tried rice cereal for the first time. He seemed to like it pretty well, although he didn't know exactly what to do with it once it was in his mouth.

Mason Rolls Over

Mason rolled over from his front to back for the first time the other day. Enjoy the video.

Weeks 19, 20, and 21

Weeks 19, 20, and 21

The last 3 weeks have taken us to San Antonio, Orange, back to San Antonio, San Marcos, Wimberley, and back home again. In the mean time, Owen and Mason have gotten cuter and cuter.
Mason and Owen have had a big job this week. They helped Great-Numna celebrate her 85th birthday and they helped cheer up Great-Great-Aunt Bee after losing her husband, Roy, of 67 years on Monday. They did a great job!
Owen has really started reaching for toys now. This skill has been in the works but now you can tell him, "here, hold this" and he'll take it from you (and put it straight in his mouth). He has gotten so good at reaching and grabbing that he has reached for Mason's face a few times and grabbed his pacifier.
A few days ago I walked in on the babies laying on the floor together just staring at each other and cooing. They were having their first mini-conversation and it was precious! I wonder what they were talking about!
We let Owen try some rice cereal last weekend (Mason was already down for the night). He seemed to like the taste but he didn't quite know what to do with it after I put it in his mouth. He'll figure it out. The next day, Mason held his bottle all by himself for almost the entire feeding! My life is about to get easier!
Yesterday (9/30) was a big day for Mason. I noticed that he was really watching my mouth when I was talking to him. I stuck my tongue in and out at him and he stuck his tongue back out at me! He also rolled from his front to back during tummy time last night. He loved his new trick that we couldn't keep him on his tummy because he would flip right back over!
