Ut Oh Mommy....

This morning Max took my glasses off my face and snapped them in two....LITTLE STINKER! I often think I have a little Hulk Hogan on my hands. He is so darn strong! I couldn't be mad at him the look on his face when it happened was so darn cute!! But I tell you, he sure is a little monster these days! SO busy!
Some new things they are doing:
  • Still army crawling it all over the floor. Sure is rocking on all fours!
  • 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!

Cheeks and chins!!

Mallory is all Cheeks and thighs these days. I love the chubbiness! She is really developing a personality! She is so laid back and content. Max is such a busy boy! He is on the go constantanly and such a ham!
I haven't been doing ANY crafting the past month and a half...We had some basement issues and my craft room is tore apart right now. Plus I really don't have much free time on my hands. Next week I start my externship at the hospital. 3 days a week, I think I will probably cry my eyes out the first day. I will be working 12 hour shifts 7am to 7pm. So will go to work while the babies are sleeping and get home when they are sleeping! Going to be rough!
About 4 weeks ago I start working out again. Getting that last bit of baby weight off. I go to and am participating in the Body Challenge. It combines body pump, aerobic kickboxing, flexibility and a sound nutritional program (the zone diet) to get you in the best shape of your life. It is an 8 week long course and so far I have lost a total of 7.5 lbs, 6 inches off my waist and 5 inches off my hips. I feel great!! My goal is to lose 6 more pounds. I know I can do it!!!!

Finally back at the blog world! has been ages since I have blogged and I feel really guilty as I have not journaled how the babies are doing. I keep a calendar with all their milestones but blogging is much more fun! We had a sick household for a good month. My husband got it first then runny noses for the babies, then Max got RSV, then I got sick then onto Mallory! Man, it seemed like that sickness lasted a year!!! Thank goodness the days of breathing treatments are over for the babies! That was just an added step to my day. As of today, everyone is very healthy! (knock, knock!)

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...
