Easter Weekend

Happy Easter! We've enjoyed a wonderful weekend full of food and family. We headed down to Braxton's parents house Thursday when Braxton got off work and spent the last few days with his family. Tyler came up Friday night to watch the new movie Batman v. Superman in theaters with Braxton and some friends so he spent the night and we got to hangout with him Saturday morning. We went out to eat at this DELICIOUS little dinner for breakfast and ate waaaaay too much food. Anyone else binge eat over holidays? And then Sunday we drove down to Spanish Fork and spent the evening at my Aunt Heather's house with all of my side of the family. Everyone loved seeing the twins again since it had been a while, and we had a blast catching up with cousins. We really are lucky to have so much family and friends close by! A few days before Easter I had to do a photoshoot with the twins and their cute cousin Tristan. I love seeing the relationship these three already have! The boys already look up to Tristan and watch him so closely to follow what he does. It's adorable and I can't wait to see what happens as they get older. 

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all remember the real meaning behind this holiday. He is risen!

Nine Months!

The twins are NINE MONTHS OLD! It's been a whirlwind of a month!
They are learning so. fast. They can both sit up on their own now (Oliver is a little better at it than Porter), they can crawl (Porter's better at that), and they babble all the time to us! They love reading books, playing with toys, and bath time. Bath time is seriously the cutest to watch because they just splash like crazy and get so excited. Porter loves crawling back and forth across the tub. It's so fun to watch them learn new little things, and I can't wait to see what's next! 

We sure love these little monkeys of ours!

Favorite Teethers

The boys have officially started teething! It's been pretty difficult around here lately. They've both become so irritable and fussy. They constantly are chewing on everything and ANYTHING they can get their hands on. And they aren't sleeping as well. But these teething rings from Otherware have helped SO MUCH! The boys absolutely love them! The beads are super soft on their gums and they will chew on them for hours on end. Plus look how cute they are!

Let's hope we get some teeth popping up soon!

Spring Break

Spring break was amazing! Braxton didn't have school all week so we were able to go on some fun little family outings around Logan and really enjoy this warm weather! The boys have been so fun to take out lately, and I love when Braxton's home so we can do things all together. Sometimes I go a little insane when I'm cooped up at home all day by myself with the twins and it's really good to get out of the house for a change and get a little fresh air. One of our favorite things is to just walk down main street and walk into all the little shops and look around. I swear I could be doing anything with Braxton and I would enjoy every second of it. I'm so happy with this life of mine and can't help but smile every time I think about how blessed I am. 

Happy spring break!

St. Patrick's Day

Happy Saint Patty's Day everyone! 
I'm embarrassing my kids by sticking crazy headbands on them and taking a bunch of cheesy pictures to celebrate this day! They're not Irish, but I think I'll kiss 'em anyway. 

Hope everyone had a good holiday! 
I know I'm loving celebrating all of the twins "firsts".

Hitting Milestones

This past week Oliver has started sitting up. Not just for a minute or two. But full on sitting by himself for long periods of time. He's got it down pat now, and it's so weird that we can just set him down on the ground on his bum and he won't tip over. And Mr. Porter has decided he's tired of staying in one spot. He now half crawls - half scoots all around the floor and we can not keep him contained! I love that they're developing so well, but at the same time it's just so weird to me that they're already at this stage! Time seriously flies so fast with these little ones.

30 Weeks In / 30 Weeks Out

The boys have officially been out of me as long as they were in me!
The picture on the left was taken only days before I had the twins. Now they're so big I can hardly hold them both! (The constant wiggling definitely doesn't help)

It's so crazy to believe they've been here just as long as I was pregnant with them. I'm seriously getting whiplash from how fast they're growing! These next few months need to slow down or I might cry. They're going to be a year old before I know it!

An Oliver Appreciation Post

I just wanted to take a minute and say how thankful I am for my Ollie Pop. 
Because he's been sick he's been extra clingy this week. He wants to be held basically 24/7 and cries as soon as I leave the room. Which has been hard. 
But I've loved the extra bonding time I've been able to have with him. He really is such a sweet little boy and I love the one on one time I get to spend with each of my boys. Lots of the time I get caught up in the whole twin-factor. Both babies crying. Both babies needing to eat, or to be changed, or to be held. And I don't take the time to really appreciate each of them as an individual. 
I'm working on that. 
So today, I needed to say how much I really do appreciate Oliver.

A Day at the Park

Winter is basically over! And we couldn't be happier about it. Seriously. That winter was ROUGH, and I've been needing some time outdoors. Yesterday it was warm enough we decided to go for our first walk with the boys in a long time and we headed over to the park. 

We had so much fun playing with the boys and I could tell they loved getting out of the house and having a little change of scenery. We can't wait for summer to get here!

Enjoy the warmth!
