Trick or Treat

My sad NEMO

Shark bait WHO-Ha ha

We had a fun Halloween! We went for pizza and then took part in the city Trick-or-Treat, We visited Grandparents and hung out with the family! Brax was a little grumpy at times with our busy day he did not get a nap... but all in all we had fun and only a few tears were shed.

My Sweet Boy

Brax is a little hard to get a good picture of, he is always on the run busy playing or watching his favorite movies.

Tay is getting so big and so very handsome! We went to the doctor on Friday and he weighs 11lbs and 5oz. He is such a good baby and we all love him so much!

My favorite! His smile! I love it!

Primary Childrens

My Scared Boy


Yesterday we made a trip to Primary Childrens Hospital for a follow up appointment for Braxton's fractured nogin. I was not expecting the experience we had: The automatic overwhelming feeling that you get the second that you walk through the door, when you see all the tiny patients and their parents parading around with wheel chair and oxygen some even on a gurney bed. I could not help but get tears in my eyes and feel just a portion of what those parents are feeling for their helpless little one. We checked in and had the cat scan which by the way before Brax would go had to see Mac(the truck) go for a ride. Then we had our appoinment with the Neurosurgen, which everything was fine, he said Braxtons fracture is hilling nicely. We kind of had to tell him why we were there and he seemed to think it was not a big deal..probably compared to all the serious things that he sees all day. Anyway I am so gratefull that Brax and Tay are so healthy and that everything worked out good. I do know if I could be that other parent. Bless them and their little ones!

This about sums up what Brax thinks of his new baby brother. Brax loves and cares for Tayven but to be honest he is just more into his cool trucks and tractors. When he hears Tay cry he will ask "whata mater baby broder" Recently ... this past week he has asked to hold him, this lasts about a minute and then he his done. Thanks Brax for being such a good sport about welcoming a new member of our family..sometimes it is hard.

I feel like Brax is so fun to watch and is always entertaining us, but as soon as I get out the camera he freezes and this is what I get.

This is Tayven at Six Weeks!! It really makes me sick that he is already six weeks. He is such a patient, happy baby. We are so lucky with such good boys!!

I have really enjoyed dressing my boys the same. These are there twin outfits. Cute huh!

I want to do Wednesday posts about our boys so we can continue to watch them grow. (It worked out nice that the boys were born on the same day;) I guess I am off to a bad start seeing as it is Friday but here it is: This is Braxtons new hang out....He was playing his trucks in there and he would not get out! Also Braxton has called me Mandie all morning! Never a dull moment!

-Tay Five Weeks-

Look at those cheeks! I can not believe how chubby Tayven is getting; it is no wonder, he eats all the time!! I feel so blessed to have this time with my boys and I am enjoying every minute.

The start of some rolls! my favorite!

-My handsome man-
He is starting to coo and smile a little this past week, so fun!

~Update On BRAX~

Brax in his new, cool PJ's grandma got him after a long night in the emergency room. Brax was helping mom cook dinner and fell onto the tile! He cried for a little while but was excited to have his dino-nuggets for dinner, we ate and when it was time for bed he would not lay down. He cried which is not normal for our little guy; he usually goes to bed really well, so we took him over to the emergency room and had some x-rays done...sure enough he had a skull fracture on the right side. Braxton is a trooper, he is doing really well and things could have been a lot worse!! I do have to say that he was quite funny under sedation. He apparently saw a dinosaur in the trash and his IV turned into a Buzz light year laser. Well we are so happy he is doing well, He is such a happy boy and we are so blessed to have him as part of our family...(little brother might disagree now but someday..)

Brax has been so good with having a new baby brother! He will watch his favorite movies while mom gets ready. Thank goodness for Cars, Monsters INC., Nemo and Toy story!!

Grandmas greating after her 5k. Yeah GRANDMA!!

Watching the Train!

More train!! Brax loves TRAINS!! Thanks Dad for the great trip!


Tayven is already one month!! The time with him has gone by so fast! It is crazy but I feel like I have been able to watch him grow! He is a really good eater, which makes it a little hard to go far but we are sure enjoying one another and you can not forget big bother either. I love my boys and I absolutely LOVE being a mom!!!
