Chickens and ducks and lambs.....OH MY!

This past Saturday, the boys went to their first petting zoo at Molly's birthday party. They got to see a 1 week old baby lamb, baby chickens, baby ducks, baby geese, baby turkeys, baby bunnies, a billy goat, a pony and a pot belly pig. WHEW!

Here are some pictures from our fun afternoon:


Jaxson looks like he's wanting to eat the bunny.........he looks a little hungry!


Jayce LOVED the baby chicken!

My little cowboys!


We tried for a family picture but the boys had it with pictures by this time (Daddy, Jaxson, Jayce and Mommy)

The boys had such a blast.........even though they may not have really known what was going on.

They have been so good lately and they are growing up so fast. Jaxson is a mover and a shaker and he is going to be crawling in no time. Jayce is more laid back but is quite the jumper so he may be walking and skip crawling all together.

Earlier this week we started giving them rice cereal again. We started it at about 3 1/2 months but stopped when we switched their formula from hypoallergenic to a regular. Now they've been on their new formula for 2 weeks with no problem and thought it'd be good to start food up again.

We are giving the rice cereal with peas this week and next week, who knows what vegetable will be next. The possibilities are endless!!!

The twins have their 6 month shots scheduled for July 2nd. I can't wait to see how much they've grown and how much they weigh. They are doing so good keeping up with what a singleton should be and I couldn't be more proud.

Love,

Growing, growing, GROWN!

Oh my boys are growing up so fast. It's hard to believe the they are 5 months already. I can't belive how fast time has flown but it sure has been a ride. They are now doing more in the last month than they have the first 5 months of their lives put together. They are laughing, rolling with such ease (which scares mommy around furniture), army crawling and babbling more than ever. I wonder when they start talking? lol........

About 2 months ago I started screeching at the boys (low pitched, trying to be quiet) to get their attention and to make them laugh. It seems as though Jayce has caught on and remembered this. Here is a video of the latest:



The boys also like the bath now...............FINALLY! Since birth they never liked car rides, the bath or stroller rides. Now that they are older and growing out of their colic, they are becoming easier. My favorite time still is bath time and now bed time. I love putting the boys to bed and just holding my sleepy babies.

I started my new job last week and one of the most popular questions I always get is, 'isn't it hard with two?'. My answer still stays the same........Kevin and I never had just one baby so we don't know any different. Having two babies is all we know at this point and since we've been working at it for 5 months now, it's easy to us. Yes, it is stressful at times but this is the best journey I have ever been on. Watching my boys grow up and being able to help them learn and grow will be the most rewarding job I will ever have!

I will leave you with some of their 5 month pictures I took.........my little chippendales! :)


Jaxson


Such a smiley baby!
