Bottle Feeding, Butt Wiping, Mini Van-Driving Awesome Parents

First and foremost, here is a picture of our newest addition. It's a 2003 Honda Odysssey, and we really like it (shhhh!). It's a little bit older than what we wanted, but it's top of the line and very clean and nice. Shout out to my cousin Adam for the advice on the purchase; he is the Honda Man. So, look for us to roll through your town later this summer when we take our first Party of Five road trip to the Eastside.

And yes, I know what comments I'm about to get on here. I stole some of mom's pictures because SERIOUSLY, I haven't had time to take any!! Free time is spent showering, sleeping or washing baby things. We had a professional photo session last week, so we will soon have lots of gorgeous photos to share. Or you can see them on my Facebook page. Or Tracy's. Or Lee's. Or Mom's. Take your pick.

Ashley took Becca to see her first movie in a theater. They had a great time!

Here is Becca on the morning of her first day at the new daycare. She gets to take her lunch, so she was all about the new Dora lunchbox!
Quick update on Evan and Carley--
Had our two-week checkup yesterday at the clinic. They measure exactly the same in length and head circumference. She outweighs him just a tiny bit. She was 6 lbs, 1.5 oz and He was 5 lbs, 15.5 oz. Just call it 6 lbs!
The doctor says they are doing great and right where he wants them to be. They are eating good, and we're working on getting them to sleep longer between feeding at night. Unfortunately, we've discovered they don't like to sleep between the hours of 11:00pm and about 3:00 am. AGGHH! Other than that, they sleep GREAT. Go figure.
I think we're all adjusting well. If Lee and I can manage to squeeze in a cat nap during the day, even better. Well, someone just pooped so I gotta go! More later....


  1. You are doing a fine job....ALL of you! Even Becca knows that you are supposed to sleep when it's dark outside....let her teach them. Seriously, I don't know how you are going to adjust their hours. Just hang in there. Looks like everything is as normal as normal can be when you have a 3 year old and newborn twins. Can't wait to see y'all again!

    Love to all...
