The adventures of twinsies

I put most all pictures of Max in the last post because he does nearly everything that makes him truly happy with Chloe, so the rest of my pictures are mostly the babies, and a few other randomos, so as we continue, baby adventures.

The babies are so so so cute. I just really love the stage they're at right now. They're really beginning to communicate much better, and they're really just so cute I want to EAT them! Quinn is at the beginning stages of walking, he can stand up in the middle of the room by himself and will take anywhere from 1-7 steps depending on the object of his desire, he can turn directions and he walks to objects by himself and most just people, he's on his way and walking!!!!! Bryson began taking a step to walk as well this week! So proud of him, he gets so excited to walk he mostly just falls forward to you immediately though, but his balancing has finally arrived too, go Bryson!

not happy to share toys, even at 1 years old.
Played keep away with my babies while I watched my friend's baby // Quinny and dad
Cutest little matching boys. We get all our matching boy outfits from Jim and Jan, they are so generous, we're grateful for new clothes here and there and especially matching ones! QB
At nearly 12 1/2 months the babies have caught on to the baby sign language for more, all done, and almost please! It's so cute! Bryson is beginning to just clap his hands for all done now days, that stinker.
We love park days with our walking group!
Katie, the best baby helper in the world // Mummy dogs for dinner Halloween week.
Back at the pumpkin patch...

I think these two are laughing because Casey tooted and Max asked if he pooped in his diaper lol.
Quinn // favorite toy
We love the children's museum! Haven't gotten to go in awhile but the babies are at an age where they could legitimately be excited and play with stuff! Just have to figure out ways to not go alone...
Back when Granny was here! Did I mention she visited in October? Well she did, goodness gracious that woman is the most amazing helper and mother I could ever ask for. Takes such great care of me and my kids.
Bryson's 1st birthday carousel ride.
Sunday with Granny // getting ready for Halloween!
I love me a good sunset!
Relief Society Activity of Family Home Evening night where we talked about FHE ideas, played pudding dictionary and Mormon Family Feud.

BQ- love riding cars!
Casey makes me laugh so much. He wore his wolf costume to school to be in the running for a gift card, ha. Oh how I love that man. I got the boys dressed up and we met Casey at school and went trick or treating at the dental school. Max was SUPER excited and super cute at it.
Drowning in children.
Halloween morning started at like 5:45, ooy, those children, so we went to the grocery store at 7 am since we needed milk for us all, ya know, a normal parent thing
Dripping in babies // LADY BUG season was in full blast, thin lady bug epidemic, there were at least 10 on my ceiling at any given time during October, there were so many and they were so hard to keep out! They have since died down but I just want to remember how insanely awful they were.
We walked with dad to school one morning, Casey and Max rode bikes, Max is so fast! I can't believe how good he is on that strider bike. I was running with the babies in the stroller to keep up with them. Can you believe we're wearing shorts and just a long sleeve shirt in the morning at the end of October?! The weather has been amazing!
Stopped to play on a tennis court on our walk one day.

FALL! it's been so beyond beautiful here! The tree outside our house turned yellow and was so beautiful for such a long time. There's bright red and yellow trees on every street AND we get to play outside in all the beautiful leaves. Seriously, Fall 2015 wins.
BQ just kicking it an cute as always.
The babies have come To LOVE the little broken jeep in the backyard. Quinn always crawls right over to it when we go outside and Bryson usually follows // Our thankful tree!
Curious babies making trouble.
Getting these boys from naps is so cute, more often than not, they're talking to each other and playing with one another where their cribs meet, Bryson has thrown his stuffed animal into Quinny's bed, they're so smiley when I come in, I just love it. The saddest part is having to pick which I'm going to pick up first, I always feel bad for the second baby even if I do switch off.

Speaking of naps Daylight savings was a doozy for us. We tried keeping the children awake an hour and a half past their normal bedtime the night before, it did us no good. They all awoke at 5:30 that Sunday morning. It was a looooooong Sunday, Casey was gone for meetings a lot of the day but we survived. Max ended up falling asleep on the way to 1 o'clock church and slept the first 2 hours of church, it was absolutely great, ha. The next morning 2 of the 3 kids slept until 8 am due to crappy sleeping the previous day, Casey was a saint and woke up with the 5:30 am Quinny that day who still hadn't caught on. I think the 3rd day all 3 woke up around 6 or 6:30 and we got back into the groove of when was an appropriate time to wake up, ha. In the recent week or two we move Maxson's mattress to the floor in our room in hopes it will help everyone sleep more soundly for multiple reasons, it's been working really well.

That's a wrap!
