Tonight we opened our first gifts from Aunt Sarah, Uncle Rodney, and cousin Austin over at Nana and Papa's house. We won't be able to see them tomorrow so we all got together tonight for the kids to get their gifts. The girls got us some Baby Einstein movies and a really cool ride-on/walk-behind toy hippo that "eats up" blocks. They can't play with it quite yet but I know they will soon! My camera died as soon as we got to their house so I didn't get a single picture. Luckily, R brought the video camera so we got it all!
Last night we had a little reunion with my old Girl Scout troop. It is always fun to see all the girls and check in with each other. Unforunately, two girls Diana (aka: Aunt Deenie) and Kristi couldn't make it and we missed them very much. It is so neat to see how we are all growing, maturing, and becoming women. H1 and H2 are now the newest members of Troop 127!

H1 sat up all by herself!!!
It was quite amazing. R was standing right next to us and H2 on the floor and he jumped up to get the video camera. Of course the battery was dead. Whenever they wake up from their nap I will try and snap some photos of her new skill.
We are going to be having the family Christmas party today. All of R's Dad's side of the family is coming into town. This is will the first time they will all get to meet the girls in person. The last time we all got together is was Easter and I was still pregnant. I am excited to see everyone. Only a few more hours till we get to party!

Our 6 month appointment was on Monday. The girls are growing wonderfully! They are getting HUGE. I hated having to get their shots again. It's almost worse now that they're bigger because they can really show their emotions and when they are upset...it's just awful.
25 3/4 inches
16 lbs 12oz
We have officially put the girls in their own separate cribs. The crib divider worked great for such a long time but they are just getting too big. So far they've only napped separately and tonight will be their first in their own cribs. The nap went well and I think it will be fine.

Today was an amazing day. Today the newest member of our family was born. I would like to introduce Patrick (PJ) James Hartman. I was lucky enough to be able to be present for his birth and love being able to be so close to him. He is healthy, happy and gorgeous with his head full of dark hair. He is just so precious and I am happy he is here safe and sound.
He is going to be a big part of mine and the girls lives as they grow up. Whenever his Mom (Aunt Tes) goes back to work he will be coming to spend the days with us. Whenever I show the girls the photos of him they started to smile and laugh. It's as though they know that he is here and ready to play!

All the Christmas decorations are up and we're ready for Santa!
Tomorrow is the girls 6 month check up at the doctors office. They will get their 6 month immunizations and their first flu shot. I hope that the flu shot doesn't make them sick. It never makes R or I sick...so hopefully they'll be like us. I've had a cold for the past few days and luckily the girls haven't gotten in. So far H2 has only had a small cold and H1 hasn't been sick at all. I'm glad that they didn't get sick this time. I'm not looking forward to the time when both me and the girls are all sick at the same time.
I've been slacking with the updates lately. We have taken tons of photos so I thought I would post some for your viewing pleasure.
