A little update on what is new with them:
Mallory loves her beads (necklace). Every morning she gets up she goes right to her basket that has all her necklaces and bracelets in it and puts them all on.
She is saying a few words, up, momma, dada, ball, nana (banana). Loves to dance especially to Five Silly Monkeys Jumping on the Bed. She will say woof woof for dog and bawk for chicken.
The girl wanders all over the house. We will find her curled up in a ball in her closet on a shelf. She is very independent and the leader of the two. Really into her daddy right now.
Max lOVES books. Especially ones with Dogs in it. Will go through the entire book shelf till he finds his favorite book.
I think his favorite food right now is bananas. He says a few words as well: nana for banana, woof woof for dog, mumma, dad, I think he calls Mallory mom. There is a difference when he calls me vrs Mallory. If you ask him where Mallory is, he will say Mom and go find her. Says up, bawk bawk for chicken, Mawk for milk. Shakes his head for NO.
Max is still a momma's boy. He is very sensitive. A little cuddle bug with me.
They both love to sit on your lap and read books. Both love to give kisses and wrestle around on the floor with Daddy.

- He pulled himself up to the exersaucer a couple days ago, the fist time her attempted it he fell but he second time he made it all the way up! Amazing!
- He says: Mom Mom Mom Mom. I LOVE IT!
- GOT TWO TEETH!!! On the bottom.
- Rolls all over the place
- Chatter box
- Gets up at 5am these days....UGH...Need to work on that.
- Dances...a little. When you play music she will rock forward and backward while sitting and just grin from ear to ear!
I started work this past week at the hospital. Was a very rough week leaving the babes. I missed them so much. I am really enjoying getting back into the nursing field. Two days a week I work the plastic surgery unit! My first day on that unit is Thursday, very fired up about that! Another good thing about that unit, my schedule is 5:30am-5:30pm. I will be able to give the babes baths and put them to bed. Otherwise my schedule is 7am-7pm. Don't get to see them at all. Breaks my heart!

The babies are doing so many new things!!!! Max is army crawling across the floor! Hysterical! I love it! Mallory is just starting to roll over. She is a bit behind Max but she is catching up quickly. They sit up all by themselves and seem to really love it! They aren't sure how to get back downt on the floor without a bit THUD! Doesn't seem to phase Max though. The babies started swimming classes last Saturday....They had a ball! Smiling and giggling! So happy they like it! I really want them to like the water. Will post a picture of swim class this weekend! Need to get a good snapshot!
Feels good to be back...

Why do they call it a "Cup of Joe"? I looked it up.
Possible origin lies in the birth of America's taste for coffee, which developed in the 19th century after tea was no longer available from British merchants. The phrase may have come into the American English language via a misunderstanding of the French word chaud, which means "hot" and is pronounced similarly.
Another popular theory derives out of World War I where GI Joes drank Coffee to stay up late as minute men. Coffee and GI's were so associated that many generals began to order a Cup of Joe to help identify and work with their subordinates. The phrase was implemented out of respect of soldiers and their choice of drink as it was always made to be readily available and for those in particular who were needed at a minutes notice.
I like the second one!!! I used to Love GI Joe figurines when I was younger. I grew up with only a brother and he is older so I was quite the tom boy.
My mom surprised me yesterday morning with a new Mommy Mug. On the reverse side it says " Our lives were brought together by a greater plan and I am grateful you are a special mother bringing so much love and caring to all you do . Thank you for being a part of my life!"

It's so cute when I go into the babes room in the morning. I say good morning to Max and his head pops up like a little turtle and he just starts squirming. It's hilarious!!!! He has such a huge smile on his face!!! Mal is totally different, she just talks and talks and talks and once I flip her over it takes her about 5 minutes to open up her eyes then she flashes me a cute little smile!!!!
I went to JoAnns yesterday and picked up some really cute fabric. I am on to making some bibs! Got a pattern from http://nested.typepad.com/blog/crafts/index.html. Wish me luck!

I went to this baby boutique in town yesterday...HUGE sales but their sales are like normal priced items anywhere else you go. But they have some adorable stuff. Some of the little dresses there inspired me to sew. I REALLY want to get into more crafty time. I could do it after the babes go to bed (9pm) but man, I need my sleep. Still my first project are those taggie blankets...Damn it, tonight I am going to do one!!! My mom is coming over and I am going to hide in the basement and not come up till one is done. It may look like shit but I will finish it.

Am looking for a new hairstyle....I easily get bored with my hair. Maybe it's the color that is frustrating me. Right now it is a blah brown. I think I want something a bit more trendy-er! But then again that means I have to do it every day!
Tomorrow the babes and I are going to venture out to the mall. We have been cooped up inside with 10 inches of snow we got the other day. I need to get some exercise. I have 10 more pounds to lose to hit my prepregnancy weight...and what better than shopping it off!

The babes and I took our first road trip. We went to visit my Aunt down state. Babes did great! I thought for sure they would have problems sleeping but they did awesome. 10 hours each night. I LOVE IT!!! My little cousins, Sadie and Emma love them to pieces. Such great little helpers. We had a great time...can't wait to do it again!
My craft projects have gotten no where and it bums me out. It seems like everytime I try to start something, one of the babies wake up or need me. Can't complain to much, it feels good to be needed. My goal for this week is to atleast get one of the taggie blankets done. Hopefully when the sitter is here on Friday I can get to it.
New things the babes are doing: Mal is talking up a storm. She is hilarious! And they get excited when their Daddy gets home from work. It is so sweet! Their hands and feet just go crazy. Max is full of smiles. Grabbing on to objects and they both are totally into their hands.
Since Lent starts today...I am giving up pop. I never used to drink pop until I was pregnant and now I can't quit drinking it. It needs to stop as I don't drink hardly any water anymore. I need to drop 10 more pounds to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. It would be a lot easier if I worked out....something else I can add to the list. I am also going to try really hard to be an understanding wife. My husband has been working a lot and sometimes I struggle with it. Work is really busy the first couple months of the year and I need to be more understanding. It is just hard as I am with the babies all day and then he gets home from work and then he works some more from home. I only have about another month till it slows down for him. I can do it!!!
