Catching Up

It’s been a while….I’m so busy I’ve been slacking and I feel terrible I have neglected to document the boys’ lives for the past month.
Daddy and I went to New Orleans for a wedding and I also spent a weekend volunteering for the Tulsa Moms of Multiples consignment sale.
School has started The boys LOVE school!  Drop off is so easy and they are now at the age where they tell me all about their day.
We have been riding our bikes out front a lot lately.  They like to ride from our driveway to the neighbor’s on the sidewalk and can pretty much coast the entire length!  I think they will be ready for real bikes come next summer.

My photography business is really picking up!  October and November will be busy months.
Daddy’s practice is SO busy as well.
Life is going so great and you boys are just growing and changing each day.

Sutton is currently obsessed (slightly scary obsessed) with DVD cases.  He carries them at all times and even sleeps with at least one.  Fynn is equally obsessed with cars.

We recently went out to Will Roger’s Home for a fun afternoon.



After we explored the area we loaded up to go to Claremore for some cupcakes!
Tiny Cakes is just down the road from where Grandma and Grandpa lived.  We took the boys there once with Grandma and she just loved spending time with them!  We miss her so much!

The boys are such a fun age and behave pretty good so I have been venturing out with them to do more things and it has been so great being at home with them more.

Until next post…

Shaggy

Posted in Fynn, Haircut by

Fynn’s hair has been a popular topic in our household since he was born.

Would it be red? strawberry blond?

What do we do with his double cowlicks?

How do we manage his mullet?

Yes it’s been the topic of many conversation.

Although I love how it looks from the front….

At the top it starts going every different direction imaginable…

It’s the mullet and spikes that form in the back.

So today, we BUZZ it all off again.

Maybe when he is older he will figure a way to fix his hair because I am not good at it.

Until next post…

Fynn’s Hair

Posted in Fynn by

 

I’d like to show the blog world the difficult task we face as parents with Fynn’s hair!

From the front it isn’t TOO bad but you can see the little spike in the back…

…and the “feathering”….

Again, not TOO bad…

but wait…

I mean….SERIOUSLY!

And from this angle you can’t even appreciate the mullet we have going on in the back on the neckline.

Poor kid!

Guess we need to buzz it again.

Until next post…

Christmas…in October

Posted in Fynn, Grandma, Jason, Playtime, Sutton by

This past weekend the boys probably thought it was Christmas!  The Just Between Friends consignment sale was in town and BOY DID I SCORE!!  I consigned their winter clothes as well as volunteered so I got to shop early AND earned $5 toward any purchase I made.

Jason and I have been discussing what to get the boys for Christmas this year as well as their birthday in January.  One of the items on our list was a toy work bench with tools.  Well I found one at the consignment sale for $15!  But with my $5 volunteer gift it was $10.  WOO HOO!  I have never shopped consignment sales but the feeling of SUCCESS was awesome!  Then seeing how much fun the boys had with it made it even better.

Yes, that is a toy drill you see.

Seriously…cutest picture EVER!  Daddy teaching Sutton how to cut a fake piece of wood.
MELT MY HEART!

I’m POSITIVE with my husband for a dad, these boys will be building stuff out in the garage before I can blink.

Just hammerin’ away

He’s so focused.

Hmm, which tool will I need?

The OTHER big toys came from great grandma and grandpa.  They got the boys their first battery-powered TRUCKS!

Oh my goodness, it was SO cute watching them!

They seemed so much older to me behind the wheel of their first vehicles.

Fynn’s face in the background cracks me up!

He looks so grown up!

Check out these two studs!

Boys & Their Toys

Posted in Cousins, Fynn, Sutton by

Today we went to a car show with Kiki, Auntie Jenny and cousins Eric and Elliot.

There were TONS of people and some very fun, cool cars.  This was my favorite.

Fynn & Eric got to ride in the wagon and Eric kept wanting to sit with Fynn so he could see what was ahead.  So cute!

There was live music and the boys were dancing in the wagon.  Kiki was trying to get Fynn to do his signature move!

Love the smile on his face!

They had different bounce houses and one was PERFECT for the boys size!

I didn’t know if they would go in or not but once they were in and Daddy showed them what to do they were LOVING it!

Two seconds after I took this picture the girl got off and it flew back toward Sutton and he went flying back.

He laughed!  As did I. 🙂

Eric just wanted to push the wagon around.  This kid has always LOVED pushing stuff around…cars, lawnmovers, wagons, everything.

He wasn’t licking the bounce house he just always has his tongue out!

If the boys’ birthday was during warmer months I would definitely rent one of these for their party.

They LOVED it!

Until next post…

20 Month Old Boys

Posted in Fynn, Sutton, Updates by

No longer babies really….getting used to that slowly.  Yesterday my BOYS turned 20 months old!  Seriously.

Fynn

The older Fynn gets the more ornery he gets.  He is learning what “time out” is REAL fast.  But he is also so sweet and funny and loving!  He just gets wound up and thinks “no” is funny.  We’ll see how long that lasts.

Fynn is getting GRADUALLY better about food.  He has eaten meatloaf and chicken a few times now and likes oatmeal more often than not.  He will DEVOUR some eggs and toast.  Both boys LOVE fruit and lots of it!  And both boys aren’t fans of veggies.  But today at lunch Fynn didn’t pick out ALL his veggies from his mac’n cheese.  🙂  PROGRESS!  Sunday night we had pizza and he ate some of the chicken, spinach, artichoke pizza, which made me proud.  He loves organic beef hot dogs, chicken dogs and veggies dogs as well as sweet potato fries and veggie chips.  And last night it happened….the inevitable….the boys ate CHOCOLATE!  We got Papa Murphy’s Pizza and I got some chocolate chip cookie dough from there for dessert.  Daddy and I agreed to let them taste.  BOY DID THEY LOVE IT!!!  And I have to admit it was cute seeing the smeared chocolate all over their faces.  Fynn usually doesn’t like sweets.  Recently for Miranda’s birthday we had cake and ice cream and Fynn would have NOTHING to do with it.  And when we went to have cupcakes last month he wouldn’t TOUCH them!  But chocolate he likes!

Fynn is talking more and more since he started preschool.  Not the clearest yet but I can make out what he is trying to say.  He will say mama, dadda, quack quack, dog, baby, bubba, pwease, ball, bear, down, bye bye, book, nana (banana), cheese and a few others I just can’t remember.  He will try to say Wiggles because that is his favorite show.  I have an episode on the DVR I play to keep them entertained while I make them lunch most days.  He does love the word dadda and wants to call EVERYONE that name.

He loves books.  WANTS TO READ THEM ALL DAY.  Wait, I mean he will bring them to you for you to read to him.  Fynn is a wrestler all of a sudden.  He spent 45 minutes wrestling his brother last week and I got video to prove it!  Fynn likes to push the limits with Mommy and Daddy too.  When we are downstairs he likes to try and stand on the couch, which is a big NO NO!  He will also try to stand and run around our bed, also a NO NO.  Hence where “time out” has come into play.  He does understand “time out” and gets the SADDEST face!  But he is so sweet after his time is over and I know he is understanding the concept.

Also, this boy is a DANCER!  He will get really serious, point his fingers and do a little dance in a circle when he hears music he likes.  Fynn is a big kisser as well.  Anytime we are leaving a group of people he will go around and give everyone BIG kisses!  And he will also blow kisses.  When it comes to babies, he LOVES them.

Finally, he is doing so great at preschool!  He doesn’t cry and walks right in.  He eats his lunch and his teachers keep telling me how sweet and adorable the boys are….I’m sure they tell all the parents that.  He is struggling a bit to nap well but he will get the hang of it.  I’ve put their nap mats down here at home and he will go climb into his so I know he doesn’t mind the mat.

 

Sutton

Sutton’s favorite thing to do is dump a storage bin full of toys and then one-by-one place them back in the bin.  But he will take random toys and bring them to me or Daddy and say, “thank you.”  Anytime he hands anything to anyone he says, “thank you.”  It is really sweet.

Sutton has become the PICKY eater all of a sudden.  And he LOVES the word, “no.”  But he says “no” to everything!  I’ll ask him, “Sutton, want to go watch some cartoons?”  His reply, “no” followed by him going in to watch cartoons.  He loves bananas, oatmeal, sweet potato fries, veggie dogs, cinnamon toast, strawberries and veggie chips.  Both boys LOVE LOVE LOVE Odwalla bars and Cliff bars.  Those are “treats.”  The few times we have offered the boys sweets Sutton is the one who devours it!  Loves vanilla ice cream, cupcakes and chocolate chip cookies.  He gets that from his mama! 🙂  Both boys go through phases though of liking something and then not liking it a few days later.  Typical toddler I guess.  I just keep trying to give them things over and over and hoping they eventually just eat what I put in front of them.  We are definitely trying to do the “that’s dinner” concept and it’s hard at times but after a few minutes of fussing they will sometimes just EAT IT!

Sutton is speaking so much clearer since preschool started.  He will really try so hard to repeat everything we say it’s so cute!  He says nana (banana), ball, tank ew, no, uh oh, choo choo, dadda, mama, quack quack, bubba, cheese and his favorite is to say “bye bye” with the hand movement and then blow kisses!  He will do this to everyone….even at Target.  They both will!  LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!

It’s getting so fun being able to direct them…..”let’s go brush our teeth” and “let’s go eat breakfast” and “let’s go upstairs” etc. are followed by that action.  They are becoming such little BOYS!  I love it and yet I hate it because I miss the days of sweet babies snuggled up with me napping!

Sutton loves to DANCE!  He will spin and spin and flail his arms about.  He is the child that will always stop what he is doing and make sure you see him.  That grin of his is UNDENIABLE!!!  He too loves books and really likes the picture/word books where we point out something and he has to say what it is.  Loves making the animal noises like his brother!

When I take the boys to preschool I have to put them in their wagon because I have to somehow manage to get TWO TODDLERS, two nap mats, two backpacks and two lunch boxes all inside a building FULL of parents and kids.  The first few days of preschool Sutton CRIED AND CRIED when I left but drop-offs are getting easier each week.  Today I let them carry their backpacks into the room so getting them from the wagon to the classroom wasn’t so bad.  Their teachers are SO sweet!

Both boys LOVE sports.  They love basketball and Fynn loves to throw the football and kick the soccer ball.  Makes mama proud!

Some Pictures Of Course….

Fynn loves to come from behind and pull Sutton down.
Sutton doesn’t seem to be too thrilled.

Here is the storage bin with Sutton putting his toys inside right after he DUMPED them ALL out!
Such a cutie!

Playing hoops together!  Love the brotherly playtime and Sutton even has the Michael Jordan tongue action DOWN!

Who wouldn’t love that grin!?

These are the moments I am so glad I have twins!  I’m so thankful they have each other.

My heart hurts with how much I love these guys.  I can’t get enough of them!

My buddies!!!

Buzz Cuts

Posted in Fynn, Haircut, Sutton by

Today Aunt Jenny buzzed our hair for us!

Before Pictures

Fynn

Sutton

And After Pictures

I’m trying to color MOM!

I’m trying to eat my FIRST CHOCOLATE MOM!

Yep, you read that right!  Daddy and I gave them their first chocolate in the form of chocolate chip cookies.

Let’s just say they LOVED IT!

They tried to steal Daddy’s cookie from him.

But, they were also wound up laughing so hard and Sutton was so sweet trying to share with his brother.

Melts my heart….just like the melted chocolate all over their faces!

What a wonderful weekend of doing absolutely nothing.

Now we have a lot of busy weekends.

Daddy is doing the Warrior Dash next Saturday.

Daddy will be an exhibitor at the fair.

We are taking the boys to their first OSU game.

Rue (one of mommy’s best friends) is visiting before moving to Germany.

Somewhere in there I need to figure out what to dress the boys as for Halloween.  Last year they were a bear and a monkey.

Hope everyone had a WONDERFUL weekend!

Until next post…

Cousins

Posted in Cousins, Fynn, Playtime, Sutton by

Today is game day – we are Oklahoma State fans all the way.  So we sport our orange on game days!

My sister-in-law and her kids along with my father-in-law came over for dinner tonight.

It’s so fun seeing all the kids play together!  Fynn is obsessed with his baby girl cousin.  He will point to her and say “baby” over and over and over.

Cousin Eric, Fynn and Baby Elli!

Elliot doesn’t look impressed!

Sutton was a SLEEPY boy

These two look like they just got caught doing something they shouldn’t.

Game is on LATE tonight…9:00 p.m.  This mama is drinking coffee to stay awake to watch.

I. AM.GETTING.OLD.

Until next post…
