August 19th-31st in picture

August 19th
Sunglasses and Scriptures
Ezra spent the whole day walking around looking like this.

Lately Ezra has been really into sunglasses. His new thing is to pull them down to the end of his nose and say "Hi" (like some movie star) push them back up and wave and walk away. He is so cute!

Did you ever dress alike with a sibling or a friend when you were younger? Whenever I did I called it "twiners"

So here are my twins as twiners....
The last time I dressed up as twiners was with my friend Tiffany in High School. It was the last day of Junior or Senior year, I can't remember. I do remember what we wore.....Blue American Eagle shirts, black capri pants, black flip flops and wavy hair. Oh, those were the days:)

"This is the life!"
Ezra is REALLY into this hat!!!

We have to hide it from him so he won't wear it all the time and pry it off his head some nights before bed.

We joke around that he is our little hobo. This day in particular he looked like a hobo as he decided to drag around this Trader Joe's bag.

I made this bow for Lucy before she was born, out of ribbon my sister used for my shower. She was sleeping so sweetly I couldn't resist doing a little photo shoot.

August 22nd
YES.....I know this bow is as big as her head.

Lucy looks like such a little lady! Thank you Jenna for the cute dress.
August 24th
Sibling Love
This was totally unposed. I walked in to check on L&L and I found Levi had his arm around Lucy. I got the camera out and started snapping away.

Mr. Potato Head
I was feeding the babies and Ezra comes in eating a whole potato. Some kids get into candy, my boy gets into potatoes.

It's really hard to eat when your sister has her feet in your face!

August 26th
Uncle Aaron

Lucy, Daddy and Ezra

My Parents live in Australia so I can't get the regular picture of Grandpa and the babies so I got creative....Levi & Grandpa

Lucy & Grandpa
These are pictures I took while Skyping with my Dad.

Twin nursing pillow, this pillow is so awesome! I can't wait until the babies can eat well enough on their own so they can nurse together and I can use this pillow.

August 29th
Mommy Levi & Lucy

So I was tired so looking like a shlumpadinka (a word made up by Oprah)!!!! What is a shlumpadinka? You can look it up on Basically it's woman who usually has several kids, who wearing the sweats she has worn for the last two days and has given up on the way she looks. I haven't given up on my looks, I just don't have the time. I have to fight for the chance to eat! Most of my meals are spent with one baby nursing and the other is usually crying. I was so tired of looking terrible ALL the time that I took a little time and made myself look presentable. F.Y.I. The babies were crying and I missed breakfast to achieve a little prettiness.

August 31st

How sweet sharing the bouncy seat.......

The happiness didn't last long....less then two minutes.

So we've done a photo shoot of the babies since all these pictures were taken but that's about it. Things have been WAY too crazy! I started this post on the 7th and today is the 15th!!! Yes that's how long it takes me to do a post these days.

We still have Thrush but I'm hoping we are on the tail end of it (fingers crossed). Their colds seem to be better...YAY! I got a breast infection on the other side:( but I am better now:) Levi's eating pretty good :) but Lucy still is having a hard time:( They both still have a way to go before they are pros.... I hope it gets easier soon! Yesterday (most days) I had one off them attached to me the whole day, not the whole day just 19 hours of a 24 period. We are all worn out! Ezra is "TWO"..... not really but he sounds like a two year old. Every answer is no. For some reason he says no when he wants to say yes. We are working on this. Levi is getting heavy and long. Lucy is petite.

I am thankful we are on the path to healthy! I am also thankful for my trials. I see others who are dealing with their trails and I'm thankful for mine. I am glad our Heavenly Father knows each of us and knows what we can handle!!!

The adventure continues.....

You look AMAZING! The babies are so cute and I can tell they are getting bigger! I can't believe how big Ezra is! I am glad things are looking good!

David and Melissa Gardner said...

I love that you said that about Ezra because Ryan is doing the same thing. It doesn't matter if he wants it or not the answer is "no!" I'm glad it's not just us. Yay for babies and mommy getting better! Oh and by the way, loved the BYU bow, you know us too well!

You look so good! I'm glad things are getting a little bit easier these days!

I just caught up on your last couple posts. Wish I had time to comment more! (and you know why I'm short on time! :) I can totally relate with how long it takes to do a quality blog post! That's why my delivery-day post took so dang long. I have to settle for short little ones :) I totally know what you mean about being grateful for your own trials and not having some one else's. Sounds like we've both had a rough month! But it can only get better, right? :) Way to go on handling everything so well. Just know there's someone out there that can empathize with the double-challenges and double-joy of what you've gone through and are going through!
