what we've been up to

left the babies on their play mat to play {which they were} to shower came back 5 min later and they were out | henry loves his sleep sack. i seriously swear by them! | their 10 week picture. they are currently 11 weeks! | henry wasn't happy about not being held | sunday walk with my little family. boy, i love that man | silly campbell sticking her tongue out | family date to froyo | nothing better than a clean babe in jammies | watching their very first show. baby einstein. they loved it til they both fell asleep.

beautiful spring day for a walk by the temple | cuties in jammies | family walks are becoming my favorite thing | taken on of those days where i just needed a good cry | gosh, i love these two. always making us laugh with their silly faces | my little flirt | sleepy girl | my love | family shopping day at city creek 

when you're a mom time flies by. how has it been 11 weeks since these two joined our family? weird thing is it feels like they have always been part of our family. i love them so much! it's so fun to watch them grow and do new things. somedays i feel like i got this whole mom thing down and then i have days where i feel like i have no idea what i am doing. 

yesterday henry and campbell had their 2 month well check which included shots. we did it 2 weeks late due to henrys cast appointments. {update on that in a minute} they did so great. they both screamed for a few minutes and then they fell asleep in their car seats. they are growing big and healthly little peanuts. henry weighs 9lbs 12 oz and is 20 1/4 in. campbell weighs 8lb 11 oz and is 21 in. can you even believe that 11 weeks ago they were 4 lbs and some. so proud of my babies for growing! 

henry currently has his last cast which is gets off monday then will get his braces. he will wear those for a few months 23 hours a day and then only when he sleeps after that. he has constantly been surprising us with how tough he is through this whole thing. he is fussy occasionally but nothing extreme. he is so chill at all his cast appointments and never fusses only when he gets a bath after they take it off. homeboy hates that part. luckily at home he is starting to love them more! his club foot is something he will never remember. only when we tell him. part of wishes we waited because he is so small but, you know what i am so glad we didn't. he wont remember this at all and he will be able to learn to crawl and walk like any other baby when the time comes. henry, is such a sweet and sometimes grumpy boy. i love him and secretly love that he is a momma's boy at times. dan gets jealous but, campbell is a daddys girl so we are even. henry loves to stare at the tv or the toys hanging from their play mat. he will sit there forever just looking. he is starting to find his hands and loves to pull mommys hair {which is why i am chopping it next week!} he is our little chunky monkey and loves to eat. he eats almost 5 oz each feeding! 

our sweet campbell is doing so well. already 8lbs 11oz and getting some rolls on her legs. she is eating 4 oz each feeding give or take a few. she has the cutest belly and loves when you give her raspberries. when she isn't sleeping she is kicking up a storm and really wiggling. i think she may be a they hyper one out of the two. campbell is a total daddys girl and anytime dan walks in the room she looks at him and follows him with her eyes. she is the best little snuggler and loves to curl up to you. i love her sweet yet spunky already personality. if she isn't happy she will let you know with her lungs. just like henry she loves to pull my hair. boy it hurts. campbell loves her brother and will look at him anytime they are laying by each other while he just ignores her. haha. last night was the first time in a long time they slept together because she has been stuffy and has been sleeping in the bouncer. it was so cute to see them sleeping next to each other! they are twins that for sure! 

there you have a little update on our precious twins. our lives have been changed for the better and we just love them. sure, we are tired but, when they look at you it makes it all worth it. the doctor gave us the go ahead to start letting them sleep longer at night. the longest they've gone is 4 hrs which felt amazing. im hoping to sleep train them in the coming weeks. they are very good sleepers so, im praying it goes smoothly. wish us luck!

three years down, and eternity to go


3 years. that's how long it's been since that day. the day i put on my white dress and finally married my best friend. in these last 3 years i have learned more about him and myself than i thought was possible. on that day i thought i loved him more than i ever could. i was wrong. i am pretty sure i fall a little bit more in love with him each and every day. i feel like 3 years of marriage means we go this thing down for the most part. sure, we have our times when things aren't perfect but, that is what makes it amazing! 

i could list a million reasons why i love daniel  and love being married to him but, watching him become a father to our babies has been one of the most amazing experiences thus far. he is amazing with them. i always knew he would be but, seeing him hold our babies for the first time was overwhelming. i was overcome with an amazing amount of love for him and our family. 

marriage isn't always easy but, it's so worth it. i even wrote a post about that once. read it here

xoxo
here's to an eternity of being stuck with me!
