and a week old.
Sometimes I forget that they are almost a year old. My little boys are growing up so quickly! It seriously feels just like last week that I brought them home and I was sleeping on the floor of my father-in-laws living room. They got used to sleeping on the floor with me, so when it was time to move to the crib they hated it! Now they can only (usually) sleep in their crib. Sometimes they will pass out in the living room with their bottles still in their hands. It’s so funny. Jason has started standing on his own, but he stills uses a table or a box to pull himself up. Adam is just a happy camper walking along the coffee table, making two or three rounds before he gets bored. It’s amazing seeing these handsome little guys grow and learn. Even though they don’t like all the things they learn, “No, Stop, Let Go.” Jason has learned how to ignore me when I say those words. Adam likes to test his limits before I pick him up and move him, and boy does he hate that.
I never in a million years, before I got pregnant, thought about having twins. It never crossed my mind. Now I have no idea why you wouldn’t want twins. I honestly believe it would be harder to have one child. You would never get time for yourself. With Jason and Adam I can put them in the living room together (now, it only took 9 months to get to this point) and I’ll be able to clean the kitchen, make dinner or even get a quick shower. They entertain each other. With one child they need company.
I always worry that I don’t spend enough time with them individually. I try to hold them as often as possible. Play with them as often as possible. I always try to tickle them, just because their laughs are adorable! But I’m just worried I’m not doing enough. I hope I’m not the only parent who feels like this. I’m learning everyday and taking it day by day too. It is easy (most of the time) but it can get very stressful. I have my moments of crying in the bathroom late at night, or screaming into a pillow, lol, The usual! lol. But it truly is a blessing to have these boys in my life. I couldn’t imagine how my life would be without them.

Can’t stop laughing
Four-year-old Paige Bennethum really, really didn’t want her daddy to go to Iraq. So much that when Army Reservist Staff Sgt. Brett Bennethum lined up in formation at his deployment this July, she couldn’t let go. No one had the heart to pull her away.
Breaks my heart
