Family is the best!

So thankful for my sweet babies!
They are really becoming independent and Leah is quite the talker.  She now says a few phrases, one of them being, "I dont know".  She also sings along with songs, like Twinkle, Twinkle and The Diaper Song which Aaron made up for her.  I dont want to forget it, so I am going to write it out.

Diaper On, Do Doo Do Do Doot
A  diaper on, Do Doo Do Doot

I love how observant she is and then puts the things she sees/hears into practice.  Drew and Leah are so different, but it makes it fun to watch.  Drew is growing into a little boy, but still really loves to cuddle.  This makes mommy and daddy so happy.  We love snuggling our Drewbers. :)

Here are some pics from this month!
