BC: To Be Continued in 2014...
FC: December | January | 2013 Time Flies...When You've Got Twins! | July
1: 2013 Time Flies... When You've Got Twins! | This year flew by! It's hard to believe at the start of 2013 Emma and Brendyn were not even four months old. They were sweet, little, happy babies who laid around and smiled. It was amazing to watch them grow and learn new things as the months went by! From sitting up, to crawling and saying new words, each and every day they amazed us! By the end of 2013, Emma and Brendyn were curious, little people who were taking steps, exploring everything and saying so many words-not to mention all the dancing they were doing! This year Daddy started the year having to travel to Chicago each week, but by summer he received a promotion which kept him in Michigan full time! Mommy also went back to work full time in September. She got a new job at Hillel Day School teaching first grade. Emma and Brendyn started at the JCC inAugust when they were 11 months old. In 2013 we visited Atlanta, GA, Laguna Beach, CA and Singer Island, FL. That meant three round-trip plane rides for Emma and Brendyn!
2: Happy New Year 2013 | Movie Date! | Mommy and Daddy celebrated the New Year at home with Emma and Brendyn. They were lucky enough to sneak out on New Years Day to see a movie, thanks to all the local grandparents! | January
3: Mommy and Daddy's 1st big night out after Emma and Brendyn were born was for the Black Tie Event at the Auto Show. Mommy and Daddy had to get all dressed up. Mommy couldn't remember the last time she got so fancy! | Auto Show Black Tie Event
4: Happy Valentine's Day! | Mommy LOVED to play dress up with her little dolls! She found these cute onesies on Etsy and had fun with a Valentine's Day photo shoot! | February
6: SWIM LESSONS | We began taking Emma and Brendyn for swimming lessons at the JCC at 6 months. They seemed to enjoy the water and didn't mind getting dunked. After a month or so, we decided to take a break because the timing of the class was falling during nap time which led to crabby babies. | March
8: Happy Passover
10: We went to the Zoo for the first time as a family when Papa and Grandma visited from California. It was a little early for Brendyn and Emma to enjoy the animal since they were only seven months, but it was a nice, sunny day. | April
12: Atlanta, Here We Come! | Emma and Brendyn's 1st plane ride! | We traveled to Atlanta Mother's Day Weekend for Cousin Chuck's wedding. Emma and Brendyn stayed at the Gotz's house while we went to the wedding! | May
14: Summer Fun in Laguna Beach | In July we went to Laguna Beach to visit Papa, Grandma and Aunt Emily. We went to the beach, the pool and frequented the dog park. Emma and Brendyn were not big fans of sand. | July
16: Happy 1st Birthday Emma and Brendyn | September
18: HAPPY HALLOWEEN | October | Brendyn and Emma were dressed as a fire-breathing dragon and princess. The weather was mild, but rainy. We went trick-or-treating at a couple of neighbors and then called it a night!
20: November | Emma and Brendyn celebrating with their "I love dreidels and drumsticks" tees! | Happy Thanksgivukkah | November
21: Hanukkah and Thanksgiving fell on the same day this year--making history! We celebrated at Nana and Grandpa's house in Ann Arbor.
22: FLORIDA | December
23: We went to Singer Island during winter break. We spent a few days with the Tigays at the end of our trip. There wasn't too much sun while we were there, but it sure beat the weather in Michigan.
