Twins Turn 8 Months.

I can't believe the twins are 8 months already. They have gone through a hellish couple of months getting their teeth and it has been really hard. Just when I felt like the fog was starting to lift around 6 months it all turned again and started to feel like I was drowning again. They aren't taking great naps still during the day and it makes me just want to cry some days because they are just so sad and so tired.
Aside from the terrible napping they are starting to hit a really fun age. Irie is really vocal and yelling and jabbering all the time. She is still the more finicky one, but she will also cuddle more. Indie is trying so hard to be mobile. She gets closer to the crawling position every day. She is way more easy going (and patient) than Irie, but she definitely doesn't like to cuddle haha. It is interesting to see the differences in their personalities.
They are so chubby and loving real food. They still don't love baby food,but they will kind of take it.
The other day I heard a bunch of screaming coming from the kitchen and I realized it was because I left the girls side by side in their highchairs and Irie kept stealing all of Indies snacks and she as getting so mad. So I turned them facing each other and they were so happy just eating and jabbering away at each other.

Back to School

Boston 6th grade. Yikes
Tayden 3rd Grade
Kai 1st Grade
Demry Preschool. She doesn't start for another couple weeks so I will get a picture of her soon.
4 days into school and Kai got strep throat and had to miss 2 days. Boo. I hope no one else gets sick.





Bergquist Family reunion

This was our last reunion of the summer. It was kind of horrible timing. It was the very last weekend before school started so that meant that we would be driving all day Sunday to get back and try and be ready for school on Monday. The twins were teething and sleeping SO terrible the entire trip. I was kind of exhausted and just OVER all the traveling. But.... All things considered I was still glad we went and got to see all these people we love so much.

Earl Family reunion 2016

We had the best time up at our Earl family reunion. It was in Albion ID which was really nice for us because it wasn't very far. We stayed at the coolest reunion retreat type place and it was so awesome because everyone could stay basically in the same house. For the first time in YEARS we had our entire immediate family there. We were able to take family pictures and it was really nice to have Ryan and Nena there. It seriously made my heart happy.  The kids ran free outside with a pool, bounce house, bikes and tons of things to do. We had yummy food and great entertainment. The tributes we did to Grandma were so awesome even though we botched ours just a little haha. I was bummed because had we done it perfect it would have been awesome! Oh well haha. We had the most epic dance party. We took lots of pictures and I left feeling more in love with my family if that's even possible.
Highlights:
Food
Dancing
Tributes
Visiting late at night
Races
