Toddler Beds

I've been putting it off for months...Tonight we finally turned the twins cribs into toddler beds...What is the first thing they do?...
Jump some more
Seth switched Sami's bed first, so while he is switching Weston's, they both pretend sleep in her bed.

So they are fighting there nap time now. I thought if we switched to toddler beds they would never nap again. Sam and Wes are 2 1/2, to early to dump nap time (in my opinion).
Normal bedtime routine, brush teeth, diaper change, put on jammies, scriptures, prayers, kisses and off to bed. Tonight we read scriptures in their room, knelt at their beds for prayers, kisses, tuck in bed and leave. Haven't heard a peep from them since. I expected coming out of their room a hundred times. (I'm sure that will still happen in the future) I don't think they actually slept during nap time today (helps with the falling asleep tonight). Seth thinks they were very excited to sleep in their "new" beds tonight. We'll see if they stay in bed all night. I'm interested to see when they will get out of bed in the morning, when they aren't stuck in bed til I get up...

Rice cereal...already?

So Sunday morning Jax tried rice cereal for the first time and I won't say ate...slurped all of it. I think he loved being in the high chair at the dinner table with everyone. So he has had cereal with us every night since. He is getting so big, so fast. Just got out the 9 month clothes. He has a super long body and needs that size for onesies. Isn't he adorable...I love his crazy hair!!!

Do you like Sami's hairdo?
Eli wanted to play with Sami's hair. Luckily Sami was a willing participant.

This is Weston's stance when he wants to race.
Sometimes that's all you get..arms and smile...and your supposed to know what he wants.

Funny thing is...he doesn't really race. He almost always starts and holds back to make sure Sami is in front. Such a sweet kid. If you listen really close, he says...on your MARK get SET GO!!

And if your in the van with us, you'll light light GOOOOO
Back seat drivers already!

Daddy holding his kids

My heart just melts when I see Seth interacting with the kids.
Of course that's like everyday, because he is a great Dad.
This was my view one Saturday morning.
I'm so blessed!


So Sami got up from her nap a few Sundays back, wet everywhere. We were having a messy dinner or I couldn't find pj or I can't remember now...I decided to let her wear one of my shirts. I don't know running around in just her diaper is not modest...
I liked Wes' Risky Business look, all he needed was the sunglasses!
So he whined at me till he was matching his sister. I gave in and Seth rolled his eyes and made a comment about his son wearing girl shirts.
It's most likely my fault, I always want them to match. Look what I've started!

Can someone explain why they fold their arms when I want to take their picture and refuse during our nightly prayers? I was trying to get them to unfold their arms in this picture.
I thought his pouty lips were cute in this picture. Can't seem to manage his crazy hair.

I picked out the outfit. Sami picked the accessories!
Love the sunglasses on the forehead...inside.
Wes had to say "cheese"
My kids...
