On Sunday we happened upon Bank’s monkey costume from Halloween in the basement so we of course had to try it on Anthony.
Yesterday we took the boys to York, Pennsylvania to attend Melissa and Will’s wedding. Melissa is my Aunt Pat’s daughters, daughter. Not sure what that makes Melissa and I in relationship to each other. The wedding was beautiful and Melissa was gorgeous. I loved her dress!
Grandma and Grandpa Seacat are in town and Grandma bought the boys each a little tux. They were so handsome and did such a great job during the ceremony and reception.
I got way too many cute pictures so I’ll put a little gallery below.
Overall the boys did a great job. It’s hard to enjoy the wedding though when you have one eye on each boy. Especially with twins running in opposite directions. I definitely went cross-eyed a few times. 😉
Today we spent a lot of time outside. It was beautiful out and our tomatoes are starting to get to the point where the “wildlife” are likely to come try a taste. So we decided to finish the over-engineered rabbit cage (pictures to come). Grandma and Grandpa Seacat are in town so we put them to work. When we were finished Steve setup the soaker hoses and of course that just meant the boys played in the mud. This is the first time they’ve played in mud and I couldn’t help but take some pictures of their enjoyment. Boys will be boys!
I made this up but think it’s hilarious given my new book debut…
When people ask if I have children, I respond “Yes, I have 10”. Twins are more impressive in binary.
Our evenings after dinner lately have been us dancing in the living room or chasing the boys around the house in circles. Here’s a little view of what it’s like at our house:
these videos happen to be of Anthony. I’ll have to get one of Nathan as well. I had to get one of Anthony screaming. I love when he screams out of excitement at the top of his lungs.
Yesterday the boys decided to climb up on the bar stools and watch Steve peel some potatoes for dinner. They have been very interested in watching Steve cook lately. Especially Anthony.
They’ll even go and grab chairs and bring them over so they can get a front row view of what daddy is doing. However, Nathan tends to lose focus and his attention pulls him towards something else after more than 30 seconds.
We decided to eliminate the pacifiers on June 6th. The boys did awesome at night. The first few nights they cried a bit in the beginning but slept the same amount of time. The last week or so it’s definitely been interesting during nap time. I think at one point Ann said “I HATE no pacis”. Needless to say we suffered through the transition and the boys have forgotten about their previous addiction.
Nathan has been in a little bit of a mood the last few days. He’ll cry whenever we’re out of his line of sight. Today Steve went upstairs and Nathan collapsed on the floor in tears. Then Anthony got down as well and crawled over on top of Nathan and gave him some pets on his back. It was really cute. I think he was trying to cheer him up!
