One boy, One girl

This week when we went to the babies two month appointment, the doctor commented on how different Ashton and Mary Seegars's personalities are. Of course, Gash and I have been in tune to this fact since day one, but it is amazing to me that Dr. Chea, who has met them a grand total of three times, could pick up on their differences.

Ashton could not be more of a boy. He is already rough and tough and spends a good hour grunting after he finishes each meal. When Ashton is hungry, the whole neighborhood knows. I mean the boy has a set of lungs on him and when it is time for a bottle he puts them to use. He is definitely Mary Seegars "big brother" weighing in at almost four pounds more than her and meeting developmental goals a few days before she does. In fact, he is smiling pretty regularly now which is so much fun! He is also a mamas boy, and loves to snuggle with me giving me lots of coos and sighs that make my heart smile. I love how his little personality is beginning to shine through and if he keeps going at this rate, I am pretty sure we will be attending quite a few sporting events in the future :).

Mary Seegars, on the other hand, is all girl. Her little movements are so dainty and she usually waits patiently for her bottle amongst her brothers cries. She is so much smoother in her movements and often folds her little hands and points her toes straight in the air like a ballerina. Although we have tried to tell her that skinny is not in for babies, the girl is already watching her figure and only fits in newborn clothes at almost ten weeks old. She is truly our little peanut; although her eating has picked up in the last few weeks which makes us really excited. Now if Ashton is a mama's boy, Mary Seegars is definitely her daddy's little girl. She is so content in his arms and stares up at him transfixed every time he holds her. I am certain she has him wrapped around her finger and I am a little worried that he has already promised her a pony and unlimited use of his credit cards. But even though she is a little priss pot, she could not be sweeter and I could not be luckier to be her mom.

I definitely see God's handiwork in both of my children and I am amazed each day by His creation.

Two month stats:
Ashton: 11 pounds 12 ounces (38th percentile), 22 1/2 inches long (26th percentile), with a 15 inch head circumference (21st percentile).

Mary Seegars: 8 pounds (.54 percentile), 21 inches long (3rd percentile), with a 14 1/4 inch head circumference (5th percentile).

A perfect example of our little angels personalities at feeding time :)

Ashton is all smiles these days!! (well, at least when he has a full belly)

Snuggles with his mama . . . 

Mary Seegars had fun with her new bff

First shots at the two month appointment (mama cried more than the babies)

Twin snuggles. . Double the fun!

On Friday, we went to Boo in the Zoo

our buddies came too!

We saw Lions, and Giraffes, and Elephants and more!

It was a little crazy but we were a hit as thing one and thing two!

After the craziness of Boo in the Zoo, everyone needed a drink!

We took over Coronas with seven kids in tow . . .

On Sunday, we went to our first church service and we did GREAT!!

After church, we joined our church buddies for Blue Grass and Bar-B-Q, so much fun!

Then, Uncle Buddha came to visit and we loved snuggling with him!

We are having so much fun during our favorite time of year!
