Four Months already?




I can't believe Lily and Carter are four months. Well, I can. It has been a long four months because they are a lot of work, but it also feels like it has gone fast too. They had their check-up the other day and they are doing well. They are starting to be a little more interactive and we have started to sleep train them a little. I hate hearing them cry but they need to learn to soothe themselves or we all might go bonkers! Lily has a little harder time than Carter but all in all they are doing well and sleeping 5-6 hour stretches at night now. This helps me a little but I am still tired in the morning. Getting up at 2 and then at 5 is better but still not great. I told Jeff last night that I just want 2 days of bed rest back. Not too much but just some time all to myself to catch up, oh well. I know it will be over soon and I will wonder where the time went. Will I ever be a morning person again and get a workout in EVER? Soon, I know. They are so fun though, laughing and cooing and smiling. I love these little people and I mean little




Their stats at four months:


Lily :


9 lb. 8 oz.(below the charts)


21 3/4 in.(below the charts)


head 15.5 in(10th percentile)




Carter:


10 lb. 6 oz. (below the charts)


22 3/4 in. (below the charts)


head 16 in (15th percentile)




As you can see we have little peanuts but they sure do have brains! We love you little guys!

Things I don't want to forget











I have been a horrible blogger lately. I should be better now that I have two more people to talk about but it has been hard. Anyway, there are some things I want to write down before I forget them.

Dallin:
Sneaking candy at all times of the day
you are so social, you always want to play with friends or family members
wearing your buzz costume as much as possible
you played soccer this season and loved it
falling asleep at 6 pm many days because you are so exhausted. Always falling asleep in church
going commando all night because mom let you get dressed by yourself after your bath
asking Alexa to teach you how to be good
always making some kind of noise with your mouth
talking in your sleep
giving great hugs

Alexa:
Always writing some kind of story
you also love to be with friends, and everyone is your friend no matter what their age!
never putting your socks in the laundry.
growing out of all of your clothes, stop growing will ya?!
loving second grade
scored 2 goals this soccer season
you always look beauiful, you have great hair and beautiful eyes
you call me out. For example yesterday at Target I couldn't remember what I needed and you asked, "why don't you ever have a list mom?" busted!
you always try to be your best
you are starting to get an opinion and that is probably a good thing
lots of hugs and kisses especially when it is time to go to bed!

Carter:
lots of smiles
lots of cooing and talking
lots of crying
not much sleeping:)

Lily:
Lots of smiles
you are tiny!
not much talking yet
not much sleeping:)

not the most exciting post but it lets you know the good the bad and the ugly.




p.s. blogger will not let me move my pictures! Does anyone know why?

Halloween 2009 and some cute babies

We had a great Halloween! It all started with a parade at Dallin's preschool. He was buzz Lightyear and he loved every minute of it. This was on Thursday and he has worn it everyday since. He was so excited and kept saying, "To Infiniti and Beyond!" He also got to wear his costume to soccer on Saturday. I have pictures of that but I am trying to get these up while the twins are asleep and they are on another camera so that will have to come later. Alexa's school is LAME, well it is the county. They don't let them dress up or have a party, lame, lame! She had to wait until Saturday, but she had a ton of fun at the ward trunk or treat and then trick or treating. She woke up Saturday with a cold and almost missed the fun but she perked up that evening and had a great time. I was so glad that she did because she had been saying in her prayers all week for a great holiday with the family. That little girl is the cutest thing ever! The twins were also very festive as Santa and Mrs. Claus. The cutest baby clauses ever!!! I still can't belive Halloween is over! Being on bedrest all summer really has me all messed up. I still think it should be summer time because I missed it all. I can't believe I bought egg nog today and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It will be Christmas before we know it! Enjoy all the pictures.
