The Christening Saga Continues

Everytime I drove by this tree I thought this would be a perfect backdrop for a photoshoot and what a backdrop it was!

My girls weren’t enthused about another photoshoot.

My son was smiling enough for all of them. Didn’t he look dapper in his suit?

I did manage a few cute shots of the girls too.

Nine Month Checkup

If you’ve held the twins lately, you know they’re like bricks!

We went into their doctor’s appointment on Friday expecting them to be over 20 pounds (at least Batman). I was surprised to find out that neither of them made the cut.

Batman weighed 19 lbs 4 ounces (47%)

Nelle weighted 16 lbs 15 ounces (22%)

As far as length, Nelle at 27 1/2 inches; ahead by 1/2 an inch.

In any event, at the rate they are growing, in no time they will probably be bigger than their big sister (at 2 1/2 she is 27 pounds).

The moment of truth….SHOTS 🙈 It was both a relief to me and my son that they weren’t getting shots.

They do, however, have blood work in a few days 😨

That’s it for now.

I’m Right Behind You Batman

Not one to be outdone by Batman, his little sidekick sprung into action.

Earlier during the day we visited the National Arboretum.  We packed away and cleaned bottles while the kids played.  Hubby took them upstairs for bath time. I joined them a few minutes later. Just another typical day…

The bath assembly line was going when my littlest hopped up on the walker and took off.  Hubby saw her do it the first time.  I tried to get it on tape but she wouldn’t cooperate.

So now I have TWO twinsies on the loose. Who wants to come visit us? Don’t all say yes at once.

Happy Saturday everyone!

Am I Ready?

Well, ready or not it’s happening and YES I am screaming it from the hilltop!

I  was so excited yesterday I could barely contain myself. Here I was feeding the littlest miss after our trip to the park when big brother threw me for a loop!! He was not in the location I left him, which is normal, but this time was VERY different.

 

He was using the walker ALL BY HIMSELF 👏👏 My baby boy can walk, assisted, but he’s WALKING. I desperately wanted to call everyone distribute the video but I waited until hubby got home.

 

I’m so excited as I’m writing this. My Batman can walk. Definitely, no hiding from him now.  If he could get rid of his mommy separation issues, we would be golden.

 

GO BATMAN, GO!!!

Bye Bye EIGHTH Month

Tomorrow I will have NINE MONTH old twinsies.

This month we saw some MAJOR developments.

Both babies are crawling on all fours. They are pulling up on things and moving from furniture to furniture.

Little mama got her first tooth.

Her ears were pierced while we were in NJ.

The babies were christened in New Jersey.

We celebrated our first Mother’s Day. What a difference a year made?

We are at that juncture of CHILDPROOFING .  The discussion for a cage to contain the craziness was made but we opted for the pack and play. I like to shop but I save whenever I can. More money to go exploring, besides, I can see them breaking out with big sister at the helm.

I know I’ve been looking forward to this moment where they are mobile, but now I wish I could go back just a few weeks ago when they were DISCOVERING how to crawl. It was cute then, not so much now. There’s no hiding from them anymore. As soon as they hear my voice, operation go find mommy is in full effect.

I think within the next month they will be walking for sure. My money is still on my son walking first. What do you think?

EIGHT MONTHS

Today the twins turned 8 months. Only 4 more months until the big day!!!

I cannot begin to tell you just how excited I am (I literally just did my happy dance).  I must admit though, I am a nervous wreck because I have no idea what theme I will use for their party. There’s so much with keeping up with three littles under three I honestly haven’t thought much about it besides with two there’s so much more to think about.  If you come across any cute ideas please share ☺

SO.. what have they been up to?

Will we have walkers or crawlers this month? Stay tuned to find out 😉

XOXO Stacey

One Tooth, Two Teeth…

So his twin sister has been kicking his tush on all fronts. She rolled over, she sat up, she spoke before him. You get the picture.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t concerned a little bit. I know kids grow at their own pace and they say boys grow at a slower rate but I still compare. I’m human…might be super at times according to my two year old, but human nonetheless.

 

One can only take so much and I guess he had enough of us talking about him. When his first tooth emerged last month I was one proud mama. My fave little guy was finally in the lead! Yaaay!! Take THAT, little sis.

So as of today, Sunday, March 29th, he has TWO teeth.  His second tooth broke the gum. I wonder how long before Mr. Chompers takes over.  His little sister gives him a hard time.  Perhaps if he bites her just once, the world would be in balance 🙂

Is that so bad?
