Two Babies and a Wedding

It was so nice to spend time with my sister and her new little ones for a week. Scott and Andersen came home from the hospital about 3 weeks ago and are almost 5lbs. each. They are so tiny. And both so different. Scott has a nice olive complection with dark hair and a very easy going attitude. While Andersen is fair with light hair, including a receeding hair line...poor boy, and tends to be a bit more up tight. He loves to sleep and if woken from his sweet slumber is a very cranky baby. While Scott wakes up every 3 hours on the dot. Both are skinny and sweet and I really enjoyed helping out with feedings, burping, and changing diapers. And as much as I loved helping...I was glad that it was just helping. I am getting too old for midnight feedings and such. I was so tired one day that I went to take a short power nap one day and ended up sleeping 6 hours. But then I was ready for the night feedings. We also did a photo shoot with these little ones in their nursery. I loved the way this room was painted. You did a great job, Amanda. And once the room is finished those little boys will not want to leave it. So cute. Each wall was painted a different color to match the crib bedding. A brick red, apple green, sky blue, sunshine yellow, and a deep chocolate brown. And 2 half walls that my sister painted with chalkboard paint. Oh I just loved it. I miss our toy room but know how I can paint the next one! Here are a couple of sneak peaks. Those boys were super cute. Anderson even pooped in my sister's lap.






And my brother, Lehi, got married the weekend I was there.
So happy to be home. I really missed my family. I always say that I need a vacation but sometimes just saying it is enough. When it actually comes around to leaving...I really do miss them. Thanks, Honey, for taking good care of everything while I was gone. Love you.
