"Life is too short to be anything but happy, Love deeply, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything with no regrets, Forget the past with the exception of what you have learned and remember everything happens for a reason."
The girls get to stay at home with mommy today. We got some stuff done and then got ready for pictures tonight.
Family/Christmas/9 Month Pictures
Today is 11/12/13 :)
Kenna got her first goose egg. I freaked out because it looked really bad. She slammed her head on the end table in the living room. Of course this happened the day before pictures. I guess it will be a story down the road. Not excited for them to get hurt anymore!
We got up around 7 and fed the girls and got them ready. We both got dressed and ready and started getting things packed up. We got pictures with the girls and nana. We watched tv for a little bit. Once the girls had lunch and everything was packed into the car we headed out. We said our goodbyes and headed towards the freeway
We wanted to get some lunch before we got on the road. We really wanted bdubs but when we got there there was a half hour wait so we did not want to wait that long. We finally decided on TGIFridays. We got in and got a table. They had really cool “slings” for the girls carseats. They were actually highchairs that flipped into a “sling” We ordered an appetizer and drinks then ordered lunch. We were in there for way to long the girls started to get antsy.
When we left we headed towards the freeway to head back to Ohio.
Once we got home we unpacked, Steven went to pick the dogs up and then we headed to Matt and Kendras for dinner. We got home late and then headed to bed.
The girls did not sleep very well. They were up a couple times and up early the next morning. When everyone got up Nana made some breakfast. She made some bacon and eggs. There were some cinnamon rolls too. The girls ate and got dressed. Everyone got showers and got ready and then we headed out to go shopping. We went to Buy Buy Baby first. This was the first time we had been to this store. It is just like Bed Bath and Beyond for BABIES! It was awesome. There was so much cool stuff. We looked around at all the toys and clothes. We were looking for Christmas dresses and winter coats. Steven found a carhart outfit for Korbynn that he had to buy.
After Buy Buy baby we went to Babies R Us. We were still looking for Christmas dresses and winter coats. Did not have much luck. We ran into another mommy with twins (Boy and girl-5 months old) we chatted for a little bit and asked questions, compared etc. It was fun. I always like talking to other twin moms to see what they have done etc. Nana got the girls some rubber ducks while we were at babies r us.
After babies r us we went to Kohls. They were soooo busy. We went to the kids clothes section and found christmas dresses, sweaters, winter coats and more. We hit the jackpot. Nana bought everything for them. We saw lots of cute outfits in there.
After we left kohls we wanted to get something to eat. Steven decided on City BBQ. Once we got turned around to the right spot we went in and got a table. The girls sat in a highchair at a restaurant for the first time. I think they liked it because they could see everything that was going on. Steven went and ordered our food. Everything was delicious. There was a family that sat down beside us and they had a little girl. She was waving to the girls and they were playing with her. At one point the little girl said OH we all laughed about it. I asked if they were from Ohio. The dad said that they were originally from Ohio. I told him that we were visiting and he asked what part of ohio we lived in. We said London and he said No way! Thats where we are from. Small world. He knew the dwyers and the longs. Crazy.
Once we left city BBQ we went back to Nana’s house. The girls took a nap and we just hung out. The girls love molly. Layla would pet all over her and get excited when she would come up to her. Kenna liked her but only when Kenna was chasing Molly not the other way around.
We ordered pizza for dinner from Jets. The delivered it and then we ate a late dinner. The girls went to bed early and actually slept through the night until 7am which was awesome.
We had a really good day!
I got off work early. I had to fix my phone-that crashed. Once we got packed up and ready to go we got in the car and headed to KY. We stopped to get a quick dinner at burger king and then headed to the freeway. The girls were really good. This was the girls first time out of the state. We only had to stop once in kentucky (for daddy!) He was getting tired and had to get some sunflower seeds. We got to Nanas house around 10:30pm. We just hung out and talked for a little bit and then headed to bed.
The girls got to stay at home with my mom while they finished getting better She loved watching them.
The girls got to stay at home with daddy today. They are feeling alot better.
The girls stayed home with Sandy for the day so that they could be comfortable with their own stuff while they get better.
When we got home from work we headed over to Pauls house to start working on some things. When we got there I got a call from Katina and she said that Hand Mouth and Foot Disease was passed around the daycare. All of the girls symptoms matched with the symptoms of the virus. I decided to keep them home for the next couple days. We headed home after we found out.
Kenna still has a fever, Layla started to get a fever and Kenna got a rash all over her belly
The girls are 8 months old today! I can’t believe how fast time flies…
We went trick or treating in London with Matt, Kendra, Mattalynn and Korbynn. I met Kendra up at the park while we waited for Steven to get off work. Ran into my grandma and Aunt Sue who got to see the girls. After we were done trick or treating (because it started raining) we went to Josh and Judys house for some snacks and to hang out. Had a good night. Headed home after that.
Layla stood up by her self for the first time! Its official mom and dad are in trouble times 2 with these mobile babies. Kenna had a little bit of a fever :( We went to Der Dutchman with Matt, Kendra, Mattalynn and Korbynn. Had a good dinner and then went back to their house for movie night.
Layla fell asleep in her highchair for the first time. It was really cute. She was just so tired she couldn’t wait any longer
Layla tried to stand up for the first time! Kenna started clapping today too!
We got up early with daddy to get ready. Once I fed the girls breakfast they both got baths. Then mommy got a bath and we left to go to the doctors. Dr Papp was excited to see the girls. She said she wants to see pictures over the next year. Then we came home and ate some lunch. Daddy came home from work on lunch break to see his girls. The babies were so excited when he walked in the door. They were sad when he had to leave but he will be back soon. We are going to carve pumpkins tonight (Since halloween is 2 days away!)
