'saucer love

My little babies are getting so big. Daddy is taking them in this week for their four month well- baby check up - which means more shots :( - so we shall see just how big they are!

A few weeks ago they were getting really restless and acting like they really needed something to keep them entertained and boy did we find the solution...exersaucers!! They love them.

( we lucked out and scored 3 of these beauties for a total of like $8. Woo hoo!)

Ezra's first time...he's thinking about liking it.

Ezzy loves looking at the mirror. I would too if I was as cute as him!

Edie loves her pink 'saucer

Look at that sweet face! I just want to eat her up!

PS I just figured out how to upload more than one picture on here at once! I have been doing it one by one this whole time. Don't know if I should be super excited that it's so much easier or embarrassed that I never noticed before :)

rollin' rollin' rollin'

my babies are rolling! ok not that much, but ezra rolled at least twice last week and eden rolled over in her crib this morning. it's exciting and sad at the same time to see them hit these milestones. they really do grow fast!!

pet peeve

today ezra has literally been screaming almost every waking moment. i love him but sometimes he drives me nuts! the sooner we teach him signs so he can communicate, the better! both babies are currently sleeping so i thought i'd take this moment to vent about one of my pet peeves. i can't think of many pet peeves that i have but today i realized i do have at least one...

the conversation went like this-

michael's clerk: aww, you have your hands full! twins?

in my mind: oh no, please no chit chat. i am trying to juggle a double stroller, a hand basket, screaming ezra and my wallet. please make my check-out quick.

me out loud: yep

clerk: one boy and one girl?

me: yep

clerk: wow, that's neat; that doesn't happen very often

me: yeah, i got lucky

in my mind: wondering what statistics she's referring to?

clerk: are they identical though?

in my mind: are you kidding me?

me out loud: nope not identical if they are a boy and girl

seriously people. this happens about once a day. i thought everyone knew b/g twins could not be identical. you know, different parts and all? guess not.

ps i think i did a pretty good job at not letting on that i was annoyed and honestly josh and i usually just laugh about it. i blame my attitude on the aforementioned screaming baby day.

the race is on!

ok, not really. but tomorrow will make 5 weeks until the Susan G. Komen race for the cure!! i posted a while back about my goal to complete the 5k on 5/8/10 [side note-if any of you are still considering it, it would be fun to all go together!!]

the race raises money to find a cure for breast cancer. it's such a great cause and has given me some more motivation in the getting-into-shape-category. i've run the race before but this year i'm planning on walking it with josh and, of course, eden and ezra.

eden and ezra have been my biggest supporters! they go with me on my walks and keep me company. nice of them, eh? they sure do love it outside. sometimes if we go in the evenings josh comes too and i've even been able to jog a couple of times. getting back into shape (slloooooowly) feels good. i just hope life doesn't get too crazy when i go back to work and i can still make time for a little exercise.
