Momma's Big Lover!

The twins are going through a challenging stage, to say the least... Over the past few weeks they have gone from being very relaxed children who would allow anyone to hold them, to absolute psychotic terrors if Momma is more than 18 inches from their face! I'm barely exaggerating. Brandon especially is obsessed with Momma... He throws full blown tantrums when she even considers setting him down for a moment! Poor Momma...

Daddy's Girls!

Nothing like a little quality time with Daddy's favorite girls on Father's Day!!

Happy Daddy's Day!

What a fantastic Father's Day! Mommy started the day with fresh pancakes and gifts. The best gift was the Super Man t-shirt that Mia was adamant about getting Daddy, to match her shirt. A leisurely afternoon of swimming and barbecuing wrapped up a near perfect day! The twins even got to spend a little time in the water. Brandon absolutely loves swimming and would spend all day in the pool. Aubrey is a little hesitant, as she is with most things in life! Of course big sissie Mia rarely comes up for air she's so proficient at swimming these days... A great day for a very lucky Daddy!

Daddy's Girl...

Mia sure enjoyed the Father's Day swim party! She's become a total fish. At the mear mention of pool time, she's in her suit, goggles on and ready to go! It's so nice to know that we don't have to worry about her quite the way we used to around water... Look at that beautiful smile. She'll always be Daddy's special girl!

Big Boy!

Little man spent Father's Day lounging pool side in his favorite chair. As you can tell by this picture, he's a bit of a giant! Apparently the protein shakes and powerlifting routines are having an impact... There's just more of him to love!!

Final Bottles!!!!!

Tonight was our bittersweet final bottle feeding! We're thrilled to be done with preparing and washing bottles, but it's somewhat sad to think that all of our children have already grown past this phase... Mommy has been trying to ease them away from their bottles over the past few weeks. As any experienced parent can tell you, the 'easing' concept just doesn't work. It's all or nothing! So, as of today we're going with the 'nothing' principle... Wish us luck!

Night Night!

This is the view we get each evening as we say goodnight to our little lovers! They are both so sweet and cute in their cribs, excitedly getting ready to snuggle in with their bears and blankies... Two cuties!
