Our babies are turning into big kids!

Who let our babies grow up so fast?  They are 20 months already and before we know it, they will be 2!  Their vocabulary grows every day.  Oliver is into colors right now and Vivian is into animals.  We color nearly 5 times a day.  Oliver wakes up every morning asking to "color".  More often then not we've colored before we've even eaten breakfast.  Vivian enjoys looking out the window for "birds" "geese" or "dogs".  While reading books, she will hug the book pages with animals on them.  These two babies are turning into little people.  Oliver is still our bulldozer who loves reading and watching his favorite show "Sid the Science Kid" and Vivian still loves to dote after her babies.  She chases Oliver around offering to change his diaper and would prefer to hold his sippy cup for him, as though she's feeding him, and he's happy to oblige (with the sippy cup holding at least not so much the diaper to come).  They are good at making "trades" with one another (most of the time) and they are getting better and better at sharing.  And I can't remember if I've posted this yet (for my own memory) but Vivian has now had an ear infection in each ear and Oliver is currently on his 3rd ear infection because he had bilateral ear infections the first time.  So both have had 2 rounds of antibiotics now since January.  Hopefully we are just building our immune systems! 
Enjoy a few pictures!

They would swing by their ankles all day if their daddy had the energy to do so!

Lots of squeals of delight from both!

Very serious about their dot paints.  


Bath time is still a favorite.  

Big girl with pig tails!

So cute yet not really in the mood for a photo shoot.

I teared up when I read that Vivian hugs the pictures of animals...she's so sweet. And Oliver waking up and wanting to color is super cute. They are growing by the minute & soon will be a big brother & sister. So exciting!

Another beautiful girl in our family...doesn't get much better than that. Congrats!!

Love you guys!
