You knew this was coming...

You can't take one picture of the babes in the laundry and not the other!! Hilarious!!! Had some mommy time yesterday afternoon. Max was sleeping and we hung out. The day before Max was pretty needy so I made sure I had some good time with Mal! Sweet baby!

LOVE freebies!

Was at Each day is a gift and saw her Giveaways post. I am all over that handbag!!! I need a new one, I haven't bought a new one in it seems like forever. I feel to guilty buying one as I would rather buy something for the twins! Can't wait to see if I win!!! 5 minutes for mom has the post. Keeping my fingers crossed!!!!

Mommy's little helper!

Had fun taking pictures of Max in the laundry basket...fresh out of the dryer, nice and warm!!!! Mallory was passed out on the floor, just like a little princess, trying to get out of the work.
Almost done making my first bib-it shouldn't have taken me this long but the babes haven't been on the same nap schedule and we went out and about a couple times this week. Much needed. I am so tired of winter...I can't wait for spring to get here. I was reading in the farmers almanac (not sure why I was reading it) but it said that we are going to have a COLD spring and a scortching summer!!! Bums me out as spring is one of my favorite seasons!

How sweet it is...

After taking a bath the other night, Mal crashed and Max was just hanging out. Sweet little ones! They just love bath time! I have enjoyed the time as well...they are so funny kicking their legs and splashing their faces!

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 Wish me luck!

Roly Poly

MAX ROLLED OVER!! On Friday night, my husband and I were both playing with Max on the floor, Mal was sleeping, and we had him on his tummy looking into a mirror and all of a sudden he pushed off with his left arm, swung his left leg over and rolled right over!!! We were both shocked along with Max!! We were so excited. Tried to have him do it again but I think he was tramatized from us screaming and clapping!!!

Yesterday the babes got their 4 mo shots. They did very well...was afraid they would wake up in the middle of the night but they were sawing logs! Both babes are stuffed up a bit, doc says it isn't a cold, they are just drooling so much and it drains to the back of their throat and they don't know to swallow all the time! Poor little tikes. Doc said that the new recommendation from Pediatricians is to wait to feed them cereal till 6 months. It decreases food allergies and they really don't need another source of food besides formula till then. Hmmmmm we aren't sure about...we decided to go half way, we'll start at 5 months. Any thoughts? Max weighs almost 16 pounds and Mal is petite...with those CHUBBY cheeks! They are in the 50th percentile for height and weight right now. Pretty darn good for being 4 weeks early.

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.

Chatter box!!

Mallory woke up talking and didn't stop the whole day!! THE GIRL CAN TALK! She is really been vocal the past couple days. And what funny faces she makes. I can't stop laughing at her. When she smiles her big cheeks make her eyes go squinty. It is so stinking cute!! I love it! Max better watch out as Mal is going to drive him crazy!

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!

Wow it has been a long time since I posted....our laptop has been on the fritz! VERY annoying! Anyway, a lot has happened since my last post. I have a new neice...Sophia Jane!! Born onthe 30th of Jan. She is precious! She weighed 9 lbs 11 ounces. Big girl! My twins met her for the first time last night. Got some really cute pictures! My babies look like giants compared to is amazing how fast they are growing! I can't believe it. They aren't tiny anymore.

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!!!
