This is probably the best thing ever!!!

POTD #27

Here are the girls playing nicely and not wrestling.

It's Thursday

And that means absolutely nothing. I was feeling under the weather today so we had a very laid back day. They played a lot and napped well which was great so that I could rest. I hope whatever I have comes and goes quickly. It is hard to take are of two other people when I feel awful. We made it through the day with smiles.
Here is a picture of Maddie looking cute. They are teething really bad right now. I think we may have break through soon. At least I hope we do!

POTD #26

After we went mall walking, it was time for naps. Since I think I am coming down with what Maddie has, I decided to try and nap. Well no fail, they didn't nap long enough for me to eat lunch and rest. This was my attempt to bring them to bed with me to continue to sleep. It lasted less than 5 minutes.

Mall Walking

So today the girls and I went mall walking with our neighbor and her adorable 1 month old. We got to escape our four walls! I still haven't found a great solution to getting both girls to the car by myself since they aren't in infant carriers anymore. I loaded them up in the stroller and wheeled them down. It's not a bad solution but adds 10 minutes to getting out of the house. While at the mall, Maddie sat up front and Morgan was in the back seat(we have a tandem stroller). Maddie smiled and giggled at everyone and Morgan just zoned out.
For the first time there were people pointing at them and talking about them, when I can see and hear them doing it. It was just silly really! Anyways, we are going to make it a weekly outing. I think after we do it a lot, it will get easier and easier to get out of the house.

Look at that sweet face!!! Maddie still has a cough and a stuffy nose. My poor baby.

Angela took this picture today!

Angela Day!!!

Today, my friend Angela came over and watched the girls while I went to work for a few hours. The girls had a blast. Angela did an amazing job watching them.

Morgan is getting closer to crawling. I found her in her crib this morning up on all floors. She did it throughout the day, but she was getting annoyed that she wasn't going anywhere. It is all a matter of time.

I just think this picture is beyond cute that I have to share. Here is Maddie sitting in her rocking chair, reading her book with a blanket.

Pajama Day!

POTD #22

They are BIG girls now! We got rid of the infant carriers and replaced them with convertible car seats. Now, I just have to figure out where to keep my stroller in the house so I can get them in and out of the house at the same time.

POTD #21

Grandma and I took the girls for a walk. They were all bundled up and sitting big girl style in the stroller.

Joining the Circus!!!

Today was the last day at grandma and grandpa's. We leave tomorrow morning to get back home to see daddy and Sophia. I dressed them in super duper cute outfits that I just got for them. They are from Little Missmatched. I put the outfits on and all day I could only think that they looked like clowns, in a really really cute way. Check it out for yourself.

The girls are sooooo in love with grandpa. They were both snuggling with him today after their afternoon nap. Morgan actually got mad because Maddie was in his lap and Morgan was just next to him. Morgan was looking up at him with such love in her eyes. It melted grandpa's heart. Here is a picture of some grandpa lovin.

Here is Morgan. She has just started biting her bottom lip. And as usual and always, it's beyond cute!

Big Day with Grandpa and Mr. Bill

Today, Grandpa and Mr. Bill Williams babysat the girls while Grandma and I went shopping. M&M started the day off with a solid 2.5 hour nap! Yes you read that correctly, they NAPPED!!! Anyway, they had so much fun together. Mr. Bill and Grandpa had a blast as well. Here are a few pictures from their day together.


Here is an adorable picture of the girls watching Baby Einstein after their bath today.

It's Maddie, cute as always!

Grandma and Grandpa's House

Yes, we made another trip down to the Cape today. It's always nice to have help playing and taking care of the girls and grandpa and grandma love them to bits. I thought that they would sleep the whole way down but after getting stuck in traffic on the expressway, Maddie and Morgan decided that they only needed a 30 minute nap. They hate traffic just as much as I do!

We brought their favorite toys down for them to play with. So they played and played. They started to get fussy so I sat Morgan up in front of Maddie and they reached out for one another. It was so amazing to see their connection. They always seem to grab each other's hand but this was more like the wanted to hug but couldn't figure out how to do it. Here is a picture Grandpa captured.

HAPPY 7 MONTHS OLD MADISON AND MORGAN!!!!

POTD #16

It's rare to get a photo that has both of them smiling. They were fighting over that toy when I made them smile.

I think I am in trouble...

Oh boy, Morgan is going to be crawling in no time. She got up on all fours today and was sliding backwards instead of forwards. So it is only a matter of time.

Before the day was over, Maddie was starting to do the same thing.
The girls really interacted a lot with each other today. It was really amazing to see. Usually, they parallel play with the occasional interaction. Today was different. Here is a video that is beyond adorable.

POTD #15

Morgan had a little too much fun with dinner. She wanted to bowl the whole time Jeff was feeding her. So he gave it to her when she was done. It was quite a mess but totally adorable. Maddie was perfectly clean!

Spoiled Little Girls

So not only did they have their big sister to play with all weekend, they had grandma and grandpa Sheldon to play with. They got held and cuddled all day yesterday and part of today.
They will get showered with more love later this week when we head back down to the cape for a few days for some R&R and then another fun weekend with big sister Sophia.

Saturday POTD #14

Sorry I didn't post a picture yesterday. We were at my parents house. But here is yesterday's picture. It's Morgan giving Maddie a foot massage. It was very cute.

PsOTD #14

Here is just one of the many reasons why I love having twins. How cute is this...



I had to post two pictures today because they are just too precious not to. That is Maddie with her arm around Morgan.

TGIF

The weather was very nice today, about 40 degrees. We were able to go for a walk. It was wonderful to get out of the house and get some fresh air. The girls loved it so much, they fell asleep, which was my hope all along! Unfortunately, the side walks in town were awful but our stroller handled it all very well.
We are off to grandma and grandpa's house tomorrow for a little visit. Oh and big sister Sophia is with us this weekend too. The girls love when she is around to play with. And I love it too!

Here is picture of the girls all bundled up for our walk.

POTD #13

These girls are definitely part Sheldon. Here is Maddie on her computer, making Grandpa proud.

They are growing!!!

So my beautiful angels are growing. Just a month or so ago, their jumperoo and exersaucer were a tad too big. But today, I had to move each of them up a notch because M&M are too tall. Our neighbor and her not even 3 week old baby stopped by and hung out with us today. I can't remember M&M being that small. They are getting so big. I am not sure I am ready for that.

POTD #12

Morgan woke up from her nap early. Apparently, she was waiting for an important email!

Is it spring yet?

Oh man, I am tired of being stuck inside because of the cold weather. I really wanted to take the girls for a walk today but with a wind chill of 13 degrees, no thank you. I dream of the day when I can pack them up and head to the beach and go for a walk or when they start walking themselves and can go to a playground.
Instead, we hung out at the house and practiced sitting up which I think they have mastered! They played in their jumperoo which they are getting really good at as well. At first they would just sit in it and play with the toys. Now they are bouncing and trying to reach for the toys hanging above them. Maddie also found herself staring back at her in the mirror. And she thought it was very funny. She sat there and giggled at herself for a good 10 minutes. It was awesome. Sorry I didn't catch it on video. Next time I will.

POTD #11

I can't get enough of their smiles. Jeff took this one of Maddie.

Daddy Day!

So like every Tuesday, the girls get to hang out with Jeff while I go to work for a few hours. They always have a good time and Jeff took some photos. So here is a few...



As you can see we now have a fun alphabet letter mat down now in our living room. Doesn't quite go with our decor but the girls like it and that is all that matters. I am also starting to work with them on sippie cups. Here are pictures of my big girls.
Morgan

Maddie


Then our good friend and neighbor stopped by and did this to Maddie...

Yup it's our first ponytail!!! There is only about 10 strands of hair but it was still really cute!

Monday, January 11, 2010

POTD #10

Here is Maddie. She did fall asleep for a little teeny tiny bit on Angela.

Nap? Nap? Not Maddie!!!

Oh yes, we are on day two of Maddie deciding naps are for wusses. Morgan is slightly a wuss in Maddie's eyes. Morgan is sleeping better than Maddie but marginally. They are such smiley babies even when completely exhausted.

Monday's are a fun day. My very dear and amazing friend, Angela comes over and hangs out with us. The girls love to play with her. They think she is way more fun than me.

Nothing else super exciting happened today. Just playing, smiles and a tad bit of crankiness. Hopefully, Maddie's nap strike will end tomorrow.

POTD #9

Sorry this is a day late. This is Morgan laughing because Daddy was tickling her.

Sunday, January 10, 2010

Who needs sleep?

Not Maddie!!! Morgan doesn't rank it high on her list either. Naps today were a big fat joke to my little angels. So towards the end of the day there was one big pot of crankiness cooking. Hopefully the new jammies I bought them yesterday will bring a full night sleep. Ahh, one can dream.

Catchin up

Sorry I have just posted a picture the last few nights but sometimes after watching the girls all day, then cleaning up, cooking dinner and hanging with Jeff, the motivation is just not there. I will try to be better.

The last days have been fun. The girls have been sitting up more and talkative. If there was any doubt that these girls were mine and Jeff's (not that there is doubt), just listen to them for a few minutes. They are loud and won't stop!!!!

Yesterday, we took them to BJ's Wholesale Club. It was fun to take them out. We stocked up on groceries and the girls took a little rest in the stroller.

Let's see... what else is new? We stopped swaddling them for nap. It is a hard road but it is for the best. Especially since they can break out of the swaddles before we even walk out of their room, which is like 5 feet.

Off to have a good day with my family!

POTD #8

I promise to write more tomorrow. I am just too tired to do it now!!! But here is picture of Maddie. We took a field trip to BJ's Wholesale Club to stock up on necessities. I took this with my blackberry so please don't judge the quality. Look at that cute face and those amazing eyes!!!

POTD #7

Madison and Morgan have THE best smiles. They could seriously melt anyone's heart, BUT they rarely let me capture it on film (or digital whatever). So here is Morgan on one of those rare occurrence.

POTD #6

Today we practiced sitting up again. And they did great. Jeff thinks it looks like a Sumo ring. Whatever works!!!!

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

POTD (picture of the day)#5

This is Maddie and Morgan wrestling for what we call the "crack ring". We now have two of them but they still like to fight for it. Guess who won???

Green Beans!!!

So today was M&M's first day eating green beans. Every 4 days they get to try something new. They have liked pretty much everything I have made for them. Peas weren't a big hit but then again, I will never make them eat peas when they are older so its okay! If it's one thing that M&M like to do is eat. If they get cranky before a meal, I just need to sit them in their highchairs and they quiet right down. They like to suck on the straps and watch me mix their food.

We worked on sitting up which they are getting very good at. Hopefully they will be experts soon so I can put together the cool house that Grandma and Grandpa got for them for Christmas. Our neighbor and their 1.5 week old baby came over to hang out. It's nice to have company over. Maddie was singing (using the term loosely) the whole time. I was surprised Avery slept through it all.

Nothing too exciting to report today. Maybe tomorrow we will have a dance party. They like to watch me dance like a fool.

Tuesdays are special days!!!

So Tuesdays are special days for Maddie and Morgan. Their Daddy stays home from work in the morning and watches them while I go to work. They love having Daddy all to themselves. So much that they don't take a good morning nap. But that's okay. Today was even more special than usual. Morgan took a short 2nd nap and Maddie took a loooong 2nd nap. So Morgan and I and then Maddie and I got to spend some one on one time together. It was a lot of fun to have that special time with each one.

Today, I learned that my girls are very ticklish. I had them both giggling up a storm. It melted my heart. Here is not so great video but it is still the cutest thing ever.



And the Picture of the Day was taken by Jeff.

Just another day

So today was a typical day in the life of Madison and Morgan. They ate, they slept(not as much as I would have liked but I don't get a say), they pooped and they played.
The battery in my camera died and we have lost the charger so I thought my New Year's resolution was going to be broken! But my neighbors to the rescue!!! They had the same charger so alas we will have a photo today! The new charger is on order so we will not have this problem again.

So here is Morgan already looking annoyed by the fact that I take her picture everyday now!

Snow Day

It has snowed here all weekend. Jeff and Sophia decided to go out and build a fort in the parking lot. I decided that M&M needed to suit up and see what all the white stuff was. Here are some pictures...
