A Message From Tesa

Tesa has something she wants to say to you all....
Would you like to know what she is saying?
Well, if I must translate....
Hi everybody, I'm Tesa!  Hope you are all doing just great.  I know I am.  Life is pretty good for me.  These people feed me well.  They change my diapers.  They play with me.  My big brothers keep me entertained quite well.  In fact, my brother Ryne wants to do too much entertaining sometimes and I hear Mommy and Daddy telling him all the time to back up and give me some space.  Ha!  That Ryne sure does love me.  Kade loves me, too.  He just doesn't get in my face all the time to tell me.  He mostly just talks really sweet to me and gives me my paci if I ask for it.  Cool thing is, I'm not the only one getting all this good treatment.  My brother Tyce is enjoying this life, too!!  We really do have it made around here.  I highly recommend being a baby in the Lewallen household.  
Oh, and one more thing I wanted to say before I'm done.....I want to tell you guys to give my Mommy a break when it comes to this blog thing.  She says all the time, "I wish I had time to work on the blog.  I'm so far behind.  I want to get caught up so badly. I hate that our families are missing out on all the fun new pictures I'm taking of you guys."  But seriously, I don't know how she is going to find time to get caught up.  We keep her as busy as we can.  It will probably just require several late nights or several days of an even messier house.  Maybe a few fast food meals for the bigger people in our family.  But I'm sure she will eventually find the time to make it happen.  Hang in there people.  Don't give up on her.  She will eventually come through for ya!  At least that's been my experience with her, I may have to wait sometimes for Tyce to finish eating or getting a clean diaper but she always comes through for me and gives me just what I need.  
Okay, I guess that's about all I have to say for now.  So until next time, you guys take care!  Thanks for listening to me today.

3 months!

 Yes these babies are three months old already! That actually happened a week ago and I did make time to take the pictures then....but getting them here on the blog...well, obviously that didn't happen.  It was my goal to get completely caught up on my blogging by the time Tesa and Tyce turned three months old.  Looks like I am going to have to adjust that goal a bit and keep trying.  

I would love to give you three month stats on these precious babies but to be perfectly honest, I have NO IDEA how much they weigh or how long they are.  I can only tell you that they are growing!  And even better than that, they are sleeping ALL NIGHT LONG!!!  Kade and Ryne didn't do that for almost a year.  So yes, yes, yes, I feel super blessed to be getting sleep with three month old twins.  In fact, we are doing so well with the little tots that Kyle and I started back up our gym membership this week.  We honestly weren't sure that we would even be able to work that into the schedule by the beginning of next year.  So nice to get back to that.  I NEED IT SOME KIND OF BAD!!!  Most of the clothes in my closet I still cannot wear.  Oh how I wish it weren't so difficult for me to lose the baby weight.  I should have been ready for the struggle though because it was hard with both previous pregnancies to shed the extra pounds....why should this be any different???  Want to know the most frustrating part?  This time last year I had just finished running a half marathon...13.1 miles....and when I got on the treadmill the other day and tried to run, my body responded as if I had never ran a day in my life.  Seriously, I couldn't even make it a half mile.  
Okay, enough with the weight and workout complaints....I must just keep at it.  Besides these sweet babies are worth it!
I tried my hand at taking some three month pics of them.  Just let me say, I am NOT a professional and totally wish that I had more skills when it comes to the camera.  It also wouldn't hurt to have about four more hands.  Trying to pose two babies and keep them happy and take their picture. YIKES.  A bit more challenging that I thought it was going to be.  But here's what we got.  There's lots of pictures...mostly for the grandparents' enjoyment.  So, if you don't want to look at them all, no worries, I'll never know anyway.  The good news is, I am not going to comment on them...just make up your own captions if you want.  So enjoy...

Twin overload???  Probably!  But I didn't really have the time to analyze the pictures and narrow them down any more than this.  What can I say?  At least I got them on here, right C.G. and Granna?
Now just have to find the time to work on catching up from the summer.  IT WILL HAPPEN!!
