Our little family photos – no Moose though

Our cute little family. Guy actually consented without much nagging to get his photo taken. It doesn’t bother me at all the babies are looking everywhere but the camera. Their only two months old. Who cares! I think too much is placed on the looking at the camera and smiling thing. The other ones are just as good and show a ton of personality.
Kisses, kisses and more kisses. We seem to have a hard time controlling ourselves from kissing the babies obsessively. They get at least 10 kisses each per feeding from both of us. Sometimes we end up sticking our big noses in their eyes by accident!:-)

For some reason this shot really makes me laugh. I love it.

Here’s another fun one.

Today we said goodbye to Mum & Dad. Guy took them to the airport and they dropped off the Trooper to get fixed (from the sideswipe accident) very early this morning. I thought for sure the kids and I would be up to say goodbye, but we crashed hardcore about a half hour before they got up. I didn’t even here them and when Blake woke up thought I had only slept for 10 minutes and not 2 hours. Ah, sleep deprivation at it’s best. So last night I didn’t say goodbye and will have to call later today to say bye.

Also today we are headed to the pediatricians office for their 2 month check up. They will also get a ton of shots today. Buy am I glad Guy will be off in case they get fussy. It will be nice to see how they have progressed too.

Photos with Mum & Dad

Here we all are on the front porch with Moose. We almost didn’t go onto the porch for these shots and I’m so happy we did. They look great. Everyone looks good and the lighting is perfect. A nice thunderstorm was threatening to come in so there was a great cloud cover.

It is hard to choose a favorite shot, but I think this one is mine.
Dad and Blake

Dad was holding them while we were getting set up and switching kids individual shots.

Mum loves the photos with Moose in them. Moose loves his Nanny lots and lots. If we counted all the ‘pet’ grandchildren they would have way more then the 13 they now have! lol

This is my second favorite shot of the kids with their Nanny & Poppy.

Both kids are smiling! Right on.
We are looking forward to the baby blessings coming up on July 20th when we travel to Utah. Dad is going to bless Blake and Guy will bless Madison. Melia said she has a couple of blessing outfits for us to borrow that her kids used. I was just going to dress them in white onesies because I don’t want to spend money (or have anyone else) on something they only will use once. That’s the tightwad in me speaking. I mean, come on, this is the same person who found a way to wear her wedding dress 4 times!

The last of four posts today!!! First swim




The greatest photo of Blake ever!! (So far)

Photos from our trip to DC

We made it through the trip to DC. Dad was really feeling ill with a ton of congestion the entire time. We mostly did drive by lookie Lou’s at most of the sites. The only places we got out were the Washington temple and the Botanical garden. The hotel we stayed at was very nice. They had a continental breakfast with a omelet bar. Very tasty, and it saved us a lot of money on breakfasts. Not to mention it was much easier to have a handy breakfast when caring for the babies. Both babies slept well while we were there too. I think it helped for us to divide and conquer the kids at night. Unfortunately for Guy he had the fussy baby two nights in a row. But after the last week of little sleep it was very nice for me to have about 7 hours (interrupted of course) two nights in a row.

Guy read the other day that the kids are supposed to sleep about 14 hours a day still! Well, they haven’t even been close to that. Right now Madison is sleeping instead of eating her lunch which is fine with me. She’s a bit tubby now a days anyway. LOL They are both almost completely done with the 0-3 month old clothes. I weighed them on the bathroom scale yesterday. Blake was 11.4 pounds and Madison was 12.6 pounds. She is now almost double her birth weight. Blake is closing the gap on their weight differences.

I’m holding Madison in the next two shots.

Blake is being held by Guy with Dad in the background.

Mum and Dad in front of the Washington DC temple. It is very beautiful. Guy rode around the parking lot trying to keep the kiddos satisfied. They still woke up and we fed them in the parking lot. I will never drive with them not buckled into their car seats properly. Accidents can happen anywhere and that is a risk not to be taken.

Here we are in front of the temple. I have Blake and Guy has Madison.

Dad and Mum at the botanical gardens. Mum has the coolest hat. It comes apart to make a fan and folds up like a folding fan. Talk about convenient and easy to pack!

Guy and Blake. Guy wasn’t aware there was a way to tighten the head support to keep him from this position. However, we are all glad he made this particular error as we all got a good giggle out of how funny Blake looked.
