Do twins sometimes get cheated?

I ask because today was such a beautiful day. I thought that it would be so fun to take the girls to the park. Then I realized that there are two of them and one of me. Maybe we would be fine, but all signs pointed to chaos. They are both still small and would need help. And, they really enjoy sprinting in opposite directions.

But, maybe, just maybe...I am the problem. I was scared. Should I face my fears and just go?

Who needs diapers??

Alex has now figured out how to take off her diaper. We may be in trouble.

This afternoon, I had stripped her down to change clothes when she took off. I had Keegan with me, so I just dressed her first. Then I turned around and saw a cute little bare butt take off. My first thought was to run and get the camera...Then I realized, I should probably cover her up. TOO LATE!

I found her diaper and a puddle of pee right next to it...on our carpeting. Good thing winter is coming, no running free with no clothes on for her. I just hope she doesn't figure out how to take her pants off!

15 month check up

My girls are too funny...and too cute. We have had a very busy week. We had to go to the doctor's for their 15 month check up. They are doing so great. The doctor seemed happy with their progress, but not so happy with me =) He wants them off the bottle and told me I am not allowed to give the girls milk if they wake up only a couple hours after bedtime.

We decided to go cold turkey on the bottles. We were only using them at naptimes and bedtime, so it hasn't been too difficult. I couldn't be more happy about it. We were using Dr. Brown's bottles and there are just so many parts.

One the nighttime feeding front...I am still not totally on board with the doctor. With the girls still be so small, I feel like it's good for them to get some extra nutrition. He told us that they need to go 8 hours without a feeding and that we could go in a feed them at 3-4. My thought is, what difference does it make then...if we go in at 10 and then they sleep to 7?

I am still trying to figure out how to watermark photos and will then be putting some up!

Who you crappin...

It's the first Bears game of the season, so I thought this Ditka quote was a great one to use...

My girls' were born early...10 weeks to be exact. They did so awesome, but were of course tiny when they were born. That was 15 months ago, and you know what? They are still small for their age. Dr. B says that they are thriving and doing awesome. That they are just small.

So, my favorite thing...or not...is when people constantly tell me how small they are. Duh, like I didn't know that. Then comes all the questions....

But my all time fav happened last week. I ran into a former co-worker who had her daughter around the same time as me. She sees the girls and tells me..."oh they are SOOO big!" And, she wasn't saying it in that "oh they have grown so much since the last time I saw them"...no she just wanted to talk and talk about how big her little girl is, how much she is eating, sleeping, etc.

Who you crappin lady? I understand being proud of your children, but don't bring them up under false pretenses...like you really think the girls are SOO big...

My life...

I love watching my girls grow and gain different, unique personalities. They are just amazing and I couldn't be any more proud of them.

They have several new tricks that they love to show off! Alex loves to blow raspberries on her forearm...well, make any kind of loud noise! She also loves to sprint to an open gate and try to sneak through!

Keegan loves to play peek a boo and give her animals kisses. It just melts my heart!

They have also started to chase each other around and scream with delight.

They are so amazing and such a gift!

Crazy nights...

So, I was a little late getting back home from my parents. So, the ya-ya's were not too pleased with their mommy. I decide that I will feed them a little something in hopes that they don't wake up in the middle of the night hungry.

YaYa K was not too into eating, was wanting to crawl on her highchair, so I put her down. Man, she smelled really foul, but figured I would finish up with Alex first, then change her. That was my first mistake. Literally, she came crawling up to me and I about vomited. I mean, I change diapers all day long and this was bad. But, still, I decide to wait a couple of minutes while she talks to me at my feet. Then..I just can't take it and I lift her up to take her to the changing table and I get poop all over me. I mean, it was so gross. Of course, she had just gotten a bath right before I left my parents. Poop everywhere.

So, I clean K up (after realizing we were out of wipes, luckily there were some in the basement) and let her free. I went to check out the aftermath. All over me, her highchair, the floor. Oh, and not just on her highchair, but all over her little restraints that she wiggles out of!I am trying to clean it up before the girls decide to play in it and talking to Rob on the phone (while freaking out). And all I hear is silence.

Crap. Keegan has crawled all the way up the stairs, Alex was hot on her trail. So, i have to grab both of them, put up the gate and then put a blanket on the gate because they know how to climb over it to get up the stairs.

Then, I keep finding poop. All over the place. Now, on to mopping and sniffing for poop while drinking. Honey, you owe me one.

Seriously, how do we go from crawling to sprinting??? Boom-b has been sprinting around for a few weeks, but now K is sprinting everywhere. I really think she just didn't want to walk before...All the sudden, she just started standing up and walking....maybe she was practicing in her crib =)
