Happy Halloween!

This time last year we were getting to know our Paige and Owen and trying to learn how to take care of two babies.  I have to say we are doing a pretty good job so far!

It's 8:30 and these little owls are wide awake.  It's Halloween so I guess it's time for a celebrating. They are enjoying a little play time on the floor with Nana and daddy. We had little monkey costumes but they never made it on.  They did however wear their skeleton jammies to daycare and to dinner so that was their dress up.  After dinner we had a few trick or treaters and the babies liked looking at the little kids.  Next year I'm sure will be more exciting with candy and costumes.  Oh and don't forget the pumpkin carving, that is a must next year.

Tomorrow is a big day.  They move into the 1 year old room.  I said goodbye to the ladies in the baby room today and cried a little. They were a little dramatic at times but they were very good at taking care of my babies and I always felt safe with them in their care.  I've been told the ladies in the next room are great as well.  It's just change and that is always a bit hard for this mommy...

Dear Sweet Babies

Tomorrow you are one!  It's so hard to believe that it's been a whole year.  Call me crazy (you're daddy actually did) but I want to do it all over again.  The amount of love and joy you have brought into our lives in such a short time is indescribable.  You have made us a family and being your mommy is the most amazing role I have, or will ever have in my life.

This time last year I'm pretty sure I had just enjoyed a very large dinner of Penne Con Sugo with meatballs from Lorenzos after being starved all day as they tried to induce me.  You guys were in no hurry and almost 48 hours after they tried every trick in the book the doc decided it was time to meet you.  Less than an hour later your daddy was helping give you your first bath while I recovered.  That was the first night of the rest of our lives as a family of four.

Owie's Turn for first steps!

Oct. 24th just 5 days away from his first birthday, our little Owie took his first steps.  Thank goodness daddy was home sick today or he might have missed them.  We had just got home from daycare and we were hanging out in the living room.  We were trying to get Paige to walk and without much coaxing Owen let go of what he was holding on and took about 2 good steps..  It was special because we (dan and I) were both there to see it..  Two walking babies,,uh oh!

Birthday for Mama!

My first birthday as a mama was terrific.  We had a bbq with some friends and co-workers, there were about 10 kids!  I'm guessing parties with kids is going to be a new trend around here.  Daddy did a great job of making it special.  I got my favorite ice cream cake and the BOB double stroller that I have wanted for months.. Thank you Daddy!  Another high light was Alex playing for me one of my favorite Jack Johnson songs..  I know it was not his favorite song to learn but it was really sweet of him..  It was a  great birthday and I look forward to many more spent with my wonderful family and friends.

First Steps for Paige!

Saturday, October 15th our little Paigey-Poo took her first steps.  Nana was the first witness and quickly called me over.  She was in our bedroom and when I got there she took about two more wobbily steps then settled on her tush.  It was very exciting!
