Visiting Aunt Alyssa, Uncle Shane, and Nora

We went to the Lincoln Park Zoo! We only took three pictures, but Emily and Kyle seemed to enjoy looking at the animals more this time than when we went to the zoo a couple weeks ago.

Emily and Kyle ran around Aunt Alyssa and Uncle Shane's house... getting into EVERYTHING

 Emily and Kyle loved their cousin Nora! She liked to pat her and give her kisses.

Kyle liked to play in Nora's swing...

They even shared some kisses with Aunt Alyssa and Uncle Shane!

As always... Kyle wanted to go outside often :)

Officially Done With Bottles

Emily and Kyle are officially done with bottles! They haven't even seemed to notice...

Smelling the Roses...

....or Dandelions!

Grandpa Franks taught Emily and Kyle to smell flowers. They normally take a couple sniffs and then either try to eat the flower or pick the flower. We have lots of neighbors that have LOTS of flowers and Emily and Kyle love to smell them. We normally try to get them to smell the dandelions though so we won't have upset neighbors if Emily and Kyle decide to pick or eat all of their flowers!

No More Bottles?!?!

We have been slowly decreasing the amount of breast milk Kyle and Emily get in their night time bottles. We were down to 5oz and were going to drop to 4oz tomorrow and do that for a couple days and then be done with bottles.

We changed our minds.

Tonight after bath time (when Emily and Kyle have been drinking their bottles), they didn't seem to be looking for them or expecting them. So we just went with it. And they went to bed without drinking bottles. And it didn't even seem like a big deal.

Hopefully this means we are done with bottles!

Now... I just have to stop making milk!

Monkey Slippers

This morning Emily and Kyle wanted to wear their monkey slippers. They found all four of them (Emily found three and Kyle found one) and brought them to me and sat down with their little feet in my lap. They wanted their slippers on...

And then they were just being cute :)

And getting into things they aren't supposed to get into...

They also didn't want to wear their shorts today...

Good thing their cloth diapers are so cute :)

Potter's Park Zoo

We went to the zoo with Grandma Franks, Aunt Kara, and our cousins Alex and Hailey. Kyle and Emily enjoyed riding in their stroller and watching the people... but didn't seem to care too much about the animals for the most part.

After we were all done looking at the animals, we stopped to play on the playground on the way back to the car. According to Kyle and Emily, the playground was the best part about the zoo!
