Double your enjoyment

So many people kept asking me to send prego belly pictures. That is not really my thing. I had enough random strangers telling me how big I was that I didn't want the same from family and friends. But I decided to document the last few weeks of a twin pregnancy since I will not be having twins again. Here it is!
31 weeks

36 weeks

My sweet friend Karisa through me a shower a few weeks ago. She always makes everything look so great.

Thank you everyone! We are so blessed to have such great friends in Milwaukee!

This is what Jack does when he is bored!

It is amazing how quickly this kid can make a mess. I have decided that for the most part I will just laugh it off and grab the camera because my sweet Jack will only be little once.
I don't think he will make a very good paperboy! 
Jack's new thing is to get out all of his toys, put them in one big pile, and then have Bagley and  me sit  next to the toys and play with him.

I found him in the hallway with his basket of balls and his hoop dragged out of his room.
This is a new fun toy.

Uh Oh! Did I do that?

He decided to empty out the dresser drawers and then lay in the mess.

Summer Fun

We have had a fun packed summer! We decided that we better do some fun things since the twins will be here at the end of the summer and then none of us will be going anywhere for a while!

Jack and Camden just finished their screaming and laughing competition.

Love this boy!

Jack is more independent everyday. He loves to feed himself.

Jack's new favorite food...."burgers". Sandwiches and Hamburgers are both "burgers".

Beep! Beep! The dinosaur train is coming through!

Jack is digging for dinosaur fossils at Kids in Motion.

I think we have a mouse in our house.

Jack loves hanging out with Fred. Fred always finds something good for Jack to eat.

Jack never gets tired of the carousel.

All his animals. These toys keep him busy everyday. 

He is definitely our kid. Eating Mexican food and limes!

Jack has become more and more attaches to his binky in the last few weeks. He is no longer happy with just one binky. He always asks for two binkies.

First fat lip. He acts like a five year old when he is at the park. He got this while walking on top of a cement wall.

I tried to contain him one Sunday morning so I could get ready for church.

Hey peacock come back!!

This stuff tastes awful!

Jack is fascinated with the piano. Every Sunday after sacrament meeting he runs up to the guy playing the organ  and just stares at him while he plays. This floor piano at the children's museum just might be Jack's favorite part of the museum.

More carousel please.

We have discovered splash parks this summer. Jack runs through the water while a lot of the older kids stand around trying not to get sprayed. 

Papa will be proud that we are starting Jack out so early.

We were babysitting Kenzie and her and Jack kept cuddling up on Bagley's lap.

I'm good. I got my milk, nummies, and ni-night in my comfortable box.

I think we wiped him out this summer because this kid never does this!

Butterfly, Dinosaur, and Frog Hunter

My friend Nina and I took the kids to the Milwaukee Public Museum one day. the boys had a lot of fun running around. We took them into the butterfly room which consists of trees, rocks, water, an butterflies flying around the room. Jack liked to see the butterflies from a distance but very nervous when they would land on him.

Jack did not like when the butterflies would land on him. He is basically frozen in this picture and didn't move until I removed the butterfly.

Two smart boys!
The public zoo had a dinosaur exhibit going on this summer so we took Jack to it since he loves his "roars". We had a great time. It reminded me of the movie Jurassic Park. The dinosaurs were very large and moved around. Jack couldn't get enough!
Do you want some popcorn Mr. Dinosaur?

Jack, Dada, and Tyrannosaurus-Rex

One of the dinosaurs spit water out of his mouth. While all the other kids were crying from being sprayed, Jack kept saying, "more, more, more". We spent the most time with this dinosaur.


Milwaukee has been so dry this summer but one day a few weeks ago it rained quite a bit. There is a pond near the cancer center and MCW that apparently has a lot of frogs living in it. We went with our friends to catch some frogs and let the boys play with them. Jack and Eric both enjoyed the frogs from a distance but got very nervous anytime the frogs got close to them.
I don't know about this!

I was able to catch this frog with my bare hands while being 8 months pregnant!

They both liked the frogs much better when they were inside the net.

It is so sad to see the panic on his little face. He did not like the frog on his lap!
