We have had a busy spring so far...we visited Shannon in Batesville about a month ago and last weekend as well as this weekend Shannon and her family have come to visit here, it has been awesome spending time with my other family....they are as close as my own as anyone could ever get and I love them all. We went to Jim's mom's a few weeks ago and then again this weekend and it is so relaxing for me when we go there as I hand her the babies and say goodnight....This prooves to be the best sleep that I have had since their births. We picked up their new swings this weekend and it is nice to be able to swing them both at the same time because until now we only had the one that Mom and Tony had brought 2 months ago. On the way home today we went by the graveyards in Missouri where Jim's family is buried and took pics as well as decorated his brothers grave as today would have been his 32nd birthday.
We plan to make a few more trips this summer and as of yet nothing is set in stone.
Things are getting easier as the girls get bigger and I am excited for the milestones that are in the near future.
My summer courses start June 1st and I am excited to be using my brain again for something other than baby formulas and diaper fullness. Online this summer means that I have yet to figure out how to get out of this house everyday..I am not losing any of this weight...I think I will need to just leave every afternoon and make it a point to walk around the block or something...Jim lost his job at the liquor store when it shut down last month.
love to u all
UPDATE: There is something wrong with our van, we are not sure the guy at the tire shop said that it was a blown head gasket and the estimate that we got to fox it was 1300.00 RYK...we might as well just get another vehicle for that price or an entire new motor...I have no idea what we are going to do just yet,.,.,,Jim seems to think that it is not a head gasket as he has mechanic friends and they dont think that is what it is...well I guess we will see...this puts off any traveling that I had planned this coming month or so.

They are smiling big now and Samantha can already roll over from belly to back...lol..she does not like to be on her stomach!
Things are better (with the colic) now that we switched them to lacto-free formula, put gas drops in their formula and use Benefiber for Kids to help them use the bathroom. For weeks we were all pulling our hair out as they were some crying babies--EVERY NIGHT!!! We are actually sleeping now, sometimes more than 6 hours straight...I dont know how to act when I get that much sleep.
The girls had their first cold (sniffles) last week and of course I was worried sick, they are better now but Big Brother is sick with a fever and sore throat for the past 2 days....he is going to the dr. tomorrow! The girls took their first out of town trip to Kennett a month ago and then this past weekend I took the kids to Shannon's (in Batesville), we had a good trip and the best time.
Hope this finds all of u well, I am sorry that I am not in very good contact lately..but as u can imagine I am pretty busy day in and day out!! Love you all!! BETH

He hugs and kisses them all day long and would rather spend time with them than to do anything else...We are so proud of him :) Any worries that we had of him being jealous, etc. have been laid to rest...I wish everyone could see the way he looks at them...his heart is so full!!!
