Collins is 2!!!

Oh my heavens! One minute they are learning how to roll over and the next they are turning 2! The week leading up to his birthday was hard....I was busy making a slideshow of his last year and the tears would stream every time I worked on it. The memories were so sweet, but so hard to stomach. My little boy is growing up and I don't want him to. There I said it. :)

Trent and I are so proud of the little guy that he is becoming. He's sweet, cuddly on his own terms (hehe), passionate, GOOFY as can be, headstrong, and very smart. He loves food (fruit!!), puzzles, stickers, books, his blankie, cars, trains, climbing the stairs, watching movies, throwing items, and sitting on the couch like a big boy! He could do without vegetables, macaroni and cheese, getting diapers changed, and getting in his car seat. :)

He's a tall boy in the 95th percentile and a strong boy in the 90th percentile for weight. :)

Here's a few shots from his 2nd birthday party!!

Last birthday with just us 3! xoxo

Andrew and Amelia are doing wonderful. I am sooo thankful! We had a little scare and was sent to labor and delivery, but all is well. Turns out it's a vein issue because of the pressure of the babies. Nothing a little relaxation and support hose won't fix. :) lol

At 24 weeks, Andrew was 1 lb. and 8 oz. and Amelia was 1 lb. and 13 oz! I can't believe Amelia is approaching the 2 lb mark! WHOA! All of their measurements were the same except for their weights. Amelia's belly is a little bigger.

Prayers: Prayers for Amelia to keep eating and for Andrew to eat more. They are both above average in their weights, but Amelia's belly is 5 oz. bigger than Andrew. Guess she likes to eat! Thank you!!!!

Amelia wouldn't show her face, but we got a quick shot of Andrew. I'm in love. Amelia, we'll see you at delivery and it will be SO special!!! :)

Here are some shots of the nursery!! It's coming together!! (my pictures won't center....sorry!)
Collins and Daddy SUPER busy putting up 2 cribs!
                                        Love these sweet little prints. :) The bunny one is Collins, Amelia and Andrew!

Close up of the dot sheets!! Aunt Sissy bought them their own little BLABLA doll. Andrew's hadn't arrived yet at the time of this pic.

Amelia's bedding, but with the sheets posted above

Andrew's bedding, but with the sheets posted above!

Getting SO excited and SO thankful for the help we've had in making a nursery for 2 possible! God is so good.


Month by Month up to 5!

We are 25 weeks now!!!! :) Yes, that's 6 months (hehe), but we haven't taken our 6 month pic just

Here's me at 9 months with Collins :).....................same size as I am now!!!!

WHOA twins! :)


When's Recess?

 I sent these pics to my mom and that was her hilarious comment. :)

I try really hard to try to get one, maybe two 'school' type activities into Collins' day. I guess it's the teacher in me that is just busting at the seams to have a little student. :)

We've been working a lot on colors and sorting. :) I used garage sale stickers for the first activity!

Had a little trouble with the boys :)
