In case any of you haven't heard Jeff talk about it yet, his belt company will be on the TV show Shark Tank, tonight, April 26. You can check out their website here: Shark Tank No Holes Belt. It's been a pretty exciting experience to say the least. Hopefully they can make a deal with one of the sharks - Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Greiner, Barbara Corcoran, or Robert Herjavec. In case you haven't seen their belts, they are pretty much the best thing since sliced bread.

the girls tasted cheetos for the first time at a party last weekend and discovered that they like them. sophie then informed me, "cheetahs are girls and cheetos are boys!" looks like their pre-k spanish is coming along great. i love this chica's 4 year old wisdom. i think she's ready to go to a spanish speaking country on her own now:

the gentlemen turned 6 months old today:
mr. soren at 6 months is serious- probably the hardest to make smile out of his siblings. he's very intense about things, predator-like when it comes to eating, and loves to hit and pinch with his sticky, sweaty hands. he seems to be always studying and analyzing everything. lately he has been doing the vulcan mind meld/ renesmee style communication with anyone whose face comes near his. the usual victim is eli. he is my only child that i remember liking to roll up on his tummy. he enjoys rolling to smash up against his brother.
mr. eli at 6 months is a chill guy. he has a muffly voice. he figured out from a very young age how to fake cough/sneeze/cry for attention. if his brother has a real cough, he is often heard doing a very poorly acted fake one afterwards. "a-HEM!" he's very wiggly and wobbly. he loves going down slides, and as soon as he is done nursing, he slides off the pillow. he greets me with a big smile and waves both arms up and down when i free him from nap time. he smiles with his eyes, and has the sweetest smile reserved just for his brother...
..until brother grabs his face for a vulcan mind meld and pokes his eye.
the 2 of them together seem to make a great team. i catch them frequently holding hands (awwwwww) and staring at each other, smiling and cooing very quietly. let's all cross our fingers that this means they will fight less than their twin big sisters.

i sometimes forget she's 2. she just fits in so well with the 4 year old crowd. as you can see she is quite influenced by them and their shenanigans:
big sisters went on a date with grandma, grandpa and kellie to byu gymnastics and had a sleepover. maya and i went on our own special date, and left the boys with jeff. i think it had been since last summer that i was able to do something like that with her. we hit up in n out:
...got a windmill flower at the dollar store and got frozen yogurt:
...went to the farm the next morning:
she has tested out the flower many times since:
she's a great helper in the kitchen. especially when it comes to cutting off ends of green beans. she cuts her little pile to a fine pulp:
she's a great help with the babies too. we consider it a success if she doesn't drop something on their faces:
a recent interest in soccer has developed, much to the delight of her dad. i fear that "kitchen soccer" might have similar results as "bathroom towel rack gymnastics" did.

5 months up until they start getting into trouble is my favorite stage. they are just so cute, sweet and innocent.
together. they spend most of their time holding hands, kicking their feet, or having intense staring contests. right now soren is quite the talker, and eli is quite the listener.
eli with mom, who rarely makes it in these photos. better document:
watching the super bowl with dad:
well, that's what they told me to write, but they were actually watching the bachelor.

our kitchen dining table is never used for dining. somehow it's been taken over as the girls' art table. we have to eat our dinners around the counter. a whiteboard with dry erase markers has been popular the last couple of days, and has the plus of dramatically cutting our paper expenditure:

i love these photos they took at preschool:
and at home:
first valentines for the babies:
for family night, we worked with the girls to do their valentines cards and had about 70 to do. they taped a lot of the cards that they got to the fridge. some of them made us laugh because they made no sense at all.
