Wow where has the time went....
It is July already, crazy, although I am excited about the nicer weather, not so excited that September is coming fast. Which means back to work :(, Some days I feel ready, but most of the time I am enjoying being off with the kids.
To update you, the twins are 9 months now. Grayson is 20lbs and is crawling everywhere fast, and pulling himself up on everything. Peyton is 16lbs 12oz and is not doing much, ha. She sits up very well :), can clap her hands, and looks pretty. Sawyer is great, growing so fast (maturing) the things he comes up with is so funny, he makes me laugh everyday. He sings Justin Beiber and I like to move it, I really should put it on You Tube, lol.
This summer we are just doing little trips, camping, zoo, etc. I am really looking forward to taking Sawyer on his first camping trip!!! The twins will stay with my parents for that weekend. Canada Day was a great day! Sawyer and I went to Zwicks, pony rides, face painting, bouncy things, etc. Then we went to my parents for a family BBQ, bon fire, smores, and fireworks.
This weekend, the kids and I went with Aunt Michelle to Zwicks for the Waterfront festival, Sawyer went on his first rides, motorcycles rides, car rides, elephant, bouncy slides, the cobra, and played games. It was a lot of fun, and he really enjoyed himself!


Sleep is something we all need, something that most of us don't get enough of.... Some need more sleep than others.

I found this info at -

Infants sleep about 16 hours a day, while teenagers need about 9 hours on average. For most adults, 7 to 8 hours a night appears to be the best amount of sleep, although some people may need as few as 5 hours or as many as 10 hours of sleep each day. There is quite a bit of variation.

Sleep deprivation – even one or two nights – can vastly affect your need for sleep. Unlike many things in life, sleep time is not something that is routinely changed. You can’t get used to a lower amount of sleep just because it fits your schedule. If you try to, it will affect your judgment and reaction time, even if you are not consciously aware of it.

If you routinely fall asleep within 5 minutes of lying down, you probably have severe sleep deprivation or a sleep disorder.

That being said, I am one who needs more sleep... I definitely fall asleep within 5 mins and I get an average of 7 hours sleep a night, mind you that is broken sleep.

I think if you ask most young moms, this is the hardest thing of becoming a new mom, or new mom for a second or third time. It's not just about the 'moms' sleep, it's our babies too. How they fall asleep, not enough sleep, to much sleep, going to bed to late, waking to early, how many naps etc. Like motherhood there is no rule book, it is all what works for you and your family.

I LOVE sleep, unfortunately so does my husband, the difference is I can function on no (or less) sleep, he can't. You just do it, there are daily routines, and things that need to be done, you push through until that glorious hour when you yourself can lay down. Then to be woke up by crying babies, for a soother, for a pat on the back and a ssshhhhhhhhh. When I leave the room I find myself saying "please let me have another hour of sleep" or "please stay asleep" hardly ever happens. My days usually start between 4:30 and 5:00am.

Anyways this post is just to say Good Job moms!!! We carry on everyday, without much needed sleep, sometimes without food, showers (ha) and definitely without putting you and your needs first. We do this hoping it will effect our kids in some way, they will behave better, be smart, strong, happy, and well rounded kids.

I hope everyone has a great night sleep tonight :) (If this post doesn't make sense it is because I am tired, ha.)

Happy Mother's Day

To be a mom.... It is an indescribable feeling, you never know the love you will have for your children until you have them. I never knew there was holes in my heart until they were filled with 3 beautiful children, I am now complete.
I love the baby stage, so small and cuddly, you feel needed.... They way the change and grow so fast, they develop and learn daily. The twins are now 7 months, Grayson is 17 lbs 6oz and is rolling around and around, he is up on all fours rocking back and forth. He will be taking off any day. Peyton is 15 lbs 12 oz and is sitting really well, although does not do anything else, lol. Really hard not to compare your children, when they are the same age :) She is my little diva, will sit and watch Grayson move all around, but she knows if she needs to move, someone will move her, lol.
I have noticed lately how much I really enjoy the 2 yr old stage, mind you this comes with a lot of challenges :) Sawyer is so much fun, the things that he comes up with and out of his mouth... I have no idea where he gets it. The way they can express their likes and dislikes and that they love you! Yesterday Sawyer came into my bed with me and said "Mommy, I missed you, I love you" "Mommy you are my best friend!" Precious!!! Then there are times where he hits, throws things and repeats you at times he shouldn't lol. But everyday he makes me laugh and gives me joy.
Happy Mother's Day!

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh

6 Months!!

Wow 6 months already!!! In a way if feels A LOT longer, this week has felt like a month :(
So to catch up, where to start.... The babies are doing well, a lot better than 6 months ago or even 3 months ago. In the past 6 months they have been in the hospital on IV, on different formulas, different medications, puffers etc. They are gaining weight, Grayson is gaining like crazy!! He is our fattest baby yet! LOL which is great because he was so small at the beginning. In less than a month he gained 2 pounds! Sleep - they are both sleeping through the night, Thank God, and knock on wood :)
Sawyer is also doing great, growing up so fast it is nuts. He is fully trained now, except at night. I still have mixed feelings about this. With a diaper I don't have to worry about where a bathroom is or when outside I did not have to RUN inside. BUT he can't be in a diaper forever I am aware of that. His sleeping is going better, he now wakes around 6, sometimes if we are luck at 6:30 which is so nice.... I feel like that is sleeping in, (except I am up with the babies :( )
I go back to work in less than 6 months :( I also have mixed feelings about that, I wish I could go part time. I don't think I would like to be a stay at home mom, but I also don't know about working full time and not seeing them as much :(
We recently had our Easter Pics done at About Image, they had little chicks and bunnies there, it was great! I will attach a few photos, so cute!

Baby update

Well it has been a while... I feel like I have nothing to write about. So just for an update...
Yesterday the babies had their 4 month needles, they are now 5 months though.
So at 5 months they are doing GREAT! Grayson is 24 1/2 inches and 14 lbs 3 oz he has put a lot of "chunk" on in the last 2 months, he is really looking healthy now. Peyton is 24 inches and 14 lbs, she is also doing really well. They don't cry all day anymore, and are smiling and laughing a lot. They have both rolled over a couple times but are not that interested. Peyton tried Rice Cereal yesterday for the first time, seemed to like it. Today we will try Grayson.
Sawyer is also doing great, he is now 2 1/2 yrs old, Crazy!!! He is the pickiest eater I have ever seen, yes people I am aware that he gets this from me, but honestly so much worse. He is so cute with the babies, always hugging and kissing them, making sure to say good morning and asking if they had a good sleep. But then in he next breath, he pokes them in the eye or hits them, UGH. :(
Not much else new with the Davidson's, dreaming of the summer, when we can go for walks and not bundle so much....
Here are a couple of recent pics.

Twin moms convos

I have another post coming soon..... hopefully. Just came across this video and could not post it. Jaret and I laughed a lot because this is now our life. This conversation happens every time we go out, well the one side anyways...
Hope you enjoy, btw this is just supposed to be funny, not offensive in any way.
I recently heard some quotes from Roseanne Barr, I was reminded how funny she was (is). Here are a few that I personally like,
"There's a lot more to being a woman than being a mother, but there's a hell of a lot more to being a mother than most people suspect. " Roseanne Barr
So true

Experts say you should never hit your children in anger. When is a good time? When you're feeling festive? Roseanne Barr

Excuse the mess but we live here.
Roseanne Barr

and my personal favorite,
"I feel that if the kids are still alive when my husband gets home from work, then hey, I've done my job." Roseanne Barr

Thought I would just share for a laugh.

As I was watching TV last night I caught an Oprah commercial and it showed Roseanne Barr on her show Monday. Crazy how things like that work, I had not heard/seen anything about Roseanne in years then I find the quotes and now on Oprah.... Thought you might want to know so you can PVR it!!
