5 years fast

I can't believe that in 5 years my little preemies have gone from these cute little tiny things:
To these sassy, spunky, fireball 5 year olds:

Brandon is such a little fireball! But at the same time he is quite the tender hearted little man! He still tries to climb in bed with us just about every night. And on the occasion that we let him he's a little body heater!
He's also the most determined little guy I've ever seen!
At Lifetime, in order to swim in the deep end without a parent they have to pass a 25 meter swim. They can swim which ever way they want as long as they don't have to grab on to the side during the swim. I was letting him jump off the side. No one seemed to check if he had the wrist band which identify those who have passed. But the other day they did catch him. They asked if he wanted to try the test. Me thinking that he hasn't had a day of swim lessons, there would be no way he would pass it. But why not let him try right?!
He sure showed me! He swam the test better than Caden had!
When that kid wants something, he does it!

This little girl is just that, a girl through and through!
She loves glittery lotion, shoes, lip gloss, and nail polish!
She thinks that she runs the place, and whatever she says goes.
Although she and Brandon butt heads quite a bit, she loves her brother and stands up for him no matter what. It's quite cute. I've heard people say that boy girl twins don't share the same bond that same sex twins do, but watching these two, a beg to differ!
She's a great little mother to Brooke, except for when Brooke interferes with her play time!
She's quite the little daddies girl. She's got that guy wrapped around her little finger.
During the day though she is my little shadow. She loves to feel like she's 13 not 5. A scary thought for mom!

I feel so blessed to have these little spirits in my life. They keep me on my toes, and make sure that my life is never boring!
Happy Birthday Kylee and Brandon! We love you!
