Getting Adjusted!

We are definitely getting into more of a routine with both boys. Those first couple of weeks were pretty rough. Don't get me wrong though..it is still very busy and sometimes stressful! I have even gotten someone to help me three days a week with the boys and house work. I cannot stand for my house to be a wreck so we decided that getting someone to help was not a bad idea. She even helps me do the laundry!!! I hate asking people for help but that is one thing these boys have already taught me and that is that it is okay to not be able to do everything on my own. I am still getting adjusted to that concept though:-)
We had several visitors this past week. My grannies came last Tuesday and Ryan's parents came over the weekend. We had a good time catching up with all of them.
This is Nanny, my mom's mom. She loves to do "This Little Piggy" with the boys just like she used to do with us when we were little. This is Granny, my dad's mom. I am so excited that Reed and Braden get to meet their great grandparents! They spoil the boys just like they spoiled us growing up.
This is Ryan's mom, Granny Carol. She entertained the boys all weekend and even brought them their Easter baskets. The baskets even had their first camouflage hats for them to wear this summer. They can wear those when they go hunting with my dad!! Just kidding Ryan!
Ryan is not much of a hunter but I tell him that the boys are going to love their Uncle Craig more because he will buy them four-wheelers and take them hunting!
This is Papa T, Ryan's dad. Reed loves for someone to talk to him and Mr. Terry enjoyed doing that all weekend. Papa T was a good stroller pusher for when the boys got fussy and wanted to go for a ride! The boys both love their hands. They are drooling non-stop and like to put any thing they can in their mouths. You can kind of see the difference in their sizes below. We will find out next week what Braden weighs but he has a good few pounds on Reed. Braden better enjoy being able to beat up Reed right now but it won't be long before Reed will catch up to him!
Conversations between Braden and Reed
My mom loves to take the boys outside but when it's too cold she strolls them inside. Braden was getting tired Saturday so I decided to push him inside and this is the result one minute into the ride. And no, our boys aren't spoiled one bit!!!
This is a picture dedicated to Ryan. I figure they can wear their Kansas onesies since Kentucky is not even going to make it to the Big Dance this year.
I love this picture. They are going to have so much fun growing up together.

All the pictures are great, but that very last one where they are both in the bouncy seat is priceless. I still want to bring you all a meal... just let me know when you want me to bring it!

Keeley,

Accepting help is a great adjustment to make. We were made to live in community with the church. 1 Cor. 12:14 - Remember, the woman who fears the Lord in Proverbs 31 works hard, but is also a manager. She is noble and has servant girls, 31:15. The two can coexist!

Love you guys!
Eric

I am so obsessed with your boys and just may have to take a trip to N-ville to meet them in person... I am so--happy they are doing so well! I also hated asking for help--and quickly learned after having a baby-it is okay to ask and most people love to help out! Love the one of them in the bouncy seat--so freakin cute!

They are precious! I hope I get to see them soon! I am in Kansas City and just showed my aunt the KU pics. She loved them. THEY are adorable. I hope when I get home I can come over. Love you all and MISS you.
