Love like crazy

I have turned into a horrible blogger. I seem to have a heck of a lot on my plate lately. BUT since I claim to use this as a journal, I need to take the time to do it once in a while. I am busy to say the least. It's such a great busy though. I am back in school full time, which is a chore in and of itself. It's really important to me to finish and get my degree...even though I have been in school for five years now, I will finish someday. I am also the beehive advisor in the Young Women's and give the lesson every Sunday. I love this but it's hard sometimes to find the time to prepare a lesson. Last but not least, I am working hard to lose the weight that my little darlings helped me gain. It's a slow process but slow and steady is the key I guess.

The boys are doing great and growing like weeds. They are starting to react to things and are smiling and laughing more! We are so in love with them. They have such different personalities.

Stedson: He is so subdued and mild. He is a FANTASTIC baby. He usually has to eat second, bathe second, be held second, everything. Sometimes I feel really guilty about this, but I know that he will sit patiently until it's his turn. He has turned into the cutest little chunk. When I think of how far he has come since he was born I am simply amazed. He is gaining weight like crazy and boy does the kid like to eat. When he gets super hungry (which is most of the time) he attacks the bottle like a ferocious lion and his right leg twitches like a dog. It's the cutest thing I have ever seen. He is sleeping so great, usually four or five sometimes even six hours in a row. He is smiling and laughing a lot and is so cuddly. We LOVE him!

Treydon (Trey Dog):
Treydon is literally the opposite of his brother. He is fiesty to say the least. He knows what he wants and he isn't afraid to scream, arch his back and simply throw a tantrum until he gets it. He loves to be held. Most of the time I am more than happy to cuddle him, but sometimes I need to get a few things done (like feed his brother). He is so smiley. He reacts to our voices and is starting to enjoy games like "Patty Cake" and "Peek-A-Boo". He loves bath time and loves it when I tickle his face. He is so observant and has the biggest, bluest eyes that are constantly scanning his surroundings. He wakes up so happy in the mornings and wants to play and talk to his mommy all morning long. He LOVES getting his picture taken and instantly smiles when I pull the camera out. We LOVE him!

Jase is such a great dad. I get teary eyed when I think about how much he loves his boys and how much he helps out. He wakes up with a baby every single night and then goes to work the next day. He lets me sleep in on Saturday mornings and gives me a break at nights to workout or take a bath. I really couldn't ask for a better husband or dad for my babies. I love him SO much


  1. keep blogging!! We love looking at the blog and reading about you and the boys! They are getting so big, and it sounds like you are an awesome mommy. Heavenly Father must have known you would be, that is why he sent you two boys at one time. We hope to meet them soon.
    Jessica and Quinn
