Bye Bye Summer

I'm so sad this year to go back to work. This summer has been the most incredible time of my life. I have soaked up and enjoyed every minute with my two little men. Although I do have to admitt, it was a little tiring at times. I would not change it for a second! I think the thing I will miss the most is our morning time. We wake up around 6 for a bottle, then just hang around in our pj's til around lunch time. We would play, read, watch some Nick Jr, and laugh. Then we would start our day. Sometimes we went to Hawaiian Falls, Target, playdates, visit Tank, just wherever the day would lead us. I am going to miss the carefree days of nothing to do but love, love, love on Luke and Monte.


The boys 'found' their little fat toes earlier in the summer, but they have been a big hit lately.

He's everywhere, he's everywhere

Luke is ON THE GO!!! He is crawling and pulling up like crazy these days. He has gotten so fast! The other day he followed me in the bedroom, down the hall, in the kitchen, wherever I went. Sweet bubba, he wants to be right by mommy!

Beep Beep

Oh my goodness this is by far the boys favorite thing to do right now! The cars make this beep beep sound and it is hilarious. I swear it's like bumper cars in the kitchen.

My Angel Babies

They've been gone for three years,
Been a long road and a million tears,
I'm moving slow, but I'm moving on.

With no regrets and piece of mind,
Lived so much in so little time,
I'm glad when they were here and they were mine.

Time and fate can't be controlled,
You play the hand you're dealt and the dice you've rolled
Who am I to question God anyway?

Well these days when I look back,
I know I'm blessed to have loved like that,
I still miss them everyday.

My heart will never be the same after losing my Ally and Brayden. I know they are waiting for me and I will see them one day.

8 months

July 25th, 8 months that my heart has grown to love these handsome two boys. I'm amazed at how time is FLYING by. Please, someone, anyone, make it stop!!! The boys are now eating every 4 hours or so, eating 2 meals a day. They love to eat any and all foods!!! This was our magic month we started sleeping through the night!!!! Praise the Lord!! Their bedtime bottle is around 8:30 and they start their day around 6. They average 3 or 4 30/45 minute naps. Luke is pulling up and crawling all over. It's hard to keep up with him. Monte is sitting up independently and is in no hurry to crawl but loves to 'talk' and make sounds. This has been a fun month and I'm so blessed to have been able to be home with my handsome men.

Big Boy Car Seats!

Didn't I just bring home my 4 pound 12 oz babies that barely passed the car seat test??? Where are they???

Brotherly Love

The boys have really 'found' each other lately. It's so cute to watch them enterain each other. They just laugh and laugh at each other, the belly laughs at that. From the time they were home from the NICU, they want to touch each other. They slept in the same crib until 6 1/2 months, so everytime they are napping, they tend to find each other. So sweet....

Snuggle Monster

This is my absolute favorite part of being a mommy right now. I love you Monte Charles

My little momma's boy

This picture melts my heart. Luke is such a momma's boy through and through. He now says mamamamamama. It's adorable. When he's really tired, he will just mouth it without sounds. So sweet.

Our Bff's!

We have LOVED playing with our best friends Wyatt and Weston. It's scary how much they are all alike. Luke & Wyatt and Monte & Weston. They even do the same milestones at the within a few days of each other. CRAZY. Anyway, this has been a God sent relationship for me and for my boys too. I have enjoyed talking to Julie, she has been through every step with me!

July 21 March 22 The real twins! Ha

Beach Bums

My oh my did we have fun on our Galveston trip. The boys loved the water. I didn't try the sand yet, but we opted for a pack/play under a canopy and let them play to the ocean sounds. It's crazy to me that my sweet niece Sydney was the boys age when she went the first time. She has grown oh so much. I love her so much. There were so many memories made and I'm already excited to go next year! Lord help us, they will be all over!!! Check out a few pictures....
