Wesley & Audrey are Two Months

My sweet babies are two months old.
Wesley is 11 pounds 12 ounces (50th percentile) and 22-3/4"(50th percentile).
Audrey is 11 pounds (45th percentile) and 22" (45th percentile).

Wes seems sooo much bigger than Audrey. I guess on a baby 12 ounces is a lot because I can tell how much heavier he is than her when I pick him up.  Buster! (Pictures by Evan)
Overall they are great! Sleeping about 5-6 hours a night. I feel like I have completely slacked on their schedule. They haven't been napping in cribs and I haven't really been sticking to a consistent schedule. Sleep training has kind of been put on hold. It's so SO much harder with two. Especially if I'm trying to keep them on the same feeding schedule. And now that they will be going to daycare soon it all seems pointless. I know it isn't pointless but it's hard to maintain. If I was off a few more weeks I think it would be better but of course that can't happen. 
Wesley's head is still misshaped so they doctor had me make sure he isn't favoring one side over the other and he will reevaluate at their four month appointment.  I'm hoping we can fix it in the next two months. 
About it for now since I have two big kids dying to go outside!

What's Going On

This will be a random post that will mostly be pictures. We are crazy busy around here and it's hard to find time to sit down and blog. When I do have a minute to sit down I usually spend it completely zoned out trying to relax. I'm down to 1-1/2 weeks left of maternity leave and I have mixed feelings about it. Part of me is ready to get back to work where I can relax and not worry about anything. My job is pretty low stress (when I let it be) and it's SUPER easy compared to taking care of these four munchkins. I'm pretty sure at this point you could give me almost any job in the world and I would find it a piece of cake compared to the last 7-1/2 weeks :) I will miss my kiddos like crazy though while I'm at work. And since the twins aren't sleeping through the night yet (we're up to 5-6 hours though) I'm sure I'll be even more exhausted than I am now.
So what's been going on. Well first Evan had his five year checkup and he is 44 pounds (75th percentile) and 42 inches tall (30th percentile). I sure hope he didn't get my shortyness, he seems average to other kids his age though so I'm not too worried. He got all his shots to get him ready for kindergarten (which I still can't believe that is only 6 weeks away).  The boy is all about some Lego's since his birthday. It would be super great if I didn't have to build them all first but oh well.
Erin turns three in one month. I cannot believe that either. She is by far my most challenging right now but my goodness do I adore her. She is everything I wanted in a daughter, sweet, sassy, smart and downright hilarious.
Love her sweet face. And does she love her baby sister, oh my goodness. She loves Wes too of course but she dotes on sweet Audrey. 
The babies are doing great, growing like weeds. Wes has made the biggest transformation, he's huge! Well surpassed Audrey in weight, their eight week appointment is Monday and I can't wait to see how much he weighs. Chunky monkey!
He is super terrible at tummy time and while he doesn't mind it, he just lays there rarely lifting his head. I think he has good head control from when I am just holding him upright but I'm a little concerned at his lack of effort. 
My worry might also be that Audrey does really well at tummy time. She lifts her head a lot and for long stretches of time. I'm sure I will always be comparing milestones with the twins but I probably shouldn't since all babies are different!
(the tongue is out, she's concentrating)
Poor girl is balding too. And she has a bad case of baby acne. Oh well, hopefully it'll be a short phase. She's still cute though :) she reminds me so much of Erin at that age. 
Starting to get some smiles here and there from the twins. I just love that. They never smile at the same time though of course. 
Well that's about it for now. Hopefully I'll be able to update next week when the twins turn 2 months!

Evan is Five!

How is he five you ask? I have no idea. For real. The fastest five years of my life!
We just adore this boy more and more. He does fight with his sister a fair share but other than that he is the sweetest boy in the world.

 He's super into Star Wars anything, and has started to really really like Legos. I can't say that I mind either, I think they are fun to put them together.

 We celebrated his birthday by going to the zoo and the splash park at the zoo.
The previous weekend Todd took him camping and he loved it. He got to drive a boat for the first time and that made his year. Happy Birthday Evan, we love you so much!
