Happy, Hoppy Easter!

And what a happy Easter it was! Jayce is continuing to sleep through the night, Jaxson's thrush is going away with his medicine and the WOW news, Jaxson rolled over on his own. He was put to bed on his tummy, like always, and when he woke up he was miraculously on his back! My boys never cease to amaze me! As any mother would say, my children are ahead of the game and I do truly believe that. For being premature and twins, they really are learning things quickly in my eyes!

We spent Easter at my parents 'summer home' as they call it. They are staying at a ritzy apartment until their house is done being re-built from the fire. It's coming along well and it may be done earlier than expected but until then, we get to visit them at the golf course apartments.

My brother, sister in law and nieces joined Kevin, I and the boys. We sat around, enjoyed the weather (even if it was a little windy), ate and played a game. The night ended early for my family since the boys were pretty crabby but as soon as we got home, got on the boys' pajamas, they were out like a light at 8pm sharp! They sure do know when it's their bedtime, let me tell ya'. Jayce slept through the night again until 6am but Jaxson was up 3 times. Poor guy! I can't wait until he feels better! I was up at 2am with him to feed him and then he fell asleep in my arms! I LOVE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS.......although I don't want him to get used to it.

Here are some pictures from our day:


Jaxson hammin' it up! Such a cute little guy!


Ooh! Got an itch!


Quack, Quack!


So precious!


Jayce is such a calm, serious baby...........


but he can sure be smiley and goofy when he wants to!


I've got my eye on you!


Such a handsome boy!


You can tell they are brothers!


Finally, our first good family photo where Mommy and Daddy look nice and both boys are actually looking towards the camera!


All the grandkids! My nieces Taylor and Shea and the boys!


It turned out to be a great day and a fun first Easter for the boys!! The Easter bunny (aka Grandma and Grandpa) got the boys presents. They got some golf clothes (SO CUTE!), new car seat activity toys, books and an Easter bunny rattle. I was told by Jaxson and Jayce to say THANK YOU!!!

I finally got my videos uploaded as well. These are from about a month ago when I got them their new bouncer. Both of these are from the first time we put them in it. As you will see, they LOVED it and they still do!

I hope everybody else enjoyed their Easter as much as we did! I can't wait unti next year when the boys are walking and maybe can go on an Easter egg hunt! That will be so much fun!

Until next time......

3 months already!!??

Yes, I have been slacking once again but for good reason! We have really been trying to get into a routine with the boys and so far so good. For the last 3 weeks the boys have been taking naps in their cribs and just earlier this week, they started going night-night in their cribs as well. Monday night was a little rocky but Tuesday night, my Mr. Jayce man slept from 8pm until 6am. I wasn't TOO excited since full nights sleep usually don't persist at this age but Wednesday night was pretty darn good as well; both boys slept from 10pm until 4am! A solid 6 hours! So now we've made it to Thursday and they fell asleep at the bedtime we set (around 8pm) and we'll see how long they go tonight. We're keeping our fingers crossed for at least another 5-6 hours.

The boys are doing good otherwise. They are starting to play and grasp things more and make much more eye contact. They have always seemed a little advanced from day 1 with holding their head very well for newborns. At 3 months, they are already starting to roll. Jax will do it every now and then!!!! Such strong men!!

Mommy misses the boys during the day since I'm back at work. I went back March 22nd and have been fighting for almost 3 weeks to have my boss approve me to work 4 days a week so I can spend more time with the boys. So far, she isn't budging so I let her know that I will be looking for a new job. It kind of stinks since I do like my job and enjoy my co-workers (well, most of them anyways) but I have to do what's right for my family!

Here are some updated pictures to tickle your fancy:


Jayce has the most infectious smile!!


That darn puppy dog face that Mommy doesn't like!!


Jaxson's eyes are getting so blue and Jayce's I think will be hazel/dark brown.

I have 2 videos that I've been trying to put on here but they always take forever to upload. I'll have to find some time this weekend to upload them so stay tuned......

Love,
Holly
