BABIES IN A BUCKET

I love how Jack's toesies are sticking out in this one.

Logan loved it in the bucket.
He would tip his head back & look at me upside down.

What a bub!

Get me out here, Jack!

IT'S GETTING HOT IN HERE!!!

Time to bust out the banana popsicles!

COLORING

It was so cute to see them react.

SATURDAY MARKET

Josh & I took the boys downtown Saturday morning to the Saturday Market. We got some yummy food & sat in the shade under a big tree.

NO PLACE I'D RATHER BE

The boys & I spent our sunny Thursday afternoon over at my mom's house. My grandparents were in town, so we all hung out & had some pizza.

I was able to snap some pretty cute shots of the boys. Lately I find that I want to take pictures of the them, but by the time I grab the camera, the moment has passed. I am beginning to understand why Jon & Kate signed up to have their lives video taped. All those memories going by unnoticed... uncaptured... unmarked. It kills me.

So I was thrilled today to have my camera on hand & catch my cutie-pies going on their adventures.

Jack showing off his "walking" skills. "Walking" consists of up to three steps at a time, then collapsing onto his bum or knees to crawl the rest of the way. He's SO proud of himself.

Logan's "I know I'm being naughty, but I'm so cute that you won't mind" face.
The kid's got me wrapped around his finger.

(Note my new haircut!)

My absolutely edible Jack.
I want to eat ALL of him:
chubby cheeks, chubby thighs, chubby toes.

(These great new outifts are from Costco. Price: $5.97 each!)

Can't believe that's my baby Bogans.

Meanwhile, down the hall, Jack is attempting to break into the bathroom to unroll the toilet paper.

We had a great time visiting. It's always nice to see the boys with the family. And nice to have the extra hands pitching in with keeping them happy. I just love coming home to my babies after work everyday.
It's been really hard leaving them this week. The three day weekend was a rude taste of summer so having to go back to work was rough. I cried a few times. One more day and then we get some more family time. I just want to stay home, play games, read stories, eat Cheerios & snuggle constantly.

Soon enough.
Just be patient.
But patient is hard.
Cause there's no place I'd rather be.

FEELING NOSTALGIC

36 Weeks
This time last year I was very, very pregnant. I was not sleeping well, I was hungry & my back hurt. While I was so thankful I had stayed pregnant, I was also ready to meet my babies.
I am so glad I kept a pregnancy journal & took weekly pictures. It has been really fun to look back at where I was. It's true that whatever you are going through currently will someday just be a memory. It was hard to be home on bedrest, but now I can truly say it was all worth it.

And they're off!

We went to the zoo with my BFF from work, Lisa D. (Also known as "Sis D", which is what some of the kids we work with call her.) She & her daughter Sydney met the boys & I there. We saw the animals, ate lunch & played in the grass, snapping pictures all the way.
Here is one of the boys loving on Sydney. They think she is the coolest!

So sweet!
