Five months old

These pictures were taken on the twins actual five month birthday (January 7th) and I just now getting around to write this post. I have actually already written it twice but it was some how not saved. I wrote  it while getting my hair colored for the first time since October! Which turned out to be the worst hair color EVER and I spent another 4 hour hair apt doing color correction. If you live in Austin this will make since my hair was not so much yellow rose but a whole lot landing strip.
