Easter Part Two

Easter with my family today was low key partly due to the fact that there aren't as many people as my husband's side of the family. We went to brunch with my parents, came home to put the boys down for a nap and went to their house in the afternoon. It was just my parents, my brother and his family and us.

The boys did a little better today than yesterday. They actually took a nap this afternoon for 2 hours which helped and didn't end up going to bed until 8pm which is later than normal. They got so screwed up on  naps this weekend that I hope it doesn't set us up for a bad week this week. Last night poor Jaxson was coughing so much but ended up going to sleep. I am praying this sickness passes soon so they can be better for vacation in a few weeks!

Easter Part One

This is the first year that we are having TWO easters! One with my husband's side of the family and one with mine (like usual). My husband's family lives all over so coming together is hard. We usually only see the extended family once a year for a family reunion and that only started 4 years ago. So now that everybody enjoyed getting together and didn't mind the drive, they decided to have Easter!

My hubby and I had this fantastic plan that we would leave when the boys normally take their afternoon nap and they would sleep on the way there and wake up in a great mood. Not the case..........within the last 24 hours they picked up a cough and kept waking themselves up in the car and only slept a total of 30 minutes when their afternoon nap is normally 1-2 hours.

Even so, they weren't in the worst mood and we ended up staying longer than expected. When we got home, we gave them baths, got jammies on, ate dinner and put them to bed..........or tried to. That's when the coughing started again and Jaxson is still up, 30 minutes later!

Here are some pictures from today:

This was the boys very first time around a dog. At first they didn't like it but Jayce couldn't get enough after he saw that it wasn't so bad.

Finally............something funny!

The twins are the youngest kids on both sides of the family so naturally, I'm envious of all the funny things my nieces say. I want the boys to talk so I can have the funny stories to document and look back on years later. Little did I know that I'd have something funny to say before they started talking..................

This morning the boys were up a little earlier than normal wanting to get out of their cribs. I walk into their bedroom and everything, I mean EVERYTHING in their cribs was on the floor. We have their room set up where their cribs are across from one another so naturally, everything was in the middle leaving no where to walk. I almost wish I had taken a picture................but I'm sure it'll happen again!

It didn't stop there! The dresser is right next to Jaxson's crib and he will sometimes pull open the top drawer and take out what he can grab so in addition to all the stuff from their crib, their was pajamas thrown in the mix that had to be refolded!

It gets better yet..............I walk in and put my hands on my hips and say 'what did you do!?'. Jaxson proceeds to look me straight in the eye and throw his nuk into the pile and laugh!

Those are my wonderful little men!

15 month well check

The boys had their well check yesterday and things are going good. So good that they aren't due back until 2 years now. I have been so used to taking them every 3 months that getting to their 2 year well check seems like an eternity!

Jayce has grown 1 1/2 inches since his 1 year well check!!!! He WAS in the 80% percentile for height but now he's average at 33". He currently weighs about 25-26lbs. He was wiggling a lot standing on the scale so we only got an approximate.

Jaxson has grown as well. He is now at 32" and 23lbs. His height is catching up to Jayce's but he's still gonna be a skinny little thing. I still think he'll play soccer with is short and fast little legs but my hubby begs to differ!

The boys are learning more sign language, too, which is exciting for us. They both are doing so well with ball, baby, more and eat. We now added please and milk to the list and are currently trying to teach them sleep. We did ask about this at their doctors appointment if learning too much sign language will delay speech and the answer was no. They were preemies (only a month early) and twins so naturally they will be a little behind anyways and boys generally speak later than girls as well so the doctor thinks they should be just fine.

I don't have any current pictures to post but I will take some more next week at Easter and have those up as soon as I can!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, bath time is one of my favorite times with the boys. I don't know why. Maybe because when they hear the water start, they come running in and they could be fussier than all get out but still get so happy about bath time!

We've had bath robes for them for a while but used them for the first time today. We put them on without a diaper just to see what they'd do (and to get cute pictures). Jayce, of course, peed on the bathroom floor! AYE! But Jaxson did good. We did put diapers on them eventually and still let them run around in their robes. I guess Jayce's is kinda small now but Jaxson's fits good. Looks like we'll be buying another one in the near future that is Jayce's size.

Here are some pics from our fun bath night:

1st 'Real' Haircut.......

I only say 'real' because this was the first time they were at a salon, in a chair, cape and all! The first haircut was done by my Aunt over Christmas. She is a hairdresser and we thought it would be nice for her to have the honor to cut their hair for the first time. It was a little hard with them sitting on our laps, nothing to look at and having everyone staring at them. This time was much better at the salon. They watched baby einstein, laughed at themselves in the mirror and then laughed at each other. They were so good.

Take a look:

Super Saturday!

Just had the itch to take out the camera and snap a few pictures of the boys today. I used to take pictures of the boys monthly and they are now 15 months and I have fallen behind. I used to set up stuff every month and now, that is non existent. I promise I will start up again but after not doing it for 3 months I think, 'what's the use?'. Maybe I'll just do it every 3 months now? They DO have an appointment next week to actually have them taken for the first time since they were born instead of Mommy just taking them!

Last post I got a smiling picture of Jaxson so I had to get one of Jayce! So precious!
