Put your hands together!

This week these little babies have found the fun in Clapping.  If we bust out in song or start cheering ourselves, they will smile real big, start bouncing up and down and clap their little hands. It's adorable!


It's friday and I'm looking forward to going home and spending a little time with the babies, then getting ready for a night out with my hubby. Thanks to Nana we get to have a night out with just the two of us.  It's been weeks if not more since we have done that (just mommy and daddy).  Gonna be a exciting night of dinner, possible movie, or maybe shopping for carseats. Maybe we will even go to baskin robbins for dessert.. That's right, exciting! 

Today at work I was gazing at my beautiful babies pictures.  One is from when they were four months.  I tried hard to remember that exact moment or what it was like when they were that old.  It's hard to recall the details, but I get a flood of emotion when I think of them or any part of my life in the last 11 months.

11 Months!

I blinked... Today my sweet little babies are 11 months old!  The last month has been full of visits from our beloved Papaw and our lovely Aunt Traci.  We also went to C-bad to celebrate our wonderful Pa's birthday.  Our regular visit's from Nana kept everyone happy.  We have also had many sleepless nights thanks to fevers, teeth and stuffy noses.  Both Paige and Owen have tested their legs and balance by letting go of whatever they are holding on to and standing unassisted for a short time.  Paige loves to walk around with mommy or daddies help and can do so very well just by holding on with one hand.  It won't be long til we are chasing her down.  Owen is a little less interested in walking but sure can move from point A to B in no time. 

Current interest include Piper's water bowl, the remote control, the toilet, the computer, mommies phone, and swinging any door straight into each others faces.. Time to time they will actually play with a toy. So much to look forward to in the next month.  More milestones, bithday parties, and so many hugs, kisses and cuddles that not even a care bear could stand it!

A little me time..

Currently enjoying a pedi and thinking about my babies. Its Friday so daddy is picking them up and I get to enjoy a little time alone.  Owen has had a feve rfor the past 4 nights (most likely teething related) and I'm hoping tonight will be the night he kicks it and he will back to his happy little self. This weekend is the in a few that its just us. Got a bday party and a to-do list for the house.  Lokking forward to it:)

Rockin shoes for the first time!

Today was the first day the babies wore shoes.  Hard to believe that for the first 10.5 months of their life they haven't had more than a sock on their tiny little feet!  If I had my way they would be barefoot for the next several years. It just seems more comfy..  I thought there would be much more protest, especially from little Owen but they were both surprisingly accepting of their new attire.  Granny wanted to buy them their first pair of shoes but let me pick them out.  I shocked myself when I choose matching white shoes.  I could have gone for something a little more flashy but I really liked how the simple white ones looked..  Viola said today when I picked them up, "they look like little cheerleaders".. 

Horsin around with papaw!

Not only papa do a lot of difficult chores around the house (sanding doors and trimming the tree) that mommy and daddy never get to but he also does a great job of entertaining these little babies.

Celebrating our PA!

Headed to Carlsbad for the weekend to celebrate pa's 62nd birthday.  Weekend was spent going to movies with Ross and Jalie, minus Paige and Owen, pick up soccer game in the back yard (Julie and I held the babies and Rocky and Dan held a beer), a nice nap for momma, and celebrating pa's birthday with a home cooked meal and cupcakes.  It also wouldn't be a trip home without a scary movie that is most likely not appropriate for kids but they watch it anyway. This time is was the Blair Witch Project..  Ross nor Jalie seemed to scared which is a little weird because the first time I saw it I was.

First piggy tails

Today at daycare Paige got her hairdo.. Viola put two tiny pig tails and they are so cute! They make her look like such a big girl. I hope they stay in so Nana can see them when she comes over for dinner..

Dan got a new phone, which means mama's got a new phone too.  The only reason I really wanted a smart phone was to get better at documenting our lives on my blog.  So here it is.  My second blog with a pic to document our exciting outing to best buy.  Paige was sleepy but enjoyed her time with daddy and Owen loved looking around and touching only the things mommy would let him. Obviously I'm gonna need a little practice.  I'm also not too sure I'm happy with the picture quality.  We shall see..


Colder weather is near and these little babies have known nothing but bare feet for the last 4 months.  Yesterday I decided to introduce socks and it didn't go so well. They both pitched a fit, Owen's lasting a little longer. This morning Paige accepted her feets fate but not little Owen. He again screamed and cried. At one point he reminded me of a crocodile doing the death roll.

Last night we were playing on the floor and Owen decided to crawl as fast as he could toward my face, he loves to give slobbery kisses with his mouth wide open. Instead of planting a kiss on me he slammed his face into my teeth. He ended up bleeding a little and had a fat lip.  He cried until I handed him over to his daddy.  We layed him down to try and see how bad it was and found that he has about 4 teeth coming in up top..  We thought it was only two!  Explains the fussy nights.
