Kellen's personality has been in full bloom the last couple of weeks. Gosh, he is so delicious I could just eat him up!!! Here are some of my favorite pics over the last few weeks.

Kel's new kissy face!


Aaron was throwing his dirty laundry out of our closet last night (yes, he does have a hamper. And no, I dont know why he has not been using it!), and Kel was fascinated. When Aaron turned around he realized Kel had one of his shirts on! We dont know if Aaron threw it and just landed perfectly around Kel's neck or if Kel put it on!! But cute, cute nonetheless.

Baby Got Back!


Brother steals SUPER-BABY's cape!

And he is off! This kid hates clothes!!!

Our First Haircut!

We had another first today...a haircut. Paxton's wig was OUT OF CONTROL!!! Kellen's hair is literally perfect. But they both got a trim today and look adorable. We played at Davis Kidd after and I felt like I was chasing different children!!!

Moms, can you relate?

You spend hundreds of dollars on toys just to have your kiddos snub them to play on your furniture? And there used to be cute candleholders in this space...BROKEN! And do you see those fingerprints on the window behind them...I IGNORE them!!

But they are so pround when they climb through, you continue to allow it...even when you know you shouldnt.

OR, when the outside of your house looks like this and you cant go outside... resort to playing dress up EVEN if you are dressing your boys up in your accessories!!!

OR, when your kiddos get so dirty at dinner you just swipe the shirt off and dont bother replacing!!

I know I am not alone on this!!!

swaddled in love...

A very good friend of mine is a NICU nurse at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital here in Nashville. And I know all the twin mommys out there have a special place in their heart for the NICU and the nurses that nurture our babies when we couldnt. Here is a post from her blog, which is private, so I wanted to share. If you are interested in donating email me at Here is Scarlett's post:

As we all know I am a nurse in the NICU. I have "runs" of good days where I witness nothing but the endless love and hope parents have for their babies. I think of the neonatal ICU as a roller coaster. The ups and downs is enough to make even the most hopeful parents nauseated. Lately, I am guilty of bringing my work home with me. I have taken care of so many babies where their little life has been full of more challenges than my 28 year old mind can comprehend. Some of the babies stories are more complicated than the typical preemie course. I have told David multiple times that if I could bring babies home from work that need love our house would be full of babies. I think my fellow nurses do a great job at fostering love whenever possible....whether it be immediately following a surgery or in the last moments when parents can't find the strength to be present. I have noticed that simple things such as normal, sweet blankets put in the incubators help moms and dads forget for a moment about the diagnosis and focus on the baby. That is why last year I started a blanket drive "Swaddled in Love" for the babies around Valentines Day. The goal was to receive donations of blankets that are perfect for swaddling. We gathered over 300 blankets. The blankets stay in the NICU and are used from patient to patient (sterilized of course!). It is a great way to give back to the babies and families by offering a soft blanket to be comforted. This year I am going to have our Second Annual Swaddled in Love Blanket Drive. If you are interested in donating a receiving blanket, contact me.
