Funny Pictures

We're all doing great! The twins are growing so fast, I can't believe it! Audrey is just getting over a little cold, but she and Auston are doing great! Auston is so active, he's constantly moving around and always holding his head up, (unless he's really sleepy)! Audrey is also pretty active, but she's also really good about just relaxing and watching everything going on around her. They are both so fun, and constantly entertain us! Here's a little info on the pictures. The first picture is of Steve and the twins on our first walk that we took them on, just down the street from us to the BYU duck pond. The next two are of the funny things the twins do to entertain us, Audrey making a funny face, and Auston wearing one of those footless gowns and he had slid down on his bouncer, which caused the gown to go over his head! The last two pictures are of the twins together, and the one of them in teal and cream are so typical of their personalities! Auston's always doing something, holding his hand in the air, kicking his shoes off, etc., while Audrey is so dainty and girlie, and she's almost always holding her hands together like that! Hope everyone enjoys them!

Our Updates

Our New Year's Resolution: This year we felt that we need to keep in better touch with our family and friends, so we set up this blog to try and do just that! Here's a little info to catch everyone up on our family:
Starting tomorrow, Steve will begin his last semester at BYU! He'll be gradutating in April, and then it's off to Law School somewhere, but we probably won't find out where until about March or so. We've applied to several schools, and so far we know he's accepted to the University of Illinois with a scholarship and to Lewis and Clark in Oregon with a scholarship. We have yet to hear from the rest, so we'll be letting you know, although we're leaning towards U of I because of its high ranking, and maybe even for a bigger reason, the close proximity to Chicago (Go Cubs and Bears!). Along with school, Steve's currently working as a quality assurance intern at Nextpage, a computer company, and doing an excellent job as a new dad! Which brings us to our newest and most exciting news! Our twins have arrived!!! Auston Mark and Audrey Grace were born on December 8, 2007! Auston was born first at 2:13 pm, weighing in at 5 lbs, 11 oz, and measuring in at 17.5 in. Audrey was born after him, at 2:36, weighing in at 5 lbs, 14 oz, and also measuring 17.5 in. They are so fun and so adorable, but they're lots of work! They're really good babies, though, since they sleep really well :) It's so fun to see they're little personalities come out and seeing how different they are! Auston is a little noise maker, just like his dad! :) He's always making some sort of noise, whether its grunting, groaning, squeaking, or crying! Even while he's asleep, he'll be grunting away, which sometimes makes sleeping for us kind of hard. We figure he just loves to hear the sound of his voice. :) Audrey is just the opposite. She's quiet and happy, and can be completely content to just sit in her bouncer or be held and just look around, taking it all in. She's a great sleeper, and when she does cry, it's the most adorable girly cry! Both of them are so fun, and the faces they do make Steve and I laugh so hard! We're so thankful for these little ones, and can't imagine our life without them! As for me, it's been quite an adjustment, as I'm sure any mom can understand! But it's really been fun, getting to know these two! I'm so excited to be a mom! I can't believe life is changing so fast, and I can't wait to see what it brings us this year!
