Memorial Day Weekend

This weekend we went to Austin. I had bridals on Thursday and a wedding on Saturday. So we all went and stayed in a hotel. The babies also made their first trip to Hula Hut! The wedding was at this beautiful villa in the hills. It was so nice to get to take pictures somewhere new and not in Abilene.

All Work and No Sleep

There hasn't really been much to post about lately. Nothing too exciting has been happening. We have been feeding babies, playing with babies, working, and for some reason not sleeping much at night. Sawer has gone back to her newborn schedule it seems and is waking up way too often to get much sleep. She will sleep for 4 hours and then in 2-3 hour increments after that. Mason is still only waking up once a night though so they are on completely different schedules. This = no sleep for me.

The new sleep routine is killing me and we are starting our very busy time of the year for my photography business. I have weddings every weekend for a while and shoots during the week. Busy, busy, busy! Oh and I have to take pictures of the babies at least once a day :) I know I'm biased, but I think they are the cutest babies ever. Here are my favorite pictures of each of them from this week.

4 Months and First Mother's Day

The babies are 4 months old today! I feel like their first year is going by so fast. They are still itty bitty for their age and are still in 0-3 month clothes.
Sunday was my first Mother's Day. Sometimes I still can't believe that we have these babies. It just took so long to have them. I love being a mother though and it was all completely worth it. Sunday we went and ate at Johnny Carinos and the babies didn't cry the whole time. Eric got me a new MacBook Pro for by photo business for Mother's Day. My old one is over 5 years old and was working on dying. The new one is so fast and amazing! I love Mac's.

Last night we gave the babies cereal for the first time. They didn't do too bad at all. I don't think much of it got in their mouth though. I think most of it ended up on their face and tummy!

Mini Me's

Everyone is always telling us that the babies look just like us. Here are pictures of us when we were babies with a picture of the twins. It is kind of scary how close they are!

First Road Trip

The babies had their first road trip this past week. We went to Kingsville for a week to visit my parents. The church I grew up in threw a baby shower for us too. It was a fun week and fun to get to see everyone at home. I got to go shopping, get a pedicure and watch some fun movies. A trip that normally takes 7 hours took 12 hours though. We had to stop and eat quite a bit. It makes for a very long tiring day.

Oh look, my brother has hands!

The hostesses for the shower:

Dr Appt

We took Mason into the doctor because he had a blocked tear duct and he went ahead and gave the babies their 4 month shots. Mason weighed 11 pounds 14 ounces and Sawyer weighed 10 pounds 2 ounces. Mason is such a chunk! They are doing great though and they are growing. He said we can start them on cereal in a few weeks. I am excited to start trying that.
