10 month update

Yes, I know it's been 2 months since my last post...oops!! These girls are keeping me VERY busy! But we're also having so much fun together!!! Where do I begin...??
Things we do now:
Say "mom mom" (Charlotte)
Crawl (Charlotte)
Army crawl (Olivia)
Feed ourselves bottles and finger foods
Sleep all night IN OUR CRIB (Yay!)
We have been going on all kinds of outings lately: stores, great grandmas, zoo, parks, YARD SALES! Lol, I'm kind of addicted to these lately....but who can resist a 25 cent outfit??!?! NOT ME! Last Saturday we headed out at 7:30am and hit up almost 20 sales. I had the cutest little yard sale buddies...
Every Sunday I start mapping out my yard sale route for the next Saturday  using craigslist and yardsalesearch.com. I've been going for the past 3 weekends and so far have only spent about $20 total and have found a TON of amazing deals! Clothes, old wooden rocking horse, lamps, toys, toys, toys! I even found a cute summer skirt for myself :)
Ok, let's talk about how these little chicks are eating...
About a month ago these two started refusing baby food. Olivia would spit it out all over me and Charlotte would smack it out of my hands....so we thought we'd give finger foods a try. They have been doing so well eating and they love to feed themselves! They eat so much normal food now that I was able to cut out a bottle! Hooray! Here's our current eating schedule at 10 months old:
8am- 6oz bottle of formula with 2 scoops of rice cereal
9:30am- snack fruit(blueberries are our favorite), puffies, or crunchies
11:30am- Lunch -bread, cheese, some type of veggie (loving green beans and carrots) sometimes we have meat (turkey, ham, or turkey burgers is what we've tried so far)
2:30pm- 6oz bottle of formula with 2 scoops of rice cereal
4:30pm- snack (same as above)
6:30pm- Dinner (basically the same as lunch)
8:00pm- 6oz bottle of formula with 2 scoops of rice cereal
We just started this new schedule about a week ago and they adjusted immediately. I'm loving it because I don't have to wash as many bottles!! Can't wait til we're done with those things...

They turned 10 months old yesterday. Here are some pictures we took at the park

Sorry for the totally random, all over the place post but I felt bad for not blogging for so long that I just threw this together....Enjoy :)
