First Tooth!

The day after Cristmas, I noticed Lili's bottom gums were swollen and it felt like a tooth was coming in. Two days later, it has cut through! She officially has her first tooth! I remember Chone got hers really late, but not this one. She is 4 months and a week and already has a tooth! It still doesn't beat Lisa, who was born with a tooth.
(Felix is showing no signs of teeth)

Cutest picture of Felix EVER!!

X mas morning

Chone got the American Girl doll she wanted from Nana & Tata

Phi is totally lounging in her new chair, with ottoman
Dad got a rifle he picked out from Mom
Me and my sisters all got books from our parents with some nice, much needed, $bookmarks$.
I loved all the presents we got, and I hope everyone liked theirs too. The best present I got was the flannel bed sheets from the Lisa & Joey, since the babies are always peeing on my bed! The best present we gave was a rooster and chickens for my Dad. (We actually haven't gotten them yet, cause a lot of people don't sell them until Feb. or March)
Lili tried Phi's chair
Chone tried the twins new stroller with her new twin
Felix was sleepy, and almost slept through all of X mas morning
It was another great X mas morning in SB. I picked up Chone from her Dad's at 2 in the morning on our way from (Big)Nana's to my parents house. It was nice having everyone together for X mas morning, now that there are so many of us.

X mas Eve

Here are the twins ready for thier first Xmas eve at big nana & tata's house.
Of course everyone wanted to hold them, but Patti got one of the twins first. She always has one of them, she loves the twinkies so much!
The Phi looked sooo cute in her red dress!
Then Santa came and brought the kids presents. Lili didn't seem to notice it was Santa holding her.
Phi was scared, but she didn't cry.
Felix was like, "What's going on? Who's this guy?"
Chone got to spend Xmas eve with her Dad and his family this year. I missed her there, and so did little Gabriel, he didn't have someone to play with :( So I am looking forward to next year when she is with me for Xmas eve.

Holiday Program

Chone had her holiday program at school. She didn't have a solo speaking part, but at the last minute, they had her fill in for an absent boy. So she got to be a reindeer. Here she is singing.

Here she is saying performing her speaking part of the show. She did great!

They sang a song called "Wrap It" that was to the music of the song "WhipIt". So during the music only parts, they would do the robot. It was the best part of the show! I loved it! (on the bottom by the man, you can see Chone's pink stripped arm)
Thank you Woman for coming with me. Going with 2 babies is not an easy thing.

And during the week, here is Luis, falling asleep, and the twins sleeping.

I can do it!

Since he always wants his hands on his bottle, we let him try to hold it himself, and he did! (For about 3 seconds)

Tummy Time

Here are the twins having some tummy time!!

Oh no!! Felix is falling over. Keep your balance!!

Ah man!!


So me & Luis have gone to his company X-mas party for the past 2 years. It's open bar and they have raffles and dancing. I like going, we have a good time. So this year when they asked Luis if we were coming he had to say no because Lili won't take a bottle, so we can't leave her at a babysitter. It sucked, but that's what happens when you have kids.
So why is she drinking a bottle in this picture? Lili decided that she would take a bottle, on the night of the party. It was like she was saying, "Haha, you could have gone!" She will take a bottle every big once and a while when she feels like it. Picky-picky! There's always next year!

A Hot Day

It was hot, so they got to nap in thier dipes today. Notice how my bed doesn't have a sheet. Felix pees on my bed every chance he gets. I'm constantly changing my sheets, and sometimes don't even have sheets on my bed. Felix rolls to his stomach now to sleep. He is so much more comfortable that way.

Dragon Ball Z

I dont know if you can tell, but her hair is all spiked, and she looks like one of the guys from that cartoon Dragon Ball Z. She was crying and sweating so much, that when I put my hands through her hair, it spiked. Poor Lili, she has crazy hair!

Hair Styles

After a bath, I tried to comb their hair. Felix looked so handsome, but didn't seem to care. Lili was not having it! She just cried.

Thanksgiving was at Nina/Tia Grace's house this year. Gaby Jr. was here and it was great to see him, and he finally got to see the twins!! I didn;t take my camera out the whole day, so someone send me some pics to post of this day. Of course I am thankful for my new family! The twins being born really brought everything together for me and now we are the Cuevas, Gomez, Contreras Family!

Out of Control

Though Felix's hair is flattened by the headrest in the carseat, it is really a mess. But nothing compares to Lili's out of control hair! It's getting so long, I think it's time to try to style it.

First Cold

Felix got his first cold. He is the first one to get sick, but I bet Lili will have a cold soon. Chone and Luis were sick, so I just knew the babies would get sick too. When he sneezes, mocos come out. It's so funny!! S here he is with a tissue blowing his nose. Even though he is sick, he seems to be feeling as happy as usual.

Double double strollers!!

Last Game!

Chone had her last soccer game for the season. She played so hard that her face got red and blotchy! She didn't have any goals this season, but she had an assist like the one's you see on the FIFA World Cup games.

After the game they had a pizza party. They got their trophies and frames with a collage of pictures of all the girls on the team from the coach. Another season is over. I wonder if she will want to play again next year?

I was tired, Chone was bored, and both babies were awake and fussy. So we decided to go outside to the backyard. They are doing a lot of stuff to the outside of the house, like building a wall between our and the neighbor's house (which happens to be by aunt), took out all the grass to put new grass, and ripped out pretty much all the plants. The yards are a mess, so we went outside and raked some of the trash and dead plants. I don't think Chone really got the point of raking cause she kept on raking the dirt where there was so stuff to rake. The twins loved being outside!! They were calm and content for a good 20 minutes. Me and Chone got to talk about the plans we have for the backyard. I think we all felt refreshed when we went back inside.

Felix's New Hobby

Yes, he is watching TV!!

Can you belive at 2 1/2 months, this kid already likes to watch TV! He loves it! I know it's suppose to be no TV before the age of 2, but since I have two of them it helps to have something that can distract him. I'm just afraid he is going to be 9 months and not able to sit up by himself and just want to lay in front of the TV all day!

Chone participated in PTA Reflections this year. It is where they give you a theme and you get to do art on that topic. This year it was "My favorite place..." Chone decided her favorite place was Disneyland. She drew a picture with markers and colored pencil of her at Disneyland. They had a showing of all the artwork. It was cool because it was not just her school, but all the schools in town. Here she is by her masterpiece! Great work Chone!

Happy Birthday Tia Angie!!

Tia Angie's familia threw her a 50th birthday party. As we were getting ready, the twins had some bonding time (notice their arms interlocked). They fell asleep next to each other and actually let us get ready.

Lili got her wild sticking up only hair done for the first time. A little clip held down the front, but the rest was still sticking straight up!

The party was great and we had a good time! Happy Birthday again to my Beautiful Aunt Angie!

Sleeping Positions

Felix decided to sleep across the bouncer instead of the right way.

Lili was sooo comfortable on her stomach on the boppy.

She woke up refreshed and with kissie lips.

That's Hot!!

It was hot and the twins were getting sweaty in their sleepers, so I let them hang out in their diapers for a while. They liked it!!

Chone decided to be a Geisha, and the twins were ducks!!

We went to SB because the Phi was going to be there and we wanted to kids to be all together for Halloween. The Phi looked super cute in her costume! When we were taking this picture, someone said, "Cari, 75% of those kids are yours!" I was like, "Man, you're right!"
We trick-or-treated the street that takes you to my parents ranch. We only saw like 5 other kids, but the people at the houses were very happy to have us trick-or-treating at their house and to see our beautiful girls.

By the end of the night, the duckies were snug in the stroller.

But the Phi was still ready to go!
