Look closely you will see Little ...

Look closely you will see Little Man standing on Aaron’s leg to get to the same level as Little Diva so that he could “help” her eat her dinner (he was supposed to be all done at that point. (Yes he climbed there himself, yes we were watching his EVERY move and yes Aaron was ready to catch him IF he fell. And he closed his eyes due to the flash - he was NOT sleep climbing!)

And this is what happened moments later - swinging like Tarzan….yes after taking this one picture I made him stop…is it bad to take pictures for the sake of posting them on the blog???

Ok so you all thank me for my honesty - I want to thank you for your support. I want to admit something though - I HAVE to be honest not only for me but for the twins. Someday they will look back and want to know about this time, while I want to explain so much to them I also want to explain in the right manner how much I loved them even though it was so tough and how I will always love them no matter how tough it gets. I have a tendency to remember things with rose colored glasses and so I want to be able to remind myself what it was really like - as well as someday I hope to have this blog bound as a book for them (and me). And I have also decided that I don’t want to be known for glossing over how easy this process is because it is not - though I can say it is TOTALLY worth it and your advice helps even if all I do is read it! Oh yeah I also want to say something else - I know that I used to comment on EVERY blog post I read and I have REALLY been trying still but it is IMPOSSIBLE when you are reading and only have one hand - I read all the posts the day they are posted and save them in the reader to comment later because I LOVE each and every one of you BUT I have to admit defeat at some point. As much as I want to comment still I have posts from weeks ago to comment on so here is the deal if I can comment in a week (meaning Aaron has given me some alone time and I am procrastinating doing other things) or it is a post that resonates with me - like a few I have read recently about adoption being first choice. I promise to keep reading EVERY DAY but I cannot type comments with only one hand and I can read with the mouse only. So I apologize but until Little Man will sleep away from me and Little Diva doesn’t fall asleep on the other hand (or I have less to procrastinate from) fewer comments but know I am still reading! Thanks Kerryanne for making me feel ok with this for now anyway! And by the way thanks or continuing to read and make me feel so loved…

So I thought I should let you all know that Saturday Aaron and I tag teamed the Little Man and Little Diva as well as took them shopping for a double stroller that I can load into the car as well as use when I am on my own…we didn’t find one but we enjoyed our day! We also went to the local Barnes & Noble bookstore where I picked up a copy of Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child and a book on how to use my camera better - all of my pictures are currently taken on Auto or Auto w/out the flash and I want to change that. Now when I will find time to read either of these books God only knows but I can now try! I was even able to take a shower BY MYSELF…before we left and that was a dream. The laundry still needs done, the house still needs cleaned, and the list goes on BUT we had a good day. The night was a totally different story - I think Little Man slept a total of two hours (How does that child do it??? He always has more energy than me on about the same amount of sleep.)

Today though my mother-in-law and I left the twins with Daddy and Papa and went to Springfield to look at double strollers and see if we could find some Christmas outfits for the twins. She and I tested every double stroller at Babies R Us and I decided NOT to get the one I went for which meant that I didn’t walk out of the store with a double stroller, I wanted to check out how much the one I really wanted online and see if I could get it cheaper as well as with some free shipping. So we shopped some more there and then went to a few more stores and came home - I never thought shopping could feel so good (have I ever mentioned I am NOT a shopper?) . My mother-in-law found the twins these really cute Christmas outfits - though I am pretty sure they will have a few different Christmas outfits and that is totally ok since we have a few different Christmas celebrations to go to! The outfits even match and a dress just like Little Diva’s for our niece - I so hope that our niece will wear it even if it just for the pictures of the three of them together, it will look so cute. I refuse to put pictures of them in the outfits up until at least Thanksgiving when we can take them of all three of them (though no pictures of our niece will be posted without her parents permission so you will just have to pretend she is in the pictures).

So not that you all care but I found the double stroller I wanted in a pattern I liked better than the one in the store and for $100 cheaper than the one in the store - for those interested click HERE (It should be here later this week…talk about exciting. - ok that is sad, I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of a stroller)
