Motherhood = going crazy one day at a time!

One great dad

It's only fitting that this father's day Bjorn is getting a release from his Bishopric calling. He is being released so that he can spend more time with his family, his number one responsibility. He's sad to be leaving the Bishop and Craig(the other counselor), but I don't think he is going to miss early morning meetings, or early morning youth temple trips. Not that he doesn't like these things, just that he doesn't do EARLY anything.

We couldn't be any luckier! We have the best daddy on the block. He is our number one playmate, best friend, and role model. Myles beams when daddy comes through the door, Yoda goes ballistic, and mommy is always relieved to see him at the end of the work day!

We knew that multiples were a possibility when doing IVF but never really thought too much about it. Now that we have multiples our lives have forever changed. It's not easy, but he has never complained, or shirked any responsibilities. He's always there to feed, hold, burp, change, or play with a child. He is truly our #1 dad.

Happy Father's Day Bjorn!

I was just trying to give Myles some equal time, but it turns out that no one is interested in him any longer, they just want to see the girls. Well here you go. It's hard to get pictures of them with their eyes open. They still sleep alot and I don't think about getting the camera when they are awake as I am really busy at that point!

Myles goes to Disneyland

(as usual, Bjorn has his eyes closed!)

Ryan and Leslie and their boys were in town for the week so we wanted to spend some time with them. Disneyland is a place that is "magical" for little kids. It's right in our backyard however, we have never been. Bjorn has lived here in So. Cal. for about 10 years and has yet to go to Disneyland. I thought it was high time that we all made the trek since there would be extra hands on deck to help out with the kids. Myles was really great! He had a short nap in the stroller and made it all the way to the end of the night for the fireworks show. He enjoyed many rides, and just generally being entertained by his 4 cuzzies. It was a great day, all in all, and everyone had fun. I'm glad that Myles got there this year. I don't know that we will be going anyplace like that next year!

Myles on the King Aurthur Carousel and Dumbo rides and a shot of the petting zoo. He even used his "soft touches" that we have been working on at home. Good thing too because there was a really grumpy goat who actually charged him and head butted Myles right in the belly. I guess he wasn't up for being bothered by any little kids!
