this week was a tough one. adam was traveling, thatcher was sick, i’m pretty sure breck is getting it, and i had an accident with the car {while rushing to get thatcher to the pediatrian’s}. to say it wasn’t our best week is probably an understatement. i can honestly say i’ve never been covered in so much throw-up, and that’s saying a lot since i was a nurse for 6 years. two clingy, fussy babies and no husband to help makes for a very tired mama. however, i am so thankful that my mother-in-law was able to come and help relieve some of the stress. the week wasn’t all bad though. on tuesday, the babies hit 13 weeks and on wednesday they were 3 months! one perk of having a sick baby is getting to go to the pediatrician’s and get her weight. any guesses??….my once 4 lb baby now weighs 11 lbs 2 oz!!!! i couldn’t believe it {although my arms could}! and even though i don’t know how much breck weighs i know for sure it is more than thatcher – that boy has some serious pudge going on.

3MONTHS53MONTHS43MONTHS2 the twins are getting harder and harder to photograph as they continue to really develop their personalities. thatcher seems to either love or hate the camera. she’s usually either smiling or crying – no in between. breck on the other hand is so interested in the camera, that he just sits there and studies it, which ends up coming off as a very serious face in all of the shots. whenever i do catch him showing a different expression i get so excited.


things they are loving right now are:
bath time, talking, “jumping” {where i basically lift them up and down over and over and over and over and over – breck seriously cries huge alligator tears every time i stop}, peek-a-boo, pacifiers {heaven help me when i have to break that habit}, dance parties in their crib, and snuggles with adam and i {they grab on so tight and nuzzle perfectly into us – it melts my heart every time}

3MONTHS8 ^^ this boy. he is such an amazing little boy. he is so smart and you can see him analyzing and taking in his environment everyday. he loves to “talk” and once he gets going it’s hard to get him to stop. he’s learned how to get what he wants and is the master whiner of the house. he’s also so sweet though and his smiles and laughs fill the entire house. he’s a complex little one and i can’t wait to see what/who he becomes.

3MONTHS7 ^^ baby girl. she is sweet, cuddly, and oh so loving {i swear she gave her brother a hug last night when he was crying}. she’s super strong and loves to “stand” on our legs. she’s stingy with her “words”, but not with her smiles. she loves to be the center of attention and demands an audience at all times. she craves human touch and is almost impossible to put down. her favorite thing to do is snuggle and i hope that never changes. she’s my alarm clock every morning, but i wouldn’t have it any other way.


happy 3 months sweet babies!

    I was thinking about you this week and realized we hadn’t heard from you in a bit…so happy to see you here today. The children are so cute and so distinctive as individuals.

    I’m sure you count your blessings of having those extra hands, willing to commute from NC! Bless your two Moms ♡
