Sunday was the boys first time in Nursery by themselves at church! Now that they're 18 months old they get to go to Nursery for the first two hours of church and play with all the other kids! They were such good boys and had so much fun! I prepped myself all week because I knew that they would do so well...Brayden was a little bit sad to see me go but Walker was fine--they both played just fine without me around! Can't believe they're this big already!

18 months ago...

18 months ago yesterday I was busy growing my two little angels...little did I know my water would break that night and I would have my two sweet boys 5 weeks ahead of schedule!18 months ago today Heavenly Father sent these sweet boys into Joseph and I's lives and everyday since then has been a wonderful adventure!
18 months ago, Joseph and I became parents and changed from a couple to a family
6 months ago we celebrated these sweet little guys 1st birthday--and the fact that Joseph and I had survived as parents for a year!
Today I woke up to the sound of my babies playing and giggling at usual one of them was covered in poop--such smart boys getting their dirty diapers off--they played in the bath for an hour, we had breakfast, we played some games, we danced and sang at the top of our lungs, I chased them upstairs and they are now slumbering sweetly...
It is days like today when I know how blessed I am to be a mother and to have such wonderful children...
It's somewhat bizarre going from 2 to 4 in a matter of nine months...there were day when I was pregnant that I thought how in the world will I care for and love two children at once--I remember worrying that I might love one more than the other or that I wouldn't have time to play with both of them each day--
I can truly say that I LOVE being a mother--I treasure each moment I have with my little guys...even the poop filled ones!
I can't believe how quickly the time has gone by and how big Walker and Brayden are already--I hope that I always remember these moments and make time for more moments throughout their lives!
And there is no way I could talk about the last 18 months without saying how wonderful Joseph has been as a husband and father--he is such a natural with the boys and they absolutely adore him! They talk about him all day while he is gone and giggle and sit with him when he gets home--
I love you Joseph--thanks for being the best!
