All three boys

Over the weekend I made this showing all three boys at 8 months in the bath. It is Miles, Darrian in the middle, then Quincy. I will share the rest of the pictures later.

Darrian jumping in the pool

Darrian has had a really full summer. Summer camp was a huge hit, and a real life saver. The pool has been lots of fun too. Darrian is very comfortable in the water and this summer started jumping in. He is going to have his first formal lessons soon. Can't wait to see my little fish swim on his own, hopefully next summer.

Twin Kisses, Brothers

I took this video last month of Quincy and Miles. You will see Quincy see me and start to fuss, Miles crawls over rubs his head, gives him a kiss.. and then plops down on him. It is the sweetest thing ever.

7 months

7 months came and went, with no blog update. So sad. I hope that 8 months won't fall in the same pattern. I won't make any promises, truth is it is real hard to find a moment to do this.. but it is important to me so I must. Month 7 was all about mobility. Increase speed in mobility, pulling up, sitting up.. reaching, grabbing, and in Miles case putting EVERYTHING in his mouth. Month 7 took the rhythm that I thought we had and threw it out the window. We never used gates with Darrian, month 7 three kids, two mobile babies had me begging my Mom friends for left over gates. (Luckily we got one). Teething really started kicking our butt. Miles has two bottom teeth, Quincy has two top and two bottom. There are days I wish we never got teeth, I feel bad and don't have enough hands to console two fussy babies.

They are however simply adorable. They are so fun to watch. They love playing together already, babble together, and they even console each other with kisses. It is so sweet to see, and really amazing to watch. They are so different not just in looks, but in being. Quincy is funny. He is the class clown. Funny faces, raspberries when eating (or not), and a smirk that let's you know he has something up his sleeve a mile away. Miles is happy go lucky, off into EVERYTHING. He crawled into the fireplace, through barriers three times. You can not turn your head from him for a moment. When you do, and he is off, I go after him, he picks up speed and squeals and giggles all the way. Miles has been shaking his head "no" for almost two months, this month he taught Quincy that trick. In exchange Quincy taught Miles his signature crinkled nose smile.

My Miles.. those rolls are so squishable.

Quincy my funny guy with the funny expressions..

throwback twin pictures

I was looking back at this blog, mainly to see how much I have been slacking on updating this blog. I realized I never posted these pictures. I think because I was using them for birth announcements and didn't want to share them before they got mailed. I can't believe 8 months later I never did post them. eek. Here they are. Gosh the boys were so tiny, and squishable. It took some serious patient and talent for these pictures. Trying to get just one newborn to sleep, pose and so on is hard.. two makes it impossible almost. Lorraine did a great job, and I am so happy to have these.

I remember the picture below being taken, and I was thinking this is what they looked like inside me. they were only 10 days old. It is crazy what my body did, simply amazing. Quincy left, Miles right.
