Growing Boys

Ok....so I am a little late to posting this, but still want to since the blog is documenting the boys life. We took them all in for their annual wellness visits in June.

Here are their stats:

weight - 47lbs (80%)
height - 47inches (>95%)

weight - 36lbs (88%)
height - 39 1/2 inches (90%)

weight - 33lbs (50%)
height - 38 inches (50%)

There is no lack of growth in this house. I am a little scared of when they are in high school, I might have to get a job to feed them. The other morning for breakfast, they each had 3 waffles, 4 pieces of turkey sausage and a couple of glasses of OJ.

What will that equate to when they are 14 & 16?

I am scared, I tell you!

Best Buddies

A few weeks ago, Gavin had is first sleep over (or sleep away). He spent the night at his life long friends house, Nate. Gavin and Nate have known each other since the first few months of their birth. Their birthdays are only 4 days apart and throughout their first 5 years, they have shared many memories together. It was fun for me to go down memory lane with these boys. I hope you enjoy watching them grow as much as I did.
I can not believe they will start Kindergarten in a month! :) :(

Wondering what these two babies are suppose to do?

Astronaut & Race Car driver---we like to drive anything we can get our hands on!

We love dinosaurs!

We love Jesus!

We love Lily Claire & silly faces.

Little Miss Molly

This is what you get to do when you have girls stay at your house. Molly was a willing model and I felt right at home fixing someone's hair.

Isn't she so pretty? Love you Molly! :)

Hiking in the Heat

My 3 nieces came to stay with us a few weeks ago. We had a great time and we all enjoyed having some girls in the house besides me. :) These pictures were taken at the nature preserve off Flintridge & Gosling. You can hike all through the woods on trails. I highly recommend going. It is free and lots of fun. I would wait until it gets a little cooler, though. :)

They paired off 2 by 2, which was really helpful for me.

Molly found a worm.

Grayson was really checking out the worm.

Maidson pretended to eat it.

Give me a Z!

My dear friend, Ashley, allowed me to take pictures of her sweet new baby boy, Zane. He is not quite 4 weeks old. Can't you just eat him up? Well, I can and if you were wondering if it gave me baby fever, the answer is yes. Not so much for Billy, though! :)
Anyway---this was my first attempt at taking someones pictures other than my family. Honestly, I was a little nervous, but I figured I would at least get one good shot out of 300+ pictures. Here are a few of my favorites. They were all shot in my living room in natural light.
