five months

Now that my babies are almost six months old I figured I should try and hurry and post this so that I'm caught up for a week at least :).Being a mother is exactly what everyone says " The hardest thing you will ever do, but the most rewarding." This weekend was definitely a rewarding weekend and it recharged me for what is to come this month. Greg is studying for the GMAT which he hopes to take this summer. He just signed up for a class for the month of May that is about eight hours a week :( so we will be dadless this month for the most part. I am really wishing the outdoor pools were already open. But on a happier note the end of may means Greg should be almost done studying, pools are opening, and GRANDMA is visiting us for memorial day weekend. I'm estatic!!!

Oh how I love these little people. I still can't believe I'm a mom sometimes, but I don't even remember life without them. They make me cry sometimes, they make me want to scream sometimes, but the laughs and the smiles I get in return erase all of those hard moments.
Hey my little man you are getting so big I can't believe it. I can't wait for you to start talking and walking, but I'm so not ready for you to stop being so little. Everyone always comments on your hair and how cute it is, you are already catching the ladies eyes :). When I go get you from your crib you aren't crying like you use to be, you just make little noises saying " hey mom I'm up, come get me" and when I go and peek over the crib you get the biggest smile on your face and you do this little jiggle with your head in excitement or kick your legs. You have learned that playing peekaboo is fun. You love being changed you always get a huge smile on your face like we are tickling you or something. You have started playing more with toys and splashing around in the tub. You and Alta love holding hands and you often play with her ear. The other day you were singing Tarzan boy with your Daddy it was super cute. You are a little snorer. Your daddy loves singing Blue Shadow to you when he puts you to sleep.
Love you baby boy xoxo
Baby girl oh how I love you. You are getting so big! You and Jayden are starting to interact a lot more. You smiled at eachother the other day it was adorable. You don't really lay on your back anymore you love arching your head back and playing on your side. Daddy and I can't get over your gorgeous eyes and eyelashes. You definetly steal the spotlight when you are in the room. You are starting to talk more and we absolutely love your little voice. You are a little cuddler, but on your own terms. You are starting to play more with toys and are a little obsessed with splashing in the bathtub. As soon as I lay you down in the tub your little legs go crazy. You enjoy playing peekaboo. And I think my favorite thing of all times is when I go and pick you up from bed you get this huge smile or more like just open your mouth as wide as you can :). Makes me so happy that you're that excited to see ME. Sure makes me feel loved.  Your daddy loves singing Butterfly kisses and I loved her first to you. I have a feeling you are a daddys girl, you get the biggest smile when he gets home.
Love you baby girl xoxo

I randomly came across your blog and your twins are darling. I thought I'd contact you because I just had identical twin boys that are now 2 1/2 months old.

Reading this post about how they make you cry sometimes and want to scream sometimes but their smiles erase those hard moments, I know exactly how you feel!

My husband is just finishing up law school and is going to start studying for the bar pretty soon which means he'll be gone M-F for about 10 hours a day (and studying on Saturdays too)! So once again, we're kind of in the same boat.

I do have a blog if you'd like to take a look ( If you have any tips or tricks, I'd love to hear!

They are so precious! growing up fast too. at least I can see pics of them!

I'm glad to hear that it gets easier each month. I'm enjoying it, but it is tough at times as you know. Our boys give us at least one 4 hour stretch at night, but that's about it! The other night we got two 4 hour stretches which was nice but they haven't gone longer than that yet! We plan on staying here in California once my husband is done with law school. We like it here! How exciting that your twins are 6 months. I bet it is hard to believe. I already feel like these first few months have flown by. They change so much so fast. It seems like we are noticing something new in one of them or both of them every couple days! Are you able to take your twins out on your own yet? I still only take them on short outings when my husband is around.
