i can't get myself to call them the "terrible" two's because my child is far from terrible, but with that said, this age is so far the most difficult. on saturday jayden threw one of his temper tantrums (body flailing on the ground, screaming at the top of his lungs, that sort of thing) outside the gym and i was scolded, along with jayden, by an older lady. i was feeling like a bad mom and called my mom (a mom of 10) for some advice and encouragement. i asked if any of her kids threw tantrums....she said no. at first i was thinking, "well, thanks mom," but then she explained that she never took her kids out of the house. she literally never left the house. as i was thinking about it, his tantrums only come outside of the house; when we're out and about, when he doesn't get to stay and play on the swings or when its time to leave the pool. well, nothing really is resolved seeing how there's no way i could stay in the house all day every day, but she did tell me that its just his age and he'll grow out of it. let's hope.

so here's a quick update:

owen turns 4 months old today! happy 21st!he is the sweetest baby and is growing so fast. SO fast. i mean, he's HUGE! i guess i am comparing him to jayden, who's a runt, but he is only four months old and is over half jayden's weight. he has just started laughing at jayden, which is pretty much the cutest thing i've ever seen.

jayden recently turned 2 years old!

for his birthday we skipped the big party because quinn and all our dental school friends are studying like crazy for boards. instead we decided to go to the zoo to meet pablo from the backyardigans. it was all very exciting. this picture doesn't show it, but jayden couldn't get enough of him and kept giving him kisses.

like i said, quinn is studying for boards so i don't see him much and cannot wait until it is over. for now the boys and i are living the life and trying to make the most of the time we have left together. no, i am not dying, but i am going back to school full-time and won't have the chance to spend all day with them like i do now.

my excuse for not blogging very much lately is that i detest using our laptop. it is in it's dying days and is as slow as could be. i find myself getting very irritated every time i use it. and let's be honest, i don't need anything else irritating me these days. :)
our friend amber kindly took a few (and by a few i mean 500) pictures of our little family on memorial day. thanks amber. here are a couple, and i will post more of the boys later. maybe on a day where i'm feeling very patient.
