Week 4: Where has the time gone?

I realized the other day that it is already May. I wondered what happened to the month of April. Then I remembered: Change the boys, feed the boys, pump, do laundry. Change the boys, feed the boys, pump, dry the laundry. Change the boys, feed the boys, pump, wash laundry. You get the idea! Actually, it hasn't been that routine...we have had a lot of fun with these little guys! For example:I had the camera with me after nursing the boys one evening and I took pictures of them while they were awake. Can you tell who is who? Yep, that is William on the left and Jonathan on the right. I love the face that William is making in this picture! They are so funny sometimes! Here they are looking so sweet! They had a doctor's appointment on Friday. William weighs 7 pounds, 5 ounces, and Jonathan weighs 7 pounds 10 1/2 ounces. Jonathan gained a whole pound since his last appointment! They have outgrown their preemie clothes and diapers and are now wearing size newborn clothes and diapers! Oh, and by the way, my due date is this Wednesday (May 7). Aaron likes to carry both boys at the same time. The only problem is that when he wants to put one down, he has to have some assistance! BEWARE! This is what happens if you aren't quick enough getting a boy in the bathtub! Jonathan has a great aim! We took the boys for their first stroller ride yesterday. I think they are still a little small for our double jogger stroller! Another view of them in the stroller so you can get the full effect! We let Emma ride on the front and then we covered the whole thing with a blanket. Emma is sitting in the foot rests for the stroller seats. It was pretty easy to push all three, but I can't imagine jogging with all three on there! On Saturday I got some much needed (and I like to think much deserved) relaxation time. I planted some plants! My dad sent down several plants for me and I spent the morning planting them in front of the house. It was quite cloudy the whole time I was working, and as soon as I planted the last heuchera, it started to rain! Impeccable timing! On Saturday evening, Aaron and I went to Home Depot and he bought me the hanging baskets for Mother's Day. Oh, we got a new patio set, too. I will have to post a picture of it some other time. That was also part of my Mother's Day present! I planted Guacamole hosta, Plum Pudding heuchera, and Pirate's Patch tiarella. That probably doesn't mean anything to most of you, but I know there are some plant nerds who read my blog who might care! The viney stuff was already in the landscape (I forget what it is). Oh, and Emma helped me. Her favorite part was playing with all the earth worms I dug up!

That is all for this week! Have a good week.

Hayley--Garden Nerd here....but first, a comment on your boys: So. Adorable. I love the funny faces, the pic of Aaron holding both babies, and especially the Jonathan peeing on you pic. His legs crack me up!!! I am glad they are doing so well....fattening right up!! O.K.....back to gardening.....I love your plantings. Is the viney plant lamium of some sort?? I planted some hosta and heuchera last fall and I decided....all plants shouldbe named for food!!! I planted creme brulee, key lime pie, and mocha mint heuchera and apparently need to find me some guacamole hosta!! Hahahaha!! Thanks for your posts!!

You blog is soooo cute! I cried when I read about you having your boys, and all that accompanied that! Some real good memories for me, and so hard ones to! I wish I had a blog back then.... I can't believe how big your boys are, they have changed so much since I saw them just a few weeks ago...crazy before you know they will be off to college. First though they will make sure you wash laundry, feed, change, and pump a few more times ;)

Haley! I love that you've been so good about updating your blog. You have a captive audience out here in Utah. I love your new Quest!! So, I have said for a long time that I wouldn't be a minivan mom either, but I'm guessing I probably will when it comes down to it. I miss seeing you guys at family parties!! Well, I hope all is well for you and that you're able to find a few minutes a week to yourself. Love you!

Happy Due Date, Haley! I must say, you are looking great! I'm guessing most women aren't back to their pre-pregnancy weight before their due date even arrives. My cousin just found out that she's expecting twin boys in September! I'm beginning to wonder if I should avoid the drinking water here in Provo (my cousin lives in Provo too). :)

I found your blog through Brad's site. Beautiful Boys!

Boys are great little fire hoses!! LOL. I have been peed on more than I care to remember!!

The boys sure are tiny!! They are very handsome though.

I love all the plants. I need to landscape our house. It has NO plants at all. We did plant a garden this year though. I am excited about that.

Can't wait for your next post!
