What is going on with us!

Me, I am just rocking out the mom thing and getting us packed and ready to come home to Texas! Life with twin two year olds and a new baby isn't always easy but I seem to keep it all together somehow day by day, sometimes minute by minute but I love my kiddos and couldn't ask for better kids! I have also decided that I am going to go through training at the end of this year to become a Bradley Method Teacher (teaches natural childbirth) and I couldn't be more excited. I have personally practice this and I truly believe in it and look forward to encouraging and motivating more women to also believing in themselves and their God giving natural ability to go through childbirth as natural as possible.
Reed is very enamored with his new son, and loves to spend as much time with him as possible. Reed is working really hard to help his boss close up things with the sell of his branch to Terminix. Reed has to go in to the office super early in the morning, but luckly he gets to come home earlier than usual. Also, Reed was rear ended by a guy, who does not have any insurance by the way, at a red light about two weeks ago and now that car has been totaled, but Reed was 100% okay. He is ready to come back to Texas and see his old friends and family!
Kaylee likes having a little brother around and she likes to kiss and hug him and cover him up with a blanket! She is also developing a very large vocabulary and talks to us 24/7! She has so much to say and although I only can understand 40% of what comes out of her mouth it is fun and interesting to listen to all she has to say! Kaylee has also decided that it was time to start using the potty and not use diaper anymore. She also has helped her sister come to the same conclusion and insisted that she take off her pants and diaper and use the potty! I mean Kaylee literally took off Grace's pants and diaper and told her to sit on the potty and go pee, and Grace has been using the potty ever since! She did my job for me! lol
Grace is enjoying her little brother and loves, more like demands, to hold her baby brother! Grace is also starting to learn and sing songs all on her own, her favorites are "Twinkle, Twinkle" and "Itsy Bitsy Spider", it is so cute to hear her sing! She has also started to potty train with encouragement from her big sister!
Gavin is growing big and strong and is starting to smile and talk to us some more! He is also noticing his mobile on his swing and the fans in the ceiling. He is still sleeping through the night for the most part. Reed would say that him and I are inseparable and that I hog him all the time, which is true. He is just a wonderful addition to our family! Seriously couldn't ask for a better son! And it doesn't hurt that he is so darn cute, right!?

Yay for updates! I can't believe how much Gavin's grown in such a short period of time! Too cute about Kaylee and potty training. Can she teach David?

Your whole family is adorable - Gavin is just the icing on the cake! Love the pictures, keep 'em coming!

That's too funny about Kaylee and potty-training her sister. Good for her! That's teamwork. :D

Where in Dallas are y'all moving to?
