Feeding the ducks! Kind of...

Tia and I took the girls to a park after Paige got out of school today. We set up a blanket and wanted them to feed the ducks. Of course, they did a lot more feeding themselves than the poor duckies.

Paige has several toy ducks and one of her favorite books is Counting Duckies. She knows a duck says, "quack." She is actually pretty good at that one! But when she heard an actual duck quack, she confused it with a puppy barking. She kept looking around saying, "puppy?" I guess my "quack" sounds a lot different than a real quack.

Logan is definitely the queen of the snacks. Luckily, Paige has a size advantage, being 3.5 months older, so she always gets her snack back!

Another successful trip with the double stroller!

Me - notsomuch. I thought - hey - I have been feeling pretty great. I'm going to try and walk from Tia's to the park. It is close enough! Not a good idea. I am paying for it big time right now. My babies are probably weighing in at around 4 pounds each - then with all the extra fluid, placentas...I am beat.

Silly girls - we brought the Wheat Thins for the ducks!

Such a lovely place.
There was a cute family taking their family pics in the park right above us. They were all decked out in western gear - belt buckles, flannel-type shirts. I thought they looked precious. Tia thought they looked cheesy. It is pretty clear that I am the gal from Oklahoma and she is from Minnesota!

We are in for a busy weekend! David is working very hectic and long hours right now. He is going to try to make it to Dallas for the big OU vs. Texas game. I hope he does - but he might have to stay home and work. Mom and I are going shopping to hopefully make more progress on the boys' room. We decided we will DVR the game on Saturday then come home and watch it that evening. So no one text me, FB message me, email me...or any other form of communication...any information about the game! Please and thanks : )

Loving the weather

While it did get a little warm this afternoon, we had a gloriously cool morning today. Paige and I had the whole day to ourselves today. We had to go to the grocery store, do some laundry, and get the house picked up. We decided to forget all of that and play outside with the puppies! It was even more fun when the sprinkler system came on!

Not sure what was making her mad here - but I thought it was funny.

Sweet Beefy!
Big brother, Spike.

I die for this perfect face.

And I love her blonde, wavy hair.

I fall more and more in love with my baby girl every day. God took his time making her - but goodness - did He truly outdo himself with this one!

I hope that one day, Paige understands how much happiness she brings to my life.

We are currently testing out our fun fall wardrobe (her - not me. I am over all of my maternity clothes. Plus, most of them don't even fit me anymore). I am thinking this little fall number is a winner : )

Thankful, yet again, for sweet friends

Between David working hectic hours, the stresses of a twin pregnancy, my teething has been wearing me out lately. I am so thankful for all the phone calls checking on me, stops by my house to visit...and fantastic surprises in the mail!! Lindsey is a great friend and is making sure my boys will get to stay cozy and spit-up in style : ) Seriously - how perfect does this stuff go with my boys' decor?!?

Please note the delicious looking brownies in the background. No, I am not allowed to have any : (

Thanks again, Lindsey. You are such a blessing in my life!

Another Tuesday, another day at school!

School is still a huge hit. After breakfast, I tell Paige that we are going to school today, and she runs to her room to get dressed. Then she runs and waits at the door leading to the garage. It is too cute.

We did some more naked time last night to help with her bum. I am glad I'll have all these pictures of her to use against her one day : )

We also decided to test out our new stroller yesterday. Paige liked it...but I'm not sure what she will think of the little baby boy sitting next to her!

belly, nursery, and PAIGE pics!! : )

Nursery is coming along - slowly. I still need an end table for the glider, a changing table, rug, curtains, and decor for the wall. But at least there is progress!

I love the little light switch cover!
I am loving the matching outfits!! The boys' closet is making more progress than anything : )

Here are some of my favorites:
I die for little boys is Ralph Lauren!



We had to move the cribs. First - even though this is a big room, it is hard to fit 2 cribs, a big comfy rocking chair, and all the other things we need. This seemed to be the best way to maximize space. Plus, I need to have the wall with the central vac clear.

Hello 30 weeks!

Things are actually going great pregnancy-wise. The weather is getting cooler and I am somehow feeling better. Because of the gestational diabetes, I am eating very healthy. And probably not enough. I have lost 5 pounds in 7 days on the diet. I see the dietician on Thursday so I plan on discussing ways to keep my calories up while keeping the blood sugar down. On that note - I am doing really well. I rarely have a reading above 100 (I am supposed to stay below 120). My fasting is always in the low 70s, which is excellent.

But I am a bit worried, as I am now up just 20 pounds for the pregnancy. Hopefully the boys are growing and growing, and I am just getting skinnier : )

It is pretty clear that the diet isn't making my stomach any smaller!


Now, when people ask me when I am due, I just say, "soon." If I say November, they freak out about how big I am. If I tell them I am having twins, I lose 5 minutes of my day because I have to sit and listen to, "oh my gosh! Are they your first? Oh my! 3 under 2? You are going to have your hands full! That is a lot of diapers to change! Do you have any help? I grew up with some twins. They played basketball. Well, one of them did. I think it was John. What was his brother's name? Hold on - I'll think of it..."

Yeah. I just say, "soon," smile, and walk away!

Time for fall! I am loving Paige's fall wardrobe. I was so excited to break out our first turtleneck of the season for Gymboree this morning.

Diaper rash made our weekend long. Well, that and some other things. isn't always perfect.

I am pretty sure all these teeth she is getting is causing our constant dirty diapers, which is making her poor little bum red and sore. It breaks my heart. But we get in some naked time every day and are on the mend for sure.

Saturday we had a gymnastics birthday party!! It was so fun! Paige had a blast playing in the ball pit, climbing, sliding, and jumping. Thank goodness I brought David along with me. There is no way this preggers could have chased her all around.

All the cute daddies watching their loves play. One thing I love our our group of friends is that I know how much we appreciate our children. All the dads are super involved and are constantly doting on their little ones.

Busy week in our house. David is working hellish hours, which means we are both exhausted. But things should calm down in a few weeks.

Hope everyone has a blessed week!

And happy 30 weeks to me : )
