MyTubo favorites from the week…..

Here are some of my favorite photos from the last week that I’ve posted on Mytubo.  Nap time is still a challenge..not with Grey.  I put them in separate rooms for nap time, so Grey goes in her swing.  She loves the swing and sleeps very well.  But Escher, he does not sleep well during nap time.  It takes him forever to fall asleep and he doesn’t stay asleep for long.  But at night time, he loves his crib.  Who can figure it out.

Morning time is always a bit crazy…especially when I’ve been up since 5 am.  I love how this shot captures the craziness, yet wonderful-ness of it all.

All River wants to do is “hold” and be with the babies.  I love this shot because it captures their little feet and how cute they are together.

River took this shot and I just love it.  It pretty much captures her personality!  It is one of my favorites.  And the last two are nature shots. that I took over the weekend.  I hope you are having a happy Monday!

Embrace the Camera….

Seems like all Escher wants to do is crawl these days.  He isn’t interested in sitting…he has no time to sit!  Grey is trying to figure out the crawling thing, but she hasn’t figured it out yet….rolling works better for her.  Laying on the floor with the babies is so much fun, but risky.  They love pulling hair….usually mine.  Well, go embrace the camera..before they grow up!


Bags of Love….

I love this store….Bags of Love, the personalized gift company!  They have personalized gift ideas made with love.  They turn your favorite photos into gorgeous things to treasure:  from canvases and handbags to wallpaper, cushions, beanbags and bedding; gorgeous personalized gifts to treasure forever. Custom made personalized gifts mean so much more for that special someone.

They sent me this gorgeous custom made shopper bag that I love so much**.  Every mom knows how hard it is to find a fashionable bag that you can just grab when you need to run out.  It is just the right size for all my diapering needs when I need to make some quick trips to the store.

I sent them a photo that my daughter Tuesday had taken and I told them just how I wanted it cropped. I got to choose from four different trim colors.  The real leather handles and the white waterproof lining are so practical.  Of course it has a handy interior pocket where I stored the diaper changing pad and a bottle!  I’ve already used it a ton and the patent vinyl still looks great.  Now, I know you could use this bag for the beach, shopping or even as a pocketbook, but I wanted an extra diaper bag and now I finally have one.  I have quite a bit of stuff that I like to take along with me…and it all fits in with no problem.  It is so nice and roomy.

Who doesn’t love getting compliments on their bag…well, I sure got a lot of compliments this weekend.  The colors on the bag are so vibrant.  I love the photo that I chose and I love how they printed it on the bag.  It is going to be used a lot.

Embrace the Camera……

Hi there and Happy Thursday!  It is so hard to find time to play with JUST River…the babies just NEED so much time!  Whenever I’m taking photos of the babies, of course River wants to get in there also.  So, whenever it is nap time, I try to take some time for just River and I….like crazy photos!  So, here we are, being goofy.  Have a great day and go embrace the camera!

Through River’s eyes….

River always wants to take photos with my phone or camera.  I love looking at children’s photography.  It is almost as good as their artwork!  Seeing the world from their perspective.  If you’ve never let your child use your it today.  You won’t be sorry.  Here are some of her photos.  Enjoy….





Did I mention that I went on a trip last week?  To California!  And did I mention that I left behind the babies and River????  For my birthday, my husband surprised me with a trip to California, to visit my brother.  It was just me, Tuesday and Quinn.  Christopher took the week off and stayed home with River and the babies.  Though, I was sad that they didn’t come….we had a great time.  And I had a great time sleeping through the night!

We had a wonderful time in Long Beach, Palos Verdes, Joshua Tree National Park, Palm Springs, Hollywood and so many other places!!  The weather and views were incredible!

And the food was delicious!!  Every place my brother took us to was so good.  The weather was incredible……sun, snow, rainbows, name it..we encountered it.  Also,  we saw tons wild life….skunks, raccoons, parrots, hummingbirds, possum….and that was just in my brother’s backyard!!

I’ve been spending so much time with River and the babies… was great having time with Quinn and Tuesday!  My niece flew out with us and stayed for one day!!  We loved having her with us and we were so sad when she had to leave.

It rained in Palm Springs and we saw a rainbow!!  Then we took the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway in Chino Canyon.  After the 10 minute ride the elevation at the Mountain Station is 8,516 ft…and it was a blizzard!  So fun!!  It was a great trip…but I was so happy to get home to my little ones!  I pumped the whole time I was gone…and it just isn’t the same as nursing!!


Bodily fluids….

Today has been one of those days….filled with nothing but cleaning……all types of bodily fluids.  Grey wasn’t feeling well during the night and kept throwing up.   Then Escher wet through his diaper.  Some how five am came way too fast…with both babies up and ready for the day.  I fed Grey and she decided she needed to throw up again…right after I put her in the not only did she have to be cleaned, but so did the swing.  (Did I mention that last night, during free naked time, she pooped and rolled all over it and through it… she went directly into the tub!)  Anyway, that is the type of day it has been….I’m tired.
