Here’s our Christmas Album!
And here’s our January album too! Here’s what’s fun… both twins have one dimple, just one, and it’s on the right side. Since they’re obviously NOT identical twins, that’s a pretty amazing coincidence.
I finished up our October Album! It’s actually a really good one because we did some fun and interesting things this month! We went to the Planetarium, on a hike, to Spooky Saturday at the Dinosaur Museum, and Barnyard Boo at the Thanksgiving Point Farm! Then there’s Halloween of course!
Here are pictures of our cute kiddies in September!
These little twins are 5 month old! Evan was diagnosed with Torticolis at the 4 month appointment. It means one of the muscles in his neck is particularly stiff and it happens a lot with twins because there’s not as much space in the womb. He favors his left side so we have to try to get him to turn right. It’s gotten much better, but his head is still mishapen from favoring the left so stay tuned to see if he needs one of those baby helmets of doom…
We have some pictures in the album from their first solids!
We just booked our next big trip! Now that we have 4 kids, it’s harder to ask someone to watch all of them, and I want my kids to love to travel as well, so we’re packing up our big, bulky family and going to Hawaii next June! We’ll spend 2 weeks on the big island. We have our condo and flights all lined up! Now we just have to wait in anticipation!
Magically, these babies became three months old! When did that happen?! (click on the photo for our July Album)
We had a really great Saturday celebrating Tracy’s birthday at one of my new favorite places around here and it made me think it was about time to download all of our photos from July so far. There’s a park behind Lone Peak High School with a lake/pond for fishing, swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding…with trees and a stream and a playground and grassy areas. It was the first time I’d been there and that taste of nature and especially trees and that very playable stream just won me over! I love that Tracy has birthday parties, and I especially loved this year’s!
I’ve continued to successfully accomplish my goal this month!
Week 1: We went to a splash pad and made bird houses! (actually, our hot water heater went bad (boo) and Brad worked from home while we had it replaced so he made the bird house with them. It still counts!)
Week 2: We went to Tracy Aviary and took apart a radio to see what was inside!
Week 3: We went to Wheeler Farm and made boats for sailing at Tracy’s party!
It’s been a particularly good month! We’ve also booked our vacation rental for a nice, big, trip next June to…..Hawaii!
And, we’re starting to gear up for school in less than a month! Eek! We’re starting to accumulate the lunch boxes, waterbottles, a uniform attire. We’re looking forward to finding out about Kyle’s teacher and school supplies in less than two weeks!
I finished up our June Album with lots of new pictures! So far I’ve been able to successfully accomplish my goal of one craft and one outing per week!
Week 1: We made dirt cups and went to the aquarium!
Week 2: We made sun catchers and went to Chuck e Cheese!
Week 3: We made star lanterns and went to the zoo!
Week 4: We made collecting boxes and went collecting in the canyon!
I feel it’s a victory for moms of newborn twins everywhere!
I finally got around to taking photos off the camera!
In the May album you can look forward to: Evan’s first bath! (he loved it!), Claire’s first bath! (she hated it…still does), a bunch of pictures of Claire in my favorite outfit of hers (from Melissa), and Kyle’s kindergarten graduation!
Don’t hold me to it, but I feel like it’d be so easy to fall into the sit at home taking care of babies trap, and who could blame me? But to make for a more fun summer for Kyle and Joel, I made a goal of one fun excursion per week and one craft per week. I think…I hope…I can manage that….right?
So in the June album (so far) you can look forward to: our trip to the aquarium (why yes I did take all four kids by myself! yay me!…well, and then Tracy came!), our craft of the week (dirt cups), and playing with bows with Claire
Here’s our Halloween Album! This year our festivites for the month included:
Our annual trip to Gardner Village with Karon, Ashlyn, Carter, and Audrie. I’m so happy with the pictures I got of all of the kids! Their cuteness is practically begging to be captured on photo.
TWO trips to Wheeler Farm!
Neighborhood Fall Festival
Trick or treating at Brad’s work and in the neighborhood
