What every hip baby will be wearing this season...

Brewer - modeling the latest in chicken and vegetables (by Gerber) - and practicing his baby pteradactyl sounds...hear mommy egging him on in the background and chastising him (kindly for his uncharacteristicly 'unkempt' appearance at the dinner table - oh let the comparisons between the twins' behavior begin...

It goes without saying, but this clip makes my monday! Join Cheryl at Twinfatuation for 'Makes My Monday'!

Super Sunday, Super Sno-Cones!

Get yourself to your nearest Sno-cone stand ASAP!

We went with the entire family and it was a great way to beat the heat. The boys enjoyed sharing cherry sno-cones with Daddy and me. We all had a great time and we met not one, but two other sets of twins while we were there! It was hilarious - Sunday night must be 'twin night' at the sno-cone stand. It was a wonderful experience - everyone we met was lovely and it actually was not too unbearably hot.

Thanks, Grand-dad for buying us sno-cones! We really enjoyed it. And just so you know, the boys did go down right after their baths, so you and granny wore them out really well this afternoon!

The sun will come out...


Unfortunately. It has been hella hot here. Every time I think about taking the boys for a trip to the park, I change my mind. It can't be good for them to be out in 100 degree + heat. Oh, well. I guess tomorrow evening before bedtime we'll play on our water pad - that was a big hit last weekend.

Also on tap tomorrow - a haircut for me - YAY. If it turns into something special, we'll post a picture!

Way Back When-esday...

My Way-Back When-esday this week is a picture from our pre-mommy/daddy days back when we used to travel. This is from our vacation in May of 2007 when we went to London - that's the Tower of London in the back...

Our big vacations were our between-in-vitro breaks and were a great way to blow off steam and remind ourselves that we were 'us' first, no matter what happened. This trip, in particular is the source of many fond memories for me and Jon.

London is high on my list to take the boys back to someday, but I will wait until they are out of the stroller!

Play along with Way Back When-esday with Cheryl Lage at Twinfatuation!

Super Sunday, Super Daddy (and water fun!)

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. Thanks for the difference you make in your children's lives.

A very special Father's Day to my sweet husband. I never would have made it down this path to parenthood without him and he is the best dad - even better than I ever imagined. I can see the love in my kids' eyes when he walks into the room. It's amazing. I know he would do anything for us (and he often does). We love you, honey!

This morning, Jon received gifts from me and the boys, including a handpainted platter done by me and the boys, which I will have to photograph for uploading.

We brunched with the extended family, including Jon's parents. The day had a couple of firsts...Among them - Bonham finally ate puffs today at brunch! He was so analytical. The puffs were star-shaped and at one point he studied one, picked it up, bit off one of the points, put it back down and re-analyzed it before eating it. Ah, my little studious one.

Another big hit today was the boys' first 'pool'. I got them this Splash Pad (my Super Sunday pick) on for $19.99 last week. Today was our first chance to try it out.

As you can see, it was worth every penny!

Jon says he had a wonderful day! I hope all you other dads out there (including my own) did as well.

(Our Phabulous) Life behind bars...


The new camera is here! Pictures tonight!

Super Sunday - Super Toy Needed! And Life on Hold...

We are sad to report we have declared our camera officially lost after one week of it being missing.

We're sad, we lost about 2 weeks of pictures, but we know it could be alot worse. We gave in and ordered a new camrea so I am sure the old one will show up any day now.

Until the camera comes in, I am wishing I could press a 'pause' button on my babies.

They have been teething like crazy, poor little guys. Brewer is starting to pull up now, too, and he now LOVES the jumperoo. We need a second jumperoo-like toy, but I don't want to get anything too similar - I want two different things so the boys don't get bored. I'm thinking of getting this...any recommendations?

It called the Chicco 4 in 1 - it starts out as a rocking horse type of toy, with a seat that goes around the waste and eventually converts to a push and then a riding toy. The beginning age range on it is 9 months and the boys just turned 8 months, so I think it will be a great fit. Anyone else have something they like even better? We'd love ideas!

What a treat!

Tonight the boys were still awake when I got home so I threw on my sweatpants and hopped in baby-jail to play.

My sweet Boo-boo came right up to me and crawled in my lap to cuddle - playing with my necklace, his head on my shoulder, arm wrapped around mine.

Bonham - standing (again, more, still...) in the corner of the baby-jail, grunting and yelling to get my attention because the world will end if you don't watch him stand every possible second. LOL.

After snuggling Boobear for a bit, I helped Bon cruise over to me to get his cuddle time. He tried to climb me..succeeding of course...roaring the entire time. This earned him a new nickname - Bonzilla!

A quick bottle and fresh diaper for each and they were both nighty-night.

Sweet dreams, boys. You made your mommy's day.

(Daddy, thanks for making dinner. You're pretty good stuff, too.)

Big News

I am proud to announce I am going to be an aunt again in August...and then again in January! Yay for both of my sisters-in-law and my brothers. I am so happy for you guys!

On another note - I am sad. My camera is missing. The good news - I downloaded pics on May 17th, so I haven't lost my kids' entire lives...but I'm sad about the pix I have lost - Bonny's first pull-up to a stand among them. I had it last when taking the boys to visit their great-grandmother. I used it there on Saturday and haven't seen it since. It's not at her place. Jon thinks it MUST be in my car. I think it's just gone and I am BUMMED. Hope and pray that we find it...(even though I am sure God has much better things to do than to help this scatterhead find her camera)...

To bridge the gap...some mobile uploads from my sis...
