Those of you who know Adam know he likes doing woodworking. Before we even graduated from vet school he had started building a crib out of maple. It is a pretty involved project and the crib converts to a toddler bed and then a full bed. It was no small undertaking. He was almost done with the first crib when we found out we were pregnant....keep in mind it had been about a year and a half at least. After the shock of finding out we were having twins began to set in Adam immediately stated he of course had to make another crib. I said no don't worry we will just buy the other one. Of course Adam wouldn't have that. So he set to work on starting the second crib while he was commuting and completing his last year of vet school! Well as you can imagine I am very proud of him and his work. Both cribs came out so beautifully and I can't believe I haven't posted pictures sooner. Now since the girls have been born the woodworking has slowed down but Adam did manage to make me, my mom, and his mom beautiful cutting boards! I just love it! As you know he also made me some window cornices for the girls room. So this post is dedicated to all of daddy's hard work making all the beautiful things he made for me and the girls. He is such a wonderful daddy and husband. I am so blessed to have him. I must also of course say thank you to my mother -in-law for making the beautiful bedding and to Jennifer for making the curtains! Thanks I just love their room and know they will appreciate it one day too. We are doing well here. Can't believe the girls turned 7 months yesterday. They are growing up so fast. Renna now weighs 14 lbs. 4oz. and Reagan is a whopping 12lbs. 11oz!! We have just started wearing our 3-6 month clothing. Can't believe how big they are getting. It seems like their first birthday is now just around the corner...maybe they will start sleeping through the night before their birthday!! Lets hope! I am also including a few pictures of the girls. As you can see, Reagan is always moving in Renna's space trying to get attention.
