Picnic in the Park...

The other day, we headed to the park and had a picnic with the boys. We had pizza, sported the bjorn baby carriers, and enjoyed a fun little evening!

Birthday and Farewell Grad Party....

So I celebrated my birthday last weekend and it was a lot of fun. I LOVE birthdays because it's your day. Growing up my mom and dad always made special occasions, well....very special. They always made them fun and memorable. The little stuff was a BIG DEAL....and I love that.

So here's how I spent the day.....First off, some of the ladies took me to breakfast at the corner bakery...yum! Thanks girlies. It was DElish! Then my hubby took me to lunch with the boys. We had a nice time....sat outside and enjoyed the perfect cali weather. I opened some presents! Thank you all.....very thoughtful wonderful gifts! Then that night, we had a party for all the peps around here who are graduating. Fun Fun Par-tay!

Great day! Wouldn't have changed a thing!

What a Blessing....

The boys were blessed the last week in March. What a special day it was! Chris' parents and my parents ventured over from Arizona, and my brother and his family came up from San Diego. Thanks for coming guys....and we missed all others who live too far away....we were thinking of ya!

Chris gave the boys such sweet blessings. They were very specific to each of the boys, and then there was some twin/brother stuff in there too!

I feel so lucky to be these boys' mom. They are such sweet spirits, and I hope to be guided everyday as to how to raise them.

Love you Stetson and Reddek. Thanks for coming and joining our family!!!

The boys LOVE their bath! It's part of our bed time routine....and when they are fussing and we step into the bathroom they settle down. It's like they know what's coming.....It's SO nice that this calms them. They are so cute when they are all suds up!!!!

This is kind of a family joke I carry on the tradition and say it to the boys while they get their bath:

There's too many kids in this tub! There's too many elbows to scrub! I just washed a behind that I'm sure isn't mine! There's too many kids in this tub!

3 months old! (but the post is a week late!)

I can't believe that these little guys are 3 months old already! Time flies WAY to fast!


* Weighed in at 12.2.
* He discovered his lips and tongue and makes this cute smacking noise.
* He stares at his fist when he's in his bouncy seat.
* He has this crooked little smile.
* When he laughs, he laughs so hard and takes in all this air and it sounds like he's choking.
* Stetson loves to takes baths. (And for some reason he is always positioned on the left in the tub and pees on his brother every time! ha!)
* He is very sweet natured. When he stares at you it's like he wants to really listen to what you have to say.


* Weighed in at 11.4.
* He is always happy. Smiley, smiley, smiley.
* When he sits in his bouncy seat, he props his arm up on the he's chillin'.
* When you feed him his bottle, formula drips all down his face because he's smiling at you!
* He makes this cute face by tightening his lips reminds me of a little bird.
* Reddek loves to take baths. He scooches to the bottom of his seat so that his whole body is in the water. :)
* He is very playful. When he stares out you it's like he wants to joke around.


* They are starting to stare at each other. I don't know what they are realizing, but it is always a very sweet moment.
* They are sleeping well. They are still a bit unpredictable, but their nighttime sleep hours are stretching.
* They both have started sucking on their fist. In fact, they put it so far in their mouth that they gag themselves. Silly guys!
* They are a lot of work, but so very worth it. Double the sweetness!

Chris was on break last week and the weather was the beach was calling our names. Stetson and Reddek really enjoyed it. The boys hit the waves while the ladies enjoyed the sun. Good times!!!
