Well, my babies are 3 months almost 3 1/2 months, and are doing great. They are sleeping so well, about 10 hours a night. They are only taking a few cat naps during the day, which is frustrating but i will take it if they sleep through the night. Halle and Miller are still getting along great and are best friends and always playing together (love them).

Honestly i am so happy with how everything in my life is going. I try to stay busy by going to my moms or my sisters, or just out so i am with another adult (just makes things easier) but if not, i can get through the day pretty well by myself. it can get crazy for sure, but i am learning to let a lot more things go. like when the kids make a huge puddle in the bathroom during bath time, i used to get so mad, now i just know it's going to happen when a 2 & 4 year old are in a bath tub playing. The other day they splashed so much water i opened my medicine cabinet thing and water spilled out, they got in trouble for that, but it was still funny. Playing in the mud outside, hey i did that as a kid and i don't remember  getting yelled at. making forts out of all the couch cushions, sure, as long as i can have one to sit on and feed a baby (which i am doing all day it seems, but its ok).

Harvey and Pepper are such little cuties and good babies. I am one lucky mama.

I am excited for Russ, he has his big Point to Point 80 mile mountain bike race next weekend. see here . He has been working all summer towards this race. He has been eating better, and has lost 15-20 pounds and with his new bike will be 30 lbs lighter then last year. It took him 12 hours last year and was such a huge accomplishment. He has been good about training as much as he can during the nights and on weekends, but he has still been gone quite a bit. It has been kind of hard on me, just getting used to these babies and the other kids. Being a mom is exhausting and you can't explain it to anyone, they just have to experience it for themselves to get it. Needless to say, i am excited for him to do this race and i know he will do awesome, and i am also excited for him to be done with racing season. :)

I have told myself that once Russ is done with racing, then i need to get serious about getting in shape and eating healthier, i figure if my babies are sleeping through the night i don't have an excuse any more. (i am getting tired of not having anything to wear and my sick nasty muffin top.)

OH and i am getting excited for fall weather, and fall fashion, so much better.

here are some random pics. enjoy

my boys, Harvey looks miserable, but he really wasn't crying until i took the pic. 

All 4 of my kids in our bed (in the morning of course) no one is allowed to sleep in here but Me and Russ

Best friends

Such darling pictures, Lacey! I'm so glad to hear that those babies are great sleepers already. And it's taken me over a year to actually begin getting into shape, so props to you for having the energy with 3-month-old twins to even want to start! You're a wonder woman! (and props to your hubby too! I'm way impressed with his bike racing skills!)

So much fun! I love all the pictures and I am glad that you are so awesome and that your older ones are best friends they are so much fun to be around. Thanks for letting us come over and add to the chaos of your life!

Lace, I just read this and I love it. You are sure doing a swell job figuring this all out. Motherhood seems so out of this world to me, but so natural at the same time and you embody just that.
Love you Lace!
