4 Months

The twins are 4 months old! I really do love every stage but this is such a fun age!!!
At four months they are:
12.24 lbs - 13%
23.5 inches long - 14%
Head 16.25 inches - 72%
14.59 lbs - 33%
24 inches long - 9%
Head 16.5 inches - 61%
They have shared a pack n play and now a crib every night of their lives. They are getting so tall to sleep in the crib this way but we can't bear to make them sleep in separate cribs. Maybe we didn't need to buy that second one...Just kidding, I'm sure we'll use both cribs eventually but for now they take all three naps and sleep in this crib every night together.
Mckinley loves to talk about when she was a baby. "And I was sitting in that chair when I was turning into a baby." "And I was playing with this toy when I was turning into a baby." You get the idea. So cute.
Cute pigtail braids!
Brandon's dad had a total hip replacement right before Christmas and Mckinley was doing his stretches with him. These two sure love each other!
We got a Blendtec for Christmas and have been making all sorts of delicious drinks in it. Can't get enough!
I love me my two babies. I seriously wish the rest of life could just pause for a while so I had enough time to sit and hold and play with them before they grow up!
Mmmm, love this little man.
Nothing better than holding hands while drinking nasty formula.
Kinley didn't want to take a nap today so I told her she didn't have to but a little while later she crashed on the couch and slept for hours, that girl can sleep through anything. Love it.
Oh my gosh we got dumped on today! Brandon and I shoveled the driveway together this morning and then this was when I went out again in the afternoon and shoveled the whole thing by myself. It was a beast!
Me and my little man Tyler.
Okay seriously, aren't twins the funnest?
Brandon with Tyler sleeping on his lap. Love these boys.

2 Pictures

I just had to post these two pictures. Tyler and Kallie have started noticing each other, holding hands (a lot) and even smiling and laughing at each other. Tyler is smiling at nothing else but Kallie. I L.O.V.E. it.
Check out Brandon with all the kids in one cart at Costco. I have taken all three on a few errands alone, but never where I had to use a grocery cart. I put the twins in their double stroller, and Mckinley walked. I guess if I had to, I could do Costco alone. Can you find Kallie?

Okay, twins seriously rock! I love having two babies so much and I feel so lucky all the time that we have two.
Look at these cute kids in their matching shirts. Kallie's says Daddy's Little Princess and Tyler's says Mommy's Little Prince.

I love this picture of my grandma looking at her three little great grand babies.

It's crazy how much these guys have grown in three and a half months! I just saw this cute comparison picture and had to post it. I was hoping to find some fun comparison pictures of Mckinley and Kallie but it wasn't as easy as I thought. I'll find some good ones sometime though.

Brandon's Birthday

Today is Brandon's birthday! He's 29. One more year till the big 30. I'm thinking a cruise for next year maybe? ;)
Breakfast candles.
And just some random pictures from Christmas break/New Years.
Mckinley loves to sleep sideways in beds. Also loves to sleep with her animals.
She LOVED this slinky we got in our stocking from Brandon's parents.
First time painting.
Tyler asleep in the bouncer. So cute! Love this guy. Still crushing on him.
Cute babies! Twins rock. I hope we get another set.
Kinley is such a great sister to these two.
So yeah, I think in my last post I said that Mckinley did the middle of the puzzle if we did the border. Um, later that day she started doing the whole thing by herself and now she does it multiple times a day and does it as fast as I would. We brought it to Church on Sunday and she did it on the floor. A few times.
 New Years Eve is  big deal at Brandon's parents house. We always have Chinese take out and pop lots of poppers and things with confetti. We had a good time.
Kinley eating pizza with her cousins (pizza for the kids, Chinese for the adults). 
 Confetti...Lots of it.
I think we had midnight at around 9:00 or something.
Me chillin with the babies hoping to avoid getting blasted with silly string. (It worked.)
We had lots of late nights and missed naps over the holidays so we found her like this a few times. Totally out. But still holding the phone. :)
New Years Day we had a thing with my extended family at the Church. Potluck and games. It was really fun.
Their shirts say I was born at Timpanogos Regional Hospital. I love matching outfits on boy/girl twins!
