the BOB

Finley and Zane took their first stroll in the BOB today!  We bundled them up, strapped them in, and off we went! They both loved it at first, but then got a little fussy ( I think they were tired) so we had to cut it short!  Although it was brief I am in love with the BOB and I know that they will love it too! They looked great in it!  bob

Bath time!

So bath time is changing…I needed a way to fit both of them in the tub at the same time, so I found these bath chairs and figured we would try them out.  They are not quite ready to sit up on their own or in the other bath seats I’ve seen, so we are trying out these in the meantime. 

bath sensored

I was bathing them separately and that was okay when Gary was home to entertain one while I bathed the other, but when I do bath time alone I want to do them together

How do/did you other moms of twins do bath time?

Rice cereal

Finley and Zane had their first taste of rice cereal this morning! It was of course messy and I don’t know if any of it made it in their bellies!  We will be trying it again tomorrow…oh boy!

More toys!

A couple of weeks ago I started to notice a need for additional entertainment.  The playmats, bouncy seats, and swings were just not cutting it anymore! So I assembled the jumperoo and excersaucer and have added them to the play repertoire…we rotate: bouncy seats, jumperoo/excersaucer, playmats, then rinse and repeat with a walk or two thrown in there some days!  They are really starting to get the hang of it…it is so cool to watch them explore!! They can turn all the way around in the excersaucer and are jumping in the jumperoo!


We really need a playroom! Our living room has turned into Toys-R-Us!! That is little Woods in the picture…he came over to play last week!

Going for a stroll…

…as Sarah cleverly calls a walk so that the dogs don’t get all excited!  We have also adopted the term stroll!!

Today we went on 2 strolls…one around the neighborhood and one at Town Lake! It was their first visit to Town Lake  and they did fabulously! We are going to be a regular for sure!

Question for all the mommies….when did you start putting your babies in the jogging stroller without the car seats?  I set up the BOB stroller last weekend and can’t wait to use it!  Hopefully within the next month or so!! The snap-n-go is great but it is quite the workout when we are off road!!

Time to party!!!


We headed over to the Miller’s to celebrate Blakeley’s birthday this weekend! She was quite the entertainment and we had tons of fun!

Finley napped in Blakeley’s bed!


Blakeley trying out all of her new toys at once…quite the multi-tasker!!


Just a little taste!!

Finley and Zane weren’t ready to stop partying when we got home, so the fun continued in our playroom (aka living room)!!
