Roe Family Update.....5 months!!!!

I always heard from parents that kids
grow up way too fast, but now I know it
to be a reality!!
The girls were 5 months yesterday!!!
So many amazing changes happening every
day.  I can't get over how big a blessing it
is to be a mother.  It's the most rewarding job ever!

Little miss Evelyn, cuddling with her blanket
Both girls find comfort in soft blankets near their faces

Here's the 5 month pictures.  They are making this giant
bear look smaller and smaller each month!

Pictures, once again out of order, but oh well!
I have been trying my hand at all sorts of domestic
tasks of late, and it's going rather well.
We went to Hood River and got a bunch of fruit.
I made canned peaches, peach jam and raspberry jam!
Next stop:  Applesauce!
I sewed some pillows for the girls room,
which didn't turn out exactly as planned,
but oh well!

I made little headbands for the girls,
which simply entailed sewing this fabric

My first clothing experiment.....turned out
ok but I'm pretty sure my girls are already
too big for it.  

Back to kid updates.  Both girls love the water,
but Evelyn is a little more cautious than her
sister.  She likes to feel it out before she gets
too excited

Annabelle is definitely a water baby!

I absolutely love this picture of my mom
and my little papoose!

Both girls love little furry animals that they
can pull towards their mouth and chew on.
They have made their way through my wash
a  few times already!

Back to the bear! We're all over the place

Evelyn is pretty much always happy.  If
she is sad, it's a very sad day indeed!
She's still got her sister beat in weight.  She's
around 15 lbs, but Annabelle is tailing her closely

Annabelle is also a happy baby but can
often be found staring off in the distance,
pondering life!  She weights 14 lb 1 oz!

Both girls are enjoying tummy time a little more
and they can both roll over 

We have gotten some huge giggle fits out of both
girls this month!

Evelyn, enjoying her studies!

Their eyes get bluer and bluer every day!
We're so blessed to have two healthy, beautiful girls
who are each so incredibly unique.

Random Pictures

I just found a bunch of pictures from my phone
and decided to share them with you all! 
Some are a couple of months old!

Bath time at grandma's!

Shonna and Miss Annabelle

Matt cooked us an amazing dinner
the other night.  We ate outside on the patio, and as you
can see, there was even a spot for the babes!

Love these 2!

My little Beaver fan!!

Another passed out baby

Look at his death grip on her ankles!!

Evelyn and I on a hike with the Heidrick's

Happy morning girls!!

She uses her little hands as a pacifier!

Again....always fascinated with those hands!

My grandma also has magical powers for
putting babies to sleep!!

Evelyn loves her uncle Matt

Evelyn's such a big girl, sitting up
in her chair!

My mom has the magic touch!

Cousin Wesley with Evelyn

Sleeping babies are so sweet!!

Grandma Glenda with miss Evie

Again.....sleeping babies!

I'm sensing a pattern here!

There's nothing like this!

Go Beavs!!!

We were pretty excited for Beaver football to kick off!
Slightly disappointing game for the girls' first experience!

They were dressed for success though!!!
The Roe family loves this time of year!

4 months!

It's hard to believe these little ladies are 4 months old!!
And getting so so chubby!!
We just had our 4 month appointment yesterday,
and the girls are officially not being measured on
the preemie chart anymore!!

Little miss Annabelle is weighing in at 12 lbs 10 oz!
She's 23.5 inches long!
Quite a ways from 4 lbs 3 oz and 17.25 in!

Evelyn's still got her sister beat, but not by much!
She weighs 13 lbs 2 oz and is also 23.5 inches
She started at 3 lbs 14 oz and 17.25 in!

The official 4 month picture!
This bear is looking smaller and smaller

My little Evie is the happiest baby ever!
I think anyone can get a smile out of her
and it requires very little effort! She just
started laughing and it's the cutest thing ever.
She is an easy baby.  She loves to eat, smile and hang
with Mom and Dad! She likes baths, but
always has to warm up to the idea.
I love this little girl!

Annabelle has spent the last 2 months
trying to catch her sister, and she's done an
amazing job! It seems like she's always eating!
She is also very smiley and giggly these days,
but she can also be caught quite often with
the pondering stare on her face, like in this
picture.  She LOVES water!! She loves
being naked, and maybe that's because she
knows that she's getting a bath!
I love this little girl!

Being a mom is quite possibly the best thing
ever! I am overwhelmed on a daily basis
over these two little miracles!
