Not a blogger

Hello, I'm back! I'm alive! It really isn't because I'm so busy with the twins, it's because I hate blogging. Some people were made to blog. I'm just NOT a blogger. I love going back and seeing the memories documented along with pictures. So for that, I keep the blog alive...just not very well. I hate uploading pictures and organizing them. It's especially more difficult since I take most pictures on my phone now. I have downloaded the app and maybe one of these days I will actually blog from the phone.

Anyway, having said that, enjoy a whole lot of pictures.

I really thought these month to month pictures would be more dramatic but looking at them they look like they are the same size.




The outfits still fit the same. What's up with that? I swear they are getting bigger...well Jane is anyway. She's my chunk. I call her "Sweet Baby Jane" and I call Kate "Crazy Kate". They look so different and have very different personalities. It will be interesting to see them as they grow up. I just hope they are good friends.


This was back in January or sometime a long time ago. This is a good picture to see their different personalities. Crazy Kate on the left and Sweet Baby Jane on the right.


This is usually how it is when we see family. It's nice having 2, one for each grandparent to enjoy.


Jane and Kate


I love when they fall asleep when I'm holding them. (Kate)


Kate just seems to fall asleep anywhere.


Proud to say that I made these super cute dresses and headbands. I found the pattern on pinterest of course.


So I thought this was a picture of Kate sleeping in one of her weird positions, but she's crying. Don't know why I took this picture. Enjoy it anyway.


January this year wasn't as bad as most. There were still days like this when we just sat and watched movies and had popcorn and hot chocolate. Never mind that this was taken at 10am.


Jules really has been the BIGGEST help ever. She just loves to hold them and play with them and they love the added attention. This is Jules with Jane.


This is Jules with Kate. Jules' favorite used to be Jane because the whole J thing. Jane got to be too big for her to hold, so she mostly holds Kate now. Jane weighs about 1 1/2 pounds more than Kate.

Libby in her Easter dress.


They got sunglasses in their baskets and insisted on wearing them for the picture.


It was really bright.

I made these dresses too.


Jane and Libby.


Easter


Dying Easter eggs with Anson, Morgan, Mitchell, Marci and Grandma.


They are finally eating solids. I wasn't looking forward to this stage but they are doing pretty well...except they didn't like pears. I love this face that Jane is pulling. The video is pretty funny of them eating the pears.

We had my family Easter party at our house this year.


We made them work for it though. We still haven't posted many pictures of our house, but here you can see what our backyard is like. We are right by some major power lines. They can't build under them, so they made a park out of it and we get to enjoy it. We are on 1/2 acre anyway but we love the openness of the backyard. We are getting our fence put up this week too, so that's exciting. Maybe one of these days I will post more pictures of our place.


My sister and her family came down for conference weekend. We went out to Elkridge, where her in-laws live, and fed the ducks at the Salem Pond. It was so much fun. The cousins sure love the babies.


This is close to when Libby almost fell off the dock.




Kate loves her fist(s).


Kate


Bath time.


They are finally holding their own bottles.


This is how I shop. See the skillz I have. 4 kids in one normal size shopping cart. I can't buy much, but it does the job for now.


The kids love playing with the babies.


Jules being weird.


...because Libby was being weird


For our 6 year anniversary we went to "Color Me Mine" and painted an egg. Brett did the top and I did the bottom. It turned out really cute. Now we can pull it out every year and enjoy it.

There is a park close to our house that the kids love. This is Libby with Kate.


We finally pulled this sucker out but it's only good for one kid. We didn't want to buy another one but wanted them both to enjoy...


I guess a bungee cord isn't the safest way to go huh? (No babies were harmed in the taking of these pictures. They were supervised by trained parents)


One of the many crazy poses we find the babies in. Jane doesn't move around much so she's the one stuck face down on the ground. Kate rolls around like crazy and is usually the one doing the weird and crazy things.


She was in the bouncy chair for about 5 minutes and didn't cry at all. Next thing I know, she is turned around, falling off, and asleep. That's my crazy girl Kate.


Jules and Jane


Looks like it's the same day as the above picture. I probably should have just put her in bed huh?


In March we went up to Idaho to see my niece, Sydney, get baptized. We had a ton of fun and ate way too much.


I found them reaching out to each other and holding hands. Isn't it so sweet? (I swear I dress them in different outfits than these. I do love these outfits Jodi gave us, and they wear them often, but it seems like they are wearing them in every other picture.)


A picture from January.



This is how we celebrated Valentine's Day. I didn't want to fight the crowds so we went out the weekend before and had a nice candle light dinner that night with the kids. Note Brett's beard. They had a work contest for February. Wasn't that so sweet of them?


I guess that's all. We are all doing well and surviving day to day.
