Time passes quickly when you have two little ones.  I can’ t believe my little guys are nineteen months old.  And I can’t believe school is almost out and summer is almost here.  Escher and Grey are both saying lots of words and even putting two words together to form small sentences…”Mommy ewww” is a popular one! They also love to tell me when they pee in their diapers. Funny how things are so cute the FIRST time, but then get so OLD in a day or two.  Escher is obssessed with cars and Grey loves her babies.

I’ve been wanting to start a photo wall forever.  I got a great deal on shutterfly.com, so my photo wall has finally begun…we’ll see how it grows!!

Christmas Stockings…finally finished…


Well….it only took about a year, but I finally finished everyone’s Christmas stockings….with the help of my mom.  Tuesday, Quinn and River all had stockings that my mom made.  Then, two years ago, Tuesday lost hers.  I don’t know how it happened…but I guess, somehow it got thrown away with all the Christmas wrapping paper.  I was convinced that it was lost somewhere in Tuesday’s room.  But, when we switched her room with River’s we took everything out and there was no stocking.  I was so sad that she wouldn’t have a stocking that my mom had made for her.  Then, Escher and Gray came along and they needed stockings.  I rummaged through my parents Christmas decorations and I found two stockings my mom had made for decorations…so they became Escher and Greys.  Then, I found something else she had cross stitched.  I was nervous to try to make it into a stocking….because if I messed up….there was nothing else to use.  But, after some thought and a lot of waiting, I finally did it.  It turned out pretty well.  What didn’t turn out well was my cross stitching with the names.  Oh well…I’m just not a cross stitcher!!

Tea Parties and other stuff…

Everybody is feeling a bit coldish today.  Because of the weather and because of their noses.  So, today was filled withnose wipes, boogies, crying, tears and smelly diapers.  I don’t know why sick babies seem to have very smelly diapers!  River was very happy that we were able to squeeze in a tea party. I had promised her one the day before…but things didn’t work out…so today was the day.  Kitty had a lot to say and was very happy she was invited!  Happy Thursday!

They love to read…and read….and read…..

These days I’d say the babies favorite thing to do is read.  They love to sit on a lap and listen to stories.  Or they love to sit in a box and read stories.  Or they love to sit anywhere on the floor and read…..and read…..and read.  It is quite adorable.  Escher’s current favorite story is Goodnight Gorilla.  Grey doesn’t seem to have a favorite, though she does love What Do You Say?  I love watching their little expressions when they are listening to a story or looking at a book all on their own.  You can tell that they are really concentrating and examining what is going on in the pictures.  It is quite adorable.

One Year Photos….

Well, Tuesday and I finally had time to take some photos for the babies one year birthday!!  It didn’t go perfectly…but, then again..does anything!  I am just happy that it was a nice day and we were able to get out and get some cute photos!  I love how in some of the photos their expressions look so similar.  By the end, Escher was not happy.  Neither was River.  River thought the photo shoot should have been just for her and she did NOT want to share the spotlight.  I told her that we could take some photos of her, for a school project..but she did not want to cooperate.  But, we managed to get quite a few cute photos….One of the problems was that we didn’t have shoes for the babies.  And though, I love them without shoes…they did NOT like touching the grass!!  So…next stop…shoe store!!


Have I had this as my title before??? If not..I should have!  Getting into the swing of school has been crazy.  I knew it would be a lot…but I had no idea it would have been this hard!  Everyone decided to get sick right as school started…Tuesday had walking pneumonia, Christopher had pneumonia and River had some strange coughing thing that wouldn’t go away..so back and forth to the doctor’s office we went…again and again.  Many medications later….some are better..some are still getting better.  River is finishing up the last of her medications today..but she still has to do a nebulizer three times a day..which is all new to me.  I just never had sick children before..we’ve always been so lucky!!  Pneumonia, coughs, ear infections…and now Tuesday has a fracture on her growth plate on her ankle!!  I am tired of running to the doctor’s office every other day!!  But in between all the sick appointments, the babies had their one year wellness checkup…All went well.  They are healthy and growing!!

Happy Friday!!
