The boys are going to be 7 weeks this Saturday, and they have discovered their voices. Their very loud crying voices that is. Not much cooing and happy sounds yet. Just crys. All day; crys. I've separated their beds completely now. I kept trying and going back to the pack and play bassinet because it was so convenient, but I don't think it's safe to have that much weight in it anymore. But I just don't think that's what's wrong. I lay them together on the floor and they still cry. They don't even notice each other at this point. They're usually fine when I hold them. The only problem is that I'm way outnumbered. Since Taylor has started staying home with us, he's feeling a little jealousy and trying to get attention any way he can. Overall, he's behaving well, but when he gets bored or the babies are crying a lot and getting attention, he becomes very demanding. Every thing's getting a little more difficult. I can't wait until the babies start responding to me and smiling because they're happy, not just gassy. I think once I start getting that from them it will help make the day a little more rewarding and therefore not as difficult. ...I hope anyways. Meanwhile, here's what things look like around here a lot these days. Notice their shirts...
Tucker keeps spitting his snooze button out!
I managed to catch Brayden smiling...He must be gassy. = )
Taylor has learned to ride his bike without training wheels! He didn't have much of a choice, one of his training wheels bent in and fell off. He tried riding it with only one training wheel which, in the end, proved harder than none at all. It took him about 30 minutes and most of that time he was resisting and fussing. Once he made up his mind to do it, he was gone. Steering is still a bit of a challenge, and since he forgets about the brakes sometimes, he's had quite a few minor crashes.

All clear!Wade and I were able to take Taylor out for an evening thanks to Jenny, Heather, and Kendra. We ate at Lieutenants and played putt putt. It was nice to have some one on one time with Taylor. We all had a good time.
Can you tell by the smile who got a hole in one on the very first hole?!
