Three Years Old

The birthday boys! A & S 
As of June 23rd, Adam and Scott are officially 3! My teeny tiny 32+3 week babies, who weighed less (combined) than the average baby  are not longer 'babies'. Time has gone by so fast, and I am absolutely in love with these sweet little boys. I am so lucky to have two of the most easy-going well behaved kiddos around. I have actually taken them to work a couple times in the past few months if I need to get some paperwork done, and they sit quietly watching Frozen in the lunch room without causing any trouble at all.

In the past couple months, we have continued with skating lessons, which the boys seem to enjoy. They still haven't really 'gotten it', but they have plenty of time to learn in order to become pro hockey players! We took a trip down to Seattle, and spent a great day at the zoo. The boys loved checking out all of the animals, and it was a nice family vacation away for a couple nights. We did the Vancouver Sun Run, and the boys enjoyed their third year being pushed in the stroller for a 10k jaunt. We had practiced shouting 'Go Mommy! Faster Faster!!' before the big day, and they gave me a couple encouraging yells along the way.

We also passed another 'big boy' milestone! Moving into twin beds! The toddler beds are gone, and we moved the boys into our spare bedroom for a new Olaf themed room. They absolutely love their new beds and the room looks great. Jamie is extremely handy and vented the A/C in their room through the wall so we don't need to leave the window half open all summer too. The first couple weeks were rough, and Scott was waking up around 5-5:30 AM. Thankfully a few weeks later, they are now sleeping in until 7ish. I'm usually in there about once a night though, just to pick up a dropped stuffed animal, or to give a hug and kiss. They are still pretty great at going to sleep, and are normally in bed by 7:15, and asleep shortly after. They both still sleep with way too many 'friends', and they now line up all of their Superwings toys on the Ottoman next to their bed before going to sleep.
New room!
What else? I feel like we've been so busy lately! I've been working a lot and I miss them while I am away, but they usually visit at least one work day per week to say hi (and snag a treat or two from the office candy bowl). They are officially signed up for preschool in September, and we will see how it goes. They are very shy when it comes to doing things without me. We attempted swimming lessons where I wouldn't be in the water and it was an absolute disaster. We tried two classes and pulled them - Both of them would start sobbing 30 seconds after getting in the water. At the preschool info night the teacher assured us that 99% of the time kids cry as you're leaving, but are totally fine and having fun within 5 minutes of that. So fingers crossed.

As far as growth, both of the boys are between 27.5-28 lbs, and a touch over 37" tall. They are little stringbeans for sure, but eat like horses! They are both potty trained (easiest thing ever thankfully) although we still use pull ups at night. We will switch to underwear at night in the next couple of months, but Scott still wakes up wet most mornings and I hate laundry. So we're not in a huge rush.

The boys love 'roller coasters' AKA toddler rides at the fair, and dancing to any music. Scott loves Elsa and Adam loves Anna. They are the best of friends and have so much fun together. Scott has insisted his name is Opa for the last week (Adam is Nana, I'm Gramma and Jamie is Poppa), and he is very convincing - even telling a woman at the NICU reunion 'I'm Opa!!' when she asked what his name was. We went to our first movie in the theatre with Nana - Finding Dory. The boys were great and sat quietly the entire time, munching on popcorn.

Overall, I'm going to wrap this up because I have been working on it for over a week already and keep putting it off. I know I am missing 100 different traits and quirks and habits, but thankfully I have a lot of storage on my cell phone to help preserve the memories. They are the sweetest, cutest, most loving little boys in the world. I can't wait to see what the next year brings!!
