Two bears

These two bears Darrian has had since he was born. He did not pay attention to them for a long time, then all of a sudden he started to take notice of them. After the boys were born he started calling them Quincy and Miles. He rocks them to sleep, puts them down in the cribs, and even wants to put diapers on them. It is really sweet to see him take care of them the way we take care of his baby brothers, and to be so gentle with them. Very cute.


Summer is here, Darrian is out of school.. and the days are long. :) We have been filling their time with picnics, and daycamp for Darrian. He really has been loving that. It is really reasonable and he goes from 9 am to 3 pm. It was too much of a commitment for us to sign up for a week at a time, but the cool thing is they allow drop in's so we can pick the dates that work for us. We also have a pool set up in the backyard and I put the slide into it to create a mini oasis for Darrian. Our community has a pool and we spend a LOT of time there. Usually once a day, some days twice. It is free, and a great way for Darrian to get his energy out.

The twins have also started eating solids which is fun, it is hard to actually put time aside to feed them both but we try and do it at the same time. Miles isn't very into it, and Quincy is all about it.

thank goodness for jumpers

These keep the boys pretty entertained, Miles is starting to realize it is something to keep him in one place and would rather be crawling around.. but he still enjoys it overall so we are using both of them still.

6 months old..

The twins are (were) six months old! The month went by so fast, and so many changes.
Miles started crawling, Quincy is so close. Miles says "Mama", Quincy is cutting his first tooth. Both are so full of personality and smiles, and laughs. Unique little individuals. I love seeing them smile at each other, or crack up at their big brother Darrian. This is hard work trying to balance three small children, and life.. but it is a lot of fun too. SO much love to go around.

We had the 6 month check ups and their stats were:
Miles was 20 lbs 9.5 oz, 28 inches long, and head 17.5 inches
Quincy was 18 lbs 7.9oz, 27 3/4 inches long, and head 17 1/4

here are the pictures I took of them at 6 months..

This is funny, Quincy does not like that Miles crawls so he is slowing him down .
