1st Birthday Pictures

I've been meaning to get the boys' pictures taken for their first birthday but Christmas was a little busy. So we had it done at 13 months instead. I think this is fair because really it's halfway between their actual birthdate and the day they were due to be born. So who really knows how old they are anyway??? So here are our little munchkins at about 1 year...

Wesley and Sammy



What did I ever do to deserve these awesome little blessings?!

Mom Jeans

I have a confession to make...

I'm addicted to elastic waistbands. Yes, I got so used to my pregnancy pants that I can't bring myself to give them up. I was on babysteals the other day and saw these.

They arrived today. I'm wearing them now and I never want to take them off! They are sooooo comfortable! I highly recommend them.
Mom jeans will never be the same. Wooohooo!

Accentuate the Positive

Last month we took a trip to St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands and for many reasons I won't get into, it was not what you'd shall I put this...a relaxing experience in paradise. But I am going to skip past all of that and focus on the positive aspects of our trip...

First of all, we were blessed to have the opportunity to see this beautiful place with our own eyes! Isn't it gorgeous?! It was like something out of a magazine!

We got to have sweet moments together as a family, uninterrupted by phones, constructions noises, or the worries of everyday life.

We spent time with good friends.

Some people thought they were triplets! Can you imagine?! I guess I can see why. Although Josh is six months younger, he's about the same size as our little guys.

We saw interesting wildlife.

We picked up some new skills, like pushing our own stroller,

driving (only 1 and already asking for the keys to the car!),

walking in the sand,

and even eating some!

We dined al fresco,

and flirted with all the waitresses (Wes and Sam did anyway).

Got to ride on Daddy's back in a backpack!

We experimented with hats,

and decided that while we look darned good in them,

we prefer to throw them on the ground.

Maybe someday we'll go back, when we're old enough to snorkel and can tolerate air travel better. Or maybe Mom and Dad will just go without us. Now that's an idea!!!
