Lenten Promises...

I can't believe how time flies. Ash Wednesday and the Lenten season is coming. Now, I don't go to church nearly as much as I should be. I do want to go more often, but I don't want to take the girls...they would either cry or pick up too many germs =). But, I have been trying to figure out what I want to sacrifice and give up. Every year I seem to give up the same thing...soda or coffee or swearing. I can usually give these things up for the season, but always hop back on the train.

This year is different. Giving up caffeine is NOT an option. I already gave up my every day Starbucks when I quit working. I don't get as much sleep as I need, I need caffeine for my own sanity. I guess that would make it a true sacrifice, but man...I am not that good =)

This year I am going to do something...not give something up (except I am thinking about giving up chocolate too). I am going to start working out, 3 days a week. I am nervous about this because actually getting to the gym has been tough for me. Before the pregnancy, I went all the time...but that was a long time ago. I am nervous, but am hoping to succeed.

So wish me luck...

So proud!!

Alex is so happy!!
My little Keegan

I feel like my little girls are growing so fast. I sort of want to slow it down...crazy, I know since a few months ago I was dying for them to get big! The girls are really starting to develop their own little personalities. I still can't believe they are the same babies we brought home. They have just grown by leaps and bounds...

Keegan is just such a happy and smiley baby. She has been sick the past few weeks, but she is finally starting to feel like herself. She is rolling around too and just this morning she rolled from her back to her tummy!! We are so proud of her.

Alex is ALL over the place. Rolling around like a crazy person. She is too funny. She is ALWAYS trying to steal things from Keegan. It's so funny. During the day, when I am feeding them at the same time. She always tries to grab Keegan's bottle away...even though she has one! She is a such a smiler too!

Both the girls are trying to crawl. They get up on their little knees and try so hard, but usually just crash! They both love hanging with Daddy and talking football. It's funny, Rob acts like a commentator and the girls think it's hilarious.

Oh...and biggest news of all....The girls are (sort of) starting to sleep through the night!! Two nights without feedings..wahooo!!! There is a little bit of crying, but we try and do a bit of soothing/cry it out...hopefully we are the road to sleepiness!!

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! We are having a pretty lazy day at home, which I love about Saturdays. Hopefully I will have some photos to post soon...but in the mean time. I wish I was with my whole family to celebrate the love day. They are the people that I love the parents, sissies, nephews and nieces and brothers in law. I am truly blessed to have them all in my life.

8 months old!

Oh my goodness! I can't believe the girls are 8 months old today. They are getting so big! I truely feel so blessed to have the girls. We have hit a rough patch this week with a really bad cough and snotty nose, but they are just amazing still. Their little laughs make my days. Happy 8 month birthday my little girlies! love you so much!

Caught them!

So cute...Keegan and Alex fell asleep together in the same crib. They have never done that. I couldn't get a really good picture of it though! It was dark and I couldn't see a darn thing!

Also, Alx kicked butt today with her eating of carrots! Keegan wasn't too interested, but that's okay, she will get there!

A new beginning...

So, I am currently on day two of my new career. Rob and I decided that it would be best if I stayed home with the girls. They just weren't eating well at daycare and have been getting sick. We just don't want to have any setbacks and it was almost more stressful on Rob and me when I was working. I felt like I was never seeing the girls. So, Friday was my last day at work. It was sad, because I really like all the people....but I am so happy and I know this is the right thing!

It's been a little rough. The girls both have horrible colds, so it's been a rough day and a half. Keegan wants to be held all day, which I would love to do, but having two makes it difficult. By the evening last night, my arms were killing me. Carrying two growing babies is giving me a good workout! The girls are just too cute. They are smiling, rolling over and I think just starting the crawling stage...I think...They are both getting up on their knees and rocking their cute little tushies!

Wish me luck on the new career move, I know it's going to be the toughest job of my career!
