Recently (A Photo Overload)

Saturday, April 5, 2014

It's been a busy last few weeks with big (and little) events that are worthy of noting on this here blog. Most importantly, my older sister, Brittney, had her baby! We were all so overjoyed to welcome her second boy, Chandler, into the world. He is perfect in every way. I was lucky enough to be able to watch the birth. I'm so grateful for that incredible experience to be in the room as a perfect child of God came into the world. And luckily, it was a routine delivery - which we were all so relieved about. Congratulations, Brittney! 

Max and Clara are getting so big! They are about 5 1/2 months right now and I feel like we are entering a whole new world of baby-dom with introducing solids, experiencing new toys, almost rolling over and sitting up. But I can honestly say each new phase has been so fun. We love how smiley and interactive they are now - I feel like I have two little buddies hanging out with me all day! 

I also love how they are totally aware of each other. They hold hands, touch each other, smile and coo and almost roll on top of each other all the time. I can already see the "twin love" I have heard so much about forming. It melts my heart. 

I am wanting to capture the sounds, smells, and little moments that make up our days. Time is flying so fast! I loved when I walked into our room and caught Russ reading the "Twin to Twin" book to our twins. :)

I feel like each week a new personality trait or ability starts to shine. Some moments are capture below:

Clockwise from top left:
* Both have become so vocal - Max will just lay on the floor and happily "yell." He just likes to be heard. Don't we all, Max. 
* We have started using the Johnny Jumper (or whatever it is called) and a Baby Einstein exersaucer. Right now both Max and Clara can only last about 10 minutes in each thing, but I anticipate when they are entertained for a little longer. :)
Their little personalities are really starting to shine. Max loves his teddy bear and must have it with him when he sleeps day or night.
* One day I unknowingly dressed myself like Max. From what I hear, this is something that happens often with mothers and their children.
* Clara is like a little monkey and is always holding her little feet.
