Kyle and Austin 6 months

Can't believe my babies are half a year old! They are the happiest babies most of the time and we just adore them. Austin is getting up on his knees and getting across the room by scooting and has his first tooth!

My favorite outtake-

I feel like we graduated from college

   Oh hi! Remember me? I used to blog here. Now I have three kids and am moving. I've been thinking about writing this post for awhile now but doesn't seem like there is ever time for this old hobby of mine. It seems like a lot of us are feeling this way. I've noticed a lot of bloggers having their second or third baby and slowing down on the blogging. Some people also say instagram is to blame. Whatever the reason, I MISS you guys!
   I feel like we graduated from college. I feel like a lot of us started blogging 5 or 6 years ago when we were engaged or newlyweds. Back when some of us worked in office jobs that allowed us the time to sit and read and type. We had the time to recap our wedding detail by detail or our weekend or vacation. Even after we had one baby and we had time to write about every milestone every adventure every question.
   I miss those days. I feel like we were in college and had all the time in the world to sit around chatting and staying up late sharing stories. I shared a lot about our miscarriage. Plenty of my friends and family don't even know we had one. We have all shared a lot. A lot of us have been through a lot together. We have prayed for each other. Some of us have met, are facebook friends. But we don't share like we used to.
   We've graduated. We've moved away. We are busy. We would rather instagram. But I miss you guys! I miss when we had that time to get to know each other. We still share the big things. But I haven't really shared any where that we are moving. When we bought our first house I told you all when we put an offer on it and when the offer was accepted. Now we are like a week from closing on our first house and moving to our dream house and I haven't shared any of the process with you guys.
   Unfortunately, there just isn't time any more. But I wanted to take a second while Chase was at swim lessons with my dad, Kyle was napping and I was rocking Austin to sleep to say I miss you all and the blogging. You are in my thoughts and some times at 2 or 3 in the morning when I am up nursing the babies I catch up on your lives on instagram. I'm glad we can at least stay in touch. Hopefully we will have time soon to blog again and visit and share like old times.

Dance party with Papa

Kyle and Austin 4 months

Had so much fun taking pictures of the boys this morning. Excited that I got a couple that they were both smiling. They are both very happy and easy babies. I got lucky! They both love to talk now. In size 2 diapers and still wearing 3 month clothes if I ever bother to get them dressed. They started laughing this month. If you kiss Austin on his neck right below his right ear he just cracks up. Kyle's tickle spot is more his belly.

Kyle started physical therapy for congenital torticollis after his 2 month appointment. His neck is getting a lot better. We are going to talk to the pediatrician about his head at the 4 month appointment.

I wanted to capture their blue eyes.
Kyle thinks I'm hilarious, obviously.
Austin is always spitting up but Kyle can fill a bowl with spit up too.

Newest addition

It is safe to say I have an Easy Canvas Prints obsession. So when I was asked to write a review of their product it was a no brainer. I already had 4 canvases from their website so I knew it was a great product. Deciding which picture to have made into a canvas was pretty easy too. Obviously things have been pretty crazy around here so I haven't been able to share with you all the amazing newborn pictures we had taken. For Christmas Hubby got me a newborn session with my dream photographer. My boys were her first newborn twins and she spent all day at our house taking every picture you could ever want of newborn twins. If you are looking for a photography in the Sacramento area I can't recommend Lindsay Rene more.

When Easy Canvas approached me about a product review I knew I would pick a print from our newborn session. My favorite picture of Kyle and Austin from the newborn session is one of them all swaddled up together. On our mantle is a sign that says, "And they lived happily ever after..." Before it is a canvas from our wedding day and after it was a picture of Chase. Now that we have Kyle and Austin I needed to add them to the mantle too!

Here is a close up of the canvas. It is so well made and turned out adorable.

Here is the mantle with 3 of our easy canvas prints.

Here are the other two canvases.

Let me know if you have any other questions about easy canvas. I have practice ordering from them, obviously! I love that you can even print your instagram pictures on canvases from their website. Doesn't get much easier than that! I always get standard wrap thickness and wall hanger. I love the look of the mirror image border option. They are so easy to hang and just the best quality. Sign up for their emails there are always great sales and free shipping!
