Embrace the Camera

I’m trying to stay up with the “embracing” the camera but with TWO 18-month-old boys it is so difficult to get them to sit still long enough to get BOTH looking at the camera and not squirming.  I think most twin mommies will agree (or at least I hope they do and I’m not all alone in this) but I feel like I have to take EQUAL amount of pictures of each boy and I have to have BOTH in my pictures with me.  I’m working on getting over this because they are still individuals.  This is the best I could do.

Until next post…

CHOO CHOO

Posted in Fynn, Playtime, Sutton, Twins by

The other night we were lucky enough to go experience an awesome train village.  There is a couple who have been patients at the chiropractic clinic for years and they set up this amazing train village once a year for people to come see but we couldn’t make it this year.  They had family coming into town so they set it all up and invited us to come see the other night.  THE BOYS WERE IN HEAVEN!  Sutton was running around saying, “CHOO CHOO” and doing the arm movement with it.  They were so excited I knew they would sleep well that night and they did.  Thanks to the B family for allowing us to experience this AMAZING set up!



Such a fun time!

Our Friend Avery

This past weekend we had a fun play date with our friend Avery.  Her parents, Angie and Clint, are our good friends from college and they live about 2 hours away so our kiddos don’t get to play together much.  Well we HAD to go see them because we missed them SO much!  We ALL had such a fun time!

When we arrived Friday the boys and Ave just hit it off playing.  Miss Ave has LOTS of AWESOME toys that kept the boys busy.  She taught them how to put coins in her piggy bank, introduced the boys to playing “kitchen” and even dolls!  They had such a good time.

After the kiddos went to bed we got to play games and have some “adult time.”  MUCH NEEDED!  Angie and Clint are such fun, down-to-earth people and we are so lucky to have them in our lives.

Saturday morning we took the kids to the splash pad and they WORE themselves out!  Avery is still a little new to the splash pad so it took her a few minutes to warm up but not our boys.  Sutton took off!

Miss Ave was SO adorable in her shades and hat!  It’s so fun to spend some time with a little girl, especially having twin boys.  She is such a fun girl too.  She likes her girly stuff but she loved the boys’ basketball!  My kind of girl!  She played so well with the boys too.  I mean, two VERY active boys came into her house and TOOK OVER her toy room.  She was great with taking turns and showing the boys how to do stuff.

I just wish they lived closer so we could play EVERY weekend.

We love you guys!

Snuggles

Sutton is my SNUGGLE MONSTER!  He loves to run to me with open arms, wrap his arms around me and SQUEEZE!  I got to capture one of our evening snuggles so here is my EMBRACE THE CAMERA for today.

Fynn was snuggling with us! He’s more focused on chewing his fingers….dang molars.

What A Mess

Posted in Fynn, Jason, Mealtime, Sutton, Twins by

I’ve mentioned before how messy our boys are when it comes to mealtime.  The other night was the messiest it has ever been.  They had some organic ziti with broccoli and focaccia bread.  Then they had blueberries with dessert.  We had to strip them down and clean them off in the kitchen sink.  What a mess it was!!!

Sutton is WAY messier than Fynn that is for sure.

I’m thinking we should work on being cleaner…..they do start preschool one month from today.

Vroom Vroom

Posted in Fynn, Jason, Jordan, Playtime, Sutton, Twins by

Yes, that is what I now say on a daily basis, “vroom vroom.”  I am the mother of twin boys so it was inevitable, right?

Our new obsession is CARS, TRUCKS and anything with WHEELS that we can push around and say, “vroom vroom.”

Gotta love the BELLY!

Watch it go!

One in each hand.

I have to admit…..I love being a mom to boys.  Growing up with an older brother, Jordan, I was always into G.I. Joe, baseball cards, Star Wars and boy things.  Yes, my mother TRIED so hard to get me to LOVE ballet, dance and girly things, but I was a tomboy at heart.  When we were finding out the gender of our twins I was PETRIFIED of twin girls.  I didn’t know if I could handle all the PINK and DOLLS and GIRLY things.  When the woman doing our gender sonogram announced it was twin boys I felt a bit of relief.  Jason, on the other hand, was HOPING for one of each so he took a few minutes to convince it was TWO boys.  Even my OB had to literally pull the sonogram photo out and POINT OUT the boy parts on BOTH babies.  It was comical.  The DAD took convincing while I was content with my two little buddies.  We always said we would have TWO babies, we just didn’t think it would be a “two-for-one” deal so I think the ideal outcome would be one of each and be done.

Everyone always asks if we will have more.  GOD WILLING we have one more.  Yes, I only wanted two kids at first but things are different now.  Having twins means my kids will BOTH turn 16 at the same time, graduate high school at the same time, etc.  I would like to stagger out those moments if possible.  And even though I had a HORRIBLE pregnancy, I kind of want to experience it once more.

Now, being surrounded by ALL BOYS I wouldn’t mind a little girl down the road…..maybe ONE day. 🙂  All that being said, it’s all in God’s hands.  Either way, I’m so happy to have my BUDDIES to play cars with every day.

Me and My Boys

I want to start getting in the habit of participating in “Embrace the Camera” Thursdays.  This wasn’t taken today but it is the most recent picture I have with my boys.  I’m going to have to do some practice with the self-timer for next week.

I don’t want to look back and wish I would have had more pictures with my babies so here is a new beginning to try and capture more memories WITH them.

Until next post…

Closet

Posted in Fynn, House, Playtime, Shoes, Sutton, Twins by

Our closet has become the boys’ favorite place to play!  It is located right when you come in from the garage and through the laundry room so they love to run in there and play.  If we have any clothes on the floor, they have to pick them up and put them in the hamper.  Then come the SHOES!  Mr. Sutton is OBSESSED with shoes.  It’s hysterical.  And then of course, the HANGERS!  Oh what fun it is play with hangers.  They have a room FULL of toys, yet it’s these cheap, plastic items that they love.  Go figure.

Fynn stole a brown high heel!


And there is ALWAYS some brotherly love – wrestling!

Oh how I love my little buddies!
