A Few Firsts (PIP heavy)! :)

It's so hard to keep up with all of their "firsts". I try to get a picture of all the big stuff, but there are little things, like their first smiles I've missed. They've yet to have a real smile...just those ones that are supposedly from gas. Maybe I'll be able to catch the first "real" smile!

Their first night home: What a crazy evening that was for me! The boys did great, but me? I was a huge mess. My family was here when we got home and his mom & aunt came shortly after. I was so overwhelmed. When my family left, I ended up breaking down and sobbing hysterically. I cried for 45 minutes and made myself sick. Kevin and my sister finally convinced me to lay down for a few hours. And of course, I felt guilty for that and felt like I missed their entire first night home. :( I tell ya, there's so much you feel guilty for when you're a mother!

This picture is before bedtime the first night. They loved the swaddles for only a short time! haha!




Kevin's mom stayed with us for the first three nights. She was amazing. I couldn't have asked for better. She did so much. She kept the apartment clean, kept bottles washed and if I needed something she got it for me. When we came home from the boys' first pediatrician's appointment she had cleaned the entire apartment, even our toilets! I could have cried.

This picture is from the morning she left. Her dad had came by, so the boys got to meet their Great-Grandfather! He was so proud of them. It made me so happy! The little girl is Kevin's sister's daughter, Makayla. She loved the boys, too! :)



This picture is from when they met Kevin's mamaw, their Great-Grandmother for the first time. :) The boys are extremely blessed with grandparents. They have four grandparents, two great-grandparents and even have TWO great-great grandmothers. You don't find that that often these days! I can't wait to get a picture of them with their great-great grandmothers!



These pictures are from their first baths...which, they hated! And still hate...

These are from their first attempts at tummy time. Landon did fairly better than Gavin. Gavin ended up falling asleep on his pillow! haha!
