Okay, you get the point. They always look different!
We've been hanging out with old friends that I haven't seen in years, and have been discovering tons of cool new parks! I still get homesick for Charlotte, my old friends, and my parents, but the longer we live here, the more Utah is starting to feel like home :)
We found a nice park we can walk to from our house, and we go there several times a week! Sometimes to tire the kids out before bed, and other days we'll go first thing in the morning and eat breakfast at the park. Kyler is really big into "picnics" these days.
It's been nice living close to so much family, I met Jared's Aunt Linda for the first time, and she gifted the twins with these blankets/bears
Kyler loves having so many cousins to play with, and we always have nieces/nephews that want to hold the babies:
We've been on several date nights, thanks to our older nieces for babysitting. Last week we went to the temple!
We also got to see our niece, Rachel, get baptized! How cute is that grin?!
The twins are 9.5 months old, and we just completely switched to formula! Breastfeeding them was wonderful- I miss our quiet bonding time-just us three snuggled all close together, but I was ready to be done, and they were ready to be done too! Every time I would nurse them they seemed uninterested and kept trying to roll off the pillow and crawl away to go play. They love their bottles now, and we are all happy. It's so nice not having to plan our outings around when they need to nurse- I just bring bottles!
Lyla falls asleep while playing with her hands, and we used to find her sleeping like this all the time:
Look how tiny!
...and here was last weeks...
Speaking of baby booties, My mom's friend from Chile made these little booties for the twins:
I was feeding the twins breakfast last week, when I decided to pull out the fancy camera and snap a few pictures of them... I was rushing the morning routine so we could make it to an appointment on time, but then I just couldn't help but pause and soak up how little and cute they still are....so we had a mini photo shoot- and I still made it to my appointment on time. BAM. They're actually eating in all of these pictures- that's how I got them to hold so still ;p I literally picked them up out of their highchairs and put them on this blanket. They have been eating in just diapers lately because they get so messy! Lyla was already holding that airplane she had found prior to breakfast. I do admit that I pulled a cheerio off that was stuck to Ryan's stomach, and threw a headband on Lyla- she usually doesn't eat in those because, again, messy. Other than that, this was spur of the moment haha, and these types of photo shoots are always my favorite!
Kyler was helping by making them smile:
Ryan stuffing food in his mouth haha:
...and Ryan sneezing, this one is my fav. Food coming out of Ryan's mouth, and Lyla's face cracks me up:
These are all Charlie Banana Cloth diapers pictured here. Read THAT review HERE. Gosh I love these babies!
...and my BIG baby too ;) who is too cool and refuses to put up with my photo shoots:
