Baby Boy is 4 months old

 This sweet boy is 4 months old already....crazy!!    He is the sweetest thing there is.  Love him to pieces.   Such a sweet mellow happy baby.  I couldn't have asked for more. 

I love having a son.  He is eating 6 ounces every 3 1/2 - 4 hours.   He sleeps 10 hours at night and just wakes up one time to eat.   At his Dr Appointment he weighed just shy of 17 pounds.  The doc said he is the size of a 6 month old and is about the 80th percentile.  By far my biggest baby!
Always happy, rarely cries.   He is just awesome.  I would totally have more kids if I could be guaranteed they would be just like him.   I could go on and on about him....

Twins Turned Two!!!

2 years old!!    Thank God....its gotta get easier soon.  It is getting easier in a way but its still challenging.  Now we are in the crying/whining phase, the terrible twos....times two.   Lord help me.

This picture of Mandy sums up how I feel by the end of the day.

 Mandy is my sweetheart.   She talks so much, is very polite, is just a sweet girl.  She sleeps awesome...I put her to bed and don't hear a peep from her.  Cassie and her are best buddies and she LOVES Baby Alex.
Stats:  28 pounds - 66 percentile

Emily.  Oh Emily.   Cute as a button but SO strong willed.  SUCH  a temper.  She is my biggest challenge and the one child that makes things difficult.   Should have know as she is the baby that gave us problems while in the womb.  When she goes down to bed she will scream, cry and scream some more....sometimes for over 1 hour.   Poor Mandy has to deal with it since the share a room.  
Stats:  23 lbs 6 percentile

 I am seeing glimpse of what life will be like when they get over the terrible twos....and it will be so much fun.   I love having a big family.  When they play together and there is not the constant arguing and crying they are so much fun....other times you can find me banging my head against the wall. ha!

 The girls had a Minnie Boutique Birthday party...hence the Minnie ears.

This past year went way faster than their first year.   That first year was tough.  From 1 to 2 got better and I anticipate 2 to 3 even getting better.   Next summer we plan on starting our up north trips to the cabin and doing all our fun things we did before the twins came.    2 babies/toddlers makes it a lot harder to go out and do normal activities.... and I'm going to say it....getting a life back!!  Looking forward to it!!
