That's right...the Nowell's have a new car. We got a Chevrolet Traverse. I have been looking at 3 row vehicles since we found out we were having twins. Our new car has (my favorite feature) a rear view camera. Which means when I back up, I can see everything behind me in my rear view mirror. Other perks are all wheel drive, dual DVD players, and rear sensors. I love it!! And, I'm excited we got it before the 4th.

He is going on a golfing trip this coming weekend, so we got him some snacks, golf equipment (tees, balls, glove, etc) and cupcakes. There is a pic above of the kids with their daddy. Happy Father's Day to one "Par"fect dad!! (Sorry honey, I know that was corny, but you that is why you married me right?)
Also we wanted to send out a Happy Father's Day shout out to our dads. We love you Grampy, Papaw and Pop!!

The next two are Zack's attempts at crawling. The second...well you will have to see. I can see he is his father's son, because he is really doing the worm.

BTW. We are talking now, much more than just baby talk. Maddie can say Ma-ma, Da-da, hi. Zack has said Ma-ma and bye-bye. I don't think they know what they are saying, but it is fun to hear them say the words.

Today Madelin and Zachary are 10 months old. I'll tell you...it is getting harder and harder to sit them down to take pictures. Since they are now mobile, they don't sit still very long!! I took 120 pictures just to get these 3!!
Madelin ~ She is now pulling up/climbing up on everything!!! She LOVES to hit/smack/pull/bite/hurt bubba (Brother)! I will tell her no and pull her away, but she goes right back to doing it. So my next task is to teach them the word NO and that means to stop. She is really starting to test her boundaries. She is really close to waving hi and bye. If she has certain people waving hi or bye to her she will wave back. She still loves to read, which makes me happy. Michael and I have discovered that Maddie is a daredevil! She isn't afraid of anything, which scares us to death!!!! She doesn't fear falling, flying, or anything! She will try and jump off of you while you are holding her and it doesn't phase her at all. Actually while I was typing this she was going back and forth from pulling up on the couch and coffee table. Well there is a pillow behind her and she is letting go then turning and diving head first into the pillow. We know she is doing this on purpose because she has now done this three times in a row.
Zachary ~ He is starting to scoot around on his bottom. Or when he is on his belly he "crawls" backwards (he kind of pushes himself backwards). He pulls up on some things, but other things he isn't quite sure about. He is a little timid about things. He, unlike sissy, has fallen and gotten hurt a couple of times (nothing terrible, just a busted lip here and there), so he is much more timid about things. Now that Maddie tries to beat up on him, he is slowly learning to fight back. If she gets near his legs, he will kick her back. Zack also loves to read. He and Maddie will sometimes fight over who can turn the page faster, so if you don't know the book by heart, then you will have to guess. He is starting to get a little jealous of Maddie climbing and crawling to toys that are his favorites. I'm hoping that it will only motivate him more to crawl or walk.
