David and Erik rolling over (on film!)


It was really hard getting the boys to roll over on film. David (the top video) I caught just at the last second, and Erik (the bottom video) took three days to perform for the camera!!! I don't know what that clicking noise is; it's on all the videos. So please ignore weird noise and the grainy quality (or lack there of), and enjoy these darling videos of the twins!

4 months old (a while ago)

Well, the boys turned 4 months old a while ago, and I did take their pictures. I just took my sweet time posting them. The babies are still growing strong. At their check up David weighed 14 pounds 8 ounces, and Erik weighed 14 pounds 5 ounces. (Both are in the 50th percentile in height and weight). I'm still nursing them (which I feel I deserve some major props for doing), and I'm getting ready to give them rice cereal next week. I'm still deciding which high chairs to buy if anyone has any suggestions.

Erik looking startled that I took his picture.
David and teddy looking into each other's eyes. This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

David Rolled Over!

David rolled over for the first time today! We were just having some quiet tummy time on the floor (Mommy had a headache), and he bobbled a little, and then -- flop! Onto his back. He looked pretty surprised. It made me feel much better. I sure love those boys.

Christmas Morning

Christmas morning with our babies was wonderful! I'm pretty sure they enjoyed their first Christmas as much as they possibly could have. Steve's Dad, brother, and sister all came over to enjoy the festivities. In my family, we always open one present at a time -- youngest to oldest. (We should have opened one present for the babies, one present for someone else, one present for the babies, one present for someone else, since half of the packages were for people who can't even unwrap gifts!) But to keep with tradition, I'll post a picture of our family in the order we actually opened the wonderful bounty.
Baby Erik went first, and he opened his present from Santa (with a little help from Aunt Jen).


Baby David went next, and he opened his gift from Santa too. They both got piggy banks in which to keep all the money people keep sending them.

Jake got a bunch of movies, but he made the best face when he opened our gift: The Hulk.

Jen looks so cute in her pjs! Erik just hopes she doesn't try any of her makeup tricks out on him!

I got Steve the rest of a series of books he's been reading. You can see the fire on our TV in the background. :)


This was the only picture of me that I could post. Sorry that my face isn't visible. Steve got me a beautiful mirror to hang in our front room, and he hung it too! He said the next time he gets me a gift like that, it will come with a card that says "installation not included." Thanks again, sweetheart. It looks wonderful!


I seriously didn't try to only post pictures of the gifts we got people. They were just the best pictures. Probably because we're awesome at picking out the perfect thing for each person, and so everyone looks the best when they open our gift. :) This picture is of Granddad and his new digital thermometer.


Erik fell asleep while we were opening presents. Bet that won't happen next year!

David just loved all the books he got, and of course, he loved the candy cane!

Here is Daddy with his babies. So sweet!

Steve got the twins the cutest Santa hats for Christmas. I'm sure they'll appreciate them when they're older.

This is our current desktop photo. They both look so surprised. "What is this thing doing on my head?!?!?!"


They tolerated them better later that night. Here is Baby David.


And here is Baby Erik. They look sleepy because it is time for bed and Mommy made them take one more picture. Silly Mommy.
