Two months old

Our twins are now two months old, I can't believe how fast time flies. Landon and Ava are both getting bigger by the day it seems. Here are the stats from their two month well check appointment.

9 lbs 4 oz
21 1/2 inches long
7 lbs 12 oz
20 1/2 inches long

The doctor says that they are both doing really well, both are eating so well and growing just like they need to be. They both got 3 shots which broke my heart to see them cry like that but soon enough it was over and they both just went to sleep. They both did so well.

In other news... Grant stepped on a hammer in the garage which ended up requiring 6 stitches in his foot and a tetnus shot which was great. He was out of commission for a few days but is now on the mend.

I have officially returned to work for 1 or 2 days a week which is an adjustment for those couple days where I am more exhausted then usual.

Our dogs love the babies, we usually catch Mogley napping in there with them if the door is open, I think he is their protector now. Toby just wants to cuddle with them.

I think we have gotten our schedule down pretty well, we are very lucky and I sure hope I do not jinx myself when I say we have good sleepers for babies, they both sleep straight 4 hour stretches at night so we both are still getting decent sleep for having two new babies at home.

I have a few other posts that are floating in my head at the moment including our Family reunion, 4th of July and baby play dates that will just have to wait for another day, here is both of them together on their two month birthday!!

Newborn photoshoot

Here are some of our favorite shots from the twins 1st newborn photoshoot. These photos are now our little treasures of when they were so small and precious.

Happy Due Date Babies!!

The title says it all, my babies originally due date was today July 6th, 2010, the day that was burned into my brain the day the stick came out positive!! Instead I have to get July 6th out of my head and replace it with May 13th, 2010 the day the were actually born, while they are now 7 and a half weeks old, sleeping quietly in their mama-roos (LOVE THESE), I can not believe we have had them both home for a month now and soon they will be 2 months old! Time really does fly with little ones in the house.
I am headed back to work part time for awhile to adjust to life working with twins at home. I am excited to be back at work and sad to leave them even if it is only for a day or two a week.

mama got a brand new....diaper bag!

So Grant has been telling me that I should get some sort of "push" present, I could not decide what I wanted, I'm not a jewelry kind of girl, I only ever wear my wedding ring. I thought and thought and finally decided after using my boring diaper bag I bought for 35 dollars from Lands end that I wanted something much much cuter! I kept dragging around my purse with my diaper bag as to not loose my stylish feeling.

I love Coach, I mean love. I looked on their website for diaper bags and I found one I loved, the only problem is I could not bring myself to spend 500 dollars on it. So I remembered the new Coach outlet down south of us and decided to call and see if they had any diaper bags in stock. They did, so I headed out to Coach.

I now am the proud new owner of this....
My new diaper bag!! It is much much better then my other one, I feel like me with it, and best of all , it actually fits everything I need for the twins inside! I got such a killer deal on it, 50% off with an additional 20% off coupon for the 4th of July weekend. Just because I have my babies now doesn't mean I want to become a boring mom. I can't wait until Ava can appreciate a purse, now if only they had a kids line...
