I've been stressed out to the max, and just about lost my cool Monday at my sister's house. Evelyn has been doing so well with potty training, breastfeeding has gone so well so far, but yesterday was a cluster of not good moments. I had just gotten to my sister's place, tired from working all weekend but looking forward to some time out of the house. Right away Sawyer started fussing, I knew he was hungry and ready to eat. I fed him and right away Logan started in. He wasn't so easy to fix though, he was fussing and upset and refusing the boob. This has been happening with this teething business. I knew he was hungry, he was obviously acting hungry, yet he refused to eat. My pots were boiling, I finally got him to eat and he calmed down. That's when Evelyn - who wasn't wearing any pants or panties because she'll pee in them - pooped, it was wedged between her cheeks and streaked all over the back of her dress, the only dress I had with me (What was I thinking?!?!). I'm pretty certain steam was coming out of my ears. Some days I just can't catch a break. Luckily my sister was there to lend a hand and keep me from completely losing my sanity.

Had the boys' 4 month appointment last week, it was a week after they turned 4 months because I was being chicken about their shots. The appointment went fine though. I mentioned the flatness to the their heads, she wasn't concerned and said it would begin to round out now. We talked about breastfeeding and how that's going and about their development. They don't seem to be lagging far behind, the only thing they are missing is the rolling over business. Evelyn was also a late roller so I'm not concerned. These guys are just content to lay on their backs. They HATE tummy time and panic everytime I even try. Logan is weighing in at 14.6lbs and 23.25in long with a 16in head. He ranks in the 90th percentile now. Sawyer weighs in at 12.13lbs and 23in long with a 16in head. He ranks in the 56th percentile. They are growing well! Its interesting to me that they are the same lenth, same head size, yet there is 2lbs difference in them. They got 3 more shots and 1 oral vaccine... I think the shots are harder on me than it is on them, and it's always twice as bad because I have to go through it twice!

Evelyn's potty training comes and goes. She's so weird. If I put anything on her: pants, panties, a pull-up, she always pees in it. If she goes bottomless with just a skirt or dress on than she'll use the potty all day long. This is fine for when we are at home or at family's houses, but when we go places we can't exactly have her bottomless. Plus, we have setbacks. I think the boys being in diapers has an effect on her because she always wants to poop in a diaper, we are having a really hard time getting her to poop on her potty. Sometimes when she's running around bottomless she'll poop and that is just a big mess - usually on her and her clothes. It's so frustrating and annoying, but we'll get there.
I went a couple weeks ago and got my tattoo done for the twins. My artist was in town so I jumped on the opportunity to have him do it. I knew that I wanted it to match the one I already had for Evelyn, he did a great job! I had requested the dragonflies not be "identical" as the boys are two individuals, now that it's healing you can see that one is more green, one is more blue.

So, although updates come few and far between these days, its because we are so so busy. Life has gotten a little crazy. Bear with me.
Here are some of my favorite photos from recently - Enjoy all the cuteness!
