Weeks 16, 17, and 18

We are finally able to get back to blogging! Our hard drive crashed and we have frantically been trying to recover our data...mainly, our baby pictures! In the mean time we have been busy! We celebrated Daddy's birthday, Aunt Lindsay's birthday, Granna's birthday, Mimi's birthday, and Uncle Kyle's birthday.

Labor Day weekend we went to Lake Travis to hang out on Grandaddy's boat. Mason and Owen loved it this time. They were a little too young to enjoy it the first time we took them at 6 weeks. We also visited Great Great Aunt and Uncle Bee and Roy in San Marcos. Daddy discovered that both babies are ticklish under their arms and they crack up when tickled! It is adorable!

Mimi, Papi, Uncle Kyle and Manda visited this weekend. Owen and Mason had lots of fun playing with everyone! The babies also enjoyed their very first Aggie football game all decked out in their maroon gear!

Owen and Mason have also been learning lots of new tricks! Mason learned how to reach for toys a couple of weeks ago. He has been concentrating on grabbing and pulling them towards him. He has also been staring at the backs of his hands like he is wearing jewelry trying to figure out how to put them to work. Both babies can roll from their backs to their sides and from their sides to their backs. It won't be long before these guys will be getting into everything! Mason's new favorite thing to do is stand up. He is able to support his weight on his legs and he giggles when he knows he is doing a good job. Mimi worked with Owen on the same task this weekend and now he is standing, too. Mimi also brought them some toys that are easy to grab. Owen and Mason both can grab them and put them in their mouth. It is so funny to see them learning how to play with toys! Mason has been trying to figure out how to stick out his tongue and blow bubbles and Owen is still working on the toy grabbing thing. They've almost got it!
