Dear Paxton and Kellen,

Well, my loves, tomorrow we hit another milestone, 18 months. This is my message to you on this milestone...I will always provide a safe place for you to fall, a laugh at your joke, a shoulder when your heart breaks, a vision for all that your future can be, a loving relationship with your father, discipline when you falter, and most importantly when you walk into a room my eyes will always light up. For you, my angels, are wanted, valued, treasured and never to be taken for granted.

Kellen: You are loving, sweet, and sensitive beyond measure. When you are happy you laugh so hard you shake, when you are mad you scream so loud you shake. And everything in the middle is pure joy. You love your brother, hugging and patting him, but you will take anything in his hands! You have the cutest run I have ever seen, will run 100mph when you see a binky, and love nothing more than to be in water. You are so smart, you imitate everything mommy and daddy do...especially your daddy's dancing! Kel-bug, getting to know you over the last 18 months has been nothing but divinity. Your smile, your eyes, and sweet cheeks make my heart swell with love.

Paxton: My sweet, sweet Paxton...you are a riot. Mommy and daddy call you a cool cucumber, nothing really seems to bother you. You are so laid back, you just roll with the punches. You almost never cry unless you are exhausted or bump your head too hard. Your smile is contagious, and you have never met a stranger. While you are laid back, you are totally full of spunk and personality. But not enough spunk that you wont still cuddle. You will climb into my lap, lay on your stomach while resting your head on my chest. These moments mean the world to me. Pac-man, learning who you are over the last 18 months has been nothing but heaven. Your smile, your eyes, and fat cheeks make my heart swell with love.

We love you so much! Happy 18 month birthday!!!

My Snoozing Sweathearts

There's two to wash, there's two to dry,
There's two who argue, there's two who cry.
One's in the mud having a ball,
The other holds a crayon, marking the wall.
Some days seem endless, my patience grows thin.
Why was I chosen to be a mother of twins?

The answer comes clear at the end of each day, As I tuck them in bed and to myself say, There's two to kiss, there's two to hug, And best of all, there's two to love! -Author Unknown

You are Cute, Kid!

It is about time...

for a new blog post! We have been so busy, and have topped off the past two weeks with colds. Which led to me having no voice over the last several days, but I am back!!! We are loving the summer, just trying to stay cool from 100 degree weather. I will post about specific events later, but here are some pictures to hold everyone over...kinda a potluck of pics over the last several weeks. For now I have gotta go bake my hubby's bday cake!!

Kellen is a cool kid...

And no, my flash did not even wake him!

Update on Pax

Thanks everyone for the comments and emails, I really do appreciate any suggestions or advice. Pax is doing much better today. The swelling as of this morning has completely gone down. The redness, which looked like Tabasco had been poured all over his body, is gone. We are now left with a nasty rash, head to toe, but we have seen this rash once before with a prescription he was given for eczema. So we know this rash will probably take a few weeks to heal, but at least he is back to himself. Now on with the long, arduous task of keeping anything peanut related away from a toddler.
