Life Lately.

I have been so bad at this blogging thing since these babies came along.
I want to be good about it because this thing is like
my journal and i want to be able to look back on it and not
forget anything!  From taking care of the babies, to working, taking care of the house, and taking care of my husband, i am a busy woman. 

Our little boys are the cutest ever. 
They will be 5 months tomorrow and i cannot believe how fast time is passing by
It feels like just yesterday they were in my belly
It has been a whole year since we found out we were going to be
a mommy and a daddy!  These little babes were smaller than a pea in my belly
and now, a year later, they weigh a whopping 15 pounds! Yes they are big boys.
But healthy big boys! 
They have started eating real food and love it!  That milk stuff just wasn't doing it
for them anymore.  They wanted the good stuff. 
So we gave it to them and they have been doing great ever since!
They love love love applesauce, pears, and sweet potatoes.  Jace is the picky eater 
and hates peas and squash so far.  I don't blame him because i hate them too!  
Brody will basically eat anything!
 We like to make the funniest poopy faces!
We love to go swimming since it is so hot outside!
The boys love to play in the water and float on their floaties.  Bath time and swim time is a favorite around here, but only when we aren't fussy and tired. 
Brody and Jace spent their first night apart form each other last night!  Yes i was so sad about it.
I think they were more sad about it though.  It took them a little bit longer to fall asleep.
They both shared a crib from the beginning with a crib divider separating them so
that they wouldn't wake each other up or suffocate the other one.  But this past week, they have been kicking the divider all over the place and on top of each other so it has made me a 
little panickya.  I didn't feel safe about having the divider in the crib anymore so i took it out to see how they would do.  That totally did not work!  They were up all night all over each other and hitting each other in the face.  I had them both on opposite sides of the bed and then somehow they would end up in the middle all twisted around on each other.  So i went to Plan C and brought the pack & play up into the nursery and it worked! They actually slept the best they have ever slept!  They have been usually going down at about 10-10:30 at night and then waking up at 7 in the morning.  Last night they went to sleep at 10 and didn't wake up at all until 9:30 this morning!  They totally would have slept longer too if i didn't go wake them up!  I was pretty happy about it.
The boys love to always be sitting up now.  They dont like to be laying down much anymore in their boppies or in their pack & play. They love to just be up and doing what we are doing.  
They love things that are bright and moving.  They can't keep their eyes off my cell phone, laptop, or the t.v. when they are on!  It is so funny to watch.  They love their toys and love love to put everything in their mouths right now.  They are constitantly chewing on their fingers and hands all day!
We think that they also might be teething a little too right now.  Not for sure though because some days they will be fussy and chewing hard on their binkis and other days they aren't!  They are drooling all over everything right now though!  So we will see!  
They are fitting into 6 - 12 month clothes right now!  I hate that all the different brands of clothes are different sizes when it comes to the age.  I have the boys in some clothes that are 12 months, some that are 9 months, and some that are 6 months.  But then when i go to put them in some clothes that are 12 months, they are swimming in them!  Stupid.  It made me sad to start putting away all their 0 - 3 month clothes the other day.  They are growing up too fast.  I know it may not seem that fast, but to me they are!
Brody rolled over back when he was 2 months old and hadn't done it since, but today he rolled over twice!  Jace has yet to roll over.  We are practicing!

Both boys love to giggle and talk a ton!  it is the cutest thing.
I love this stage that they are going through.
They are so smily and giggly all the time!  Well at least
most of the time.  When their tummies are hungry or their diapers are full, we are all
screams over here.  Can you blame them!
I wish i could scream and have someone bring me food!  Wouldn't you?!
These baby boys have been really attached to their mommy and daddy lately.
I can barley leave them for 5 seconds before they start crying and wanting me to hold them or
sit by them.  It is even hard to leave them with other people or let anyone else
hold them right now because all they want is either mom or dad.  I mean
in a way i love this because they know who their mommy and daddy are, but
i cannot get anything done or really leave them a whole lot right now.
We miss daddy when he is away at dental school all day from 8 to 5.  Yes dental school!
Trevor started dental school Friday and he has been loving every minute of it all.
We have met so many awesome people and cannot wait to spend the next 4
years with them all.  He has some great friends that i know will turn out
to be some of his best friends! Trevor loves wearing scrubs and his new badge every day!  Way better then going to school at sucky ASU that's for sure.  He is living his dream!  
We are so proud of him and everything he has accomplished to get to this point!
It feels like just yesterday that we were talking about dental school
and wanting to be at that point in our lives so bad.  Now it is here and
we can't wait to see where all this schooling takes us! We love you Dr. Nichols!
We just recently took a trip to Newport Beach and are missing every
second of it right now!  Mainly the insanely awesome weather the most!
Seriously it was beautiful and not like an oven like it is here! It was seriously amazing.
We loved our runs on the beach, endless sand in between our toes, fun bikes rides on the boardwalk and streets, eating tacos & milkshakes, spending time with family, hanging at the beach house,
surfing & surfing the waves, getting our tan on, and taking the boys to the beach
for the first time!  These boys didn't like the beach so much.  It was kind of cold, windy, and not what they really wanted to be doing.  They liked sitting in the sand or going down to see the waves, but that only lasted a couple of minutes.  Hopefully they enjoy it more next year when we go.  We 
go every year so i really hope they start to like it! They will be almost a year in a half when we go next so i think they will like it a lot better and enjoy it more.
We found a house closer to Trevor's dental school and will be moving in about a month!  We cannot
wait to get out of our little condo and into something bigger and closer to school.  We are running out of room with everything that comes along with having twins!  We are really excited, but i am a little sad
at the same time.  We live so close to our best friends and family and will miss that!  This is also the
first place we bought together as a married couple.  So many memories have been made in our cute little condo, but we cannot wait to make some more memories in our new home.

We love our little family and love that these boys are growing so healthy and strong.
We are so thankful everyday for our blessed we are.
