I wanna eat them up!

These boys are just the cutest!

Holding hands, best friends

My boys always know when I am unavailable. I was pumping for the 9000th time the other day and they were hysterical. This is what I found when I was done. Notice the pooled tears below his left eye. Breaks my heart. You know he's thinking "Mom, where were you? How could you leave me?" Sweet baby...


We're getting to be ol' pros at the whole rice cereal thing. Maybe we'll start up those yummy veggies soon.

Charlie: Of course he loved's food!
Dylan: Look at that food pooling in his mouth. It probably was spit at me.
The things you get to look forward to as a mom!

Watch out, I'm on the move!

Dylan has figured out how to roll over! He is just so smart. His brother has no interest in that. I mean, why roll over when you can just whine and someone will move you where ever you want to go. He is just content to eat and lay there.

Almost every morning I find Dylan on his tummy. He must be a tummy sleeper like his mommy.

5 months...getting bigger every day!

I cannot believe that I have 2 healthy, beautiful 5 month old baby boys! I just am amazed every day at how blessed I am to have them here with us! I even got some smiles caught on camera. That itself is a miracle!

Nauvoo, IL

We had our first vacation last month. Me, Dylan, Charlie and Granna went to visit my parents in Nauvoo, IL. They have never met my babies in person so it was very sweet to be able to take them out there. My parents will be home in June and then the spoiling can begin. It was a wonderful trip (and quite hilarious at times trying to lug these boys through the airport)! All the Sisters there serving were so excited to see my boys. My mom had told them all about them so they are quite famous. There were even gifts brought over to the house. I am just floored by the generosity of those women. It was great to see my mom & dad, but it was hard to be away from Brandt that whole time, too. It was FREEZING there, one night it got down to -20 degrees. Too cold for my blood. It's pretty pathetic when you think it is hot when it is 30 degrees outside. And I thought it was cold here in Utah. I don't think I can ever complain again. Both boys caught a cold while we were there and Charlie had a fever one day. That was probably more tough on me than on them. It just breaks your little heart to see your babies sick. Other than that, it all went well. Here are some pictures from our adventure.
Dylans' 1st time on an airplane - He did great!
Charlie's 1st airplane ride. You can tell what he did most the time.
My parents performing. They sing a solo and here they are in their glory.
