Happy 6th Months Babies!


I can hardly believe that they have been here for half a year already! When they were born I didn't think it would be possible to love them any more than I did at that moment but that wasn't true. As each day passes I love them more and more. I hope the next 6 months goes by a little slower!

Matthew mastered the art of rolling over last night and now there is no way he will stay on his back so he was freed of his swaddle last night. I don't think he was very happy about it as he didn't sleep well at all. Brady on the other hand is sleeping 10x better without his swaddle on. He kept breaking free of it and needing to be reswaddled several times a night so we took him out of it 3 nights ago and he loves being free! Cameron wakes up 90% of the time with both arms out so I think we will unswaddle him tonight and see how that goes. Aubrey never even attempts to break free so we are going to let her stay swaddled until she shows us she doesn't want to anymore.

Last night we went out for a walk for the first time in their quad stroller. It attracted quite a bit of attention but they loved that they were sitting up and able to look all around at everything. Thank you Felthun Family for giving us this stroller, I am sure that we will have many more outings with it!


Sunday my dad and I went shopping and he got the babies all sorts of summer outfits, sandals and sunglasses. I can't wait to see how cute they are going to look in them all! They wore their sunglasses yesterday on our walk and did great with them.

Below are some videos of our happy babies. Seeing them smile and laugh erases all the bad days or sleepless nights. There isn't a better sight in the world!


  1. So cute!! They'll get used to sleeping without swaddles - the first night or two can be tough, though. - Tkeys

  2. Um are they wearing sunglasses? HAHAHA to stinkin cute. I don't know which one is which, but the one wearing the green and brown monkey outfit (one of my fav outfits in which Coen owns) looks EXACTLY like Ben. I love Aubrey's little smile:) Time is flying, you have perfect babies, Ben is healthy- life is good!

  3. OMG they are 6 months already. I am with you, time is going by too fast. I'm so glad they are healthy and learning so much each day. The quad stroller is just adorable. I'm sure you get attention like crazy. I sometimes forget we have twins until people go gaga over them. Happy St. Patty's Day and Happy 6 months babies!!!!

  4. so adorable!! nothing sounds sweeter than a baby laugh!!


We've been FLOCKED!

Nine years ago this summer there was so much uncertainty, would Ben make it through his treatments?  Would I be able to carry all four babi...
