So many firsts

We took the girls to their 4 month drs. appointment at the beginning of August and everything went really well. Chloe weighed 12lbs 2 oz , Jillian was 11lbs 7oz and Payton was 11lbs 4oz. An average 4 month old baby weighs about 12lbs 6 oz, so they have really caught up! Since they are doing so well, the doctor officially took them off of the extra calorie formula and started them on regular formula and rice cereal. Over the past couple of week the girls have been talking non-stop and smiling just as much! :) Last Friday, Chloe rolled over for the first time and I think Jillian will not be too far behind her. They are so healthy and we are so blessed. I have added lots of new pictures to make up for the lack of posts. I also added some recent videos of the girls talking to us and to each other.

They love the bath water

I can't get her to stop sucking her thumb. Any suggestion?

It has been a long time since we have posted! We have been very busy around here. I am officially back to work full time. My mom is here watching the girls while Mark and I work. We took the girls back to Indiana at the end of July to have them baptized and introduce them to our families. A friend of mine cut up my wedding dress and made three baptismal gowns for the girls to wear. It was a tough decision, but I figure that was the only way I was going to be able to let all three of them wear my wedding dress. They were beautiful. They were baptized in the same church that we were married in and by the same person who married us. It was a very special day. The girls were so good during the church service and the baptism. My mom and grandma put together a wonderful reception afterward. It was so nice to visit with old friends and family. We spend the rest of the week spending time with family. It was a good trip. We were both nervous about flying with the girls, but they were the best little travelers. They slept most of the trip. Here are some pictures of the baptism.
