updates, updates, updates...

okay, so i am not the best or most consistent blogger in the world, but you'll just have to pardon me. the girls have hit such a fun stage that it is near impossible for me to take my eyes off of them lately, and can you really get mad at me for that? both girls are crawling around like crazy, following us around like puppies, and just cracking us up altogether.

some funnies:

avery absolutely loves to sit on things. she will spot something in the room, and then go give it her best shot at making it her new place of rest. for example, the other day our family-sized book of mormon was on the floor, and well, you guessed it, she crawled over and set herself atop of it. the look on her face after she accomplishes such a feat is quite hilarious. she looks at us like "hey guys, look at me way up here!" I have even caught her swinging a leg at times, as though her feet aren't touching the floor anymore.
more recently she has been our furniture climber. if we are sitting on the couch she will come over, climb to standing, and then whimper until we take her the rest of the way. what makes it funny is when she climbs to standing on a piece of furniture she can't see the top of, like our bed for example. she looks like she is holding on for dear life, and she will not let go until she sees what is on the top of that mountain. if i hear a whine coming from our room, chances are it's avery, and she's stuck:) she also loves to do this pretty funny little shoulder shrug--and lots -of them, right in a row. avery also makes us laugh during feeding time--when i put a spoon of something up to her mouth, she will give it a lick before opening up her trap to fully receive it. she's a girl who knows what she likes.

tilly is loving the crawling thing now that she has it down. for a while she was doing the army crawl, which we were fine with, but she would get so frustrated when avery would just leave her in the dust. tilly cracks us up with her "funny face" where she scrunches her nose and shows all her teeth (they both have two on bottom, and fangs on top--can't wait for those two front teeth to get here, maybe for christmas?).
tilly also throws quite the tantrums--i know, already?! she just turned one! anyway, it is pretty funny nonetheless. if avery takes something away from her, instead of taking it back, she will flap her arms and make a noise that sounds like a motorcycle revving its engine. she looks at us with the crabbiest, most pitiful face like "did you see what she just did? help me out here!" we usually do, which doesn't make a bit of difference to avery, but means all the world to tilly:). tilly also has the cutest smirk you ever did see. she will smile at us and try not to show her teeth at times, as if she is challenging us to do something really silly so we can see them. another funny thing tilly does is ram her head repeatedly into our legs if we are sitting on the couch and she wants our attention. funny girl.

we have also been giving the girls more table foods which they love! the other day we gave them a taste of a pickle, which was pretty funny.
tilly & avery making pickle faces in their cute china-wear from grandma stutz. also, here is the requested video of them dancing. avery was not so much in the groove, but tilly busted a few variations of their moves...


and, not that this is anywhere near as exciting as what the girls are doing, but we celebrated our 3rd anniversary on the 6th. jordan planned a much needed mini-vacation to slc and we had a wonderful time. however, since our actual anniversary was on a tuesday, i had these delivered to me by someone special, as a teaser:)
it was a good lead into our fun weekend...


you can never go wrong dining at the roof...who doesn't like a gourmet restaurant that's all you can eat? see that couple behind jordan, they got engaged while we were there, i witnessed the whole thing from my seat. it was pretty neat, except the guy didn't even get down on one knee. i thought that was a bit odd...oh well...
we also stayed at the anniversary inn on 5th south... it was so charming, and our room was really neat-- go here to check it out. they have a bunch of fun, themed rooms, but some were a little too adventurous for my taste--we just went for luxury, and the anniversary inn did not disappoint.
the next morning we had breakfast delivered to our door--we enjoyed this cinnamon roll the size of our faces, among other yummy breakfast foods. i would classify our weekend as delicious, fun, and a great way to have spent time with my best friend. these 3 years have been wonderful, but not quite long enough, so we're thinking we'll go for another bazillion....
p.s. a big THANK YOU to mom stutz for watching the rug rats--we love you!
