Happy Half Birthday

Today Emma and Levi are six months old. Wait hold the phone! That is right, six months old!  I cannot believe it. I know I say that every month but where has the time gone. I feel like I will blink and they will be going to kindergarten, driving and then leaving me for college. Slow down teeny tinies! We had an eventful six month!

During your six month we:
  • went to the pulmonologist and got our first RSV shot. Ouch
  • Went to academy sports and outdoors
  • went to the Dallas arboretum
  • went to the park and swung for the first time
  • went to a Halloween carnival
  • went to play at our friend Jill's house
  • Levi started Physical therapy
  • Went to the helmet place
  • Went to a pumpkin patch
  • Went to eat at Firehouse subs
  • Nonny and Poppy Butch visited
  • Maureen and Miles visited
  • Went to Mason's soccer game
Twin happenings:
  • Both have birthmarks on the back of your neck
